Who We Are
Our website address is www.livetheoldway.com conducting business as Live The Old Way. We are a small family in the United States operating this website as a way to supplement our income through advertising using Google Adsense, links to affiliates for products we recommend and by selling unique products we produce on our farm. We promise never to sell or transfer any email, contact information or other data exchanged during your visit to this site, whether it’s in the form of cookies placed for website traffic analysis, your name and email address entered when subscribing to our newsletter, for new post notifications or while posting in the comment section on our articles. Even though we do not sell the information of our customers, to comply with the 2020 California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) we offer the opportunity to register an additional “opt out” using a standard pop-up box before proceeding on our site. Among the privacy disclosures below, we also have included several links that you may follow to adjust your internet privacy settings and limit how much, if any, information is gathered and stored. Many of these links will apply to other websites as well as this one. As another way of insuring your privacy while you are visiting our site specifically, we also employ a scrambling feature in our software to mask the last few digits of the IP address that you access our site from.
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
Cookies: We use traffic log cookies to help identify and understand the reach and amount of traffic coming to our site and only use this information for statistical analysis purposes. They enable us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. Cookies are also used to enable the use of “shopping carts” for product purchases. Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website. 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. **Deleting cookies does not mean you are permanently opted out of any advertising program. Unless you have settings that disallow cookies, the next time you visit a site running the advertisements, a new cookie will be added. We will provide more information about ways to disallow cookies in the specifics below.
If you upload images to the website (such as in the comments section) or send them in an email conversation with us, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. This is especially important for images added to the website as other visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
DoubleClick DART cookies
We also may use DART cookies for ad serving through Google’s DoubleClick, which places a cookie on your computer when you are browsing the web and visit a site using DoubleClick advertising (including some Google AdSense advertisements). This cookie is used to serve ads specific to you and your interests (”interest based targeting”). The ads served will be targeted based on your previous browsing history (For example, if you have been viewing sites about visiting Las Vegas, you may see Las Vegas hotel advertisements when viewing a non-related site, such as on a site about hockey). DART uses “non personally identifiable information”. It does NOT track personal information about you, such as your name, email address, physical address, telephone number, social security numbers, bank account numbers or credit card numbers.
