Privacy Policy


Email: ken[at]

I am committed to maintaining the trust and confidence of all visitors to this site.
In particular, I want you to know that I am not in the business of selling, renting,
or trading email lists with other companies and businesses for marketing purposes.

In this privacy policy, I’ve provided detailed information on when and why I collect
personal information, how I use it, the limited conditions under which I may disclose
it to others, and how I keep it secure.

I take your privacy seriously and take measures to provide all visitors and users
of this website with a safe and secure environment.

What personal data I collect and why I collect it.


When someone visits this website, there may be an ability to submit comments
on particular articles or pages. When comments are submitted you are entitled
to use aliases or information that completely hides your identity. When a comment
is submitted, relevant details (name, email, website) that you provide are stored.
These details are stored so that I can display your comments back to you and to
anyone viewing the comments sections on the site. I do not verify the information
entered nor do I require verification. Email addresses are not publicly displayed.

When visitors leave comments on the site I collect the data shown in the comments
form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may
be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service
privacy policy is available here: After approval
of your comment, your Gravatar profile picture is visible to the public in the
context of your comment.


This website may set and access cookies on your computer. Cookies are used
to provide my system with the basic information to provide the services you are
requesting. Cookies can be cleared at any time from your Internet browser settings.

Google Analytics

When someone visits this website I use a third-party service, Google Analytics,
to collect standard Internet log information and details of visitor behavior patterns.
I do this to track things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the
site and interactions with the site. This information is processed in a way which
does not identify anyone. I do not make, and do not allow Google to make, any
attempt to find out the identities of visitors to this website.

Mailing Lists

As part of the registration process for my newsletter, I collect personal information.
I use that information for a couple of reasons: to tell you about stuff you’ve asked
me to tell you about; to contact you if I need to obtain or provide additional
information; to check my records are correct and to check every now and then
that you are happy and satisfied. I do not rent or trade email lists with other
organizations, businesses or individuals.

I use a third-party provider, SendShark, to deliver my newsletters. I gather
statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies
to help me monitor and improve my newsletter. For more information please
see Send Shark’s privacypolicy. You can unsubscribe to general mailings at any
time of the day or night by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any of
my emails.

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.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional
third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content,
including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an
account and are logged in to that website.

Access to Your Personal Information

You are entitled to view, amend, or delete the personal information that I hold.
Email your request to ken[at] and I will work with
you to remove any of your personal data I may have.

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to
receive an exported file of the personal data I hold about you, including any data
you have provided to me. You can also request that I erase any personal data
I hold about you. This does not include any data I am obliged to keep for
administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Changes to my privacy policy

I may make changes to my privacy policy in the future, however, the most
current version of the policy will govern my processing of your personal data
and will always be available at the following URL:

If I make a change to this policy that, in my sole discretion, is material, I will
notify you by an update or email, where possible. By continuing to access or
use my services, you agree to be bound by the terms of my privacy policy.
