Privacy Policy

Your privacy is very important to me, there a few fundamental principles that I follow on this website:

  • I don't ask you for personal information unless I truly need it. (I can't stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
  • I don't share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop my products, or protect my rights.
  • I don't store personal information on my servers unless required for the on-going operation of my site.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, this website collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. This website's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how this website's visitors use its website. From time to time, this website may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

This website also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on my blogs. This website only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

In each case, this website collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with this website.
