The LAUNDRYGODDESS site collects no information about you, other than information automatically collected and stored when you visit the site, unless you choose to provide that information to us. Basic information is automatically collected and temporarily stored, which happens when you browse through any web site, such as: your IP address, the name of the domain you use to access the internet (ex. America Online), the date and time you visited our site and which pages you visited. This information is used for statistical purposes only, in order to help us make this site more useful to visitors. Unless specifically stated otherwise, no additional information will be collected.
You do not have to provide personal information to use this blog. If you do choose to provide information about yourself, whether through survey, e-mail, form, etc., your information will only be used to respond to the specific nature of your communication. Your information will not be shared with any other parties. It is important remember that when you provide personal information (e.g., last name, address, phone number) in a online posting that this information is visible to anyone, and may be used by someone in a manner unintended by you. For that reason, the LAUNDRYGODDESS site discourages you from posting any personal information on this or any website.
The LAUNDRYGODDESS site does not disclose, give, sell or transfer any personal information about our visitors, unless required by statute, or law.
This site may log your IP address to help diagnose problems with the web server and to administer this web site. This information is primarily used for general traffic tracking and security.
What is a cookie?
A "cookie" is a small file containing a string of characters that is sent to your computer and stored on your hard drive when you visit a website. When you visit the website again, the cookie allows that site to recognize your browser. Cookies may store user preferences and other information. For example, a cookie would be used to store your name and URL when you post comments, so you do not have to re-enter them every time you visit. You do not have to accept these cookies to visit or use this site (although turning cookies off may impair the site's functionality), and you can choose to refuse the cookies, delete the cookies from your hard drive or turn off cookies at any time by updating your user profile preferences. These cookies do not collect, store or maintain any private, personally identifiable information.
Third Party Advertisements
I have various advertisements with Google and Amazon on this blog. These advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons when they advertise on this site, which will also send these advertisers information (not including your name, address, email address or telephone number) such as your IP address, your internet service provider, the browser you used to visit this site, and in some cases, whether you have Flash installed. The information is basically used for geotargeting purposes (showing Florida real estate ads to someone in Florida, for example) or for showing certain ads based on specific sites visited (such as showing sporting goods ads to someone who frequents sports related sites).
If you would like more information about this practice and would like to know your options in relation to not having this information used by these companies, the visit Network Advertising Initiative.
Again, you can chose to disable or selectively turn off cookies or third-party cookies in your browser settings, or by managing preferences in your internet security program (if you have one) , however, this can affect how you are able to interact with this site as well as other websites. This could include the inability to login to services or programs, such as logging into forums or accounts.

Following is an example of a typical server log entry where the search is for "removing red wine stains", followed by a breakdown of its parts:
126.96.36.199 - 03/Mar/2008 10:12:31 - http://www.google.com/search?hI=en&q=removing+red+wine+stains&btnG=Search &met – Agent: Mozilla/4.0; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; SV1

• 03/Mar/2008 10:15:32 is the date and time of the query;
• http://www.google.com/search?hI=en&q=removing+red+wine+stains&btnG=Search &met is the requested URL, including the search query;

Disclosure Policy for Product Reviews -
The Federal Trade Commission now requires that all sites disclose any relationship that they may have between a product maker/manufacturer, or service provider when posting reviews or opinions about a product (or service).
Just so you know how LaundryGoddess stands….
I do not accept products for free from any manufacturer, nor am I paid to do a review. I never have and I expect that I never will - however if I ever do, I will state it clearly in the post or article.
Any product or service that I may review or comment about on this site has been paid for by myself personally, unless specifically stated otherwise in the article.
The views and opinions expressed in any post are my own personal opinions (if written by me) or the guest author's. Any claim, statistic, or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer or service provider.
Links to products or services on our site will be clearly identified and should be considered affiliate links, which means that we may receive a small commission (believe me, it's really small) if you were to purchase the product or service after clicking on the link.
