I've commented often about matters of privacy. It's only appropriate, therefore, that I disclose how privacy is protected and respected right here on this blog.
To keep it short and sweet:
- I collect zero data about readers, and that includes anyone who chooses to leave a comment. (You'd expect that, right?)
- For years, up until March 25, 2015, I also used Sitemeter to gather high-level visit statistics. Because of changes in Sitemeter practices -- they began serving ads to my readers, and slowing page loads for readers blocking ads -- this blog no longer uses that service.
- A final disclosure (and the reason I was originally inspired/obligated to write this post):
Amazon and the Amazon logo are trademarks of Amazon.com, Inc. or its affiliates.
#4 means, in English, that -- as of the (original) date of this post -- if a link in this blog takes you to Amazon.com and you buy a product there within what Amazon deems the appropriate time frame, I may be paid a small commission. I won't get rich thereby (though I appreciate the support), I won't see any of your personal data (that's entirely between you and Amazon), and you won't have paid Amazon any more than if you'd gotten to that etailer by another route.
We now return you to (I'll venture a guess) more interesting content ...
