Privacy Policies

To be compliant with new GDPR rules, following is a new combined Privacy Policy as of May 24, 2018. Please excuse any duplication of information. We figure better duplicated than omitted. Since we're users just like you and are also concerned about private user-identifiable information, most of the following regarding data retention had already been addressed in our Privacy Policy back in 2009. We will be changing the formatting of this page soon as well as adding direct links in many sections. We will also be adding an automated disclosure option where you will be able to see all retained data without requesting it through email. This will save everyone time.
