Typical Information Collection
All web servers track basic information about each visit, whether computer ('bot') or human visitor. This information includes, but is not limited to, IP addresses, browser software details, time of visit, resources requested (pages, videos, etc) and referring pages. None of this information can personally identify any specific visitors to this site. This information is provided by machines for routine administration and maintenance purposes.
Cookies and Web Beacons
Only used where necessary, cookies store information about a visitor's preferences and history in order to better serve the visitor and/or present the visitor with customized content. The HTTP protocol on the web is a stateless protocol and cannot remember information about visitors between visits. Cookies were created as a solution to this limitation and are in wide use among many web sites. We do not use these in most instances.
In some cases we may ask for your email address voluntarily such as for a free giveaway or to sign up for our email list or other purpose. Email addresses are never shared with advertisers or anyone else. We don't send spam email and we don't purchase, give or sell email addresses. We use the very strict double opt-in policy which requires a person to sign up for our list online as well as respond to a confirmation email from their email address to verify they indeed have ultimate control of the requesting address.
