You may visit this site anonymously as often as you like without providing any personally identifying information (such as your name, address or e-mail address). We do not collect personally identifying information from you except when you specifically provide it by signing up for occasional news and updates, and we protect the information we receive. On average, updates are sent to your inbox every one to three months.

We also use cookies to identify your browser so that we can provide the best link to our site. Please read below for a further explanation of what information we gather and how we use it. We will not sell or rent your name or address to third parties not affiliated with Annetteoppenlander.com.

Cookies

Cookies are electronic tags that most major websites place on your computer in the process of sending your computer a file, such as a Webpage. We use them in a limited fashion as well. In essence, a cookie is a small piece of computer code, placed on your computer the first time you visit our site. It tells us simply when a computer that has previously visited our site returns, and it identifies your computer’s browser and operating system to help us make the best connection. In no event does the cookie we place on your computer tell us anything about your visits to other websites or your use of the Internet in any other way.

If you would prefer not to receive any cookies, most browsers can be set to refuse cookies or to alert you when one is being sent. It is possible, however, that some portions of this site may not function properly if the cookies are disabled.

Links to Other Sites

Our site contains links to other sites that are not under our control. Such other sites do not necessarily follow our privacy policies, and may place their own cookies on your computer. This practice is standard on the Web, and we do not control cookies placed on your computer by third parties whose advertising or links appear on our site.

Security of Private Information

We would like to be able to tell you that the information you provide us is absolutely safe. Unfortunately, several well-publicized instances of computer security breaches make it impossible for anyone to be so confident. The most we can tell you is that we take reasonable steps to protect the information you provide us from theft, alteration or unauthorized inspection. In addition, in rare instances, we will disclose private information to necessary parties to protect our site or other visitors.
