Privacy Policy

Here are the basics:

Squarespace (the host for this website) does keep track of IP addresses as people visit the site, but this does not include personally identifiable information. HFC Media (Caffeinated PDX's parent company) does not collect any of your information unless you sign up to receive email newsletters, and we do not share or sell that information.

At some point, we may allow Google and others to place ads on the page. Some of these ads will use the cookies stored on your computer to tailor ads more towards your personal preferences. Here's what Google says should be included in the Privacy Policy:

  • Third party vendors, including Google, use cookies to serve ads based on a user's prior visits to your website.
  • Google's use of the DART cookie enables it and its partners to serve ads to your users based on their visit to your sites and/or other sites on the Internet.
  • Users may opt out of the use of the DART cookie by visiting the advertising opt-out page. (Alternatively, you can direct users to opt out of a third-party vendor's use of cookies by visiting the Network Advertising Initiative opt-out page.)

If you're really worried about the advertisers, we strongly recommend clicking that opt-out page link.

Here's something else Google tells us:

If you have not opted out of third-party ad serving, the cookies of other third-party vendors or ad networks may also be used to serve ads on your site, and should be disclosed in your privacy policy as well in the following manner.

  • Notify your site visitors of the third-party vendors and ad networks serving ads on your site.
  • Provide links to the appropriate vendor and ad network websites.
  • Inform your users that they may visit those websites to opt out of cookies (if the vendor or ad network offers this capability). Users can opt out of some, but not all, of these cookies in one location at the Network Advertising Initiative opt-out website

Over time, we may sign up with others to provide services on the site, and if necessary, we will modify this privacy policy to give you more information. If you have questions, use the form on the contact page to send them and we will provide you as much information as w can.

Update 10.14.13

We also use Google Analytics and Yahoo's MediaNet services.
