Privacy Policy

The website is owned and operated by Valley Programming, LLC, of Simpsonville, Kentucky ( This page describes the Privacy Policy for the website. Please see the Terms and Conditions page for additional information.

Basic statement

In regards to (formerly known as, we don’t attempt to track you in any way, shape, or form. In general we’re just glad you came to visit, and hope you’ll come back again. Basic Nginx and Apache log files are kept on our servers for 30 days. We only look at them if we think there is something suspicious going on.

That being said, we do use advertising partners who have different policies, so please see the “Advertisers” section below for their details.

2024 Update: As of March, 2024, this website now uses a company named Ezoic to serve the ads you see on this website. Here’s a link to the Ezoic Privacy Policy.

Cookies and data


In March 22, 2020, this website was converted to serve static web pages, and therefore this site — — does not need cookies to operate. (Prior to then, this site ran on Drupal, which did use cookies.)

Except for the “book ads,” which are created with JavaScript, all of the pages you see are statically generated, meaning that they are plain text files on the server. When you look at a web page, it’s almost exactly the same as looking at an HTML file on a hard drive. (Please see the “caveats” section below for our partners, who do use cookies.)


The static files just mentioned are served by a web server, and that server writes log files when people access web pages. As mentioned previously, the only times we ever look at those log files are when we’re trying to resolve a technical problem on the website. Historically, that means that we look at those files maybe ten times a year, probably less, and again, it’s only to troubleshoot problems and suspicious activity (people attempting to hack the website).

Three “tracking” caveats

Now, beyond what is “tracked” by, which is basically the nothingness described above, there are three caveats that need to be shared.

Caveat 1: Google Analytics

As mentioned earlier, this site now uses Ezoic to serve the advertisements you see, and Ezoic is a Google Adsense Partner. From using the Ezoic tools, it appears that this means that they may use Google Analytics as part of their process.

Therefore, if you are interested in the information Google accesses and retains, please see this Google page, or search for something like “Google Analytics privacy policy,” which, at the time of this writing, only seems to find their “help” pages.

Caveat 2: Advertisers

As mentioned above, this site now uses Ezoic for the ads you see, so as the second caveat, please see the Ezoic Privacy Policy for their details.

Caveat 3: Links to Amazon

A final caveat is that when we link to products on Amazon, we use their “Affiliate” tools to create the links. The way this works is that by being an “Amazon affiliate,” when we look at a product on they have a little tool that makes it easy for us to create a shortened link to that product page. We then use that link on this website, and if someone clicks on the link and buys that product on Amazon, we get paid a small amount for “referring” that person to Amazon.

Specifically in regards to links to, Amazon requires that we state, “As an Amazon Associate I — Valley Programming, LLC — earn from qualifying purchases.”
