Information KeepitRealRN.com Gathers & Tracks
KeepitRealRN.com Gathers Two Types of Information About Users:
Information that users provide through optional, voluntary submissions. These are voluntary submissions to receive our electronic newsletters, to participate in our forum and from participation in comments, surveys and giveaways.
Information KeepitRealRN.com gathers through aggregated tracking information derived mainly by tallying page views. This information allows us to better tailor our content to readers’ needs and to help our advertisers and sponsors better understand the demographics of our audience. Under no circumstances does KeepitRealRN.com divulge any information about an individual user to a third party.
KeepitRealRN.com Gathers User Information In The Following Processes:
Optional Voluntary Information
We offer the following free services, which require some type of voluntary submission of personal information by users:
- Email Notifications: KeepitRealRN.com gathers the email addresses of users who voluntarily subscribe for email notifications of new posts. Users may remove themselves from this mailing list by following the link provided in every notification that points users to the subscription management page.
- Comments: Users may comment on blog posts and when they do so they can provide their email address and the URL of their website. This information may be used by Jen to contact the user, but will not be used for any other purpose.
- Giveaways: Users may choose to enter a giveaway by providing such information as their name or email address. This gathered information will only be used to contact the giveaway winners, unless otherwise stated in the giveaway rules. Winners contacted by email may be asked to provide a mailing address in order to receive their giveaway prize. Winner mailing addresses are only used for prize shipments and are never shared with any third party.
- Surveys: KeepitRealRN.com may occasionally conduct user surveys to better target our content to our audience. We sometimes share the aggregated demographic information in these surveys with our sponsors, advertisers and partners. We never share any of this information about specific individuals with any third party.
Consistent with the Federal Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA), we will never knowingly request personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 13 without requesting parental consent.
KeepitRealRN.com tracks user traffic patterns throughout all of our sites. However, we do not correlate this information with data about individual users.

Use of Information
KeepitRealRN.com uses any information voluntarily given by our users to enhance their experience on our site, whether to provide interactive or personalized elements on the sites or to better prepare future content based on the interests of our users.
As stated above, we use information that users voluntarily provide in order to send out email notifications and to enable users to participate in giveaways, surveys or submit comments. KeepitRealRN.com never shares mailing lists with any third parties, including advertisers, sponsors or partners.
We use tracking information to determine which areas of our sites users like and don’t like based on traffic to those areas. We do not track what individual users read, but rather how well each page performs overall. This helps us continue to build a better service.
KeepitRealRN.com creates aggregate reports on user demographics and traffic patterns for advertisers, sponsors and partners. This allows our advertisers to advertise more effectively, and allows our users to receive advertisements that are tailored to their interests. Because we don’t track the usage patterns of individual users, an advertiser or sponsor will never know that a specific user clicked their ad. We will not disclose any information about any individual user except to comply with applicable law or valid legal process or to protect the personal safety of our users or the public.
Sharing of Information
KeepitRealRN.com uses the above-described information to tailor our content to suit your needs and help our advertisers better understand our audience’s demographics.
