What personal data we collect and why we collect it


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.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Contact forms

We use a Contact Form which requires your name, email address, Comments, and a Captcha to prove you are a human being and not an automated bot account.

This information goes through our website spam filters, and may be segregated before being forwarded to the publisher/owner of the site. All contact information that is flagged as potential spam is evaluated weekly by the owner/publisher. If it is determined to be spam, it is permanently flagged as such before being discarded.

We keep your information for a period of three months for customer support purposes, or so that the owner/publisher may reply to you. After that, the information is discarded.

Your personal information is not shared with any marketers, other social media companies, or anyone else.


If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

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 tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


This site uses a Page and Post “counting” plug-in that anonymously keeps track of the total number of unique views each individual Page and Post accrues. No IP or other information is connected with theses Page/Post views, and none of the visiting IP information is stored.

Who we share your data with

If you post Comments or fill in this site’s Contact forms, your name, IP address, email address, and email URL and IP address become part of your record of contact.

We share this data with WordPress’ anti-spam monitor Askimet to detect spam. If it is determined to be safe and legitimate information, this site sends an email to the owner/publisher, notifying her of new Comments awaiting moderation/approval/reply.

If you fill out the Contact information via this website, it collects your name, email, and IP address. All of this information, along with the Message, is forwarded to the owner/publisher via the website’s private email, through GoDaddy’s private email servers.

Any Comments or Contact information deemed to be spam is deleted from this site immediately.

Any legitimate Contact Information is saved for 3 months for customer service purposes, then safely discarded.

Otherwise, we do not share your data with anyone.

Regarding Book Purchases

Please note that we do sell directly from this website.

If you click on any of the links to purchase books, you will be taken to Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Walmart, etc where you will be able to complete the purchase via their secure websites. None of that information is ever shared with us, and we do not collect any financially sensitive information, such as credit card information, or any location-specific information, such as your physical address or phone number, for any reason.

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

We collect information about visitors who comment on Sites that use our Akismet anti-spam service. The information we collect depends on how the User sets up Akismet for the Site, but typically includes the commenter’s IP address, user agent, referrer, and Site URL (along with other information directly provided by the commenter such as their name, username, email address, and the comment itself).

Your contact information

We collect information about visitors who comment on the Contact form, which includes the commenter’s IP address, user agent, and Site URL (along with other information directly provided by the commenter such as their name, username, email address, and the comment itself). This information is forwarded via GoDaddy’s private email servers from this site to the owner/publisher. It is retained only until the owner/publisher responds to the Contact, via email. Afterward, all Contact information is securely discarded.

We never share your contact information with anyone.
