Anonymous user behavior
We use website analytics tools such as Google Analytics. These tools collect and store data pertaining to your interactions with our website, such as the pages visited, and links clicked. They may also collect information about the characteristics of specific users, such as your country, city, or device.
This data is used to create aggregate reports pertaining to user behavior, and is not used to identify specific users.

- Affiliate partner websites seeing your IP address/user agent string as you click through from our website.
- Like nearly all websites, our file system and database are hosted with a third party. This hosting provider therefore stores certain data such as comments you leave, and your IP address.
- Mail service providers storing form submission data. When you submit a form on our website or leave a comment, we may receive an email notification with details of your message. This email is stored on third-party mail servers.
