I understand your privacy is important to you, just as mine is to me.Do to others as you wish them to do to you, comes to mind. Below is a list of the main concerns you may have, if anything is not listed, feel free to contact me directly.
1) Do I collect any personal information about you?Nope, that's the simple version. By Personal I mean, your name, age, height social security number etc. No website can obtain this type of information from you, unless you give it to them. Occasionally readers do email me, I do save a lot of those emails for future reference. I do not share the email addresses or names contained in those emails with anyone, period.
2) Do I gather and collect IP addresses for some weird reason?Nope, that's the simple version. The Web Servers for this website are in the USA and I don't keep logs. I do use google analytics; your IP address is not visible though. Analytics does tell me which part of the world /city your ISP is located in.
3) Do I sell or share information about you?Nope, that's the simple version. The only time I would share the small amount of data that is saved through analytics, is if I was legally obliged to do so. Not planning on going to prison any time soon.
4) Is this website considered safe for children?Yep, that's the simple version. None of the websites I create, contain anything remotely adult in nature, nor do I link to other websites that may be deemed offensive. At the same time it is worth mentioning I can not be held responsible for what is contained on someone else's website.
5) Advertising and Commissions:I do participate in various affiliate programs, including rei.com moosejaw.com and amazon.com where I earn a small commission from time to time.
