Your privacy is important to us. We provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used. To make this notice easy to find, we make it available on our homepage and at every point where personally identifiable information may be requested.
What We Collect
When visiting Shiny Pebbles your IP address used to access the site islogged along with the dates and times of access, and the addresses of sites that link to us. This information is only used to analyze trends, administer the site, track users movement, enable user comments, and gather broad demographic information for internal use. Most importantly, any recorded IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information. We do not voluntarily share this information with any other organization.
Minimal information about the identity of users leaving comments is retained in order to enable the automatic moderation of future comments. Information about users leaving spam comments on this site are shared with the Akismet spam filtering system. For more information about what information Akismet collects and how it is used, visit their “How it works” page.
This site is powered by WordPress and uses plugins developed by third parties. We endeavor to select plugins that do not track visitors, but cannot guarantee that plugins are always well-behaved. For this reason we encourage both upgrading to a modern browser and the use of a browser plug-in that will make you aware of sites that are gathering tracking information.
The current releases of Firefox, Safari, Chrome and Opera are all modern browsers. Users who insist on using Microsoft’s Internet Explorer should migrate to IE9 as soon as possible. Under no circumstances should anyone still be using IE6. Organizations running older versions of the Windows operating system should be aware that Firefox 4 will run on Windows 2000 and all later releases.
For Firefox users we recommend the Ghostery add-on to expose web site tracking activities. Similar add-ons are available for other browsers.
Do Not Track Header
We recommend that users turn on the “Do Not Track” header in their browser (DNT:1). Firefox 4 supports DNT:1. This site shows whether or not your browser is sending the Do Not Track header. Where possible, we will select WordPress plug-ins that respect the Do Not Track header.
Links to third party Websites
We have included links on this site for your use and reference. We are not responsible for the privacy policies on these websites. You should be aware that the privacy policies of these sites may differ from our own.

The contents of this statement may be altered at any time, at our discretion.
