Once upon a time I made light of privacy policies for small websites like this, because I always thought I'm telling you I'm not abusing your data and that's all that should matter. In light of recent events, I've re-thought that policy, and now provide you with some more detail.
When emailing me, your are asked for your name and email address to allow me to reply. Your details will not be passed on. Except for serious circumstances, the content of your message will always be kept private.
As with the majority of websites, I use Google Analytics to monitor web traffic. This allows me to see which pages are popular, but does not disclose any personal or identifying detail.
Examples of these partners include Google Analytics, Google Adsense, Facebook, Twitter and AddThis.
