What personal data we collect and why we collect it


When visitors leave comments on the site we 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.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Contact forms

We do not rely on contact forms. And, if you make a payment through PayPal, that transaction is routed only from us to PayPal for completion and back to us for additional website usage. We cannot determine any of your financial information through this practice.


If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

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.


Who we share your data with

As indicated above, other than to maintain your persistent presence on the website, we have security software that tracks anyone who comes to the website as well as our webhost. We will never knowingly share your information.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

Additional information

How we protect your data

We use the https and rely on our webhosting server to protect your information. If there is a breech of information, it would not be due to any negligence on our part.

We will contact you as soon as we are made aware of the issue. We will also let you know what steps we have taken in response to a breech if it occurs.

What third parties we receive data from

We do not purchase 3rd Party information, nor do we sell it. If we embed a link from an outside service, we are allowing the link based on their security procedures along with ours.

What automated decision making and/or profiling we do with user data

We have no automatic decision making beyond the Google Translation service we have included in our website. Any information regarding where you are contacting us is only kept on our server and is not given out to any 3rd Parties.

Industry regulatory disclosure requirements

Based on the private nature of our business, we do suggest that you refrain from giving away too much information about yourself through our website. We are not physicians, psychiatrists, psychologists or certified counselors. Though we have taken every precaution to maintain your anonymity if you choose, we cannot be responsible for outside parties who have circumvented our policies, procedures and privacy safeguards. We will not disclose your information unless we have specific approval from you.
