Who we are

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
Currently comments are disabled on the site so this feature is not used and info is not collected, however the comment feature may be enabled in the future without notice.
Messages sent to us through the contact forms found on the homepage and sidebar will store the name, email and message of the sender. The IP address may also be checked through a spam detection plugin to prevent spam in the contact form. Your information sent through the contact form is never used for advertising and solely for the purpose of responding to your message. The message is then forwarded to Gmail so that we can respond to it.

All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
