ThisPixieCreates uses Google Analytics to analyze trends, traffic, and bounce rate (does a reader leave a site after viewing one page?). When you enter ThisPixieCreates, Google Analytics will place a cookie on your browser. This cookie allows the program to track where you are coming from (general region, no specific addresses), how long you stay on my website, and which pages you view. Once you exit ThisPixieCreates, Google Analytics will no longer track you, until your next visit to ThisPixieCreates.
ThisPixieCreates uses some affiliate links in blog posts. An affiliate link is a link that is unique to ThisPixieCreates, which leads back to a company’s website (ex. Amazon.ca). When a reader clicks on our unique link, a cookie is placed on their browser to track their behaviour. If the reader makes a purchase, ThisPixieCreates may make a small commission.
For the purpose of the Data Protection Act 1998, the data controller in respect of any personal data that you submit to me is This Pixie Creates.
What Information Do I Collect?
I will collect information that you provide to me when you register to use my services/site (such information shall include, but may not be limited to, your name and email address).
Any e-mails, blog comments, responses on Social Media platforms such as Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, and Youtube, or questions written directly to me may be used as blog material for my audience unless specifically requested otherwise. (Part of) these emails, questions or any other feedback may be used in newsletters, or blog posts.

Cookies and Third-Party Advertisements
I publish interest-based advertisements on the Site; that is, ads that are tailored to reflect your interests. To help understand your interests, Google and my other advertising partners will track your behaviour on our website and on other websites across the Internet using cookies.
A cookie is a file containing an identifier (a string of letters and numbers) that is sent by a web server to a web browser and is stored by the browser. The identifier is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. Cookies may be either “persistent” cookies or “session” cookies: a persistent cookie will be stored by a web browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date, unless deleted by the user before the expiry date; a session cookie, on the other hand, will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed. Cookies do not typically contain any information that personally identifies a user, but personal information that we store about you may be linked to the information stored in and obtained from cookies.

I am not responsible for the actions of our advertisers or sponsors. If you purchase a product or service based upon a link from my website, you must take action with that company to resolve any issues and NOT with my website. Any product, claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer, provider or party in question.

This data includes usage data, cookie information, device information, information about interactions between users and advertisements and websites, geolocation data, traffic data, and information about a visitor’s referral source to a particular website.
