Two types of information about users of this site are collected:

Consistent with the Federal Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA), this site will never knowingly request personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 13 without requesting parental consent.
USE OF INFORMATION
I create aggregate reports on user demographics and traffic patterns in order to tailor content to users. However, I do not correlate this information with data about individual users. I do break down overall usage statistics according to a user’s domain name, browser type, and MIME type by reading this information from the browser string (information contained in every user’s browser).
These statistics help determine which areas of the site users like and don’t like. I do not track what individual users read, but rather how well each page performs overall.
I use information voluntarily given by users to enhance their experience on this site, whether to provide interactive or personalized elements or to better prepare future content based on user interests.
STORAGE & SECURITY
I will protect personal information by reasonable security safeguards against loss or theft, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use or modification.
I will not share or disclose any information about any individual user with any third party, except to comply with applicable law or valid legal processes or to protect the personal safety of users or the public.
I am committed to conducting my business in accordance with these principles in order to ensure that the confidentiality of personal information is protected and maintained.
