Policies

Revised June 23, 2009


Link Policy

IMPORTANT: Any links where I receive monetary compensation have the rel=nofollow tag on them. This includes all affiliate links and links within paid review posts.

Links that are not compensated, such as in my free blog reviews, my blogroll or site/product reviews where I do not receive compensation, will not have this tag. This is in keeping with Google Webmaster rules.

Links to certain popular news and reference sites may also be nofollowed for SEO purposes.

Links in the randomly rotating blogroll are given to people who’ve been helpful to me, have been consistent top commentators and supporters of OpTempo, who offer a valuable product or service or who are friends and family. These links are not for sale so even don’t ask.


Comment Policy

Comments may be moderated, edited or deleted if they are off-topic, spammy, offensive or otherwise inappropriate. I do moderate any comments with links in them just as an extra spam precaution but I’ll publish them intact as long as there is no problem with them. Occasionally I’ll remove links from a comment but leave the comment otherwise intact. New commentators are automatically moderated in order to block serial comment spamming.


Privacy Policy

The privacy of visitors to Optempo is important to me.

Personal information is not required to read the content presented here. Should comments be open, commenting on a particular article requires the voluntary submission of your name and email address and, optionally, a web site URL. Your email address will never be sold, licensed or disclosed to third parties without your consent other than by court order. By leaving a comment on this site you may receive emails related to that comment but no other emails will be sent without your further consent.

Visitor information is gathered via basic web logs and other tracking methods. The statistics gathered may include your IP Address, geographic location, browser type, operating system information, referrer and exit links and other such data. This information is used to provide statistical reports that can be used to improve this site and is not stored in a personally identifiable format.

Cookies and/or Web Beacons are used to maintain personal settings for this site and to facilitate visitor tracking and advertisements. Some advertisements on this site may be provided by Google Adsense. They require publishers of their ads to inform visitors that these ads may use the DART cookie that permits them to serve ads based on your personal profile from visits to other sites and from your searches on Google. You may choose to opt out from the DART cookie by requesting this option at their site: Google ad and content network privacy policy. Other advertisers have their own privacy policies and you should refer to their sites for this information since they may be different and they are responsible for their policies.
