Use of Aggregated Data

BudgeTools is interested in improving the website and may develop and offer new features and services. We monitor aggregated data regarding the use of the Site for marketing purposes and to study, improve, and promote the use of the website. In connection with such purposes, BudgeTools may share aggregated data with third parties collectively and in an anonymous way. Disclosure of aggregated data does not reveal personal information about individual Site users in any way that identifies who they are or how to contact them.

Use of Cookies

To enable features at the website, BudgeTools may assign one or more "cookies" to your Internet browser. Cookies, among other things, speed navigation through our website, keep track of information so that you do not have to re-enter it each time you visit our website and may provide you with customized content. A cookie is an Internet mechanism composed of a small text file containing a unique identification number that permits a web server to send small pieces of information or text by means of your browser and place them on your computer's hard drive for storage. This text lets the web server know if you have previously visited the web page. Cookies by themselves cannot be used to find out the identity of any user.

We use cookies to collect and maintain aggregated data (such as the number of visitors) to help us see which areas are most popular with our users and improve and update the content on our site. While browsing our website, you also provide us with information that doesn't reveal your identity -- what type of destination you're exploring, for example. We use this aggregated data only as explained in this Privacy Policy. We do not connect aggregated data to any name, address, or other identifying information.

You may occasionally receive cookies from unaffiliated companies or organizations to the extent they place advertising on our site or are linked to the site. These third-party cookies may collect information about you when you "click" on their advertising or content or link. This practice is standard in the Internet industry. Because of how the Internet operates, we cannot control the collection of this information by these third parties, and these cookies are not subject to this Privacy Policy.

Links Provided To Other Sites

BudgeTools may provide links to a number of other websites that we believe might offer you useful information and services. However, those websites may not follow the same privacy policies as BudgeTools. Therefore, we are not responsible for the privacy policies or the actions of any third parties, including without limitation, any website owners whose websites may be reached through this website, nor can we control the activities of those websites. We urge you to contact the relevant parties controlling these websites or accessing their on-line policies for the relevant information about their data collection practices before submitting any personal information or other sensitive data.
