Privacy Policy

About This Site

Gravitysmith.com is primarily a personal page devoted to describing things about me, and passing on a few bits of wisdom I may have accidentally picked up along the way. Started in the year 2004, it serves as a way for me to keep in touch with friends and family as well as make new acquaintances over the web. Perhaps most of all, these pages help satisfy my desires to experiment and learn about the wonderful internet and it helps keep me aware of current web technologies.

At the same time, it can not be emphasized enough that your privacy is very important to me. There is nothing I personally hate worse than spam, and I will never use or release your information for any solicitation purposes. My belief is to take a least-invasive approach to collecting and dealing with data. It is for this reason that gravitysmith.com makes minimal use of cookies or many other technologies which have the potential to contain personally identifiable information.

I invite you to contact me if you have questions about this policy. To do so, please send e-mail to webmaster@gravitysmith.com and I will respond shortly.
