Runblogger values your privacy and does not share personal information with 3rd parties nor do we store any information about your visit to this blog other than to analyze and optimize your content and reading experience through the use of cookies.

Our 3rd party advertisers include Google Adsense, Amazon Affiliates, Criteo, Sovrn Networks, and several affiliate networks (see below). These services may use cookies to help them tailor ads to individual interests, and we have no access to or control over these cookies as they are served by a third party. Below are additional details about each service:

a. Google Adsense: You can typically opt-out of Adsense interest based advertising by clicking on the little blue AdChoices arrow at the top-right corner of the ad. You can also review Google’s Content Network Privacy Policy.

Runblogger.com is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon.com.

e. I use various Affiliate Advertising programs (Commission Junction, Avantlink, Shareasale, Linkshare, Skimlinks) to advertise specific products on Runblogger. When you purchase a product through one of these links, the sale is recorded (price and product name) and I get a small commission. No personal information is collected in the process.
