We will not (nor do we have any current plans to) sell, trade or rent our visitors personal information to any third party sources or vendors outside of Affordable Salamanca. However, general user demographic data pooled from our total site visitors will be aggregated and collected for our own understanding of our audience base. This information will be used to tailor content that our users find most valuable. This same aggregated data may also be shared with interested advertisers, trusted affiliates or business partners in order to add third-party value to the site, post relevant outside content for our users and to cover any site costs.
The goal of the Affordable Salamanca website is to provide our visitors with as much information as possible. This includes providing links to sites, resources and products relevant to Salamanca but that are not necessarily our own products or services. We do not control the content or links that appear on these sites and they are not representative of the views of AffordableSalamanca.com. All additional third-party sites are merely to provide an additional viewpoint or product different from our own.
These sites may include their own privacy policies and customer service policies that are subject to their own terms. We urge you to protect yourself by reading them before providing your personal information to third party vendors that are not directly apart of the AffordableSalamanca product line.
As the owners of this site speak with personal, genuine experience in regard to the third party products they do fully love and support. We also aim to make it clear when we are speaking from authenticity in trying a product or service of a third party vendor, or if we have been paid to review.
By using this Site, you signify your acceptance of this policy in its entirety and the terms of service. If you do not agree to this policy, please do not use our Site. Your continued use of the Site following the posting of changes to this policy will be deemed your acceptance of those changes.
