- Log Files
Like many other websites, I use log files to help learn about when, from where, and how often traffic flows to this site. The information in the log files include:

All of this information is not linked to anything that is personally identifiable. None of this information will be shared with others.
- Cookies and web beacons
Like nearly all WordPress blogs, this site stores “convenience” cookies on your computer whenever you leave a comment. The cookies record the name, email address, and URL that you enter when you submit a comment so that you won’t have to re-type that info the next time you leave a comment.
Third-party advertisers may also place and read cookies on your browser and/or use web beacons to collect information. Tomtravel2 has no access or control over these cookies. You should review the respective privacy policies on any and all third-party ad servers for more information regarding their practices and how to opt-out.
If you wish to disable cookies, you may do so through your web browser options. Instructions for doing so and for other cookie-related management can be found on the specific web browsers’ websites.
Users may choose to receive email blog updates via MailChimp by submitting an email address to the email subscription form. I use a secure opt-in subscription system and I reserve the right to contact subscribers with information related to this website and blog. Subscribers may unsubscribe anytime and every email delivered will contain an “Unsubscribe” link.
When leaving a comment, users must submit a name and email address. To combat spam, the WordPress blogging platform also records the IP address of anyone submitting a comment.
Again, none of this information will be shared with anyone without your direct permission.
Tomtravel2.com does not knowingly collect or solicit Personally Identifiable Information from or about children under 13 except as permitted by law.
