WPClipart uses advertising from Google.
They run ads that I believe are appropriate for this site's audience. I have yet to see an ad be crude or overly intrusive.
The ad layout onsite is never meant to confuse ads with content. There is only one ad per page (and one in the "related"
framed page that appears below the image display pages.)
That said, Google is a contexual advertiser, and as such they use anonymous cookies on the user's machine to track web visiting habits.
(In order to serve targeted ads.)
However, since Google is part of the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) you have the ability
to OPT OUT of the use of their tracking cookies. Ads are still served, just no cookie is used, and no
tracking information is collected as you visit. To see the NAI opt-out list:
the NAI opt-out page
By opting out, your preference not to be tracked will be honored by these agencies wherever you go, not just here at WPClipart. (See below)
"The NAI has adopted a policy that all NAI member companies set a minimum lifespan of five years for their opt out cookies.

The images are vetted for public domain status more rigourously than any user-submitted site, I tweak/improve clips I don't create myself, especially
conscious of printability. The images will always be OK for kids to view.
I rent a dedicated server that I configure and maintain myself, and wrote custom databasing software just for WPClipart. (Yeah, I'm a bit of a geek.)
I do computer repair as a profession -- but the more money I make from the website, the more time I can devote to it's improvment.
And if you have a question or problem -- you can email me
, and I will usually be helpful :-)
That's what I offer, and my dream is to work on the site full time.
So if you'd like to donate a couple bucks through PayPal, much appreciated!
