I'm not a lawyer so I'll to try to keep this simple and to the point.
First, I value your privacy as much as I value mine and I will not violate this trust.

If you leave a comment on my blog the system collects your email address and IP address. I do not disclose this information.
If you subscribe to receive my articles or comments I have your email address but do not disclose this. I may however use this to contact you about your subscription. This would be rare - I've never had to do this in the 2+ years I've had my blog.
My blog contains links to other sites both commecial and non-commercial. I am not responsible for the privacy practices of those sites. You are stongly encouraged to review the privacy statements of these other sites.
My blog and feed may contain third-party advertisements which may collect user information. These are believed to be reputable firms. However, you are stongly encouraged to review the privacy statements of these other sites.

This site, sites I link to, and third-party advertiser may use both session ID cookies and persistent cookies that are never personally identifiable by clients. For the session ID cookie, once users close the browser, the cookie simply terminates. A persistent cookie is a small text file stored on the user's hard drive for an extended period of time. Persistent cookies can be removed by following your browser help file directions.
I may update or change this policy as needed without notice or specific notification. Please check this periodically for any changes that may be of interest to you.
