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 (we don’t like spam either).
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).
- 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 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 analytics programs for security, detecting unauthorized access attempts, determining popular pages, etc. We have configured our analytics software to not set tracking cookies, so the “do not track” setting in your browser (on or off) does not change this site’s behavior, as we don’t set or use tracking cookies.
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, purchasing products, etc). The amount and type of information gathered depends on the nature of the interaction. 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 never enter personal information on this (or any other) site.
Third Party Utilities
Other privacy policies which may apply to you:
- Mailchimp - because we use them for the email newsletter
- YouTube - because we embed YouTube Videos
- Square - because we sell books using their store
- Google - because we use Google’s engine for site search
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 policies, or protect our rights.
