  1. What personally identifiable information is collected from you through the website, how it is used, and with whom it may be shared.

Information Collection, Use & Sharing

This website only collects information that you supply voluntarily via comments to blog posts, messages sent from the Contact page, or other direct contact from you, such as name, email address, and free-text comments. This website does not specifically request credit card numbers, social security number, date of birth, address, or any other sensitive forms of personally identifiable information.

Information you submit may pass through automated third-party data analysis systems for the purpose of identifying “spam” and prevent abuse of this website. I will not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer your information to any outside party, except as legally required to comply with requests from law enforcement.

Information you supply will be used only to enhance the experience on the website for you and other visitors and will not be used to contact you except as necessary to respond to comments posted to blog entries or messages sent to me via email.

Your Access to and Control Over Information

This website does not offer functionality for visitors to create an individual account or personal profile, and thus, you will not have the ability to directly view and manage the data you have submitted. However, if you are concerned about any information you may have supplied to me through this website, you may do the following at any time by sending me an email from the Contact page:

  • See what data I have about you, if any.
  • Change or correct any data I have about you.
  • Have me delete any data I have about you.
  • Express any concern you have about my use of your data.

Demographics and Behavior Tracking

This website implements Google Analytics to track your behavior as you navigate throughout the site. This tracking is completely anonymous and cannot be used to identify you. The data collected from this tracking is aggregated and used solely to gauge how the website is used so that it may be improved to enhance your experience.


This website uses “cookies,” which is a piece of data stored on a website visitor’s hard drive. Only the website which placed the cookie can read it. Cookies are used by this website to customize your individual experience on the website and identify repeat visitors to the website. No personally identifiable data will be stored in a cookie.

Do Not Track (DNT)

Links to External Websites

This website may contain links to other websites, but such links shall not imply endorsement of safety. While I will exercise personal due diligence to prevent linking to dangerous or otherwise questionable websites, I am not responsible nor can I be held liable for the content or privacy practices of such other websites.


Even though this website does not specifically request any sensitive forms of personally identifiable information, I take reasonable precautions to protect information collected, both online and offline. This website implements TLS 1.2 encryption (often incorrectly referred to as SSL) using a certificate issued by a trusted certification authority to prevent interception of your information by third parties. The server on which this website is hosted is located in a secure facility that restricts access through multiple layers of electronic and physical protection.


This Privacy Policy may change from time to time, and all updates will be posted on this page. This policy was last updated on Thursday, 21 July, 2016.

If you feel that I am not abiding by this privacy policy, you should contact me immediately by sending an email on my Contact page.
