The Saving Asian is written and edited by yours truly, Thao! :)

No pictures or comment can be used without the written consent of Thao. I understand that sometime my images may be shared across the internet, and whilst that's perfectly fine I do ask that people link back to this website as the source.

As the owner of this blog, I do accept forms of cash for paid topic insertions. I will and do accept, and keep free products, services, travel, event tickets, and other forms of compensation from companies and organizations. Even though I do receive compensation for my posts, I always give my honest opinion, findings, beliefs, or experiences on those topics or products. BUT if I don't like something that has been sent to me I will either refrain from posting about the item(s) or continue to create an honest (and potentially negative) review, depending on the brand's preference. 

When it comes to posting sponsored content I DO NOT ACCEPT text that is pre-written by anyone other than myself (aka: guest posts), purely because I want to keep this blog completely true to my style and personality. I do not accept compensation for guaranteed positive reviews.

Google's advertising requirements can be summed up by Google's Advertising Principles. They are put in place to provide a positive experience for users. https://support.google.com/adwordspolicy/answer/1316548?hl=en

I use Google AdSense Advertising on my website.

Google, as a third party vendor, uses cookies to serve ads on my site. Google's use of the DART cookie enables it to serve ads to my users based on their visit to my site and other sites on the Internet. Users may opt out of the use of the DART cookie by visiting the Google ad and content network privacy policy.

We have implemented the following:

      • Demographics and Interests Reporting

I, along with third-party vendors, such as Google use first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookies) and third-party cookies (such as the DoubleClick cookie) or other third-party identifiers together to compile data regarding user interactions with ad impressions, and other ad service functions as they relate to my website.

Opting out:

Users can set preferences for how Google advertises to you using the Google Ad Settings page. Alternatively, you can opt out by visiting the Network Advertising initiative opt out page or permanently using the Google Analytics Opt Out Browser add on.

California Online Privacy Protection Act

CalOPPA is the first state law in the nation to require commercial websites and online services to post a privacy policy. The law's reach stretches well beyond California to require a person or company in the United States (and conceivably the world) that operates websites collecting personally identifiable information from California consumers to post a conspicuous privacy policy on its website stating exactly the information being collected and those individuals with whom it is being shared, and to comply with this policy.

See more at: http://consumercal.org/california-online-privacy-protection-act-caloppa/#sthash.0FdRbT51.dpuf

Users will be notified of any privacy policy changes:

      • On my Privacy Policy Page

Users are able to change their personal information:

      • By emailing me

Does my site allow third party behavioral tracking?

It's also important to note that we allow third party behavioral tracking.

COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act)

When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under 13, the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission, the nation's consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children's privacy and safety online.

I do not specifically market to children under 13.

Changes in Privacy Policy

I reserve the right to change this Privacy Policy at any time by posting the revised Privacy Policy in the “Privacy Policy” section of the website. The revised Privacy Policy is effective immediately when posted on The Saving Asian.

It is the responsibility of each user to review the website and the Privacy Policy periodically to learn of any revisions to this Privacy Policy.
