The simple act of visiting a website leaves a trail of information, a “digital footprint,” about visitors like you. Sometimes this footprint is vague and preserves your anonymity and other times it is tied specifically to you and your real life identity.
If all you do is click around and read pages, the data captured about you is vague. If you leave a comment or sign up for a newsletter, the data captured about you is sometimes very specific. Almost all web sites on the web today collect data in this fashion about visitors, and this site is no different.
Data may be used for any purpose that enables you to read, respond to, and discover content topical to this site.
Data may be kept indefinitely.
We occasionally have sponsors and partners that ask us to send you information about their service or product in exchange for money. Don’t worry, we hate e-mail overload as much as you do so we are very, very particular about those we work with.
Data is never given to advertisers.
Data may be given to law enforcement at our discretion.
Data may be collected by analytic services.
