Policies and Disclosures


Occasionally I eat them! And apparently so does Word Press, Amazon, Mailchimp, and Google Analytics. They don’t only eat them, they give them away first. The cookies that I’m referring to are the little bit of coding placed on your computer to track which of my pages you like most (meaning the ones that you visit, ) and a few bits more information that I really don’t know about. Word Press, who hosts my blog and site, uses these to tell me which of my posts are the most popular.. Google Analytics also uses them for the same reason and to keep up with how much I’m making off my ads. You can choose to turn off the cookies and not allow them through the settings of your internet browser.

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

Embedded Content

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Affiliate Links

I participate in Amazon’s, Home Science’s, and Woodpecker Craft’s affiliate link programs, which gives me a tiny percent of a sale when an individual uses the link I’ve provided to make a purchase. It does not change the cost for you and give me a very small percent of the sale.


I like mine, and I’m guessing you like yours too. When you sign up for my emails or exchanges, you give your name, email, and other information. I will not share yours unless you give me permission when you sign up to do one of my homeschool exchanges. Signing up for an exchange is giving permission to give your contact information to others. I will share your information only with the people you are exchanging with unless otherwise noted. Never will I sell your information. When you sign up for my newsletter, Mailchimp, a company I use to create and send my newsletter and notices, gets your email address too. Here is Mailchimp’s privacy policy regarding you.

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

How Long We Retain your Information

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
