Users should be aware that when you are on Dot Com Women you could be directed to other sites that are beyond our control. There are links to other sites from Dot Com Women that take you outside our site. For example, if you click on a banner the click takes you off Dot Com Women.

About IP Addresses
Dot Com Women collects IP addresses for the purposes of system administration and to report aggregate information to our advertisers. An IP address is a number that’s automatically assigned to your computer whenever you’re surfing the Web. Web servers — the big computers that “serve” up Web pages — automatically identify your computer by its IP address.
When guests request pages from Dot Com Women, our servers log the guests’ IP addresses. We do not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable. This means that a user’s session will be logged, but the user remains anonymous to us.
By showing how and when guests use the site, cookies help us see which areas are popular and which are not. Many improvements and updates to the site are based on such data as total number of visitors and pages viewed. This information is most easily tracked with cookies.
To keep you in control of your personal information and the communications directed to you, we allow you to opt-out of the Ezines and Newsletters at any time. You can do so by clicking on the ‘Unsubscribe’ link in all our mailings.
