I, Hunter Hogan, own and do most of the work on this website, HunterThinks.com. As of 5 April 2018, the website is on a virtual server with a Linux operating system. The web-server software is Apache. WordPress.org software and various plugins manage most content.
When you access HunterThinks.com, your action could create one or more log entries in software controlled by HunterThinks.com, one or more cookies served by HunterThinks.com, and/or pass data to one or more third-party services used by HunterThinks.com.
Some logs, cookies, or third-party services might have information about you. Some of that information might be stored by HunterThinks.com. Within the limits of the laws of humans and the laws of physics, I can do whatever the fuck I want with that information.
Since I made this website in 2001, my most common action has been to ignore, then delete, the information. But you should assume that I might become a dickhead like Google, Equifax, Facebook, the US government, or nearly every other government, and use the information to be an asshole: always within the limits of the law, of course.
