What personal data we collect and why we collect it
Comments on this site have been turned off using a WordPress plugin. All past comments have been permanently discarded. No record that we are aware of has been maintained of who previously posted comments.
A contact form, provided by a WordPress plugin, may be provided as a courtesy to enable a site visitor to contact the site’s author. This contact form requires a name, email address, topic, and message. The use of this contact form is entirely a voluntary act of the visitor. Completing the contact form sends this information via an email to the site’s author. The author may choose to ignore, delete, retain, and/or respond to each message. The author may choose to forward the content of your message to others or post to social media. The contact information (name, email, topic, and message) is likely retained by the WordPress plugin in a database. If this is happening, this information will likely be retained indefinably with this website’s other operating databases. Other than for the purpose of sending the visitor’s message to the site’s author, this information is not otherwise used or provided to anyone by this this website or the author. As the collection of this information is automatically handled by a WordPress plugin, this website or author does not control how this information may otherwise be used, collected, retained, or distributed. If needed, this information will be provided to law enforcement agencies.
Email notification of new postings
This site may make available the option for a site visitor to signup their email address to enable them to be notified by email of new site postings. Completion of this signup requires a second step to verify the email address by receiving and acknowledging a verification email. These two steps are entirely voluntary. Further, each notification email includes a link to unsubscribe from further notifications.
A WordPress function is used to automatically collect these email addresses and send out notifications. The email address is retained within a WordPress operating database associated with this website. This information is retained indefinitely. Even if a person unsubscribes, it is probable that the email address is retained. This database of email addresses is only used by this site to automatically send out notifications. This website or the author does not otherwise make use of this database or distribute the database to others.
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.
Who we share your data with

This information is not used for marketing. Should the need arise due to illegal or abusive actions directed at the website or author, such information may be made available to law enforcement agencies or private individuals or companies to address the illegal or abusive actions.
