The only anonymous data we collect is for statistical purposes to see how far our content is reaching. Any IP address or other identifying data is aggregated and disposed of after 30 days because we simply don’t need it (and it takes up valuable database space when dealing with lots of comments and page-views. Comment data is tied to your email address and/or user name, but we try not to expose anything personal there either unless you display it yourself.
We will not sell your email address, name or any other identifying information to any third parties, ever.
As far as ads are concerned, they are displayed to offset the costs of running a busy server. If you visit often, please disable your ad-blocker. You will find that the ads served on this site are not obnoxious and never auto-play.
As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
