This website/blog uses third-party advertising companies to serve ads when visiting this site. These third parties may add a cookie to collect and use information (but not your name, address, email address, or telephone number) about your visits to this and other websites in order to help analyze web traffic or to determine targeted advertisements based on your preferences and your visit to our site and other sites on the internet.

I respect your privacy and I am committed to safeguarding your privacy while online at this site reit This policy discloses how I gather and disseminate information for this Blog.

RSS Feeds and Email Updates

If a user wishes to subscribe to my RSS Feeds or Email Updates (powered by Feedburner), Feedburner asks for contact information such as name and email address. Users may opt-out of these communications at any time. Your personal information will never be sold or given to a third party. (You will never be spammed by me – ever).

If you subscribe to my feed in a feed reader, the only information I can obtain is collective information as to how many people are reading my feed in the different types of feed readers.

If you subscribe via email, I do have access to a listing of emails for everyone that has subscribed. I will not sell or use your email address to use it for anything other than delivering my feed to you through the Feedburner program. I dislike spam as much as the next person. I also will not contact you directly for any reason. The only exception is if you reply to the daily email with your thoughts. I will usually then reply to your email.

What if I don’t want to subscribe anymore to your blog’s feed?

If you have a feed reader, all you need to do is delete the feed. If you are currently receiving email updates there is an unsubscribe link at the bottom of the emails. If for some reason that link doesn’t work, feel free to contact me directly and I can go into the program that manages the emails and delete your address manually.

Log Files and Stats

I use Google Analytics mainly because I was curious about who visits the site. It turns out that people come from all over the world, oddly enough. This program stores information such as internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring, exit and visited pages, platform used, date/time stamp, track user’s movement in the whole, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses etc. are not linked to personally identifiable information.


A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user’s computer tied to information about the user. This blog doesn’t use cookies. However, I run ads on this site and some of these advertisers may use cookies on this site. I can’t access or control these cookies once the advertisers have set them.

You can adjust your internet settings to disable cookies if you have privacy concerns. Disabling cookies for all sites is not recommended as it may interfere with your use of some sites. The best option is to disable or enable cookies on a per-site basis. Consult your browser documentation for instructions on how to block cookies and other tracking mechanisms.


This Blog contains links to other sites. Please be aware that I am not responsible for the privacy practices of these other sites. I suggest my users to be aware of this when they leave this blog and to read the privacy statements of each and every site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this Blog.


I use outside ad companies to display ads on this blog. These ads may contain cookies and are collected by the advertising companies and I do not have access to this information. I work with the following advertising companies: Google Adsense and Commission Junction. Please check the advertisers websites for respective privacy policies.
