Privacy Policy

Hello! I'm Dee Young, owner of Cape Days: Your Go To Cape Cod Guide at affordable-cape-cod-vacations.com (the "website" or "site).

One of the things I hold dear is my privacy. I expect the same is true for you. So I want you to assure you that the privacy of the information you share with me is as important to me as it is to you.

These companies use cookies and web beacons in their ads to ascertain how many times you've seen an advertisement. I share this information with these companies, but do not provide them with any personally identifiable information for cookie or web beacon use, so they cannot personally identify you with that information from my website.
