OMG Journal Privacy Policy:

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, OMG Journal collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. OMG Journal’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how OMG Journal’s visitors use its website. From time to time, OMG Journal may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

OMG Journal also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on blogs. OMG Journal only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to OMG Journal’s websites choose to interact with OMG Journal in ways that require OMG Journal to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that OMG Journal gathers depends on the nature of the interaction . OMG Journal does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.


A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. OMG Journal uses cookies to help OMG Journal identify and track visitors, their usage of OMG Journal website, and their website access preferences. OMG Journal visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using OMG Journal’s websites, with the drawback that certain features of OMG Journal’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers

If OMG Journal, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that OMG Journal goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of OMG Journal may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.


Ads appearing on any of our websites may be delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by OMG Journal and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.


Comments and other content submitted to our Akismet anti-spam service are not saved on our servers unless they were marked as false positives, in which case we store them long enough to use them to improve the service to avoid future false positives.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, OMG Journal may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in OMG Journal’s sole discretion. OMG Journal encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. If you have a account, you should also check your blog’s dashboard for alerts to these changes. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
