WHAT INFORMATION I COLLECT ON THIS SITE:
The server logs of my webhoster automatically collect information, such as your IP address, your browser type and language, and the date and time of your visit. My webhoster gives me the possibility to check these logs. So far I haven't. I might, though, in the future.
I one day might assign your computer one or more cookies which may collect information to facilitate access to my Site and to personalize your online experience. I don't do that at the moment.
I one day might use standard Internet tools, such as web beacons and cookies, which collect information that tracks your use of my Site and enables me to customise my services and advertisements. I don't do that at the moment and I also don't have any ads on my Site.
I collect information that can identify you ("personal information"), such as your name and email address or any other information that you freely supply to me, for example by sending me a message, e-mail me, sign up for my newsletter or order a record. I use the info for getting in touch with you, as requested.
