Privacy Policy

I value your privacy and want you to understand the choices and control you have over your information.  The following changes will take effect for existing users of my services from May 25, 2018 onward. I encourage you to review the Privacy Policy.

GDPR: On May 25, 2018, a new European Union (EU) data protection law, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), takes effect. The GDPR gives individuals in the EU more control over how their data is used and places certain obligations on businesses that process information of those individuals. I have updated the Privacy Policy to take into account the new requirements of the GDPR.
