I will never sell or rent the list of email addresses that have subscribed to the stamp price change notification list. I do not send advertising emails to the list: I only email the list when stamp prices are going to change – which is about once a year.
This site displays some ads for affiliated companies – for example, the USPS, iContact, and Amazon. When you click a link for one of those companies an anonymous tracking cookie will be set so that site you are landing on knows that you came from my web site. The little bit of revenue that this site earns (and which enables me to cover the cost of sending out the stamp price change email newsletter) is due to the affiliated companies.
I use several Google services on the web site. Google Analytics gathers anonymous analytics and statistics about the site and in particular how it is being used by visitors – the goal of that information is to improve the site.
In order for Google to effectively track visitors and keep anonymous statistics, Google places a tracking cookie when you visit this site. If you would prefer to avoid having that cookie on your device, you can view this site in “privacy mode” and the site will function properly for you. Another option is to change the settings in your browser so that your browser will not accept cookies. If you have already received the tracking cookie and would like to remove it, all you need to do is run a search using your preferred search engine for “how to clear cookies in your browser” (for example, in Chrome press Control+Shift+Delete and then choose to clear cookies from the past hour).
