Privacy Policy is owned and operated by Friedel & Andrew Grant.

Because we gather certain types of information about our users, we feel you should understand our policy and the terms and conditions surrounding the capture and use of that information. This privacy statement discloses what information we gather and how we use it.


Information we gather through aggregated tracking information is derived mainly by tallying page views throughout our sites. This information allows us to better tailor our content to readers’ needs and to help our advertisers better understand the demographics of our audience. We derive a small but vital revenue from advertising and providing such aggregated demographic data is essential to keeping our service free to users. Under no circumstances do we divulge any information about an individual user to a third party.


We may place a text file called a “cookie” in the browser files of your computer. The cookie itself does not contain Personal Information although it will enable us to relate your use of this site to information that you have specifically and knowingly provided. But the only personal information a cookie can contain is information you supply yourself. A cookie can’t read data off your hard disk or read cookie files created by other sites. We use cookies to track user traffic patterns (as described above). Our advertising system delivers a one-time cookie to better track ad impressions and click rates.

You can refuse cookies by turning them off in your browser. If you’ve set your browser to warn you before accepting cookies, you will receive the warning message with each cookie. You do not need to have cookies turned on to use this site. However, you do need cookies to participate actively in comments, polling and surveys.

In particular, our site displays Adsense ads from Google, which include a DoubleClick DART cookie. This means that:

  • Google, as a third party vendor, uses cookies to serve ads on this site.
  • Google’s use of the DART cookie enables it to serve ads to you based on your visit to this site and other sites on the Internet.
  • You may opt out of the use of the DART cookie by visiting the Google ad and content network privacy policy.


The DoubleClick DART cookie is used by Google in the ads served on publisher websites displaying AdSense for content ads. When you visit an AdSense publisher’s website and either view or click on an ad, a cookie may be dropped on your browser. The data gathered from these cookies will be used to help AdSense publishers better serve and manage the ads on their site(s) and across the web.
