Privacy Policy

This site gathers information in three ways and uses it as follows:

  1. We do not gather data on individuals but do on aggregate visit data such as country of origin, number of visits and pages, referrers, and destinations after visits.  We do not disclose this data.  This data is gathered by WordPress/Automattic and their privacy policy (and some description of what they gather) is here.
  2. We collect email addresses and names (real or fictitious in both cases) for those who comment on our site.  We do not disclose this data either.  If you want your comments and data scrubbed from the site, let us know and we will do our best to comply with your request.
  3. For those of you who use the contact form, you give us your name and email address.  Unless otherwise disclosed on the contact form, we do not disclose that information or the content of the form.

Our sites are not about gathering private information for subsequent use.  We do not do email lists or ecommerce (we let others handle that, see below.)  Some of our posts and pages feature YouTube videos and Google is always nosy, so be aware of that.

WordPress/Automattic handle the storage of our data and its security from attack.

Special Notes on Amazon.Com and LuLu Links

Most of our amazon.com and all of the LuLu links will result in revenue for this site if the book is bought.

If the book linked to is authored or edited by the webmaster, the link is an endorsement.

I am not a professional book reviewer.  Most of the books I link to are those I have purchased and read, and that is the case unless otherwise noted. My inclusion of the amazon.com link with commission is opportunistic, i.e., if people are interested in the book and then purchase it, there’s no good reason why amazon.com should keep the commission they would pay me.  Linking to amazon.com is also a lazy way of furnishing basic information about the book one would find in a bibliography or a footnote, i.e., date, ISBN, etc.  I have been known to pan books over the years.

Many of the books were bought at a deep discount.  You should try to obtain the same.

Copyright Policy

As noted on every page, all content is copyrighted.  The material I offer falls into two categories.  The first is for sale, and I ask that this not be reposted.  But most of what I have to offer is free, and my only request is that anything you might use needs attribution with a link back to the site.
