Your privacy is critically important to us. At we have a few fundamental principles:

  • We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
  • We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop products, or protect our rights.
  • We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services. (“KevinBurns”) operates several websites, It is KevinBurns policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors
Like most website operators, KevinBurns collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. KevinBurns’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how KevinBurns’s visitors use its website. From time to time, KevinBurns may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
KevinBurns also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on blogs. KevinBurns only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to KevinBurns’s websites choose to interact with KevinBurns in ways that require KevinBurns to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that KevinBurns gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up to comment at to provide a username and email address. In each case, KevinBurns collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with KevinBurns. KevinBurns does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics
KevinBurns may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, KevinBurns may monitor the most popular blogs on the site or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. KevinBurns may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, KevinBurns does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
KevinBurns discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on KevinBurns’s behalf or to provide services available at KevinBurns’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using KevinBurns’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. KevinBurns will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, KevinBurns discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when KevinBurns believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of KevinBurns, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an KevinBurns website and have supplied your email address, KevinBurns may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with KevinBurns and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. KevinBurns takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

KevinBurns uses cookies to help KevinBurns identify and track visitors, their usage of KevinBurns website, and their website access preferences. KevinBurns visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using KevinBurns’s websites, with the drawback that certain features of KevinBurns’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.
Business Transfers
If KevinBurns, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that KevinBurns goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of KevinBurns may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

KevinBurns does not support or use Advertisements on his websites. See Disclosure Policy
Comments and other content submitted to the Akismet anti-spam service are not saved on our servers unless they were marked as false positives, in which case we store them long enough to use them to improve the service to avoid future false positives.

Although most changes are likely to be minor, KevinBurns may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in KevinBurns’s sole discretion. KevinBurns encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. If you have a account, you should also check your blog’s dashboard for alerts to these changes.
