We do not collect any personal information about you without asking. The only personal information we hold is those of e-mail list signups, where we store the name and e-mail provided, as well as the country of the IP address. We collect no other information that could identify you personally (such as your name, e-mail, telephone number, etc.)
Through connecting our site with Google, we do collect information about you that is non-personal. Some examples are:
- Details about your demographic (age, gender, etc.)
- Where you’re connecting to us from
- General connection info (such as time of access, time spent on the site, pages visited, if you’ve connected before, IP address)
- Terms that you searched to find us on Google
How we use your information
We try to use any of the information we collect to both improve this website and improve your user experience with us. We will never use your information for anything other than to improve our quality.
Some examples of ways we may use your information could be:
- Identifying our biggest demographics, and tailoring our content accordingly
- Reviewing what pages our audience like the most, and trying to replicate that quality on lower-performing pages
- Investigate any suspicious activities that could be a threat to our website (like a lot of connections from what seem like spam or malicious sources, rather than from normal readers)
- Disclosure of Information
As we do not collect personal information, we also do not disclose personal information.
We may disclose non-personal information if we believe it will help us improve the site. For example, getting third-party experts to help us analyze our website data, so that they can provide us with suggestions on how to further improve the website.
