It is our policy to respect your privacy regarding any personal information we may collect while operating our websites.
Use of Information
We do not rent, sell, or trade personal information for marketing purposes.
Information we may Collect
- Subscribing to our newsletter requires an email address used to send the newsletter (each newsletter contains information on how to unsubscribe).
- Commenting on blog entries requires information which will be used to maintain comments.
- Any other volunteered information.
- Standard Web Log Files and Web Analytics (see below).
Log Files and Analytics
Like most websites, we collect non-personally-identifying information of the type web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each request. We also collect potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses as part of standard web logs and other analytics programs.
We collect statistics about the behavior of visitors. We may display aggregated information publicly or provide it to others, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of the website.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors choose to interact in ways that require us to gather personally-identifying information (commenting on articles, subscribing to the newsletter, etc). The amount and type of information gathered depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, commenting requires an email address and name, and subscribing to the newsletter requires an email address. Visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
This website is not directed to children under 13, and minors should not enter personal information.
Third Party Utilities
This site may use a third-party spam filtering service (akismet or similar) to assist in the prevention of comment or other types of spam. See our comment policy regarding submitted comments, and how we use them.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
We do not sell or trade your identifiable information for marketing purposes. We may release information to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect our rights.
