“People have really gotten comfortable not only sharing more information and different kinds, but more openly
and with more people. That social norm is just something that has evolved over time.... But we
viewed that as a really important thing, to always keep a beginner’s mind and what
would we do if we were starting the company now and we decided that
these would be the social norms now and we just went for it.”


Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg

Welcome to ‘FacelessBook’

Respect for privacy is a moral value

Unlike Mark Zuckerberg, we don’t think our readers are so many “dumb f---s.” This is why we set a firm privacy policy from the outset and inform you explicitly of what information we collect, in what circumstances, and what you can do if you don’t want us to have that. After all, we value our privacy; therefore, the principle of moral reciprocity demands that we respect the privacy of others.

A no-privacy policy?

What you won’t find here: a “no-privacy” policy.

Jurisdiction and covenant

By using this site, you agree to read and comply with the following privacy policy, which was last modified on the date shown in the upper right corner of this page. We reserve the right to change our policy at any time; when we do so, the changes will appear on this page. All terms defined below are governed by the laws of the State of California, save where those laws conflict with the federal laws of the United States of America, in which case the latter shall take precedence.

Severability

If any provision of this Privacy Policy shall be found to be in conflict with applicable law or unenforceable, the remaining provisions shall remain in effect. Should a provision be found in accordance with applicable laws and enforceable after the exclusion of one or more clauses, that provision shall be read and enforced as if it did not contain the clauses.

Third-party links

This site does not control the behavior or policies of third-party websites that may be reached via external links on our pages. Use such links at your own risk, with the understanding that this site shall be indemnified and held harmless in the event of any harm to your computer or other problems encountered in using sites to which we link. We also advise reading the privacy policies, terms of service and other legal notices that may appear on such sites, which may differ from our own, and familiarize yourself with what you are expected to know in using such sites; we cannot, however, guarantee that such sites will post, observe and follow any such policies.

Information collected by this site

Information, in this context, falls into two categories: personally identifying and otherwise. This applies as much on the internet as anywhere else, although the architecture of the internet makes the problem of controlling the dissemination of such information more critical there than elsewhere.

Personally identifiable information (PII)

At present, we collect only one form of PII: your email address, and that only if you communicate with us via our Contact Us page. Even there, you have the option to supply any address you like; you may even enter a false address, although this will make it impossible for us to reply.

Potential PII

Through our webhost, we collect IP numbers on all visitors. Under certain conditions, and with the cooperation of a visitor's internet service provider (ISP), this information can be used to identify an individual visitor.

Barring legal compulsion, we will never release this information to any third party without your consent. Internally, we may use it to block access to our site by violators of our Terms of Service, or to restrict such violators from posting comments.

Generic information

Along with IP numbers, our web host's visitor statistics service also compiles the following data on all visitors:

Cookies

This site uses cookies to gather statistical information on its visitors, as specified above. If you wish to delete them, follow the applicable instructions for cookie management in your browser. You can also set your browser to decline cookies entirely, or to request site-by-site or even page-by-page confirmation as you navigate the web; how this is done varies from browser to browser. Refusing cookies will not alter the behavior of this site, although this is subject to change as comments modules and social media plug-ins are added; check this page for updates.

Our pledge

This is a non-commercial, not-for-profit, advertising-free website. (Look over the pages. Do you see any ads?) Our only source of funds, other than from the pockets of our staff, is voluntary donations from our visitors. We have no ties to any commercial enterprise, nor are we either affiliates or sponsors of any commercial site.

For this reason, we collect a minimum of potential PII, and no more statistical information than is typically provided by web hosts’ built-in statistical services, most of which is collected in the aggregate and not tied to any individual visitor or ISP. We have no reason to release any of this information to any third party not already privy to it by virtue of standing upstream from us in the statistical data collection process, and we will not disclose any information about our visitors (PII or not) to any third party except as compelled by a court order or equivalent legal duress.
