This Privacy Policy explains my practices with respect to the collection, use, and disclosure of personal and non-personal information provided by visitors to my Web site. By using this site, you signify your assent to these privacy practices and the terms and conditions of my Web site. If you do not agree, please do not use this site.



Personal Information

The only personal information is the email address I collect from visitors to my Web site when they voluntarily provide it to me by completing my comment form.

Non-Personal Information

When visitors access my Web site, certain non-personal information may be collected from them including, but not limited to, their browser type ( e.g., Netscape or Internet Explorer), operating system (e.g., Windows or Macintosh), IP address, and the domain name from which they accessed the site (e.g., lycos.com) In addition, I may collect information about visitors' browsing behavior, such as the date and time they visit the Web site, the areas or pages of my Web site that they visit, the amount of time spent viewing the site, the number of times the visitor returns to the site, and click-stream data. I do not track any information about visitors once they leave my site. I may use cookies (small text files that are stored on visitors computers when they access my Web site) to collect this information. I may also allow unaffiliated third parties, such as advertisers, to serve cookies to visitors of my Web site. Visitors are always free to decline cookies, but in doing so they may not be able to use certain features on my Web site. The "help" segment of the toolbar on most browsers explains how to configure a browser to not accept new cookies, how to have the browser inform a user when they receive a new cookie, and how to erase cookies from their hard drives.


I do not under any circumstances use, sell, or lease your email address except to personally contact you with a question if the need arises.

As for non-personal information, I only use it:

  1. to allow you to make one-click purchases through Amazon or other advertisers that you click on.

  2. to help diagnose problems with my server.

  3. to administer my Web site.

  4. to conduct internal reviews of my site ( e.g., to determine the number of visitors to the site).

  5. to help me better understand visitors' use of my site, and

  6. to protect the security or integrity of my site. Non-personal information will be used for purposes of conducting internal reviews of the site, monitoring the site, and providing a greater online experience for my visitors.


I may transfer or otherwise disclose information collected from visitors to my Web site to independent contractors or consultants if the disclosure will enable that party to perform a technical support function for me, or if required to do so by law. I will not disclose information I collect from my visitors to any marketing or business enterprise. I will not share, rent, sell, or transfer any personal or non-personal information provided by my visitors to third parties other than for the uses noted above.


By visiting this Web site, you are agreeing to the practices described in this Privacy Policy; you also accept, without limitation or qualification, all terms and conditions concerning the use of this site. I may at any time revise these terms and conditions. You are bound by any such revisions and should therefore periodically visit this page to review the then-current terms and conditions to which you are bound.

Third-party Sites/Advertising

To the extent that any of the third-party sites linked or accessible through my Web site (such as my advertisers) have different privacy practices from those stated in this Privacy Policy, those third-party privacy practices govern the collection and use of information you provide when visiting those sites. I am not responsible for the policies, content, and practices of other companies.

We use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit our website. These companies may use information (not including your name, address, email address, or telephone number) about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you.

Google Adsense

The DoubleClick DART cookie is used by Google in the ads served on this website on articles displaying AdSense for content ads. When you either view or click on an ad, a cookie may be dropped on your browser. The data gathered from these cookies will be used to help ad publishers better serve and manage ads on their site(s) and across the web.

You may opt out of the use of the DART cookie by visiting the Google ad and content network privacy policy.


There may be times when I need to change the terms of this Privacy Policy. To ensure that you are aware of my current privacy practices, please bookmark this page and check back often.
