Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy

I take online privacy very seriously. Here is the policy which discloses any information gathering and dissemination practices for this website:

Short Version
Statistics are collected about your visit, like which of my pages you viewed.

Some 3rd parties like Facebook and Twitter may know you visited this website if you use their services. I can’t control them but I don’t believe this knowledge poses any threat to you.

I do not collect information from you directly as I do not process any payments nor have any logins on this site. If you send me an email or sign-up for a newsletter, I will collect your email and in that event, I never share it with others.

Social Sharing Icons

I do, however, use AddThis, which supplies websites with those neat little social share buttons you see. They do provide data to me as to how many visits, from which countries, the pages viewed and what was shared.

Due to policy regulations in effect as of May 25, 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) I am updating my policy here to make you aware. Since I have been enlightened by this process I am listing this Privacy Policy link from AddThis about what they do with data. I found it very interesting and I recommend reading it if you are interested as well.

AddThis Opt Out Page
I am also providing the link here to the AddThis opt-out page on their site. If you prefer that AddThis does not collect non-personally identifiable information about your website visits for the purpose of delivering targeted advertising, you may opt out by clicking on the “opt-out” button on their site.

Site Stats
I also use Statcounter, an online service which helps understand visitors; for example, how they find this site, how long they spend here, which pages most viewed, etc. Statcounter uses cookies and other technologies to collect data on visitors and their activity. This data includes:

- Time and date of visit
- IP address (a numerical label assigned to a device by an Internet Service Provider to enable the device to access the internet)
- Browser & Operating System (helps me make sure that the site functions correctly in the browsers/operating systems)
- Device Information e.g. device type & screen size (helps me make sure that this site functions correctly in the devices used)
- Referring Data e.g. a search engine link (helps me understand how visitors find this site)

Furthermore, when you visit here a Statcounter cookie (called "is_unique") may be placed in your browser. This cookie is used only to determine whether you are a first-time or returning visitor and to estimate unique visits to the site.

Statcounter Opt Out Page
You can learn more about cookies from StatCounter and set your browser to refuse same by clicking here.
For further details, please see the Statcounter privacy policy.

These are just the key points. If you need detail, keep reading.

Log Files

Like most standard websites, this website uses log files. These include: Internet Protocol addresses (IP addresses), browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and the number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the site, track user movement in the aggregate, and to gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses, etc., are not linked to personally identifiable information.

Web Cookies

Web cookies (also known as HTTP cookies, or just cookies) are parcels of text sent by a server to a Web browser, and then sent back unchanged by the browser each time it accesses that server. In other words, a cookie is a piece of data stored on a user’s computer that is tied to information about the user.

Web beacons are objects that are embedded in a webpage or email that are invisible to the user, but allow checking that a user has viewed the page or email. Other names are web bug, tracking bug, tag or page tag.

This website does use cookies. Additionally, advertisers may use cookies and web beacons as well. This site has no access to, or control of advertisers' web cookies or web beacons.

If you wish to disable cookies, you may do so through your individual browser options. Please check your browser's help section for instructions on how to do this.


This website contains links to other websites. Please be aware that I am not responsible for the privacy practices of other websites. I encourage you to read the privacy policy of each website you visit if you have questions, as this particular privacy policy applies solely to this particular website.


I may use outside advertising networks and companies to display ads on this site. These ads may contain cookies and/or web beacons in order to collect data in the ad serving process. These such cookies and/or web beacons are collected by the companies and/or advertising networks themselves. I do not have any access to this information.
