Grandma's Kite is a site for parent-teacher-child resources and information
about Suzuki music instruction. As a Suzuki teacher, I post information
for current and prospective students. For people interested in receiving
news of new educational tools and information on my site, I have a mailing
list by request only to whom I send such announcements. I do
not and will not share my mailing list with advertisers.
I do advertise products for which I design the graphics, and I list other
clearly identified advertisers on Grandma's Kite. If visitors to Grandma's
Kite follow links to sites where they buy products, I receive credit for
that kind of "traffic direction." That tracking is not
related to my mailing list and never will be.
The company that
tracks web traffic referral is CJ, "Commission Junction," of
whom I am an affiliate, which means I receive credit when people find
commercial websites by following links on my site and make purchases as
a result. The sole purpose of this affiliation is web traffic direction
as described above.
The tracking is done by means of "cookies," which tell the
tracking software if users have clicked directly from Grandma's Kite to
a site at which they have made purchases. The process is done by software
owned by Commission Junction, http://www.cj.com/,
by whom I am registered as a "publisher."
