If you leave a comment on my site you may opt-in to save your name, email address and website in cookies through Disqus. 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 1 year.
If you have an account and you log in to this site, this website 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.

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.
I have no control over the personal information this embedded content may obtain about you while using my website.
I do not sell, trade, or share your personal information to any outside parties.
This does not include the automated built-in sharing of some of your information with the trusted third party services I use to manage and operate this website. These services take extensive measures to ensure that your information is well protected.
In some situations I am forced to release your information to relevant outside parties: when I’m complied to by law, to enforce certain site policies, to protect my rights and property, or to ensure the physical safety of myself and my family.
All information sent by you through the contact form will be kept for a period of 6 months after completion of the conversation.
Any 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.
I will indefinitely store all your relevant personal information through MailChimp if you subscribe to my newsletter, up until the moment you decide to unsubscribe. Once unsubscribed, all your personal information gained through MailChimp will be deleted and will not be retained in any format.
For users that register on our website (if any), this website also stores 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). The website administrator can also see and edit that information. Upon request, the administrator will delete all your personal information.
