Privacy Policy

We understands how important privacy is for our readers. We encourage you to take the time to read the entire privacy policy.

What personal data we collect


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

An anonymized string created from your email address 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.


The email address you provide will be stored with a third-party email provider called Aweber. We will use this information to send you email newsletters.

Aweber will store data related to your email subscription, including your email, IP address, user-agent, and information about whether you opened different newsletters. You can read the full Aweber privacy policy here.

At the bottom of each and every email sent to you, there is an unsubscribe link. If you click that link, you will never hear from us again.

We will never share your email address with anyone.
