This site collects and uses personal information for the following reasons:
3.1 Tracking Website Traffic
Like most sites, we also use Google Analytics (GA) to track user activity. We use this data to determine the number of people who use our site to better understand how they find and use our web pages and to see their course on the site.
Although GA records data such as your geographic location, your device, your web browser, and your operating system, none of this information makes you personally known to us. GA also records your computer's IP address, which could be used to identify you, but Google does not provide access to it. We consider Google as a third data processing medium.
Disabling cookies on your browser will prevent GA from tracking any part of your visit to pages within that site.

If you choose to submit in the system for getting info for new articles on our website, the email address you submit will be promoted to Jetpack that provides us with subscription services for our e-mail. We consider Jetpack as a third data processing medium. (see section 6.0). The submitted e-mail address will not be stored in the database on this site or on any of our computer systems.
Your email address will remain in the Jetpack database as long as we continue to use Jetpack services for our site subscription services or until you explicitly request it to be removed from the list. You can do this by using the delete link contained in all the email newsletters we send you.

As long as your email address remains in the Jetpack database, you will receive newsletters from us every time we post a new article.
When visitors comment on an article, we collect the information they put in the commenting form, as well as their IP and browser information, so we can avoid spam.
