About Cookies


A cookie is a string of information that CrochetLeaf.Com stores on your computer, which your browser provides to CrochetLeaf.Com each time you return to the site. I use cookies to help me identify and track visitors, their use of my website, and their website access preferences.

Advertising Cookies

I use third-party advertising companies to serve ads on this website. These companies use cookies and web beacons in their ads to ascertain how many times you've seen an advertisement. I share this information with these companies, but do not provide them with any personally identifiable information for cookie or web beacon use, so they cannot personally identify you with that information from my website.

I have opted out of personalized Google ads for my website. However, if you wish, you may opt out of personalized ads for over 125 different ad networks. Click here to do that.

Third party vendors - on this site I use Google - use cookies to serve ads based on a user's previous visits to this website or other websites.

Google's use of advertising cookies enables it and its partners to serve ads to my visitors based on their visit to my site and/or other sites on the Internet.

As I say, I have chosen to use non-personalized ads on my site. And to quote Google's info for you:

"These ads are targeted using contextual information rather than the past behaviour of a user. Although these ads don't use cookies for ads personalization, they do use cookies to allow for frequency capping, aggregated ad reporting and to combat fraud and abuse."

You may opt out of personalized advertising by visiting Google's Ads Personalization Settings on the  Google ad opt-out page. You need to sign into your Google account to make the changes.

This link from Google provides more information about how Google manages data in its ad products.

Google's Privacy Policy gives information about all of their services, including ads, to help you understand what information they collect, why they collect it and how you can update, manage, export and delete your information held by Google.
