Privacy, Disclaimer & Site Policies


Lif Strand has created this website


I am the legal copyright holder of all the materials on this blog unless otherwise noted. This means you can’t publish or reprint my blog content without my written consent.


Everything on this site is my opinion unless otherwise specified. My opinion  — meaning you might not agree. That’s fine. This is my blog so I can say what I want to say about whatever I feel like.  Here’s what I believe:  No one is required to believe, choose or act in any way other than he or she wills. No one else is responsible for the beliefs, choices or actions any human takes but that human alone. 

The content of this blog is not to be considered legal, medical, magical, or any other kind of advice. What you read here is not in any way intended to be a substitute for professional advice of any kind. Read at your own risk. 

My opinions evolve over time as I learn and experience new things. Early information and opinions I have expressed may not reflect current opinions. That’s just normal human nature. The alternative to growth and change is death. I’m not there yet.


Comments that are rude, spam, or porn, that include religious or political ranting, anything involving animal or human abuse, or whatever else bothers me, will not be approved. Given that this is my blog, I reserve the right to not publish your comments. I also reserve the right to delete them after they’ve been published.


When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help 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 service privacy policy is available here: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website, as long as credit is given.


If you leave a comment on our 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 visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.


Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


I can’t speak for WordPress, but I won’t share your data with anybody. I will not sell any personal or contact information I receive on my blog to another company. However, since any comments a reader makes that I approve are public and can be seen by others, the content of comments is the responsibility of the person who submits the comment.


If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.


If you have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.


Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
