Additional Procedures for Gathering Information

A cookie is a small file on your hard drive that allows us to display your previously defined user information when you visit the Website. Usage of a cookie does not link to any personally identifiable information while on our web site. We use both session ID cookies and persistent cookies. For the session ID cookie, once users close the browser, the cookie simply terminates. A persistent cookie is a small text file stored on the user\'s hard drive for an extended period of time. Cookies were implemented to allow user-id customization of web site information. Cookie related information is used by BlogRateDirectory.com to facilitate the user\'s transactions and to improve service and better match the user\'s needs. You may block cookies by changing the settings on your browser (contact your ISP for help), but doing so may limit the features and services contained within the Website.
We use log files, as well as other data in our databases, to analyze site and user behavior, troubleshoot technical problems, resolve disputes, address complaints and prepare aggregated reports that we share with others. This includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the web site, track users\' movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.
Referral & Wish List Services
If a user elects to use our referral service for informing a friend about our site, we ask them for the friend\'s name and email address. BlogRateDirectory.com also uses email addressed entered by our users to share user wish lists with their chosen contacts.
