Privacy Information

This site uses Google Analytics for statistical purposes and, through the hosting provider, cPanel for managing the back end. The blog uses WordPress, plus Akismet for spam protection. For information about the data gathered and cookies set by each of these, please refer to their respective privacy policies. Visitors who wish to comment on the blog will be required to enter a display name, which will be published, and a valid e-mail address, which will be stored along with the IP address, neither being published.

This site may at times include other scripts, usually as part of calls to action. These scripts may come with their own privacy policies, may set their own cookies, usually in order to prevent the message from being displayed repeatedly, and may gather information submitted by the user.

This site does not include advertisements, social networking integration, share buttons or, to the best of my knowledge, any other features that gather or set personally identifiable information except those listed above. This site does not allow visitors to create accounts or profiles. This site does not generate any revenue.

If you have any questions or requests related to privacy, please use the contact link below, including the word "privacy" in the subject line.

PS: I can't include such a page without stating that, while handing more control back to the users when it comes to personal information gathered without it being voluntarily and specifically submitted and made public is much needed and the current provisions don't go nearly far enough, the requirements for sites to allow users to remove anything they have voluntarily published in the past, and perhaps even more so the "right to forget" ruling requiring search engines to remove results involving past information about the people who request it, are absolutely terrible concepts, amounting to a rewriting of history at an individual level. One of the basic rules of the Internet was that it never forgets, and that's exactly how it should be.
