The Hanes Wine Review's Use of Cookies

Many websites now use "cookies" to provide useful features to their visitors by providing customizable and personalized services.

A cookie is a small amount of data that is sent to your browser from a web server and stored on your computer's hard drive. For example, a website may use cookies to store and sometimes track information about you, your preferences, or the pages you last visited.

Your browser software can be set to reject all cookies, or to ask you if you would like to accept or decline a cookie from a particular site before it is set. Most browsers offer instructions on how to reset the browser to reject cookies in the Help section of the toolbar. You should know, however, that if you reject a cookie, certain functions and conveniences of a site may not work properly.

To the best of Hanes's knowledge, few if any cookies are employed by The Hanes Wine Review. Hanes doesn't even know how to create a cookie. His sister knows how to bake cookies, though. They taste good. Most of the time.

In a feeble attempt to create some income to defray the costs of maintaining the website, The Hanes Wine Review does include online advertising, such as banner ads. Certain websites have developed relationships with third-party advertising servers to display these advertisements on their sites. By clicking on one of these banner ads, you will be taken to another site with different privacy policies. These third party ad servers may also use cookies to collect non-personal information on your preferences and interests via the advertisement you decide to view. The ads appearing on this website are delivered to you by Google, The Hanes Wine Review's web advertising partner. Information about your visits to this website, such as number of times you have viewed an ad (but not your name, address, or other personal information), is used to serve ads to you.

Inclusion of the other sites by links does not imply any endorsement of the material or information on the other sites.

Hanes encourages users to review the Privacy Policy of each linked site, as Hanes cannot be responsible for the privacy practices of other sites. Hanes is also not responsible if you see him when he sometimes walks around his apartment naked with the shades up.
