Terms and Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy

The privacy of my visitors is extremely important. This Privacy Policy outlines the types of personal information that is received and collected and how it is used.

First and foremost, I will never share your email address or any other personal information to anyone unless you explicitly ask me to. Even then I will probably be too busy to do so.

Log Files

I host this site myself on a VPN, my web host logs visitor information, mostly to block spammers. I never use this log info for anything other than debugging and blocking attacks. I also use CloudFlare to protect this site, and they also log your visit information. Both sets of logs include:

  • Internet Protocol addresses (IP)
  • Types of browser
  • Internet Service Provider (ISP)
  • Date and time stamp

All of this information is not linked to anything that is personally identifiable.

Cookies and Web Beacons

The only cookies we use are for the Disqus comments and anlaytics tracing. Disabling cookies will prevent you from leaving comments, but that is all. Cookies are used for no other reason.

If you wish to disable cookies, you may do so through your web browser options. Instructions for doing so can be found on the specific web browsers’ websites.


I use a couple of analytics apps—CloudFlare and Google Analytics—feel free to disable cookies.


I don’t include ads or advertising tracking cookies.
