Privacy Policy

Last Updated: February 13, 2021

We value your privacy.

We use SSL (encryption) to protect your data in transit to and from this site as well as robust security software to protect the integrity of this site, and in turn your data.

The only information we store is information that you provide freely:

Comments

To allow for discussion, you have the opportunity to post comments on this website. Please do. We look forward to chatting with you.

The information collected when you comment includes your name, email address, ip address, and your comments. If you ever wish to have your comments removed, send us a quick note through our contact form and we’ll remove them.

We use a third party program, CleanTalk, to check over your comments. If you’re a spammer, they’ll toss you out. CleanTalk will only store your information for a few days. That way if we find out they’ve accidentally thrown out someone who isn’t a spammer, we can tell them to let you back in.

Website Activity Tracking

Our hosting company provides basic data on those who access this site. The data stored in this manner is not traceable back to any individual and is deliberately generalized. It provides us with information related to the country of origin of site visitors, what browser they are using, and how long they stayed on the site.

In addition, Google and other search engines track website visitors. This is something that happens whenever you use the internet. If you do not want to be tracked, please consider using a private browser window.  The information that these search engines store is not traceable to one individual and so is very generic in nature. We do not store this information, however we do occasionally look at it so that we can tell what people are searching for when they come to this site. This helps us provide more relevant content.

We also using Google Analytics to learn why people are visiting the site. How did you come to be here? Why are you here? Scary, but Google knows these things. It helps us to know, too.

Don’t want me to know? Consider using that private browser!
