What personal data we collect and why we collect it
As with most other websites, we collect and use the data contained in the log files using partners like Google Analytics. The data collected includes but is not limited to your IP, browser, date, time, duration of visit, and which pages were visited. This data is analyzed in aggregate and is not shared with any advertiser or third party.
Cookies and Web Beacons

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 indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after one day.
We use third-party advertisements on Leblonblue.com to support our site. Our partners include Google AdSense, Google Ads, Google Analytics, WordPress, Jetpack, and Mailchimp. Together with our partners, we may use technology such as cookies and web beacons when they advertise on our website. These cookies and web beacons will send information including but not limited to your IP address, your ISP, the browser you used to visit our site. This is generally used for geotargeting purposes. For example, showing New York real estate ads to someone in New York or showing certain ads based on specific sites visited, such as showing cooking ads to someone who frequents cooking sites.
DoubleClick DART cookies
We also may use DART cookies through Google’s DoubleClick – including some Google AdSense advertisements. This cookie is used to serve ads specific to you and your interests (”interest based targeting”). As a result, the ads served will be targeted based on your previous browsing history. For example, if you have been viewing sites about Las Vegas, you may see Las Vegas hotel advertisements.
DART does not use 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.
You can choose to disable or selectively turn off our cookies or third-party cookies in your browser settings. However, this can affect how you interact with our site as well as other websites and may impede you from logging in to services or programs, such as logging into forums or accounts.
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. You can read more about opting-out below.
Google advertising cookies
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.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g., videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
Who we share your data with
We do not sell your personal data to any third party.
All data is collected and stored by our partners and providers, as described in this policy. We only affiliate with well-established providers who also share our value of protecting our user’s privacy.
How long we retain your data
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.
Data collected by our analytics and advertisement partners are governed by their own policies. You can read more about how Google Analytics retains your data here.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Where we send your data
We take measures focused on information security, such as using HTTPS on all of our pages.
