Privacy Policy

Thanks for visiting MID Blog. Your privacy on the Internet is of the utmost importance to us. At MID Blog, we want to make your experience online satisfying and safe.

The following privacy statement discloses the information gathering and dissemination practices for MID Blog.

Website Usage Tracking

The information tracked includes Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, MIME type, Internet service provider (ISP), referring and exit pages, platform type, date and time stamp, and number of clicks. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information, and MID Blog does not correlate this information with data about individual users.

This information allows us to better tailor our content to readers’ needs, analyze trends, administer the site, track user’s movement in the aggregate, gather broad demographic information for aggregate use and to help our advertisers and sponsors better understand the demographics of our audience. Because MID Blog derives its revenue mainly from sponsorships and advertising, providing such aggregated demographic data is essential to keeping our service free to users. Under no circumstances does MID Blog divulge any information about an individual user to a third party, except to comply with applicable law or valid legal process or to protect the personal safety of our users or the public.
