What personal data we collect and why we collect it

We intentionally collect as little data as possible and use that data: to make informed decisions about improvements to our site, to maintain the health and security of the site, and to facilitate personal interactions with our audience.

Our data collection efforts are both active—information that you choose to supply to us—and passive—information that your browser supplies to us automatically.

Active data collection efforts include email marketing sign ups and contact forms, though we currently do not employ the latter. When you sign up, the personal data you provide us is your name and email address. This data constitutes personally identifiable data.

Passive data collection efforts include server logs and website analytics. The data collected is: Technical information related to your browser version and operating system, usage information about what pages you visit, and some potentially personally identifiable data like your IP address.
