Nothing really.

What Evelyn does with what collects


Evelyn has disabled Comments on most posts.  If you do find a post or page to Comment on, whatever you enter into the form will be either published or trashed.  If you are a bot or spammer, your entry will definitely be trashed.

Evelyn has absolutely no interest in selling, distributing or leasing your personal information to third parties, even if you give her permission.  Why in the world would she want to do that anyway?

Seriously, who wants all that hassle?  Not Evelyn.

Probably the only time your information will be used is if Evelyn was to contact you for whatever reason.  You really wouldn’t leave your contact info if you didn’t want to leave a way for her to reach you, would you?


Evelyn and are pretty much dependent on her webhost for the security of whatever is on, or goes through, this website.  For the webhost’s terms and policies, please visit their website.

What are cookies?

A cookie is a small file which supposedly asks permission to be placed on your computer’s hard drive. Cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual, as opposed to a generic web surfer.

You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can set your browser to decline cookies. This may prevent you from viewing certain websites in all their glory, but not so the website.  Isn’t it nice that is plain with no bells and whistles?

Evelyn is clueless as to how exactly her website uses cookies so don’t even bother asking her.  The website is put together using WordPress.  So, however WordPress and its widgets handle cookies would be how handles cookies.  Simple, eh?
