An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

If you choose to leave a comment on a blog post, then remember that the comment is public and visible to anyone that reads the comment section. Your email address is never shared or disclosed. Only your name and comment is visible to anyone. I reserve the right to remove any comments I deem inappropriate, profane or spammy without notice.

How long we retain your data

Affiliate Links

Posts on this website may also include affiliate links. An affiliate link is a product that if you order through my link, I would get a small commission at no additional cost to you.

I only recommend what I think would be beneficial to my readers.
