Privacy Policy
Effective 11 July 2012

This website, Sizes.com, provides information on a variety of topics. Some pages include links to other websites, but this Privacy Policy applies only to Sizes.com and not to any other website. If you follow a link in Sizes.com to another website, that site's privacy policy, if any, applies, and we are no way responsible for that external site's practices.

Collecting personal information

We do NOT collect any personally-identifiable information from users browsing this site. So we do not store any information about you and, not having such information, we can not rent, sell or share it with other parties.

If you send us an email using the link at the bottom of a page, that email will contain whatever name and return address you provide in the “from” line, and other data in the header. We save these emails as an aid to revising and improving Sizes.com pages.

We do not merge any personally-identifiable information from emails you send us with other anonymous data collected on our website.

Sizes, Inc. (a Delaware corporation) is the sole owner of all information collected on this site.

We do not save cookies on your machine, but advertisers may.

Information entered into forms

We save in a log the words users enter into the “search this site” form. We do this so that we can know what topics people want to find on the site. We use that information in planning new pages. However, we save only the words entered. We do not save anything about who entered the words. We have no record connecting a word typed into the search engine with the identity of the person who typed it.

Any information you enter into a form on a page in Sizes.com (for example, in one of the calculators) other than the search form is processed on your own computer. It is not sent back to us. (For the technically well-informed: no GET or POST actions.)

Keeping track of the site: collecting anonymous data

We record anonymous data such as traffic logs, numbers of visits or clicks on a given page, pages viewed or links to our website. We do this to improve the site's navigability, and to determine what topics should be given priority for further development. We use IP addresses for gathering website statistics. We also store IP addresses on our server because if our site becomes corrupted such information is helpful in discovering the cause of the corruption.

We aggregate this anonymous data as part of managing, maintaining and reporting on use of our website. We may share this anonymous data with third parties for the limited purpose of reporting on use of our website, or to comply with applicable law. We do not rent, sell or share any anonymous data collected on this website with third parties for marketing purposes.

Advertising

We have opted out of the Google feature which enables it to show ads based on user interest categories, and visitation; information from this site is not used by Google to help create interest categories. However, some advertisers may have cookies on your machine from previous visits to other sites, and may use information (NOT including your name, address, email address or telephone number) about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices about not having this information used by these companies, visit google.com/privacy_ads.html.

Changes in the Privacy Policy

As this website evolves, this Privacy Policy may be revised from time to time to accommodate changes in the website. We reserve the right to amend this Privacy Policy at any time, for any reason. Notice of such amendments will be posted as an updated Privacy Policy on this website, and an effective date will be shown. Users are encouraged to occasionally revisit Sizes.com's Privacy Policy.
