Privacy Policy

Who we are

We are a software agency located in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota, USA. Our website address, on which you are probably reading this, is


Through most of this site, commenting is not enabled. Where it is, 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.


If you upload images to this or any website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included, unless the website itself scrubs this information from uploaded images. Visitors to any website can download and extract any location data that is present in images visible on the website.


We use WordPress default cookie management. What this means:

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.

Embedded content from other websites

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 it were viewed on 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. For further details on any specific embedded content, we recommend checking the originating site, which is usually clearly understandable from the embed itself. Examples include embedded YouTube videos, which carry recognizable branding in the video itself, and Google forms, which are clearly labeled within the form.

Who we share your data with

We share visitor data only as required by law or technical constraint.

Login security

If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email. (If you receive more than one password reset email that you did not request, please let us know so that we can take preventative action.)

How long we retain your data

As of this writing, we do not have profile creation or commenting enabled. If this changes and 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 while retaining the same profile). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or 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.

Where your data is sent

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