Privacy is a myth.
If you expect to visit ANY website and do so without leaving electronic ‘footprints,’ you’re sadly mistaken or incredibly naive. Having said that, you’re in luck. Because we believe in the concept of privacy. So here’s the 411 on our site…
We don’t really care who you are, where you’re from, or why you’re here. If you fill out a “contact us” form, we assume that gives us permission to contact you in return. In order to do that, you have to give us some personal info – your name, address, and so on. But we’re not some multinational corporation, bent on world domination. We’re just a personal website for a musician/magician/entertainer. So with that in mind, here’s what we promise you:
We don’t track you, specifically. We look at Google Analytics from time to time, but even that’s more of a curiosity. We couldn’t begin to tell you how to track a specific user – about the best we do is to find out some anonymous somebody visited our site from a particular city. That’s about as specific as we bother to get, and even that isn’t a focus of our work.
If you DO give us your contact info, we won’t sell, loan, lease or shop it to anybody. Our lips are sealed. If you ask for info from us, you’ll get it – and nothing else. You don’t need to worry about your info getting sold to some big advertising consortium or marketing combine. Never gonna happen.
Having had kids and having seen the effect the online world has on kids, we would really prefer that they stay away from our site. We won’t knowingly communicate with anybody under the age of 13. If you have a kid that likes our stuff, make sure you visit the site with them. We just don’t want the responsibility of corrupting youth.
We may – or may not be using ‘cookies.’ Not really sure. Depends on how WordPress is setup at the moment. If we do, it’s only to help you navigate the site. Nothing nefarious going on there. Plus, since there’s really no objectionable content on the site, we can’t imagine why anybody would care.
We take reasonable steps to insure the security of this site. Since we’re not selling anything online, that’s not really a big deal. But we try to keep the site hacker-free.
