Squaring the Culture




"...and I will make justice the plumb line, and righteousness the level;
then hail will sweep away the refuge of lies,
and the waters will overflow the secret place."
Isaiah 28:17

Privacy Policy

Like all commercial websites, Plumb Bob Blog needs to know who its audience is for advertising and administrative purposes. At the same time, we understand that our users value their privacy. This policy is designed to balance your right to be left alone with our desire for certain basic data about your computer system.

Log Files

If you don’t comment, the information we collect will be limited to your general Internet settings or “log file.” Log files typically include your operating system, your ISP and IP address, the type of browser you’re using, the resolution of your monitor, and the pages on our site that you clicked through while visiting.

Comments and E-mails

Plumb Bob Blog will not record your e-mail address unless (a) you post comments on our site, or (b) you send us e-mail.

If you post comments, you must provide us with a valid e-mail address. We won’t share it with anyone (except our contractors and under certain extraordinary circumstances described below, under “Disclosure”), but we may block you from commenting or visiting from that address if you violate our terms of use.

Plumb Bob Blog retains most of the messages it receives, so your address likely will remain on record in our e-mail archives. These archives may be stored on servers owned and operated by third parties such as Google Inc.

Cookies

Plumb Bob Blog may use cookies to record your log file and, if you’ve registered for comments, to remember your Plumb Bob Blog login and password for you. We may also grant permission to our advertisers to use cookies in their ads. Cookies are small text files placed automatically on your hard drive by your web browser when you visit certain websites in order to make those sites easier to use. You can configure your browser to disable cookies and/or to alert you when new ones are being sent, but please note that some features of our site might not work properly if you do so.

Disclosure

Plumb Bob Blog generally will not disclose information we have collected from your log file except to our contractors and in the aggregate, as part of demographic analyses to help advertisers or other third parties better understand our audience (e.g., “70% of our users use Internet Explorer”). However, we may disclose information about your individual log file or, if you’ve commented or sent us email, your e-mail address in the following two extraordinary circumstances: (a) if we believe in good faith that we are required to do so by law, or to comply with a court order or judicial proceeding; or (b) if we believe in good faith that such disclosure is necessary to defend the legal rights and interests of Plumb Bob Blog, or its owners or individual contributors; or (c) if we believe in good faith that such disclosure is necessary to protect the site’s infrastructure (for example, to investigate denial of service attacks.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, if you send us an e-mail message, Plumb Bob Blog will assume that you consent to your message – including your e-mail address – being reprinted in full on our website should we deem it worthy of publication. If you do not consent to your e-mail being made public, please say so in your message.

Threatening communications

Notwithstanding any of the foregoing provisions, Plumb Bob Blog reserves the right to collect, disclose, and publicize personal information about anyone who sends a threatening communication, in any format or by any medium, to Plumb Bob Blog, or any of its owners, officers, directors, employees, independent contractors, affiliates, or agents. Plumb Bob Blog will not honor requests for privacy attached to such communications.
