Use of Cookies and Web Beacons
A "cookie" is a small data text file that is placed in your browser and allows me to recognize you each time you visit this site. Cookies themselves do not contain any personal information, and Speech Topics Help does not use cookies to collect personal information. Cookies may also be used by 3rd party content providers.

We may use cookies to help you personalize your online experience. Cookies are identifiers that are transferred to your computer's hard drive through your Web browser to enable our systems to recognize your browser. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize the sites pages, or register with any of our site's services, a cookie enables me to recall your specific information on subsequent visits.

A web beacon is a transparent image file used to monitor your journey around a single website or collection of sites. They are also referred to as web bugs and are commonly used by sites that hire third-party services to monitor traffic. They may be used in association with cookies to understand how visitors interact with the pages and content on the pages of a web site.

We may serve third-party advertisements that use cookies and web beacons in the course of ads being served on our web site to ascertain how many times you've seen an advertisement. No personally identifiable information you give us is provided to them for cookie or web beacon use, so they cannot personally identify you with that information on our web site.

Browsers can be set to accept or reject cookies or notify you when a cookie is being sent. Privacy software can be used to override web beacons. Taking either of these actions shouldn't cause a problem with our site, should you so choose.

The Google Advertising Cookie
We use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit our website. These companies may use information (not including your name, address, email address, or telephone number) about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you.

Some third-party advertisements may be provided by Google, which uses cookies to serve ads on this site. Google uses the DART cookie, which enables it to serve ads to our users based on their visits to this site and other sites on the Web. You may opt out of the use of the DART cookie by visiting the Google ad and content network privacy policy.

To summarize it: Google may use interest based advertising where they recognize the types of webpages users visit across the Adsense network. This helps advertisers reach users on the basis of their interests.

Advertising Disclosures
This website is written and maintained by Jim Peterson.

Whilst I endeavor to check all facts, the views and opinions expressed on all pages are purely my own, or send in by my visitors. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer, provider or party in question.

I run third party advertisements through Google which are clearly identified as such.

I also have several affiliate advertisers and sponsors that include, but are not limited to Amazon.

If you click on their ad or text link and buy something, I get a small commission. If you prefer not to do this you can also go to Amazon and buy direct through them in which case I would not receive a commission. Either way the product will cost you the same amount.

I always give my honest opinions, findings, beliefs, or experiences on the topics or products I write about.

Speech Topics Help is:
  • A participant in the Amazon Europe S.Γ  r.l. Associates Programme, an affiliate advertising programme designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to
