When you visit my website you may provide me with two types of information: personal information that you knowingly disclose, collected on an individual basis, and website use information, collected on an aggregate basis.
You may provide me with information about yourself when you visit my website. This information may be used for the purposes of contacting you, and administering the website.
Website Use Information
I collect information regarding your activities on my website. This helps me to determine how best to provide useful information to you, and to understand which parts of my website are of most interest to you.
I, or a third party acting on my behalf, may use standard technologies, such as web server logs, to tailor and improve the web content that I deliver to you.
This website uses various Web Analytics tools (such as Google Analytics) and other measurement tools to help me to analyze how you use the site. These tools use “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to collect standard internet log information and visitor behaviour information in an anonymous form. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) is transmitted to Google, and the other vendors that may be assisting me in my analysis. This information is then used to evaluate visitors' use of the website and to compile statistical reports on website activity.
I will never (and will not allow any third party to) use the statistical analytics tools to track or to collect any personally identifiable information about you. The Web Analytics providers do not associate your IP address with any other data held by them. Neither I, nor the Web Analytics Vendors, will link, or seek to link, an IP address with the identity of a computer user. I will not associate any data gathered from this site with any personally identifying information from any source, unless you explicitly submit that information via a fill-in form on my website.
Sharing Information with Third Parties
I respect your right to privacy when using my website. I am the sole owner of the customer information collected on this site, and will not share this information in any ways other than those disclosed in this statement.
I do not provide personal identifying information to third parties for the marketing of their products and services.
This website may contain links to other sites, and I am not responsible for the privacy practices of those other sites. I encourage you to be aware of when you leave my site, and to read the privacy statements of each and every website that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected on my website.
