Cookies and Web Beacons
Frugal in SA uses cookies to store information about visitors’ preferences, to record user-specific information on which pages the site visitor accesses or visits, and to personalize or customize blog content based on visitors’ browser type or other information that the visitor sends via their browser.


I may use third party advertisements on Frugal in SA to support this blog. Some of these advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons when they advertise on this blog, which will also send these advertisers (such as Google through the Google AdSense program) information including your IP address, your ISP, the browser you used to visit my blog, and in some cases, whether you have Flash installed. This is generally used for geo-targeting purposes to show, for example, Johannesburg real estate ads to someone in Johannesburg, or to show certain ads based on specific sites visited, such as showing cooking ads to someone who frequents cooking websites.


You can chose to disable or selectively turn off our cookies or third-party cookies in your browser settings, or by managing preferences in programs such as Norton Internet Security. However, this can affect how you are able to interact with my blog as well as other websites.
