Privacy Policy

Oz Media Services LLC, dba “Oz Media” (“us,” “we,” or “our”) operates The Weather Spot’s website (the “Service”). This page informs you of our policies regarding collecting, using, and disclosing personal information when you use our Service. We will not use or share your information with anyone except as described in this Privacy Policy. We use your Personal Information for providing and improving the Service. By using the Service, you agree to the collection and use of information per this policy.

Our Privacy Policy, In Plain English

We understand that these privacy policies can be hard to read. While we recommend you read the full policy, here’s a plain English summary of its contents.

We make every attempt to collect as little information as possible on our users while still being able to maintain an adequate level of service. In most situations, this is only your name and e-mail address. However, in some situations, such as contests and giveaways, we may need to ask for more information for shipping or legal reasons in your specific locality.

We don’t sell your information to third parties, nor disclose it to authorities without due cause or process. However, we and select third parties track your IP address and other information that isn’t linked to your personal identity for services like Google Analytics, spam blocking, and advertising through partners such as Ezoic and Google AdSense.

We have taken steps on our end to further protect your privacy. We don’t accept advertising from select categories with historically poor privacy practices (the full list is below, under “Advertising”). We are also working to limit our use of third-party cookies, ahead of the end of third-party cookie support in the Chrome web browser this year.

Clicking on links on our site may take you to third parties, some of which where we may be compensated for certain actions. Remember, when you leave our site, the privacy policy of the site you visit applies, not ours.

And now for the full policy.

Information Collection And Use

While using our Service, we may ask you to provide us with certain personally identifiable information that can be used to contact or identify you. Personally identifiable information (“Personal Information”) may include, but is not limited to:

  • Name
  • E-mail address

How This Data is Used

The above information is used solely by Oz Media and The Weather Spot for communication between us and you, the user. This data is not sold nor accessible by third parties.

Log Data

We collect information that your browser sends whenever you visit our Service (“Log Data”). This Log Data may include information such as your computer’s Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser type, browser version, the pages of our Service that you visit, the time and date of your visit, the time spent on those pages, and other statistics.

Additionally, we make use of the Google Analytics platform to understand our readers better. This software uses cookies, to obtain high-level “audience measurement” data such as the referral web domain, type of operating system/browser used, date and time of visit, and other information relating to activities on Our Site to understand its usage better, analyze trends, and optimize the Site experience. It is not linked to any personally identifiable information.

You may opt out of Google Analytics tracking on Our Site and others by installing this Google-provided browser plug-in, available for several browsers including Google Chrome, Safari, and Firefox.


When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


Cookies are files with a small amount of data, which may include an anonymous unique identifier. Cookies are sent to your browser from a website and stored on your computer’s hard drive. We use “cookies” to collect information. You can instruct your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, if you do not accept cookies, it may render some portions of our Service unusable.

Google Analytics also uses cookies as part of its tracking code. Users are urged to read Google, Inc.’s privacy policy to understand how their data is handled.

Google has announced the end of support for third-party cookies by the end of 2022. We expect our partners to comply with this policy during the year, so this portion of our privacy policy is subject to change as that occurs.


Our site displays advertising from our partners, including Google Adsense. Users are reminded that these partners use cookies to serve relevant ads, which may already be present on your computer due to visiting another site that uses one of our advertising partners, not necessarily due to visiting our site.

Users are reminded that once they leave our site by clicking on an ad, the policies of the site you visit may change and be less or more strict than ours. Review their privacy policy if you have any concerns.

Google Adsense provides a method for you to opt-out of this type of cookie-based tracking by visiting this page. Other advertising partners might have similar opt-out methods. We will update this privacy policy with any relevant information on opting out of tracking, although most major ad networks participate in a central site for opting out, located at

To further protect our users, we do not permit advertising from businesses in the following sensitive categories due to their content and/or historically poor data privacy practices: “get rich quick” schemes, sexually suggestive advertising, Astrology & Esoteric topics, social casino games, alcohol advertisements, and betting sites. While no ads from these categories should appear on our site, our ad partners may erroneously show ads from these businesses through erroneous or intentional misclassification of the ad or other reasons out of our control.

Our site may contain links to retailers and partners who pay us a small commission if you purchase on their site within a given period of time. We receive no personally identifiable information as a result of this transaction. In addition, we use Google Analytics to track when these links are clicked to count conversions, which does not link the event to any personally identifiable information either, or anything you may have purchased as a result of clicking that link.

Service Providers

We may employ third-party companies and individuals to facilitate our Service, provide the Service on our behalf, perform Service-related services, or assist us in analyzing how our Service is used. These third parties have access to your Personal Information only to perform these tasks on our behalf and are obligated not to disclose or use it for any other purpose.


The security of your Personal Information is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

Our Service may contain links to other sites that we do not operate. If you click on a third-party link, it will direct you to that third party’s site. We strongly advise you to review the Privacy Policy of every site you visit. We have no control over and assume no responsibility for any third-party sites or services’ content, privacy policies, or practices.

Children’s Privacy

Our Service contains content suitable for children under the age of 18 (“Children”).

We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under 18. However, if you are a parent or guardian and aware that your child has provided us with Personal Information, please contact us. If we discover that a child under 18 has provided us with Personal Information, we will delete such information from our servers immediately.

Compliance With Laws

We will disclose your Personal Information only where required to do so by law or subpoena.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

We may update our Privacy Policy from time to time. We will notify you of any changes by posting the new Privacy Policy on this page. Therefore, you are advised to review this Privacy Policy periodically for any changes. Changes to this Privacy Policy are effective when they are posted on this page.
