Privacy Policy

Who we are

Our website address is:

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Actually, we try to collect as little as possible. We do use an analytics plugin that tells us how many web page visits, and how many unique IP addresses, visit us each month.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Contact forms


If you have an account and you log in to this site (and only site administrators will have a login to this site), we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article (again, only site administrators will be able to do this), an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Meetings have locations specified, and those link to


Who we share your data with

We use SlimStat Analytics, which keeps a large amount of anonymized data about connections to this web site. We do not share this data with any third party.

Meetings do have locations specified, and those link to – the retrieval of the map does inform Google where the request came from.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue. However, comments are turned off for this site.

For users that register on our website (again – this is administrators, only), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

Our SlimStat Analytics data is kept for 32 days.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service. Except, we don’t allow comments.

Your contact information

Additional information

How we protect your data

We try to collect as little information as we can, in the first place. We don’t need it; we’re an anonymity based organization in the first place.

What data breach procedures we have in place

We don’t have any data breach procedures in place, since we try to not collect any personally identifiable information in the first place.

What third parties we receive data from

SlimStat Analytics retrieves geo- IP information, so that your connection to us can be identified as to where it comes from.

What automated decision making and/or profiling we do with user data

Too many invalid logins to the administration panel of this web site will be put in a time-out list.

Industry regulatory disclosure requirements

I don’t think A.A. qualifies as an industry (and Higher Power help us, if we do), so I doubt we have any industry regulatory disclosure requirements. We can’t lose what we don’t have – so as long as we don’t collect your information, we’re good.
