Includes Contact Form


This privacy statement covers the site and all subdomains of Privacy is a very important issue. Therefore, I have created this privacy policy to let you know what information I collect and how that information is used. If you have questions or concerns regarding this statement, please contact us using the form at the bottom of this page.

Web Site

This is a personal web site. Its primary purpose is not commercial. However, in an attempt to cover the costs of running the web site, there are some advertising on the web site via the Google Adsense program.

Information Collection and Use

With the exception of the blog, forum, and contact pages, this web site does not collect personal information from visitors.

The blog allows visitors who are reading a blog post made within the previous 90 days to leave comments. In order to leave a comment, you must create a login and you may need to provide information such as your name and e-mail address in addition to the comment you want to make. However, I believe only your username and comment are the only pieces of information that is actually published as publicly visible.

The forum asks for your name, e-mail address, and any comments you may have. Whatever you enter will be visible to any visitor who visits the forum after you make your forum post.

The contact page asks for your name, e-mail address, and any comments you have. Anything you submit on the contact page is converted to an e-mail that is sent to me. It will not be posted where anyone can see it. Information provided on the contact page will not be given, sold, rented, or leased to any third party unless we are required to do so by law or court order.

The hosting provider of my web site records some data for all requests sent to my web site. This data includes your IP address, the date and time of your visit, which web page on this web site that you visited, which web page you previously visited (which may or may not be a web page on this web site), the name and version number of the web browser you are using, and whether your request was handled successfully. No personally identifiable information is recorded by our hosting provider.

I reserve the right to disclose your personally identifiable information collected on the guestbook, forum, and feedback pages as required by law and when I believe that disclosure is necessary to protect my rights and/or comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on my website.

If you are under the age of 18, please do not submit anything on my guestbook, forum, or contact page unless you get approval from your parents to do so. Please include your parents' approval with your submission.
