Notice To All Bloggers To Update Their Disclosure Policy

I just received an email from Google that they will now be displaying third party ads via the adsense code on our blogs and that we should now update our privacy policy to let our visitors know. I don’t actually have a privacy policy so I added the following to my disclosure policy.

It seems that Google will now be serving third party vendor ads via their Adsense ads so you need to be aware that from 23rd May 08, via Adsense, we will use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit this blog. These companies may use information (not including your name, address, email address, or telephone number) about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices about not having this information used by these companies, click here.

If you want to know which third party vendors are serving ads via Google click here.

You can also “Opt out” of targeted advertising delivered by NAI member ad networks by clicking HERE!

I suggest others do the same.

Of course you can turn this off by disabling image ads, but take note this may affect your revenue.
