Like most website operators, Fabulessly Frugal, LLC collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request.

From time to time, Fabulessly Frugal, LLC may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Fabulessly Frugal, LLC also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on https://fabulesslyfrugal.com/ blog posts. Fabulessly Frugal, LLC only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.
