PRIVACY POLICY

The simple act of visiting a website leaves a trail of information, a “digital footprint,” about visitors like you. Sometimes this footprint is vague and preserves your anonymity and other times it is tied specifically to you and your real life identity.

If all you do is click around and read pages, the data captured about you is vague. If you leave a comment or sign up for a newsletter, the data captured about you is sometimes very specific. Almost all web sites on the web today collect data in this fashion about visitors, and this site is no different.

It is our belief that you deserve to know how we handle your information. Consequently, the Privacy Policy below is a disclosure concerning our intent with your data. It is not a legally binding contract. It is a statement of intent made in good faith.

If you are unsure what something means, please ask. Contact information is available at the bottom of the Privacy Policy.

Law Enforcement

Analytic

Data may be collected by analytic services. This website uses Google Analytics to collect visitor data and analyze traffic on the site. This information helps me understand visitor interests and improve the content on the site. These statistics do not include any personally identifiable information. I do not sell, give, or trade the statistics stored on Google Analytics to any 3rd parties for data-mining or marketing purposes.
