Personal information. ConnectingIRL does not sell or disclose any personal identifiable information it collects, nor does it collect information for third parties unless you click on a link that is clearly an advertisement and takes you away from the ConnectingIRL website.

ConnectingIRL collects and maintains a list of email addresses, Twitter account names, Facebook names, and other social media accounts on a strictly voluntary basis to provide readers with automatic updates to the ConnectingIRL content. That information is never sold. It is shared with third party subscriber services, such as Google Feedburner, to service reader subscriptions. However, readers may opt out of social media sites or subscriptions at any time by following links in emails or on the corresponding sites. The email address used for posting comments is for verification purposes only and is in no way made public on the website.

Links to other sites. ConnectingIRL contains a variety of links to other sites. Some third-party advertisers and affiliate advertising networks collect information about your shopping habits (never your name, address, email address, or phone number) to provide you with advertisements for good and services that interest you.

ConnectingIRL also provides links to external websites, which are neither owned nor controlled by ConnectingIRL. When users click on a link and leave the ConnectingIRL website, ConnectingIRL is not responsible for that other site and does not guarantee nor warrant any of those products or services, although we do make every effort to provide you with quality, reliable links.

Disclosure: We may occasionally include affiliate links on ConnectingIRL. If you go through them to make a purchase, we will earn a commission. Keep in mind that ConnectingIRL links to these companies and their products because of their quality and not because of the commission received from your purchases. The decision is yours, and whether or not you decide to buy something is completely up to you.
