Collection of Personal Information
When visiting Like a Bubbling Brook, traffic cookies may be used. Overall, traffic cookies help us provide you with a better website, by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us.
Surveys and Giveaways
We may also collect contact information including e-mail address, demographic information, or other information relevant to reader surveys and/or giveaways.

Third Party Cookies
We use third party advertisements on LikeaBubblingBrook.com to support our site (such as Google through the Google AdSense program).

This is generally used for geotargeting purposes (showing Chicago related ads to someone in Chicago, for example) or showing certain ads based on specific sites visited (such as showing cooking ads to someone who frequents cooking sites).
You can choose to disable or selectively turn off our cookies or third-party cookies in your browser settings, or by managing preferences in programs such as Norton Internet Security. However, this can affect how you are able to interact with our site as well as other websites.
