Information Collection and Use:
With the exception of the blog, forum, and feedback pages, this web site does not collect personal information from visitors.
The blog allows visitors who are reading a blog post made within the previous 90 days to leave comments. In order to leave a comment, you must create a login and you may need to provide information such as your name and e-mail address in addition to the comment you want to make. However, I believe only your username and comment are the only pieces of information that is actually published as publicly visible.
The forum asks for your name, e-mail address, and any comments you may have. Whatever you enter will be visible to any visitor who visits the forum after you make your forum post.
The feedback page asks for your name, e-mail address, and any comments you have. Anything you submit on the feedback page is converted to an e-mail that is sent to me. It will not be posted where anyone can see it. Information provided on the feedback page will not be given, sold, rented, or leased to any third party unless we are required to do so by law or court order.
The hosting provider of my web site records some data for all requests sent to my web site. This data includes your IP address, the date and time of your visit, which web page on this web site that you visited, which web page you previously visited (which may or may not be a web page on this web site), the name and version number of the web browser you are using, and whether your request was handled successfully. No personally identifiable information is recorded by our hosting provider.
We reserve the right to disclose your personally identifiable information collected on the guestbook, forum, and feedback pages as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on our website.
If you are under the age of 18, please do not submit anything on our guestbook, forum, or feedback page unless you get approval from your parents to do so.
