This is done to find out the number of visitors to the various parts of the site. This information is only processed in a way which does not identify anyone. No attempt is made to find out the identities of those visiting my website. If I did want to collect personally identifiable information through my website, I will be up front about it. I would make it clear when I collect personal information and will explain what I intend to do with it.

WordPress requires visitors that want to post a comment to enter a name and email address. Where you have chosen a password in order to make comments on my website you must keep the password confidential and not share it with anyone.
