Our site’s tracking is very simple, and thus our privacy policy is very simple. We use Google Analytics for visitor, as many websites do. Google Analytics inserts a cookie (unless you have all cookies disabled) to track our traffic, including what search keywords or other websites led visitors here, how long visitors stay on different pages, and how many pages visitors tend to visit before they leave.

Google Analytics is anonymous by nature, in the sense that no names or other personally identifying data are capable of being tracked. However, location and other usage data are tracked. Google also collects this data via cookies through the Google AdSense ads on this website and is capable of providing location-specific and contextual ads based on your current site visits and your previous web history.

We use this aggregate data to make this site better for visitors. For example, we use it to determine which pages are being most used and least used, which potential information visitors who come to this site want but cannot find (such as French grammar or vocabulary questions we don’t have a page for yet), and other similar issues in order to make this a better site.

If you want to opt out of Google Analytics tracking, Google has made this easy to do with this browser plugin at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout/. In addition, Google Analytics’ own privacy policy is available for your perusal at https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en.

We don’t sell, trade, or transfer in any way personally identifiable information to outside parties. Even if we had that information, we wouldn’t, but we don’t have any personal information in the first place.

We link to third-party sites we believe are useful. Of course, we have no control over them or the cookies or other policies they have in place, so we would encourage you to check out their own privacy policies for more information. If you have feedback about the content or policies of these sites, feel free to contact us at admin@thefrenchpost.com with your comments or concerns.

In accordance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, we do not collect information from anyone under 13. Additionally, while we believe this site, as a G-rated language learning site, is appropriate for all ages, it is only directed at visitors aimed 13 and older. We require that any minors visit and use this website only with appropriate permission.

By using our site, you consent to this privacy policy.

When or if our privacy policies change, we will post the updated version here. This version is current as of September 5, 2015.

Again, please contact us with any questions or comments at admin@thefrenchpost.com.

Thank you for visiting!
