This privacy policy has been compiled to better serve those who are concerned with how their “Personally Identifiable Information” (PII) is being used online. PII, as used in U.S. privacy law and information security, is information that can be used on its own or with other information to identify, contact, or locate a single person or to identify an individual in context.

Please read my privacy policy carefully to get a clear understanding of how I collect, use, protect or otherwise handle your Personally Identifiable Information in accordance with my website.

What personal information do you collect from people who visit your website or blog?

When registering on my site, you may be asked to enter your name, email address, phone number or other details as appropriate to help you with your experience.

When do you collect information?

I collect information from you when you register on my website, subscribe to my blog or fill out a contact form on the site.

How do you use my information?

I may use the information I collect from you in the following ways:

  • To personalize your experience and allow me to deliver the type of content and product offerings in which you are most interested
  • To allow me to better serve you in responding to your customer service requests
  • To send you periodic emails regarding your search or other products and services

How do you protect visitor information?

My website is protected by a firewall and scanned on a regular basis for security holes and known vulnerabilities in order to make your visit to my site as safe as possible.

I use an SSL certificate to verify my site’s authenticity. I do not share information with third parties.

Do you use “cookies”?

I use cookies to personalize your user experience, but not for tracking purposes.

You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies. Do this through your browser settings. Each browser is different, so look at your browser’s Help menu to learn the correct way to modify your cookies.

If you disable cookies, some features will be disabled that make your site experience more efficient, and some of my services will not function properly. However, you can still browse the site.

Third party disclosure

I do not sell, trade or otherwise transfer to outside parties your Personally Identifiable Information unless I provide you with advance notice. This does not include website hosting partners and other parties who assist me in operating my website, conducting my business or servicing you, as long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. I may also release your information when I believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce my site policies or protect my or others’ rights, property or safety. However, non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising or other uses.

Third-party links

Occasionally, at my discretion, I may include or offer third-party products or services on my website. These third-party sites have separate and independent privacy policies. I therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites. Nonetheless, I seek to protect the integrity of my site and welcome any feedback about these sites.


Google’s advertising requirements can be summed up by Google’s Advertising Principles. They are put in place to provide a positive experience for users.

Google, as a third-party vendor, uses cookies to serve ads on various sites. Google’s use of the DART cookie enables it to serve ads to users based on their visit to other sites on the Internet. Users may opt out of the use of the DART cookie by visiting the Google ad and content network privacy policy.

I, along with third-party vendors such as Google, use first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookies) and third-party cookies (such as the DoubleClick cookie) or other third-party identifiers together to compile data regarding your interactions with ad impressions and other ad service functions as they relate to my website.

Opting out:

You can set preferences for how Google advertises to you using the Google Ad Settings page. Alternatively, you can opt out by visiting the Network Advertising Initiative opt out page or permanently using the Google Analytics opt out browser add on.

California Online Privacy Protection Act (CalOPPA)

CalOPPA is the first state law in the nation to require commercial websites and online services to post a privacy policy. The law’s reach stretches well beyond California to require a person or company in the United States (and conceivably the world) that operates websites collecting Personally Identifiable Information from California consumers to post a conspicuous privacy policy on its website stating exactly the information being collected and those individuals with whom it is being shared, and to comply with this policy. (See more at the CalOPPA Online Privacy Protection Act website.)

In accordance with CalOPPA I agree to and have complied with the following:

  • You can visit my site anonymously
  • A link to this privacy policy is on my home page or on the first significant page you see after entering my site
  • My Privacy Policy link includes the word “Privacy” and can be found in the footer of every page on my website

You will be notified of any privacy policy changes:

  • On my Privacy Policy page

You are able to change your personal information:

  • By emailing me
  • By calling me
  • By using my site’s contact form

How does your site handle “Do Not Track” signals?

I honor “Do Not Track” signals and do not track, plant cookies or use advertising when a Do Not Track (DNT) browser mechanism is in place.

Does your site allow third-party behavioral tracking?

I do not allow third-party behavioral tracking.

Children Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA)

When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under 13, the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission, the nation’s consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children’s privacy and safety online.

I do not market to children under 13 years of age.

Fair Information Practices

The Fair Information Practices Principles form the backbone of privacy law in the United States, and the concepts they include have played a significant role in the development of data protection laws around the globe. Understanding the Fair Information Practice Principles and how they should be implemented is critical to comply with the various privacy laws that protect personal information.

In order to be in line with Fair Information Practices, I will take the following responsive action should a data breach occur:

I will notify users via in-site notification within seven business days.

I also agree to the individual redress principle, which requires that individuals have a right to pursue legally enforceable rights against data collectors and processors who fail to adhere to the law. This principle requires not only that individuals have enforceable rights against data users, but also that individuals have recourse to courts or a government agency to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.


The CAN-SPAM Act is a law that sets the rules for commercial email, establishes requirements for commercial messages, gives recipients the right to have emails stopped from being sent to them and spells out tough penalties for violations.

I collect your email address in order to:

  • Respond to inquiries and/or other requests or questions and send you periodic newsletters
  • Market to my mailing list or continue to send emails to you after the original transaction has occurred

To be in compliance with CAN-SPAM, I agree to the following:

  • Not use false or misleading subjects or email addresses
  • Identify the message as an advertisement in some reasonable way
  • Include the physical address of my business or site headquarters
  • Monitor third-party email marketing services for compliance, if any are used
  • Honor opt-out/unsubscribe requests quickly
  • Allow you to unsubscribe by using the link at the bottom of each email

If at any time you would like to unsubscribe from receiving future emails, you can email me at and I will promptly remove you from all correspondence.
