The simple act of visiting a website leaves a trail of information, a “digital footprint,” about visitors like you. Sometimes this footprint is vague and preserves your anonymity and other times it is tied specifically to you and your real life identity.
If all you do is click around and read pages, the data captured about you is vague. If you leave a comment or sign up for a newsletter, the data captured about you is sometimes very specific. Almost all web sites today collect data in this fashion about visitors, and this site is no different.
I do not sell information about visitors to this site to any third party, but I do use it to analyze site traffic and optimize your reading experience. If you choose to share your personal information by leaving comments, filling out contact forms, etc., I may use it to contact you.
While respecting the privacy of others is an important value, I may choose to provide information gathered here to law enforcement entities if I believe it is necessary to do so.
