What personal data we collect and why we collect it


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. We have turned comments off and don’t allow new users to this site.

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: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment. We do NOT control individuals’ gravatar and icon images. They control those. We have NO way of knowing if they have the right to use that image. They can change it from one they can use to one they stole and we wouldn’t be updated.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website. The photos we use are from iStockPhoto – a royalty free account that we pay for the rights to use their images on our site. You may not use the images. We have many images we get from pexels.com and various artists. At the time of the download (July 10-19, 2022) the images and videos on this page were listed as free for use. If you like them, go to our page of photo credits to find those artists and see if the images are still available.

Contact forms

We only collect information in our contact forms so we can answer your questions via phone or email. We ask for minimal information such as first/last name, email address and phone to expedite your request for information. We NEVER share this information with anyone or any company outside our firm. If you request to be removed from our list, we will do it right away without retaining a record of your information. You would have to resubmit to get back on our list.


If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving 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.

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.

When 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.

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.

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.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


Who we share your data with – NO ONE.

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.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, 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.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

How we protect your data

Our forms pass through an encrypted HTTPS hosting. They are delivered via email to us so we can respond. We do not add you to our contacts unless you wish to continue beyond our initial contact with you.

What data breach procedures we have in place:

We have daily backups of both our database and files going back 30 days. After 30 days, the backups fall from the system and are deleted permanently.

What third parties we receive data from – Google Analytics and Intercom for our chat.

Third-party companies have their own policies. We review them when we are prompted to update our accounts, but we do not control what they do with the data they receive.
