When you engage in certain activities on this site, you may be asked to provide certain information about yourself by filling out and submitting an online form. It is completely optional for you to engage in these activities. If you elect to engage in these activities, however, you may be required to provide personal information, such as your name, mailing address, e-mail address, and other personal identifying information.
When you submit personal information, you understand and agree that Runnin With Scizzors may transfer, store, and process your information in any of the countries in which Runnin With Scizzors maintain offices, including without limitation, the United States.
Runnin With Scizzors collects this information in order to record and support your participation in the activities you select.

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
This website uses Google Analytics to help analyze how visitors use this site. Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are small text files placed on your computer, to collect standard internet log information and visitor behavior information in an anonymous form. Note the deliberate emphasis of anonymous, as no personally identifiable information, is collected about you unless you explicitly submit that information on this website.
The anonymous information generated by Google Analytics cookies about your use of this website is transmitted to Google – not Runnin With Scizzors. This information is processed to compile statistical reports on website activity for this site only. Runnin With Scizzors uses these reports to evaluate aggregate visitor usage so that we can optimize the content, and its marketing, to better meet your needs. This is essential for Runnin With Scizzors to operate this website as a free to use service.
A cookie is a small file containing data which is saved to the computer or device you're using when you visit a website. When you return to a website, these cookies are read by that site and often used to identify you and your preferences. No personal information, such as your name or address, is stored in cookies.
Remember that as cookies are device based, if you use our website on your desktop and on your mobile, cookies will be saved to both devices.
There are different types of cookies we use depending on what we need them for.
A cookie can either be persistent (long term) or session (short term) based. We use both. Persistent cookies remain on your device after you have closed your browser window. These cookies are used to remember you when you next return to a website, or for remarketing purposes, so that when you are on a different website we can show you an advertising banner. Persistent cookies stay on your browser until their expiry date or if you should decide to delete them, which you can do through the browser you're using.
A session cookie only stays on your browser for as long as you are using a particular website; it is deleted as soon as you close the browser. Session cookies are needed, among other things, to remember who you are when you move from page to page on a website.
A cookie can also be a first party cookie or a third-party cookie. First party cookies are those set by the website you visited. All other cookies are third party. We use both. We only work with trusted partners when using third party cookies. These include performance cookies, which help us track visits or revenue to partner websites, analytics cookies (i.e. Google Analytics) which help us understand how much web traffic or app traffic we are receiving, and marketing cookies (i.e. Facebook, Google) which help us track the performance of our marketing campaigns, remarket similar products or services to you (including via social media), and create 'lookalike' audiences to find new customers. If you view content (i.e. a video) powered by a third party on our website (i.e. YouTube) they will set their own cookies on your browser. All our partners have their own cookie policies, which you can refer to.
Below is a sample of significant third party cookies we use on our website for the purposes of analysis or marketing.
There are many different reasons we collect cookies.
Understanding our Customers: To track all the pages you visit and buttons you click on, so we can understand what is relevant to you and therefore create a more personalised experience for you
Personalisation: To link what we know about you (as our customer) to your behaviour on our website, so that we can understand more about you and create a more personalised experience for you.
Marketing: To market new products or features to you via other channels like social media, and to create similar audience profiles (sometimes called 'lookalike audiences') we can market to, so we can target advertising to new customers
Third party Connections: third party cookies can be used to help you navigate third party content on our site, to help their marketing and analysis or where the third party is our service provider and uses cookie data to provide us with insights into our website and how people use it.
