Analytics & data gathering
At this time we are not using analytics packages. We’ve been analyzed by Big Tech and others enough already. However, this section is subject to change should circumstances require it. Should we make a change, we will update this policy so you can be aware of what kind of data may be collected for analytical purposes. Log-in or system data generated for normal, typical use purposes is not considered distinct analytics data, but may be analyzed for usage and system performance concerns.
Data may be gathered from plugins being used for functional purposes as the site expands. We like to keep things extremely simple, but also practical. Should certain plugins call for modification of this policy, it will be updated to reflect what personal data might be collected and why. However, this will only extend to the descriptions provided by the plugin vendor.
We do use contact forms to be able to continue critical conversations with you. The data gathered in these forms are public in nature. You retain certain rights over your personal data as described below.

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.

We only share your information & data with individuals that have been thoroughly vetted by other members. If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email.
