The simple act of visiting a website leaves a trail of information – a “digital footprint,” about visitors like you. Sometimes this footprint is vague and preserves your anonymity and other times it is tied specifically to you and your real life identity.
If all you do is click around and read pages, the data captured about you is vague. If you leave a comment or sign up for a newsletter, the data captured about you is sometimes very specific. Almost all web sites on the web today collect data in this fashion about visitors, and this site is no different.
Data is used for the express purpose of enabling you to read, respond to, and discover published content topical to this site, and nothing else. Feel safe – You won’t be getting any creepy business from me!
Data will likely be kept indefinitely. This means, I don’t go back and delete your comments or purge email addresses at this point. Again, most of the time you wouldn’t want this anyways as I don’t abuse the information provided as it is.
Data is never bartered or sold for commercial gain. That’s a promise!
Data may be utilized for catering specific ads to you, such as localizing a Google Ad or delivering content that you find relative. I do not look at this information personally, but may use systems that view that data. Most sites do this.
I never sell or barter with your information in a specific sense for mailers, or other annoying such things.
Data may be given to law enforcement at discretion of site owner or when legal process is followed and they simply make me. I mean, hey, what can ya do?
Data may be collected by analytic services.
