Our Website May Use Cookies

What’s a cookie you ask?

A “cookie” is a small file that may be placed on your computer by a service in order to facilitate and enhance your interaction and communication with that service.

When you visit a website that uses cookies, you will be asked to acknowledge or reject the use of cookies. If you agree, the file will then be added to your computer and the cookie will start to analyze web traffic.

Iowa Homeschool Mom uses cookies from a third party service provider to help analyze the traffic on our site. Information generated from this service may include pages viewed on our blog, time spent on our website, and your IP address (or a truncated version of your IP address).

We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes. The stats help us create a better website experience by analyzing which pages our readers have found most helpful, and which ones don’t appear to provide much value.

A “cookie” does in no way give us access to your computer and does NOT share any information about you (other than the information you have voluntarily chosen to share with us).

You can always choose to decline cookies, and you can also turn off the use of cookies at any time in your browser’s setting. You will still be able to access our website should you restrict the use of cookies, but it may interfere with the functionality of your visit.

Continued use of our website without accepting, rejecting, or turning-off cookies, signifies that you’re okay with our use of them.

Security

At Iowa Homeschool Mom, we’re committed to ensuring that your personal information is secure, and we’ll do what we can to protect it.

To help prevent unauthorized access or disclosure, we have put in place physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard the information we collect online. Only those employees who need access to your information in order to perform their duties are authorized to have access to your personally identifiable information.

Unfortunately, due to the nature of the internet, we cannot guarantee that your personally identifiable information will be completely free from unauthorized access by third parties, such as hackers, and your use of our website and services demonstrates your assumption of this risk.
