A Word About the Content on Milwaukee Consumer…

Before you read the legal disclosure and privacy policies, we wanted to talk about the content we publish on Milwaukee Consumer.

Our mission is to provide Milwaukee-area consumers with valuable information to help them save money.

Occasionally we post links that result in a commission if a site visitor makes a purchase. These links are called affiliate links and are used across the internet by hundreds of thousands of websites. Examples of companies that we have affiliate relationships with are Amazon.com, Groupon, and LivingSocial. Making a purchase by following our links doesn’t result an any additional cost for you and provides us with income to help offset the costs of running this website.

The potential to earn a commission is never a consideration for us when deciding whether or not to post about a particular deal. In fact, 95% of the posts we publish have no such links in them.

We don’t publish so-called “sponsored posts” where a company pays money to have us post about them. If we were to do such a post, it would be clearly disclosed.

We’ve worked hard to earn the trust of our readers. If you have any questions about the content on our site, please contact us by filling out the form on the Contact Us page linked to above.

Thanks,

Jon and Jason

and now the dry legal Privacy and Disclosure policies…

Privacy Policy for MilwaukeeConsumer.com

The privacy of visitors to MilwaukeeConsumer.com is important to us.

We do not share email addresses with any third party.  If you subscribe to our email list, your address will be used only to send emails from Milwaukee Consumer.  You can unsubscribe at any time.

At MilwaukeeConsumer.com, we recognize that privacy of your personal information is important. Here is information on what types of personal information we receive and collect when you use and visit  MilwaukeeConsumer.com, and how we safeguard your information. We never sell your personal information to third parties.

Log Files
As with most other websites, we collect and use the data contained in log files. The information in the log files include your IP (internet protocol) address, your ISP (internet service provider, such as AOL or Shaw Cable), the browser you used to visit our site (such as Internet Explorer or Firefox), the time you visited our site and which pages you visited throughout our site.

Cookies and Web Beacons
We do use cookies to store information, such as your personal preferences when you visit our site. This could include only showing you a popup once in your visit, or the ability to login to some of our features, such as forums.

We also use third party advertisements on MilwaukeeConsumer.com to support our site. Some of these advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons when they advertise on our site, which will also send these advertisers (such as Google through the Google AdSense program) information including your IP address, your ISP , the browser you used to visit our site, and in some cases, whether you have Flash installed. This is generally used for geotargeting purposes (showing New York real estate ads to someone in New York, for example) or showing certain ads based on specific sites visited (such as showing cooking ads to someone who frequents cooking sites).

DoubleClick DART cookies
We also may use DART cookies for ad serving through Google’s DoubleClick, which places a cookie on your computer when you are browsing the web and visit a site using DoubleClick advertising (including some Google AdSense advertisements). This cookie is used to serve ads specific to you and your interests (”interest based targeting”). The ads served will be targeted based on your previous browsing history (For example, if you have been viewing sites about visiting Las Vegas, you may see Las Vegas hotel advertisements when viewing a non-related site, such as on a site about hockey). DART uses “non personally identifiable information”. It does NOT track personal information about you, such as your name, email address, physical address, telephone number, social security numbers, bank account numbers or credit card numbers. You can opt-out of this ad serving on all sites using this advertising by visiting http://www.doubleclick.com/privacy/dart_adserving.aspx

You can choose to disable or selectively turn off our cookies or third-party cookies in your browser settings, or by managing preferences in programs such as Norton Internet Security. However, this can affect how you are able to interact with our site as well as other websites. This could include the inability to login to services or programs, such as logging into forums or accounts.

Deleting cookies does not mean you are permanently opted out of any advertising program. Unless you have settings that disallow cookies, the next time you visit a site running the advertisements, a new cookie will be added.
