Some of these advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons when they advertise on this site which will send these advertisers information including your IP address, your ISP, the browser you used to visit this site, and in some cases, whether or not you have Flash installed. This is generally used for geotargeting purposes (showing Oregon schools for naturopathy ads to someone in Oregon, for example) or showing certain ads based on specific sites visited (such as showing gluten-free baking ingredients ads to someone who frequents gluten-free baking sites). This website’s third-party advertiser is Google’s Adsense program.
