Privacy Policy

This site is privately owned and operated and has no corporate or commercial interests.

If you choose to post a comment on this site, any information you provide — most importantly your email address — remains private and is not shared with any third-party. All information you provide when posting a comment is used only for facilitating your interaction with the site or for displaying as part of your public comment on the site. Your email address can — at your choosing — be used to notify you of new comments posted to the site. Your email address is not added to any list or mailer apart from the list that notifies you of new comments. You will not receive email from the site owner/author (unless you initiate email contact first). Your email address is not displayed as part of your public comment.

Additionally if you choose to post a comment on this 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.

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

This site may use third-party agents to gather and report on metrics related to visitors to the site. You should consult the respective privacy policies of these third-party agents for more detailed information on their practices as well as for instructions about how to opt-out of certain practices.

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.
