Privacy policy

Updated: December 11, 2020

We take the privacy of our visitors very seriously. Below we reveal what types of personal information we might collect when you visit and how we safeguard your information. Note that we will never sell your personal information to a third party.

Log files

Like most websites, we collect data in log files. The information in the log files may include your internet protocol (IP) address, internet service provider (ISP), browser, the time you visited the website, and the pages that you visited. None of this information is linked to personally identifiable information. Statistical analyses of these log files can allow us to examine patterns of traffic, improve website administration, and provide a better user experience.


We use cookies. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and tell us about, for example, your user preferences. They in no way give us access to personally identifiable information about you. As with log files, the cookies help us to analyze traffic, make improvements to the website, and provide a better user experience.

If you wish to disable cookies, you can do so via your browser settings. Please check your browser’s help section for instructions. Note, however, that disabling cookies may affect how you are able to interact with certain websites. For example, you may no longer be able to log in to various forums and other accounts.

Embedded content from other websites

Some articles on this website may include embedded content, such as YouTube videos. Embedded content from other websites such as YouTube can behave in the 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.


In order to help spam detection, when visitors leave comments on our website, we collect the data shown in the comments form, along with the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string. If the comment is approved, it is published on the website, along with a Gravatar profile picture. To learn if the visitor has a custom Gravatar profile picture, an anonymized string is created from the visitor’s email address (also called a ‘hash’) and provided to the Gravatar service. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: If the visitor doesn’t have a custom Gravatar profile picture, a generic one is provided.


To support this website, we allow third-party advertising companies to serve advertisements on the website. Some of the advertisers, such as Google, may use cookies and web beacons in their ads. Web beacons are invisible objects that are embedded in a web page. They are used by advertisers to learn if a user has visited the page. As with cookies, web beacons do not provide the advertisers with personally identifiable information about you. The advertisers use the cookies and web beacons to deliver more targeted advertisements to you based on the websites that you have visited. We have neither access to nor any control over the advertisers’ cookies and web beacons. To learn more about how Google uses your data, please click here.

Advertising policy is an educational website devoted to helping people to improve their health and fitness. Advertisements related to steroids and pharmacies are not permitted.

Affiliate links

Affiliate links may appear on this website. Affiliate link clicks are tracked for analytical purposes. These include an (optionally hashed) IP address and user ID (when logged in). Click information is retained in the local database indefinitely for analytic purposes and optional export.

Links to other websites

This website contains links to other websites. We are not responsible for the privacy policies of these websites. This privacy policy applies solely to this website. If you use the other websites, we encourage you to check their privacy policies.
