Privacy Policy


Penn Polly Vintage is an informational blog focused on the love of vintage.

I don’t allow tracking-related, third-party ads on the Penn Polly Vintage blog. My blog also does not advertise through Google so there will be no Penn Polly Vintage ads lurking after you when you leave and surf elsewhere.


What Personal Data Is Collected and Why



When you make a comment on the blog or ask me a question you obviously decide to provide your email and name (and possibly your website if it’s relevant). That info is used to approve a comment or answer your question. There is no “surprise, you’re on a newsletter list” thing happening here.

When you make a comment your IP address and browser user agent string are sent through an automated spam detection service. Known spammers have their comments automatically dumped in the trash while other comments are placed in the “to be approved” line.

Embedded Videos

Posts on this blog may include embedded content (this means every once in a while I’ll make a YouTube video and include it in a post).

When you watch the video, YouTube may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged into YouTube. Basically it’s all the stuff YouTube does whenever you watch cat videos.

Links to stuff I may be selling on Ebay

If you click through to see some cool stuff I may be selling on Ebay, Ebay will track you when you land on their site.

Google Analytics

I use the basic level of Google Analytics on the blog. Google Analytics allows me to see very general trends like which blog post is most popular, what time of year I receive the most traffic, and which state provides more visitors to my blog. This helps me to write better blog posts.

Google Analytics does do tracking. It’s Google.
