I recognize that your privacy is important. This document outlines the types of personal information I receive and collect when you use my HomeLoverIdeas.com website, as well as some of the steps I take to safeguard your information.
I hope this will help you make an informed decision about sharing personal information with me.
HomeLoverIdeas.com strives to maintain the highest standards of decency, fairness and integrity in all our operations. Likewise, I am dedicated to protecting our customers', consumers' and online visitors' privacy on my website.
HomeLoverIdeas.com collects personally identifiable information from the visitors to my website only on a voluntary basis.
Personal information collected on a voluntary basis may include name, postal address, email address, company name and telephone number.
This information is collected if you request information from me, participate in a contest or sweepstakes, and sign up to join my email list or request some other service or information from me.
The information collected is internally reviewed, used to improve the content of my website, notify our visitors of updates, and respond to visitor inquiries.
Once information is reviewed, it is discarded or stored in my files. If I make material changes in the collection of personally identifiable information I will inform you by placing a notice on my site.
Personal information received from any visitor will be used only for internal purposes and will not be sold or provided to third parties.

A web beacon is a transparent image file used to monitor your journey around a single website or collection of sites. They are also referred to as web bugs. They are commonly used by sites that use third-party services to monitor traffic. They may be used in association with cookies to understand how visitors interact with the pages and content on the pages of a website. I use third-party advertising companies to serve ads on my website.
Some third-party advertisements may be provided by Google, which uses the DART cookie to serve ads. This cookie enables Google to serve ads to users based on their visits to sites on the Web.
Browsers can be set to accept or reject cookies automatically, or notify you when a cookie is being requested. Privacy software can be used to override web beacons. Taking either of these actions should not cause a problem with our site, should you so choose.
This website is directed to adults; it is not directed to children under the age of 13. I operate my site in compliance with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act, and will not knowingly collect or use personal information from anyone under 13 years of age.
In some cases, I may collect information about you that is not personally identifiable. I use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the site, to track users' movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. The information collected is used solely for internal review and not shared with other organizations for commercial purposes.
If HomeLoverIdeas.com is sold, the information I have obtained from you through your voluntary participation in my site may transfer to the new owner as a part of the sale in order that the service being provided to you may continue.
In that event, you will receive notice through this website of that change in control and practices, and we will make reasonable efforts to ensure that the purchaser honors any opt-out requests you might make of us.
I encourage you to periodically review this policy so that you will know what information I collect and how I use it.
