What personal information do I collect from the people who visit my blog?
The information collected depends on how you choose to interact. For instance, I ask those who comment to provide a username and email address. For those who wish to receive my newsletter, I collect their emails. I only collect the information necessary or appropriate for that interaction. I do not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. Visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Do I use ‘cookies’?
I do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your Personally Identifiable Information unless I provide you with advance notice. This does not include website hosting partners and other parties who assist in operating the website, conducting business, or serving our users, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We may also release information when its release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce site policies, or protect ours or others’ rights, property or safety.
However, non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.
Occasionally I may include or offer third-party products or services on this website. These third-party sites have separate and independent privacy policies.
