The following policy is designed to protect your privacy when subscribing, commenting, and/or submitting a guest blog at

I collect information from you when you subscribe to this blog.  You will be asked to enter your email address.  This information may be used in one of the following ways:

  • To personalize your experience; your information helps me to better respond to your individual needs;
  • To improve my web site; I continually strive to improve my web site offerings based on the information and feedback I receive from you;

When I send emails to my subscribers, I’ll sometimes track who opened the emails.  I do this to measure the performance of my email campaigns.

I also collect your IP.  IPs are tracked to identify spam which will be blacklisted.

Protecting your information

I implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information when you enter, submit, or access your personal information.  Your information is stored on secure servers with 3rd party vendors who I have selected based on their due diligence with securing this date.


Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computer’s hard drive through your Web browser (if you allow) that enables the site’s or service provider’s systems to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information.

My Content Management System uses cookies to verify who you are.  When visitors comment on my blog, cookies are stored on their computer. This is purely a convenience, so that the visitor won’t need to re-type all their information again when they want to leave another comment.

Disclosing information to outside parties

I do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information. This does not include trusted third parties who assist me in operating my website, conducting business, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. I may also release your information when I believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce my site policies, or protect mine or others’ rights, property, or safety.

Occasionally, at my discretion, I may include or offer third party products or services on this web site. These third party sites have separate and independent privacy policies. I therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites. Nonetheless, I seek to protect the integrity of my site and welcome any feedback about these sites.

Online privacy policy with the exception of guest blogging
