My name is Sara A. Noë, and I am the founder of On the Cobblestone Road © 2016-2021. I am committed to maintaining the trust and confidence of all visitors to my website. In particular, I want to assure you that On the Cobblestone Road is not in the business of selling, renting, or trading email lists with other companies and businesses for marketing purposes.

In this Privacy Policy, I’ve provided detailed information on when and why personal information is collected, how it is used, the limited conditions under which it may disclosed to others, and how it is kept secure.

I take your privacy seriously and take measures to provide all visitors with a safe and secure environment.

Google Analytics & Google Search Console

When someone visits On the Cobblestone Road, Google Analytics and Google Search Console are used as third-party services to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behavior patterns. This is done to track data such as the number of visitors to the various pages on the site.

This information is processed in a way that does not identify anyone or any personal information. I do not make nor allow Google to make any attempt to find out the identities of visitors to this website. This data is used to help me determine errors, bounce rates, daily visitor numbers, keywords, post/page performance, etc. so I can make appropriate updates and provide the best user experience.

Website Comments

I encourage positive and/or constructive feedback on the articles I publish On the Cobblestone Road.

However, I have a strict no-troll policy. All comments are submitted to the moderator for approval before they appear on the website. I do not tolerate comments that are malicious, grossly off topic, or blatantly spam. This is not the place to be hateful or push religious/political agendas.

All comments are approved or rejected at my sole discretion. I am dedicated to making sure this is a friendly community for writers, authors, artists, and other creatives.

When comments are submitted, you are entitled to use an alias or information that completely hides your identity. However, once a comment is submitted to the moderator, relevant details (name, email, website) that you provide are stored. These details are saved so that On the Cobblestone Road can display your comment back to you and anyone viewing the comment sections on the site. I do not verify information entered, nor do I require verification.

Changes to This Privacy Policy

I may make changes to the Privacy Policy in the future; however, the most current version of the policy will govern the processing of your personal data and will always be available to you.

If I make a change to this policy that, at my sole discretion, is material, I will notify you by an update or email if possible. By continuing to access or use these services, you agree to be bound to the terms of this Privacy Policy.
