1.  Hello Again

By now you’ve read our Terms of Service.  If you have not, do not pass go, and do not collect $200.  Go back to the Terms of Service and stay there until you read and agree to them, because we need you to agree to both that document and this Privacy Policy to be allowed to use our Site.

2.  Personal Information We Collect

Ok, you’ve already read and agreed to our Terms of Service, so we’re just repeating ourselves now, but we will collect your name and e-mail address, as well as other relevant info from you when you use our site.  You also know that you’re not allowed to use our site unless you’re old enough to see a PG-13 movie without a guardian or a fake ID.

3.  Non-Personal Information We Collect

We may collect information about you that is not personal information.  When you access our website, we may collect such things as your IP address, browser, operating system, referring URL, and other general information about our visitors.  This information, on its own, cannot usually be used to identify you unless someone has a fortune telling gypsy or a crystal ball.

4.  Use of Information

We may use your information:

  • To enhance or improve user experience.
  • To send e-mails about our website or respond to inquiries.
  • To send a newsletter.
  • To send third party offers (we’ll try to keep these relevant and not send you stuff about futons that are only $1 plus $10,000 shipping).
  • To do anything else you consent for us to do.

5.  Cookies.  Mmm… cookies.

We use cookies to save your preferences and track ads.  For this reason, it is necessary that you have cookies enabled in order to get the most out of our service.

We also use cookies to keep track of advertisements.  Please note that we use Google AdSense to display some advertisements, which uses the DoubleClick cookie.  For instructions on disabling the DoubleClick cookie, visit

6.  Third Party Websites

We may link to third party websites from our own website.  We have no control over, and are not responsible for, these third party websites or their use of your personal information.  We recommend that you review their privacy policies and other agreements governing your use of their website.  Yes, it’s boring, but it prevents you from signing away your house just so you can play a crappy flash game somewhere.

7.  Third Party Access to Your Information

We protect your information from being accessed by third parties and even fourth parties.  However, since we may employ outside maintenance personnel or use a third party to host our material, there are third party entities which may have custody or access to your information.  Because of this, it is necessary that you permit us to give access to your information to third parties to the same extent that you authorize us to do so.  For greater certainty, every authorization which you grant to us in this Privacy Policy, you also grant to any third party that we may hire, contract, or otherwise retain the services of for the purpose of operating, maintaining, repairing, or otherwise improving or preserving our website or its underlying files or systems.  You agree not to hold us liable for the actions of any of these third parties, even if we would normally be held vicariously liable for their actions, and that you must take legal action against them directly should they commit any tort or other actionable wrong against you.

Without limiting the generality of the foregoing (fancy talk for, “these aren’t the only things we use”), you authorize us to use the following third party services:

  • Aweber
  • Clicky
  • Google AdSense
  • Google Analytics

8.  Law Enforcement (The Po-po)

We may disclose your information to a third party where we believe, in good faith, that it is desirable to do so for the purposes of a civil action, criminal investigation, or other legal matter.  In the event that we receive a subpoena affecting your privacy, we may elect to notify you to give you an opportunity to file a motion to quash the subpoena, or we may attempt to quash it ourselves, but we are not obligated to do either.  If Jack Bauer tells us you’re threatening ‘mericka with some devious scheme, we’ll probably just release the info.  If the KGB says they need to find out who you are because you’ve insulted Mother Russia, we’ll probably tell you so you can fight the warrant/subpoena/whatever they use over there.

9.  Security of Information

We take steps to protect our systems, including having guard towers and rabid cobra snakes surrounding our servers.  However, we make no representations as to the security or privacy of your information.  It is in our interest to keep our website secure, but we recommend that you use anti-virus software, firewalls, and other precautions to protect yourself from security threats.

10.  Amendments

We may amend this Privacy Policy from time to time, and the amended version will be posted on our website in place of the old version.  Like our Terms of Service, you must visit this page each time you come to our website and read and agree to it if the date it was last modified is more recent than the last time you agreed to the Privacy Policy.  If you do not agree to the new Privacy Policy, you must immediately cease using our site and service.
