Who we share your data with
Where we send your data
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
How long we retain your data
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.
How we protect your data
All our website pages are secured with Comodo certificates and SSL, as well as SiteLock. You will see https in the urls of all page addresses on all our sites. This is for your protection and ours. It minimizes the possibility of our being hacked or any of your information being compromised. On our sites where you may purchase products the payment process is handled exclusively on PayPal. NO credit/debit card numbers of any kind are ever saved on our servers.

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported FILE of the personal data we may hold about you, including any data you have provided to us.
You can also request that we ERASE any personal data we may hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
If you choose to not ask for removal, or do not confirm your choice to have us erase your data – please be assured that we have always maintained your privacy and will continue to do so in the future.
