Who We Are
My name is Eric (contact).
This site is a WordPress site so the Jetpack Stats plugin collects info about visitors.
I use a security plugin that looks at your IP address and related info to protect this site from the bad guys.
When the polls widget is active it will log your IP addy to keep voter fraud down.
Embedded content from other websites, Amazon, and Google ads may track you.
Intelligent folks use adblockers like Ublock Origin and Privacy Badger to block these.
I do not share any information with anyone for any reason.
We collect information about visitors who comment on sites that use our Akismet anti-spam service. The information we collect depends on how the User sets up Akismet for the Site, but typically includes the commenter’s IP address, user agent, referrer, and Site URL (along with other information directly provided by the commenter such as their name, username, email address, and the comment itself). If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
