Privacy and Terms of Use for JeffLindsay.com

Privacy
Your privacy will be respected. That means I won’t sell your email or other data to others. I won’t send you spam. If I send you something as a follow-up to previous communication but you don’t want any more discussion or information from me, let me know and I’ll strive to respect your wishes.  I don’t send out much email–actually, my real problem is that I don’t send out enough, as in not answering some of the numerous emails I get. I try, but it’s a bit overwhelming and some worthy questions fall through the cracks.

If you send me unsolicited emails with comments and questions, including content relevant to my writings here or elsewhere, I may reserve the right to quote from the email or paraphrase it but will not share your email address and will obscure your identity. For example, if your name is D. Trump and you send me an email making some objection to a point I make (e.g., something crazy like “shouldn’t we stop helping the folks who are bombing civilians in Yemen?”), if I find it interesting, I may update the relevant webpage or post with something where I abbreviate your name like this:  “A certain Mr. T. called me an idiot because….” This gets trickier if your name actually is Mr. T., in which case I apologize if I accidentally reveal your identity. Let me know if your think I’ve improperly shared something you sent unsolicited and I’ll strive to resolve any problems.

Cookies
I am not a fan of cookies, but apparently my WordPress theme uses cookies (Avada by Themeforest as of May 2018, though I may eventually change to a lighter theme) . But I don’t knowingly do anything with them.

Your Bank Account Information
No, it’s not safe with me. For all I know, Homeland Security reads my email and pokes around everything I’ve got (not to mention the authorities and hackers in some other countries), so please don’t send me anything super sensitive like your bank account info. I don’t want it.  If you get an email that looks like it’s me asking for your bank information or asking you to wire money, it’s probably not me. Probably not even my wife. Ignore it. Even if it says I’m being held in a Bulgarian prison with terrible decor and greasy food and says that I can’t go until you wire $10,000 to the Bulgarian Ministry of Justice in, say, Nigeria. Keep your cash. Even if it’s true, Bulgarian food isn’t that bad. Delete the email and move on.

Terms of Use
I’m delighted that you managed to wander over to this site, and hope you’ll come back. I even hope you’ll leave a comment or too if you have something to share. But I also ask you to be civil, which means no profanity, no links to p0rnography, no spam, no racial slurs, etc. Feel free to link to this site or any of the pages or posts in it. But don’t hotlink to my photos unless you have my permission. Unless you have my express written permission, don’t copy and reuse my photos, large chunks of text, or any other current or future creative contributions. Altering my photos, especially to obscure the “JeffLindsay.com” that often marks them, is of course strictly verboten.  But because I’m a pretty reasonable and generous guy, you can freely borrow up to 10 pixels from any photo, once max per photo, and use them any way you want. Those pixels are on me. Enjoy!

Please respect my intellectual property rights. I don’t like people reproducing my content or displaying my content in frames as if it is on their site.
