Privacy Policy

Pursuant to US law, which requires us to comply with certain EU regulations, and to our agreement with Google, this page provides information about this website’s privacy policy.

If you have questions or comments about our privacy policy, please write to us at our email address or post a comment at the bottom of this page.

Anonymous traffic statistics

Like most websites today, uses Google Analytics to collect anonymous traffic statistics. For example, Google Analytics tells us how many people looked at a particular page on a certain day and how many of them were referred by Facebook. It doesn't tell us anything about individuals. It doesn't record or tell us your name or address or anything else that could identify you. Google Analytics uses cookies. For more information, or to opt out of Google Analytics, go here:

Google Analytics web site.

Our web server uses Apache, the most widely used server software in the world, to send web pages to your browser. Each time your browser requests a page from our site, Apache records your IP address, the time and date, and the URL of the page. The same thing happens with virtually every website in the world. The information is anonymous. It tells us nothing about you as an individual. We never look at it or do anything with it. We will never give or sell it to anyone else. For more information about Apache, go here:

Apache open source software

Our forum

If you create an account for yourself on's forum, the forum software will record your IP address and associate it with whatever email address you give us. It will also create cookies so it can recognize you next time you log into the forum. This happens only if you create a forum account. We do not look at this information or use it in any way. The only reason we collect it is that the forum software, which we didn't write, collects it automatically. We will never give or sell this information to anyone else. For more information about the forum software, go here:

PhpBB3 open source forum sofware

Disqus comments

Like many websites today, we use a third-party service named Disqus on the bottom of each page so people can post comments. We have enabled anonymous posting on Disqus. That means you don't have to register with Disqus or provide your real name or email address. Disqus records your IP address when you post a comment here and may also use cookies. For more information about Disqus, go here:

Disqus privacy policy.

Data retention

We retain collected data for an indefinite length of time.
