Automatic Collection

A “cookie” is a small string of information that the website you visit transfers to your computer for identification purposes. Cookies can be used to follow your activity on the website and that information helps us to understand your preferences and improve your website experience.

Cookies are also used for such activities as remembering your username and password, if you use such a feature on this site. You can turn off all cookies, in case you prefer not to receive them. You can also have your computer warn you whenever cookies are being used.

For both options you have to adjust your browser settings (such as Mozilla, Firefox, or Internet Explorer). There are also software products available that can manage cookies for you. Please be aware, however, that when you choose to reject cookies, this choice may limit the functionality of the website you visit and you may lose access to some of its features.

Deleting or Modifying Personal Information

Because we do not usually accept any sort of registration (except on our “Answers” page, where such registration can be provided anonymously), there is usually no way for us to individually delete the information we collect.

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.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

As is the case with most websites, we use Google software for collecting anonymous data about how our users find us and what they do while on our page. This helps us maintain a high-quality experience for our users by letting us know which features they use the most. We do not control any individual information collected by Google. We have been informed that Google retains this anonymous user and event data for 26 months.

If you receive promotional e-mails from us, they will always contain a link at the bottom allowing you to opt-out. Additionally, you can choose to have all your personal information deleted from our database. If you become a client, however, we will retain your client file pursuant to our normal client file retention policy. We encourage you promptly to update your personal information when it changes.
