Our reputation and integrity is directly related to how we serve you, our readers, and protect your privacy. At the end of this policy we have provided contact information, should you have any additional questions.

Applicability of Policy
To try and bring you offers that are of interest to you, we have relationships with other companies that we allow to place ads on our Web pages, and on the weblogs of our contributors.

This privacy policy applies only to advertising-related information that is collected and stored by HDJ’s and HDJ’s third-party advertising and website traffic analytics systems, when pages of contributor’s weblogs are viewed and advertising media is delivered to those visitors.

Information Collected
HDJ does not obtain any personally identifiable information about you, such as your name, address, phone number, or email address, when you visit one of our blogs. HDJ may, however, automatically collect non-personally identifiable information about you which is specific to how you use the Internet, such as the IP address of the server your computer is logged into, your browser type, your screen resolution setting, the Web pages you visited, which ads have been displayed and whether you responded to any ads delivered by HDJ. This non-personally identifiable information collected by HDJ is used for the purpose of determining which ads to deliver and for measuring aggregate advertising display and response for client and network reporting.

Also, as a result of your visit to our site and to our participating blogs, HDJ’s ad server and web analytics partners may collect non-personally identifiable information such as your domain type, your IP address, your ad display history, and your click stream information.

Limitations on Disclosures
Information collected by HDJ about individual visitors that is stored in the ad server database will not be sold or disclosed to any merchant or third party, except when required by law or court order or as set forth in this Policy. HDJ does disclose aggregate advertising information, which does not identify individuals or any personally identifiable information, to business partners, advertisers, bloggers, and other advertising third parties. HDJ also reserves the right to use such non-personally identifiable information gathered for promoting HDJ products and services or the products and services of HDJ advertisers and sponsors.

HDJ and its advertising partners use browser cookies to enable advertising. Cookies are small files that your Web browser places on your computer’s hard drive to record information about your visit. The HDJ cookie cannot be associated with any personal information about you and HDJ is not able to identify you personally when you visit any blog. HDJ cookies do not damage your system or files in any way. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies but you can change your browser settings to prevent the acceptance of cookies if you desire.

Third party advertisers or third party ad servers that place and present advertising on the HDJ site or participating blogs also may collect information from you via cookies, web beacons, clear .gifs or similar technologies. These third party advertisers and ad servers may use the information they collect to help present their advertisements, to help measure and research the advertisements’ effectiveness, or for other uses. The use and collection of your information by these third party advertisers and ad servers is governed by the relevant third party’s privacy policy and is not covered by HDJ’s privacy policy. Indeed, the privacy policy of these third party advertisers and ad servers may be different from HDJ’s privacy policy. All third party cookies that are used to track or manage user experience are set outside of the HDJ or blog domains.

HDJ openly volunteers its practices of collecting information, its targeting capabilities and its use of cookies. If you have any questions pertaining to this privacy policy and its contents, please direct your correspondence to handbagdujour (at)

We do not retain personally identifiable information when you send a message to us unless you request us to do so.

Notification of Changes to Privacy Policy
This Privacy Policy may be updated from time to time as needed. If HDJ decides to change the privacy policy, we will post these changes on this web page so that you are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances we disclose it. It is your obligation to review this Privacy Statement periodically, and your continued use of the bloggers after changes have been posted will be deemed to be your acceptance of the revised Statement.

  1. Hey there! Do you know if they make any plugins to assist with
    SEO? I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m
    not seeing very good results. If you know of
    any please share. Many thanks!

  2. Some booksellers give on-line rate reductions which are not
    available in store. Besides, financial management covers the process
    of identifying and managing risks. Passing the CPA exam may be a daunting project, especially if you’ve heard
    of the vast number of people who have had to take multiple sections several
    times before ultimately passing the CPA exam.

  3. I visit day-to-day some web pages and information sites to read articles,
    however this webpage provides feature based content.

  4. It is also supposed to encourage your hypothalamus to “reset” your
    system’s metabolic process making it easier for you to digest and process
    the foods that you eat. Pour into sterile fifty percent-pint
    jars, seal, and cool. For those instances, a buddy may provide support
    when necessary.

  5. You can try several things to help speed up the process
    and maybe even lighten the tan up a little bit.
    – Before you step out to go sunbathing, ascertain that your skin is clear from
    any ingredients of makeup creams and cologne
    liquids that would make your skin more disposed to sunburn. Cheaper versions are less likely to coat evenly
    or have colors that do not blend well with a variety of skin tones.

  6. I think that everything posted made a ton of sense.
    However, think on this, what if you were to write a killer headline?
    I mean, I don’t wish to tell you how to run your website, however suppose
    you added a title to maybe grab a person’s attention? I
    mean Privacy
