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.
The only information we do collect is Google tracking information so we can review the traffic to our sites (it helps us identify errors and what works and what doesn’t content-wise, etc.). The anonymous data is collected by Google Analytics and secured by them. We see only the resulting data in reports and graphs showing things like what City, State and Country a visitor make connect from, where they first came in, from where, what other pages they looked at and for how long, etc. Visitor’s IP addresses are the most we ever know about a visitor which often just indicates a visitor’s ISP like Comcast, etc.
Who we share your data with
We share no data with anyone and never will.
How long we retain your data
For users that register on our websites, we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, export and/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 our sites, 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.
