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.
Data collected for ebooks, white papers, or any other digital product may be used to promote monthly newsletters, specials, or promotions.
Data is used for the express purpose of enabling you to read, respond to, and discover published content topical to this site, and nothing else.
Data may be kept indefinitely unless website owner is contacted and data is requested to be deleted entirely.
Data is never bartered or sold for commercial gain.
Data may be given to advertisers.
Data is given to law enforcement only when legal process is followed.
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.
