Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
We use a non-corporate, non-invasive analytics tool we’re proud to partner with. They are called Fathom Analytics. This tool gathers information that helps us improve our website without giving profiling information to corporations who then use your personal data to profit.
Who we share your data with
If you purchase items from our online store, you will be asked to provide payment details via Square, Stripe checkout or Paypal. Square, Stripe and Paypal are all third-party payment processing services. Read their privacy policies here: https://squareup.com/us/en/legal/general/privacy https://stripe.com/privacy or https://paypal.com

How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. 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.
