How this blog uses Cookies:

April’s Happy Place is hosted using Google's Blogger. For more information on how Blogger uses cookies, visit their privacy policy.

Comments: If you leave a comment on my site, you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. This is so you don't have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

Ads: Because I sometimes use display advertising here on this blog, my site uses third-party cookies to collect information (such as browsing history). This is to make the ads you see more relevant to you. For example, if you've recently done an internet search for "Jane Austin books," you might see an ad for Pride and Prejudice on my site. 

If you would like to opt out of display advertising, you can do so here.

Google Analytics: Cookies are also collected for site stats (so I can see how many visitors I've had on my blog). I use Google Analytics to crawl my site so I can get insights on visitors and pageview information. For more information, view Google's privacy policy.

Embedded Content From Other Websites

Posts or widgets on this blog may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, Instagram feed, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

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

It sounds a lot more complicated than it really is. Basically, if you see a YouTube video embedded in one of my posts, the information collected will be the same as if you had watched the video directly from YouTube.
