As is true of most web sites, this site automatically gathers certain information and stores it in a log file. This information includes how you arrived at this web site, the name of your browser, and what pages you visited. I use this information to help improve my web site. I do not know who you are or what your e-mail address is.
If you contact me and provide an e-mail address, I will not sell your e-mail address and I will not put you on some stupid mailing list. Anyone who contacts me agrees that I may use the content of the e-mail on this web site or anywhere else. Thanks to the ineptitude of Yahoo, spambots used the crusty old Yahoo contact form more than humans did, so I had to switch to a free contact form from 123formbuilder.com. I have no idea what they do with e-mail addresses. Use their form at your own risk.
Sometimes this web site uses third-party advertising companies to serve ads on certain pages. These companies may use information (not including your name, address, e-mail address, or telephone number) about your visits to this and other web sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices about not having this information used by these companies, click here.
If you block cookies, you may still use this site, but your ability to use things such as surveys will be limited.
Clear GIFs (Web Beacons/Web Bugs)
This web site might employ a software technology called clear GIFs (a.k.a. Web Beacons/Web Bugs) at any time. Stats services often use them and some third party advertising partners often use them as well. Clear GIFs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of Web users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user's computer hard drive, clear GIFs are embedded invisibly on Web pages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. Clear GIFs cannot tell me who you are or what your e-mail address is, so you don't have anything to worry about.

Google Analytics is a tool that this web site uses to help understand how visitors use this web site. It reports web site trends using cookies and web beacons without identifying individual visitors. You can read more about it on the Safeguarding Your Data page at Google. I use the free version, not the premium version.
Links to Other Web Sites
This web site contains links to other sites that are not owned or controlled by me. Please be aware that I am not responsible for the privacy practices of those web sites.
I have no control over who visits this web site and I do not sell the personal information of anyone including children.
Most of this web site is fairly kid safe, but this site is not directed at children under 13. There could be a few spots that are questionable. I don't think there are topics or language that would be worse than what you would hear on a late night talk show on network TV in the United States. Any quoted words that seem to be on the naughty list have an asterisk in them. I also use words such as crap and darn on some pages. If you think that kind of thing is offensive, you might want to block this web site so your kids can't visit.
Changes in this Privacy Statement
I reserve the right to modify this privacy statement at any time, so please review it frequently.

Special thanks to TRUSTe for their free "TRUSTe Guidance on Model Web Site Disclosures" document. It was a big help. I don't see it on their web site anymore, so they either changed the name or deleted it.
