I despise spam as much as anyone, and, honestly, the careless exchange of info over the Internet these days makes me nervous. I take your privacy as seriously as I take mine--in other words, very seriously.
Like most Web sites, mine uses server logs to collect data such as your IP address, the date and time of visits, the pages viewed and for how long, and stuff like that. I’m really not tech-savvy enough to make this data useful for myself, but it’s there if I need it. Server logs do not collect any kind of personally identifying information.
If you communicate with me through e-mail (and I hope you will), I may retain the content of your message, along with your e-mail address and my responses. You know, like friends exchanging letters. These messages are retained on the same hosting service that hosts my Web site domain (Hostek.com). E-mail is not considered a secure form of communication; therefore, do not send sensitive information via e-mail.
If you e-mail me about buying a book, I will retain all of the information necessary for tax purposes. Since I’m super-cautious about that sort of thing, I may retain the information for up to seven years.
There is one exception to my strict no-sharing-personal-information policy. I’m a law-abidin’ citizen, folks. If compelled to do so by law or for my legal protection, I will disclose whatever information necessary.
http://darcyfornier.com contains links to other Web sites. Because I find broken links excessively provoking, I try very hard to keep these links working, but I cannot guarantee their accuracy. Just because I link to an external site, or another site links to my Web site, does not mean I endorse the sponsors of those sites or the products or information presented therein.

You have my respect if you made it through this whole thing. Are you bored to tears yet? :)
