About Browser / Analytic Cookies
This website's sitemap may have been submitted to Google Search Console for site ranking purposes in Google's search engine. Google uses computer code called cookies which can ascertain your general location, computer IP address, and type of device used (desktop / laptop / cell phone / tablet) for the purpose of tracking internet use by the general public. However, that information is not monitored by MarcPanepinto.com, nor by this website's host or designer. Your browser -- whether Google Chrome, Apple Safari, Mozilla FireFox, Microsoft Edge, etc -- may track your browsing history. Neither Marc Panepinto nor this website's host / designer have access to your browser history. It is recommended that you routinely delete your browser and download history, and clear your cache on a weekly basis. Consult your browser support for how to do that.
This website's webhost, Wix, does gather and aggregate minimal non-identifying information such as which pages and posts are visited the most, at what time of day on which days, on which social media any pages or posts are shared, and which countries visitors are coming from. This helps us know what kind of content readers are most interested in, so that we can provide more of it. Neither Mac Panepinto, this website's designer, nor Wix can see your IP address, or city.
You are encouraged to check this disclosure page on subsequent visits to this website for further information in the unlikely event that changes to the analytics software have been made.
