Privacy Policy

This page outlines's policy concerning your privacy. You should also read my No Spam Policy.

What sort of information is requested from me on this site?

If you chose to use one of the Wizards available on this site, you will be asked to supply information that is needed by the Wizard to generate the JavaScript, Perl script, PHP script, web page, etc, that you requested.

In addition, if you email me using this site's contact form, you will be asked to enter your contact information, that is, your email address and name.

What is done with my email address?

If any of the wizards require you to enter your email address, such as the Feedback Form Wizard, it will be because the script or web page generated requires an email address. For example, the Feedback Form Wizard needs your email address to create a script which will allow visitors to your web site to send you feedback. The email address that you enter into the wizard is not stored, nor is it sent to anyone.

As for the email address you enter into the contact form, it will only be used for the purpose of replying to your message.

What is done with the information requested by the Wizards?

The wizards ask only for the information needed to generate the scripts or web pages you requested, and the information is used solely to create those things. It is neither stored nor sent to anyone.

Note: If you use a third party service that the site links to, you will have to check their privacy policy yourself. I have no control over those third party services. Links to third party websites are supplied as a convenience and service to you. Use them at your own risk.

Do you sell my email address to any third party?


Do you store cookies in my web browser?

  1. By default, without your intervention, itself does not use cookies on its pages.

  2. One of the site's advertisers, Google, uses cookies in the course of serving advertisements. You can read more information about Google's use of cookies here.

  3. On the pages where Google adverts appear, I display a "This site uses cookies" notice. While I have tried my best to make sure that the notice obstructs as little of the content as possible, I realize that if you are reading the articles on a small screen, even a brief notice can use up valuable screen space, hampering your effort to read the page efficiently.

    As such, if you click the "Close" button to get rid of the notice, saves that setting and remembers it on its other pages, so as not to inconvenience you any further. The method provided by the web protocols/standards to save settings is by storing a cookie. In other words, if you click the "Close" button, will actually end up saving a cookie where previously it didn't.

    That said, the cookie contains no personal information and cannot be used to track you. In fact, everyone who clicks the "Close" button gets the exact same cookie. Specifically, the cookie only has the words "user_wants_notice_gone=y". All pages on will obey that cookie and not display any notice as long as the cookie exists. The cookie expires after 365 days, so if you come back to this site after a year, you'll have to click the "Close" button again.
