Privacy Policy

Your privacy is very important. To keep your privacy safe, we created this Policy so you understand how we treat data that we collect from visitors to, or when someone subscribes to our newsletter.


When someone visits (that’s you, right now… hi!) we use a common third-party service, Google Analytics, to track anonymous behavior. That means we learn things such as the number of visitors to each page or how long a page gets looked at, but we cannot see any identifying information.

We do not try to learn identifying information about our visitors, nor do we allow Google Analytics to try to identify our visitors. Additionally, we have set user and event information to expire as soon as possible, which is 14 months.

If and when we do want to collect personally identifiable information on, it will be obvious we are doing so and we will make it clear why we are collecting that information and how it will be used. For instance…

Newsletter Sign Up

When someone wants to receive email newsletters from us we need to collect some personal information. We use that information to send subscribers information they’ve asked to receive (and only that information), to contact them if we need to learn or provide more information, and to ensure our records are accurate.

To make our email magic happen (that means sending our newsletter), we use a third-party service called MailChimp. MailChimp automatically collects some industry-standard information, such as email opens and email link clicks. This helps us figure out if you like the content we’re sending so we can send you more of what you like and less of what you don’t. To learn more about how MailChimp keeps your information secure, visit MailChimp’s privacy notice.

If someone signs up for our email newsletter and changes their mind, they can easily unsubscribe or opt-out of future emails by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of every email we send.

Your Personal Information

You have the right to access the personal information we have for you (if any). To request your data, please email


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.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. 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.


No, not that kind. ???? Cookies are text files stored on the device you visit from, and they contain a small amount of information. That information gets passed back to the originating website or another website that can recognize that cookie when you visit again later. That information gets used in a couple of ways:

Necessary Cookies

These are cookies that are required to use a service or feature a visitor specifically asks for. They’re needed to use the website’s features, such as secure areas and shopping carts.

Experience Cookies

These are cookies that remember your preferences, and by using you agree that we can place these cookies on your device.

The cookies track things like language, region, changes you make to text size, and other things that enhance your experience on They provide a better set of features that are more tailored to your wants and can also be used to provide services you request, such as watching a video or commenting on blog posts.

However, you should know that the information may be anonymized and can’t track what you do on other websites.

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to save your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

Performance Cookies

Performance Cookies track anonymous information from the pages that are visited on, and by using you agree that we can place these cookies on your device.

They don’t collect personally identifying information and the data is aggregated. What they do is collect information about how is being used, such as which pages are being visited and any errors showing up for visitors. We use this information to make a better place.

Third-Party Cookies

These cookies let other tools and services track the success of their application or customize their service for you. However, we cannot access these cookies, and the third parties cannot access the data in the cookies used on our site.

Some services we use which may use these cookies include Google Analytics, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, but there may be more depending on your use of For example, if you “share” a blog post to Linkedin, they may place a cookie on your device.

We do not have control over these cookies, and we encourage you to visit the privacy policy for those websites to learn more about their cookies and how to manage them.

A Note About Facebook Ads

We may opt to put a Facebook “Pixel” (read: cookie) on some of our pages. The pixel tracks things like whether a visitor has landed on a page or taken a certain action, such as clicking a button or submitting a form. We do this so we have the option to run ads on Facebook or Instagram to get in touch with more of our audience and other wonderful people who might want to come have fun with us.

How Long Our Cookies Keep

Much like the tasty kind, there are different types of cookies. They fall mostly into two categories; persistent and session.

Session cookies track data for only one “browser session”, which is a fancy way of saying from the time you open your browser to when you close it. They’re temporary and get deleted when you close your browser.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

Persistent cookies stay on your device for a set amount of time, and that time may be reset each time someone visits The length of time may vary, and if it’s a third-party cookie, we may not have control of that time. We will, however, make sure it’s the minimum time allowed when we are able.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

If you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.
