Privacy Policy, Terms & Conditions


The only information I retain is a) email we might exchange, and b) your comments, and any information you’ve entered as part of that comment.

If you sign up for the newsletter, the only information retained by my mailing list service provider is your email address, your name (if provided), the date and time of your subscription, and the IP address from which you subscribed.

I value your privacy, and I don’t share email addresses or personal information with any third party without your explicit prior permission. The only exception would be the acquisition, merger, or sale in bankruptcy of Puget Sound Software, LLC.

It is not our intention to collect personal information from anyone under 13 years of age. If you are under 13, you may not enter information on this Web site, but must have a parent do so for you. Otherwise, we must have express written permission from a parent or guardian before you may use this site.

We may use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit our website. These companies may use information (not including your name, address, email address, or telephone number) about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you.

Google, as a third-party vendor, uses cookies to serve ads on your site. Google’s use of the DART cookie enables it to serve ads to your users based on their visit to your sites and other sites on the Internet. Users may opt out of the use of the DART cookie by visiting the Google ad and content network privacy policy page.

We use Google Analytics to analyze our website traffic.

We may also use other third-party companies to serve ads and collect non-personally identifiable information (e.g., the pages you visit, and which links you click, which ads you see and click on, and the categories of search terms you enter) when you visit our web site. These companies may use the information outlined above (which does not include your name, address, email address or telephone number) about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. These companies often use a cookie or third-party web beacon to collect this information.

Posted Comments

By posting a comment you grant Leo A. Notenboom and his parent company Puget Sound Software, LLC, the unrestricted right to publish or reuse that comment in other forms, including but not limited to other publications and websites.

I may remove any comment at any time for any reason. Normally, this is so I can remove “comment spam” or other inappropriate posts, but ultimately I retain the right to remove anything at any time for any reason.

Comments, by their nature, are immediately and publicly visible to all – comments are not private.

Do not post information you consider to be private in nature.

I can assume no liability for statements made in comments, or any offense that might be taken by readers of those comments. I can not review the accuracy of comments. I do my best to remove inappropriate comments, but I cannot warrant that I’ll remove them all, remove them in a timely manner, or agree on what might be found “offensive” by everyone.
