What personal data we collect and why we collect it

We respect your privacy.  Your information is private and will only be used to enhance your experience on this site.  Our site collects general geographic information such as city/state.


When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Contact forms

Your information submitted through contact forms is private.  


Our site uses cookies to help us understand who is visiting our site.   Cookies may be used to let you know about future events and digital content using Facebook Ads or Google Adsense.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Who we share your data with

We prioritize the protection of your personal information and value your privacy. We want to be transparent about how we handle your data. While using our website, certain instances may require us to share your data with trusted third parties, but rest assured, we do not engage in the sale of user data. Here’s a breakdown of situations in which your data might be shared:

  1. Service Providers: We work with trusted service providers, such as website hosting partners and analytics tools, to ensure the smooth functioning of our website and gain insights into its usage. These partners have access to limited personal data solely for the purpose of performing services on our behalf and are bound by contractual obligations to maintain the confidentiality and security of your information.

  2. Plugins and Integrations: Our website utilizes plugins and integrations to enhance its features and capabilities. While these tools may process certain data, they do so within the parameters defined by us and are also subject to privacy policies and security measures.

  3. Legal Requirements: We may disclose your personal information if required to do so by law or in response to valid legal requests, such as court orders or government regulations.

  4. Protecting Rights and Safety: We may share your data if we believe it is necessary to protect the safety of our users, or the public, as well as to prevent fraud or security breaches.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
