Privacy Policy

Who we are

My website address is:

This is a simple site operated by one person, Cynthia Perry. WordPress suggested some of the text below and it all sounds legal and whatnot. Please read on if you want more detail on what information might be collected and used. If you hate legalese as much as I do, it boils down to this:

I have no evil designs on your data and no intentions of sharing it inappropriately.

What personal data we collect and why


When visitors leave comments on the site, we collect the data shown in the comment form along with the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string. We use the latter for spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar privacy policy is available here:  After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Contact forms

Your name, email address and message establishes communication between you and myself, the website owner. Once we are in touch, you need not use the form, but may email me directly.


If you leave a comment on this site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you need more information about cookies and how WordPress sites employing the Jetpack plugin by Automattic use cookies, their cookie policy is available here:

Email Subscriptions

When you use a link to go from to another website, service or application this Privacy Policy does not apply to those third-party websites, services or applications. Such third-party links are subject to that third-party’s own rules and policies.

Who we share your data with

No one.

How long we keep your data

We keep your comments and their metadata indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments.

When using the contact form to ask about a sales item, your name, email address and shipping address will be kept on file until the transaction is successfully concluded.

What rights you have over your data

If you have left comments, you can request an exported file of the personal data held about you. You may also ask that any personal data held about you be erased.

Your contact information

Will not be disclosed without your permission or sold to third parties. It’s between you and me and my lip is zipped.
