Your privacy IS critically important to me

Like most website operators, Calm Carl collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Calm Carl's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Calm Carl's visitors use the website. From time to time, Calm Carl may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of the website.
Calm Carl also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on any of the Website's pages. Calm Carl only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Calm Carl's websites choose to interact with Calm Carl in ways that require Calm Carl to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Calm Carl gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, you can use your Facebook account to leave comments and the Facebook integration will ask you to log-in with your account credentials.
The security of your Personal Information is important to me, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. While I strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, I cannot guarantee its absolute security.
Links To External Sites
I have no control over, and assume no responsibility for the content, privacy policies or practices of any third party sites, products or services.
Calm Carl may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its website. Calm Carl may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Calm Carl does not disclose your personally-identifying information.
To enrich and perfect your online experience, Calm Carl uses "Cookies", similar technologies and services provided by others to display personalized content and store your preferences on your computer.
The Long and the Short of it
None of the software that I've created to operate this website stores your information. I do integrate with facebook for the 'like' and 'comment' features, which of course means Facebook cookies get created so they can track you. I also use Google Analytics (so I know how successful my content is) and Google Custom Search Engine (so I don't need to create my own search engine for the website) - and God knows what Google might get up to with that data.
Facebook and Google, I don't personally think they're to be trusted - but I don't think we have a great deal of choice on the Internet as things stand; you of course do have a choice, and at least you know exactly where this site stands. I do hope you continue to browse and enjoy the content.
Oh, yeah, I have a link to PayPal for Donations too; you know. Just in case...
