Cookies are used for generic information storage and are not really used in this site other than say to provide non-intrusive and non-user targeted ads. Users are free to block any cookies or information that specifically identifies them. Any client or server side code is accessible to inspect that I am not using any tricks to obtain user data. User privacy is important, I would not like to be tracked, spied, or tricked so I treat others with the same respect.
I do keep logs of users who access information but I use it as metric to determine my audience and how to better distribute content, available here.
Should there be something you think is erronous or mishandled, please feel free to send me an email at joedoe47 at gmail dot com.
