I, Ruth Marlene Friesen, as the owner, hope this will help you in your decision to visit this site from time to time, and to not be afraid to interact with me.
Aloe-Vera-and-Handy-Herbs.com strives to maintain the highest standards of decency, fairness and integrity in all operations. The goal is to protect our customers, consumers, and online visitors to this website, while offering helpful information and links for shopping.
The only personally identifiable information I receive is what you volunteer when you submit some information, or a question, or when you sign up to receive my news letter by email. Generally this will only be your email address, and perhaps your name or username. Further information should only be required to ship a purchase you have made, and that will go only be to a third party whose link you followed from our site. So of course, I will have no knowledge of those details.
If any cookies are collected at all, it would be by the web browser system identifying that someone from that computer has returned to the site. That does not give me any information about you other than your computer number, and my STATs might show what percentage of visitors come from which countries. That still does not tell me who you are. Any cookies you run into on this site should be harmless. (Unless you gain weight by looking at pictures of edible cookies).
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies by modifying your Web browser; however, if you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the site.
A web beacon is a transparent image file used to monitor your journey around a single website or collection of sites. They are also referred to as web bugs and are commonly used by sites that hire third-party services to monitor traffic. They may be used in association with cookies to understand how visitors interact with the pages and content on the pages of a web site, however, I would have no knowledge of, or access to that information, and unable to use it myself.
(Note for Nov/26/20: I am discontinuing Google ads with this rebuild of this website).
Your browser (program) can be set to accept or reject cookies or notify you when a cookie is being sent. Privacy software can be used to override web beacons. Taking either of these actions shouldn't cause a problem with this site, should you so choose.
This website is directed to adults; it is not directed at children under the age of 13. I operate this site in compliance with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act, and will not knowingly collect or use personal information from anyone under 13 years of age.
If aloe-vera-and-handy-herbs.com is ever sold, (not likely!) the information we have obtained from you through your voluntary participation in this site may transfer to the new owner as a part of the sale in order that the service being provided to you may continue. In that event, you will receive notice through our website of that change in control and practices, and we will make reasonable efforts to ensure that the purchaser honors any opt-out requests you might make of me.
