When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help 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 profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Contact Forms

We collect personal data that you voluntarily provide to us (such as when you submit an inquiry or fill out a contact form), including name, email address, and any other data you choose to provide.


If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address, and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

Embedded Content From Other Websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. video, audio, 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 tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


This site uses the Google Analytics service that enables us to learn how visitors use the site: what pages and posts they visit, how long they stay on a particular page, where else they go in the site, where they came from, where they leave to, etc.

Such automatically-gathered data is used by Google Analytics for the purpose stated and does not include personally-identifying information.

Who I Share Your Data With

No one. I may disclose personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order, or another legitimate governmental request, or when we believe in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Communication Strategy Company LLC, third parties, or the public at large.

How Long I Retain Your Data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so I can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website, I also store the personal information they provide in their user profiles. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

Where I Send Your Data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
