Privacy Policy

Who I am

What this is

This is a privacy policy based on the default text thoughtfully provided by WordPress for those who need a privacy policy. The privacy risks presented by this site are minimal and in fact almost certainly zero, but just in case I need a privacy policy, I have created one.


Comments (other than mine) are not allowed and so no information is collected when you post one, because you can’t.


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. But you can’t upload images, either, so this paragraph is also irrelevant.


This site may set a temporary cookie to determine whether your browser accepts cookies. I really don’t know. But if it does, that cookie would contain no personal data and would be discarded when you close your browser.

If you were to log in, edit something, or publish an article, the site might also set up cookies to save limited information related to those tasks. But you can’t do any of those things, so I wouldn’t worry about it.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may (but rarely do) 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.

Those websites might 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. This website doesn’t do that itself, though.

Who I share your data with

No one, unless you sign up for the email newsletter by entering your address in the form on the first page. Even then, only the data you input for that purpose would be shared with anyone, and then only with MailChimp, the email-list-service provider, and only for the purpose of sending the email that you, the reader, asked to have sent to you.

How long I retain your data

I don’t have any of your data, except for what you entered for purposes of an email communication. I retain that minimal data indefinitely, I guess, but again only through the MailChimp site and only for the purposes of sending you emails. If you unsubscribe, I believe that data still stays in my MailChimp archive, but I have never used such an email to send anything unsolicited, and would be happy to remove it if you like. No one but me (and I suppose MailChimp) has access to that data.

What rights you have over your data

You can ask me to erase any personal data I might have about you, although I don’t have any with the exception listed above, but if I do I would be glad to erase it upon request. This does not include any data I might be obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes, but I don’t know of any data like that.

Where your data is sent

Nowhere, with the exception discussed above.
