What Personal Data We Collect and Why:


If you comment on our site, you can opt-in to save your name, email address, and website in cookies. This is for your convenience to prevent re-entering your details for future comments. These cookies will last for one year.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

The cookies currently on are related to Google Analytics, Double Click, and OptinMonster.

If you’d like to disable cookies, see below.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g., videos, images, articles, etc.). Such embedded content from other websites behaves exactly as if you visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with the embedded content, including tracking your interaction if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

By default, the ThirstyAffiliates plugin collects visitors’ IP addresses every time they click an affiliate link for statistical purposes.

Who we share your data with

On, if you opt-in to the email list, HubSpot’s primary tracking method is using cookies but will check the lead’s IP address when no cookie is found. If no IP address is found but the unique link (clicked from an email) locates them in the database, then HubSpot will re-cookie them with the correct information.

For questions regarding HubSpot, please contact them at HubSpot.Com

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is to automatically recognize and approve any follow-up comments instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

What rights you have over your data

For more information about interest-based ads, or to opt out of having your web browsing information used for behavioral advertising purposes by companies that participate in the Digital Advertising Alliance, please visit

Where your data is sent

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

This information may be used by Divot Dude and others to analyze and track data, determine the popularity of certain content, deliver advertising and content targeted to your interests on our website and other websites, and better understand your online activity.
