Privacy Policy

Effective Date: 4 October 2010

Thank you for visiting Your privacy is important to me, and I am committed to protecting your personal information. This Privacy Policy explains how I collect, use, and safeguard your data while you use my website.

I collect information through Google Analytics to better understand how visitors interact with my website. This information includes:

  • Your IP address
  • Browser type
  • Operating system
  • Pages visited
  • Date and time of visit
  • Referring website
  • Demographics (age, gender, interests) if available


When visitors leave comments on the site I collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) 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.

How I Use Your Information

The data collected is used to analyze website traffic, improve the website content, and optimize your browsing experience. I do not use this data to identify individual users, and it is not shared with third parties for commercial purposes.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.
