What Are Cookies?

A "cookie" is a small piece of data sent from a website and it's stored onto your computer's hard drive or mobile device.

It enables the website to remember your actions and preferences (such as login information, language, font size and other display preferences) over a period of time, so you don’t have to keep re-entering them whenever you come back to the site or browse from one page to another. Most of the big websites do this too. 

How Does This Website Use Cookies?

The cookies this website uses tracks pages that you have visited and what links you have clicked on. There's also cookies that will remember your preferences when you return to my website (such as language preferences), to deliver it services, to store your preferences, play videos, to enable certain functions, and analytics which counts the number of visitors and page views. This helps improve my website or to analyze a blog post's performance.

This website also uses third party cookies from YouTube, Blogger, Google Analytics, and Google which are all Google products. Mailerlite also uses cookies and it's the email provider for this website.

Refer to the links in the next couple of sections of this privacy policy to see how Mailerlite, Google, YouTube, Google Analytics and Blogger uses cookies.

Google Analytics, Blogger Stats (Analytics) and other Blogger cookies:

This website uses Google Analytics and this website is hosted on Blogger which is a blogging platform that's from Google LLC which also has analytics. I put both of these in the same section because both of them collect the similar information.

Blogger, Google Analytics, and Google collect information such as Internet Protocol Address (IP Address), what pages you visited, the browser you used, the operating system you used,  and which country you're from through cookies.

This information is used to ensure quality of service for performance and security, generate usage statistics, to understand a blog posts performance, and to detect and address abuse.
