Information we Collect

I am the sole owner of the information collected on this site. I don’t ask you for personal information unless I truly need it. I don’t share your personal information with anyone except in accordance with law. I only have access to personally-identifying information if you voluntarily give it to me via the contact form or by email. For example, if you use the contact form, you are asked to provide a name and email address. This is always on an opt-in basis: you can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information.

I use the information collected when you use the contact forms, surf the website, or use certain other site features in the following ways:

    • To keep the website secure.
    • To respond to your requests.
    • To improve user experience.
    • To improve the website.

We don’t and won’t sell or rent your information to anyone, and we won’t share any of your information with any third party outside of our organization. (That includes our web hosting company and any web developer whose help we might need with a problem on the website. The site as a whole is protected by reCAPTCHA from Google and so the Google Privacy Policy and Terms of Service apply.  We will disclose personally-identifying information if we’re ever required to do so by law; that hasn’t ever happened to date.

We also collect aggregate data about visitors (browser type, language preference, referring site, date and time of visit and the like), that track this information for us, and retain it in log form. This information isn’t linked to anything personally identifiable, but we don’t sell or rent any of it to anyone either.

Feel free to contact me if you want to to exercise any of these rights and don’t see a way to do so by simply clicking a link.
