My brain tends to fog over when I read privacy policies on other websites, so my intent in writing this policy is to be as clear as possible in relatively few words. Let me know via that form to the right if you have questions or concerns.
Big picture: The advertisers and my publishing platform collects information from visitors to this site. I don't see the anonymous information collected by advertisers, and I'm only interested in the aggregated site data collected by my publishing platform.
Beyond that, the Squarespace content management system I use to publish this website tracks IP addresses and webpages visited. I don't use the IP information for any reason -- I'm only interested in the aggregate information (e.g., which pages are most popular). If you submit a comment on this website, you are asked to provide an e-mail address, which is only shown to me and not visible to readers. I will never use that e-mail except in the off-chance I need to communicate with you regarding your comment.
Finally, I do solicit e-mail addresses for my newsletters. I use those addresses only for communication via e-mail and my newsletter provider, MailChimp, allows you to opt-out at any time. I will never sell or rent your address ever.
