The privacy of our visitors to the hundreds of websites on the Positive Thinking Network is important to us.
On the Positive Thinking Network, we recognize that privacy of your personal information is important.
Here is information on what types of personal information we receive and collect when you use and visit the websites on the Positive Thinking Network, and how we safeguard your information.
We never sell your personal information to third parties.
As with most other websites, we collect and use the data contained in log files. The information in the log files include your IP (internet protocol) address, your ISP (internet service provider, such as AOL or Cox Cable), the browser you used to visit our site (such as Internet Explorer or Firefox), the time you visited our site and which pages you visited throughout our site.
Cookies and Web Beacons
We also use third party advertisements on the web sites to support the Positive Thinking Network. Some of these advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons when they advertise on our site, which will also send these advertisers (such as Google through the Google AdSense program) information including your IP address, your ISP , the browser you used to visit our site, and in some cases, whether you have Flash installed. This is generally used for geotargeting purposes (showing New York real estate ads to someone in New York, for example) or showing certain ads based on specific sites visited (such as showing cooking ads to someone who frequents cooking sites).
DoubleClick DART cookies
We also may use DART cookies for ad serving through Google’s DoubleClick, which places a cookie on your computer when you are browsing the web and visit a site using DoubleClick advertising (including some Google AdSense advertisements). This cookie is used to serve ads specific to you and your interests (”interest based targeting”). The ads served will be targeted based on your previous browsing history (For example, if you have been viewing sites about visiting Las Vegas, you may see Las Vegas hotel advertisements when viewing a non-related site, such as on a site about hockey). DART uses “non personally identifiable information”. It does NOT track personal information about you, such as your name, email address, physical address, telephone number, social security numbers, bank account numbers or credit card numbers. You can opt-out of this ad serving on all sites using this advertising by visiting http://www.doubleclick.com/privacy/dart_adserving.aspx
You can chose to disable or selectively turn off our cookies or third-party cookies in your browser settings, or by managing preferences in programs such as Norton Internet Security. However, this can affect how you are able to interact with our site as well as other websites. This could include the inability to login to services or programs, such as logging into forums or accounts.
Deleting cookies does not mean you are permanently opted out of any advertising program. Unless you have settings that disallow cookies, the next time you visit a site running the advertisements, a new cookie will be added.
Nearly two decades ago, Captain Dave (aka Dr. Dave) started writing and creating websites as he sailed around the world on his sailboat, SV Exit Only. Those early websites and books evolved into the Positive Thinking Network you see today.
Captain Dave lived overseas for twenty-eight years in his globe trotting lifestyle until he became a Flying Doctor with the Indian Health Service. He worked for ten years in the American Southwest flying out to deliver health care to the Apache, Hopi, Hualapai, Havasupai, and Colorado River Tribes.
Dr. Dave completed his work with the Indian Health Service in Arizona, and now runs the Positive Thinking Network full time either from his catamaran or his Land Rover Defenders.
The Positive Thinking Network has a global outreach sending a positive message to 196 countries around the world, and it is your definitive source of positive thinking on the World Wide Web.
With hundreds of positive websites, and more than a million pages and podcasts downloaded each month, it's where you come to learn everything you want to know about positive thinking. The Positive Thinking Network focuses on positive self-talk, positive spirituality, winning the battle against depression, PTSD, and positive adventure.
Hundreds of family safe websites are ready to fill your mind with positive things. Thousands of positive graphics and affirmations push your mind in a positive direction and help you install a positive operating system and win the battle for a positive mind.
The Positive Thinking Network works around the clock to change the world, one person at a time, one web page at a time, one podcast at a time, and one graphic at a time.
The Positive Thinking Network does not operate from a fixed location on planet earth.
Sometimes we operate from the seven seas on our catamaran Exit Only which has sailed over 50,000 miles on a global circumnavigation.
At other times we operate from our Land Rover Defenders traveling overland around the world.
The World Wide Web makes it possible to remain connected with the Positive Thinking Network in every country we visit.
You can also follow our migrations on facebook.
We continually strive to improve the hundreds of websites that make up the Positive Thinking Network.
If you have any suggestions, comments, or need to contact the Positive Thinking Network, you can email us at ptn mail @ yahoo . com. We will get back to you on our next internet connection.
We look forward to hearing from you, and godspeed as you create your own adventures.
