For starters, Howtotuts.com is a blog site that features articles mostly based on the personal experiences of the site owner as well as data that has been gathered personally by the blog site owner, whose information could be accessed here.

Howtotuts.com normally does not collect any information from those who randomly visit the blog site. However, the blog site keeps a count of the visitors at real time, but this real time visitor count feature does not, in any way, allow the user, the generator, or any of those involved in the site, gain access to any information about the visitors.

The only time the blog site can gain access to any information regarding a visitor is when the visitor comments or reacts on a post or shares it via the automatic share buttons for Facebook, Twitter, e-mail, and the like on each article. But that information would just be regarding whatever detail the visitor has already shared about himself on social media. For one time visitors or those who would want to comment on any post in the blog site without logging on to any Internet portal, he will be required to provide at least a valid email address.

Aside from email addresses and social media pages, this blog site may also, from time to time, collect the following details from our regular visitors: Name, demographics, other contact information aside from those provided online, job titles, income range, interests, as well as preferences. These will be through a random survey conducted on the website from time to time, with the aims of first and foremost, know what kind of web users this blog site attracts the most, if it is actually getting the kind of users this blog site is intended for in the first place, and devise a strategy on what the blog site owner could do to adopt to the kind of users this blog site attracts every too often. This is all in the effort of always making sure that what is in this blog site will always be relevant and fresh.

The blog site owner could also from time to time use the information that is provided us in sending out online promotional material regarding new posts, new features, or new products on the site, in the form of emails, social media prompts, or occasionally, postal mail if it were a promo or contest conducted on the site which a visitor has won. But always be assured that the owner of this blog site will never, ever sell our visitors’ information. The blog site owner has also set up safeguards such as web captcha and the like in the effort of warding off unwanted and unauthorized intruders to the site.
