Privacy & Cookies

I value my visitors’ privacy.

This privacy policy is effective November 2017; it summarizes what information I might collect from a website visitor ("you"), and what I will and will not do with it. Please note that this privacy policy does not govern the collection and use of information by companies that I do not control, nor by individuals not employed or managed by me.

If you visit a Web site that I mention or link to, be sure to review its privacy policy before providing the site with information.

What I do with your personally identifiable information

It is always up to you whether to disclose personally identifiable information to me, although if you elect not to do so, I reserve the right not to register you as a user or provide you with any products or services. "Personally identifiable information" means information that can be used to identify you as an individual, such as, for example:

  • your name, company, email address, phone number, and address
  • your website user ID and password (if applicable)
  • any account-preference information you provide me
  • your computer’s domain name and IP address, indicating where your computer is located on the Internet
  • session data for your login session, so that our server can ‘talk’ to yours while you are logged in

If you do provide personally identifiable information to me, either directly or through a reseller or other business partner, I will:

  • not sell or rent it to a third party without your permission - although unless you opt out (see below), I may use your contact information to provide you with information I believe you need to know or may find useful, such as (for example) news about my work and modifications to the Terms of Service;
  • take commercially reasonable precautions to protect the information from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction;
  • not use or disclose the information except:
    • as necessary to provide services or products you have ordered, such as (for example) by providing it to a carrier to deliver products you have ordered;
    • in other ways described in this privacy policy or to which you have otherwise consented;
    • in the aggregate with other information in such a way so that your identity cannot reasonably be determined (for example, statistical compilations);
    • as required by law, for example, in response to a subpoena or search warrant;
    • to outside auditors who have agreed to keep the information confidential;
    • as necessary to enforce the Terms of Service;
    • as necessary to protect the rights, safety, or property of my website, its users, or others; this may include (for example) exchanging information with other organizations for fraud protection and/or risk reduction.

Other information I collect

I may collect other information that cannot be readily used to identify you, such as (for example) the domain name and IP address of your computer. I may use this information, individually or in the aggregate, for technical administration of the Web site(s); research and development; customer- and account administration; and to help focus my marketing efforts more precisely.

Cookies does not use "cookies" to store personal data on your computer. However, I do use Google Analytics to anonymously monitor site usage in order to improve our visitor experience. Google Analytics is a service offered by Google that generates detailed statistics about the visitors to a website. Their cookies are used to store details how long a visitor spends on a website and where they came from.

If you would prefer not to accept cookies from Google, the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on is available for Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari and Opera.

External data storage sites.

I may store your data on servers provided by third party hosting vendors with whom I have contracted.

Your privacy responsibilities

To help protect your privacy, be sure:

  • not to share your user ID or password with anyone else;
  • to log off the website when you are finished;
  • to take customary precautions to guard against “malware” (viruses, Trojan horses, bots, etc.), for example by installing and updating suitable anti-virus software.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

I reserve the right to change this privacy policy as I deem necessary or appropriate because of legal compliance requirements or changes in my business practices. If you have provided me with an email address, I will endeavor to notify you, by email to that address, of any material change to how I will use personally identifiable information.
