Much of the data I collect is sent to be processed by my third-party companies. Please review their privacy policy for more details.

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so I can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

You can email me if you are concerned with the data I use and collect on you.

Where I Send Your Data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.


I make every attempt to keep your Personal Information secure, but realize that no transmission over the internet is 100% secure. I make every effort to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, but I cannot guarantee absolute security.
