At, I recognize that your privacy is important. This Policy covers all aspects of and was last updated on July 6 , 2022.

Information Collected

I offer a number of services that do not require you to register for an account or provide any personal information, such as reading the blog, or searching the site. In order to provide the full range of services, however, I may collect the following types of information:

Account Information

If and/or when you register with, I ask you for personal information (such as your name, email address, and an account password).


When you leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.


When you visit, the server may send one or more cookies – a small file containing a string of characters – to your computer that uniquely identifies your browser. I use cookies to improve the quality of the service by storing user preferences and tracking user trends, such as how people search. Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies, but you can set your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, some features and services may not function properly if your cookies are disabled.

Log Information

When you use services, the server automatically records information that your browser sends whenever you visit a website. These server logs may include information such as your web request, Internet Protocol address, browser type, browser language, the date and time of your request and one or more cookies that may uniquely identify your browser.

User Communication

When you send email or other communication to me, I may retain those communications in order to process your inquiries, respond to your requests, and improve my services.

Links may present links in a format that enables me to keep track of whether these links have been followed. I may use this information to improve the quality of the searches, or present content customized just for you.

Embedded content from other websites

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 tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Other Sites

This privacy policy applies to web sites and services that are operated by me. I do not exercise control over some of the sites displayed as links from within These other sites may place their own cookies or other files on your computer, collect data or solicit personal information from you. Please read and understand their privacy policies as well.

Choices for Personal Information

When you register, I ask you to provide personal information. You can decline to submit personal information, in which case may not be able to provide those services to you.

Information Sharing

I will never share your personal information outside of unless I have a good faith belief that access, use, preservation or disclosure of such information is reasonably necessary to: (a) satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process or enforceable governmental request, (b) detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues, or (c) protect against imminent harm to the rights, property or safety of, its users, or the public as required or permitted by law. If becomes involved in a merger, acquisition, or any form of sale of some or all of its assets, I will provide notice before personal information is transferred and becomes subject to a different privacy policy.

Information Security

I take appropriate security measures to protect against unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure, or destruction of data. I restrict access to personal information to me and other employees, contractors and agents who need to know that information in order to operate, develop or improve our services. These individuals are bound by confidentiality obligations and may be subject to discipline, including termination and criminal prosecution, if they fail to meet these obligations.

Data Integrity processes personal information only for the purposes for which it was collected and in accordance with this Policy. I have reviewed the data collection, storage, and processing practices to ensure that I only collect, store, and process the personal information needed to provide or improve the services. I take reasonable steps to ensure that the personal information is accurate, complete, and current, but I depend on you, the users, to update or correct their personal information whenever necessary.

Accessing and Updating Personal Information

When you use, I make good faith efforts to provide you with access to your personal information and either to correct this data if it is inaccurate or to delete such data at your request if it is not otherwise required to be retained by law or for legitimate business purposes. I ask individual users to identify themselves and the information requested to be accessed, corrected, or removed before processing such requests, and we may decline to process requests that are unreasonably repetitive or systematic, require disproportionate technical effort, jeopardize the privacy of others, or would be extremely impractical (for instance, requests concerning information residing on backup sotrage media), or for which access is not otherwise required. In any case, where I provide information access and correction, I will perform this service free of charge, except if doing so would require a disproportionate effort.

Changes to this policy

I regularly review this policy and whether it is being followed. Please note that this Policy may change from time to time. I will post any Policy changes on this page and, if the changes are significant, I will provide a more prominent notice (including maybe even email notification of Policy changes).


If you have any additional questions or concerns about this Policy, please feel free to contact me through [email protected].
