Privacy Policy

This site is one of my nickel-generators, with affiliate links discreetly scattered here and there. I’ve tried to keep it low-key, but Google’s rules still require that I provide a privacy policy. The text below is adapted from boilerplate available online and is not particularly optimized for this site… it covers cookies related to the Google ads. My only use of log files is to find out what search terms people are using to land here, keep an eye on the most popular pages, and see who’s linking to me.
