Privacy Policy

 

The Basics:

We are Old School Geeks who think Privacy is the coolest.  We have no interest in selling your information, and we don’t do that.   We only collect what is necessary for the operation of this site.  If you subscribe to us, we will have your email address.  We use cookies to gather group information (how many unique users, what parts of the world are folks checking in from, that sort of thing).  But, those are just for group stats, not you personally.  If you make comments on this blog, those comments will be visible to us and other users.  Also, we allow advertisements.  Advertisers keep track of clicks and hits, etc through the use of cookies.  So, there is that.  But, they are prohibited from using that information other than as necessary to conduct our business.  Sometimes we might link to other sites or products.  Those sites have their own privacy policies which might be different than ours.  And, that is about it.

If you want more details, here is The Full Legalese.
