General Site Information

Privacy Policy

Your privacy is very important to me. I collect certain non-identifying information from all visitors to this site for statistical reasons. I will keep any information you choose to disclose to me indefinitely, including your name, email, or physical address, but will never share or disclose your private information to any 3rd party under any circumstances.

If you would like your information expunged from my records for any reason, just let me know.

If you have made a purchase on this site, you may have created an account with your purchase. Within this account, I have records of what you have purchased from me under the name and email address associated with the account you used to place that purchase. You may request that I remove your account at any time. Removal of your account will also remove any entitlement to future upgrades or updates of books or software, but will not remove your active license for software purchases.

Refund Policy

I provide 100% refunds with no questions asked on books and software purchased from this web site within 7 days of the purchase, and a 50% refund with no questions asked until 21 days after the purchase.

Licenses

License for all my plug-ins are sold on two models: a Standard License, good for one year of updates and support and a Permanent License, which entitles you to updates and support for the life time of the plug-in. Either license can be used on any number of sites.

Prior to November 29th, 2014, I sold licenses on a single-site/multi-site model with permanent updates and support. Those licenses are honored according to the terms at the time they were sold, although any purchaser may request to be shifted to the new model at any time.

Security

If you believe you have identified a security issue in one of my plug-ins, in a theme, or on my web site, please contact me privately through my web site contact form so that I can investigate, confirm, and fix the issue before it is disclosed publicly. Thank you!

Comment Policy

Comments on this website are expected to be topical, relevant, and polite. I reserve the right to remove comments from publication if I perceive them to be in violation of any of these principles. Any comments containing "hate speech" or information of an explicitly adult nature will be deleted immediately. Irrelevant comments may be deleted at my prerogative. I am very fond of any comment which furthers the discussion: I’m less fond of comments which don’t contribute.

Certain specific activities are also grounds for deletion:

  • Link dropping — as defined by me.
  • Use of keywords in place of your name. It’s called the name field for a reason.
  • Being a dick. This is the "Don’t be a dick" policy. It’s self explanatory.

What I will do in these situations varies. Hate speech and explicitly adult comments will be deleted outright. Using keywords in place of your name means that I will remove your link if the comment is still appropriate.

This comment policy may be revised at any time without notice.

Contributing Articles

I don’t accept any externally contributed articles. Any email offering to contribute an article will be deleted unread.

Advertising

I don’t accept any advertising in any form. Any email offering advertising opportunities will be deleted unread.
