Privacy Policy

I take your privacy incredibly seriously, so it’s important to let you know what information my site collects and how it’s used. This policy only applies to this website.

What information does this site collect?

Automatically-Collected Information: We automatically collect certain information about you or the device with which you access this website. For example, when you access this website we will log your IP address, operating system type, browser type, referring websites, pages you viewed, and the dates/times you accessed this website. We may also collect information about actions you take on this website, such as links clicked.

Cookies: We may log information using cookies, which are small files which ask permission to be placed on your browser by a website. Cookies allow websites and applications to respond to you as an individual by gathering and remembering information about your preferences. We may use both session cookies, which expire when you close your browser, and persistent cookies, which stay on your browser until deleted.

Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website, by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us.

You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. This may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website.

How is my information used?

We may use the information we collect in the following ways:

  • To operate and maintain the website.
  • To send you promotional information, such as newsletters. Each email sent to you by Do You Even Paleo will provide a link to opt out of further mailings.

We may share your information with third parties when you explicitly authorize us to share your information.

Additionally, this website may use third-party service providers to service various parts of the website. Each third-party’s use of your personal information is dictated by their respective privacy policies.

Do You Even Paleo currently uses the following third-party service providers:

Mediavine Programmatic Advertising

The Website uses Mediavine to manage all third-party advertising on the Website. Mediavine serves content and advertisements when you visit the Website, which may use first and third-party cookies. A cookie is a small text file which is sent to your computer or mobile device (referred to in this policy as a “device”) by the web server so that a website can remember some information about your browsing activity on the Website. The cookie may collect information relating to your use of the Website, information about your device such as the device’s IP address and browser type, demographic data and, if you arrived at the Website via a link from a third-party site, the URL of the linking page.

First party cookies are created by the website that you are visiting. A third-party cookie is frequently used in behavioral advertising and analytics and is created by a domain other than the website you are visiting. Third-party cookies, tags, pixels, beacons and other similar technologies (collectively, “Tags”) may be placed on the Website to monitor interaction with advertising content and to target and optimize advertising. Each internet browser has functionality so that you can block both first and third-party cookies and clear your browser’s cache. The “help” feature of the menu bar on most browsers will tell you how to stop accepting new cookies, how to receive notification of new cookies, how to disable existing cookies and how to clear your browser’s cache. For more information about cookies and how to disable them, you can consult the information at www.allaboutcookies.org/manage-cookies/.

Without cookies you may not be able to take full advantage of the Website content and features. Please note that rejecting cookies does not mean that you will no longer see ads when you visit our Site.
