3rd Party Service Providers

I advertise on Google, Facebook & other advertising networks. I also use their "remarketing" & "retargeting" services, which means that I have the ability to "follow you around the web". I promise not to abuse this. I simply use this feature to follow up with you to provide you with content that I believe you will be interested in. I never know who is receiving the ad; by name or any other personally identifiable information. If you would like to opt out of receiving my remarketing ads, click here to edit your "Ad Personalization" settings.

Also, I have enabled "Google Analytics Advertising Features" on my website which means that I receive additional data inside my Google Analytics account such as "network impression reporting", "demographics reporting" & "interest reporting".

I do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 18. If you are a parent or guardian and you are aware that your child has provided personal data, please contact me at nick@nickgraff.com.

If I become aware that I have collected personal data from children without verification of parental consent, I will take steps to remove that information.
