Accrued Interest Privacy Policy

Accrued Interest uses third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit this website. I make enough money from these ads to buy lunch every third week... at McDonalds... off the dollar menu...

Anyway, 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.

One of my ad vendors is Google. They want to make sure I tell you this...

  • Google, as a third party vendor, uses cookies to serve ads on this site.
  • Google's use of the DART cookie enables it to serve ads to your users based on their visit to your sites 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.

For what its worth, I get requests for advertisments on the site all the time. I've decided for security and privacy reasons that I'm only going to accept ads through large, national third-party vendors. For now that is just Google and Forbes. I figure that should keep the risk of AI's readers catching malware from the site to a minimum.

Thanks for reading.
