Advertising partners and other third parties may also use cookies, scripts and/or web beacons to track visitors to our site in order to display advertisements and other useful information. Such tracking is done directly by the third parties through their own servers and is subject to their own privacy policies.

Controlling Your Privacy

Note that you can change your browser settings to disable cookies, if you have privacy concerns. Disabling cookies for all sites is not recommended as it may interfere with your use of some sites. The best option is to disable or enable cookies on a per-site basis. Consult your browser documentation for instructions on how to block cookies and other tracking mechanisms.

Special Note About Google Advertising

Any advertisements served by Google, Inc., and affiliated companies may be controlled using cookies.

About Google advertising: What is the DoubleClick DART cookie? The DoubleClick DART cookie is used by Google in the ads served on publisher websites displaying AdSense for content ads. When users visit an AdSense publisher’s website and either view or click on an ad, a cookie may be dropped on that end user’s browser. The data gathered from these cookies will be used to help AdSense publishers better serve and manage the ads on their site(s) and across the web. Users may opt out of the use of the DART cookie by visiting the Google ad and content network privacy policy.

Things you should know about our Analytical Data

The Google Analytics features we've implemented on this website are based on Display Advertising (e.g., Remarketing, Google Display Network Impression Reporting, the DoubleClick Campaign Manager integration, or Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting).

Using the Ads Settings, visitors can opt-out of Google Analytics for Display Advertising and customize Google Display Network ads.

We use Remarketing with Google Analytics to advertise online. Third-party vendors, including Google, may show you ads on sites across the Internet. Self Sufficient Me and third-party vendors, including Google, use first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookie) and third-party cookies (such as the DoubleClick cookie) together to inform, optimize, and serve ads based on someone's past visits to our website.

For more information you can visit Google Analytics' currently available opt-outs for the web.

Link Advertising

Some links (not all) on Self Sufficient Me are automated link advertising. These links can be shown on key words and link to affiliates. All link advertising automated by a third party like Google or VigLinks will have a disclosure either next to the link or when you hover over it with your curser to show it's an ad. 

Why Advertise on our websites?

As an online publisher it costs money to provide this free online information service for our visitors, therefore, we try to recapture some of our costs through display and link advertising as well as other affiliate arrangements. Thousands of hours go into creating and maintaining this website so we can maintain and develop the best resource possible for our readers.
