The Edwards Edition is not a money-making venture. We do not, ourselves, collect information for the purpose of monetizing our reader base. That said, we do make use of various services to run the site, which all have their own privacy concerns you should know about:


The site itself is built with and hosted by Ghost. This open-source website-building system focuses on blogs, magazines, and newsletters. Ghost handles both the site itself and the email system delivering A Running Commentary to subscribers. Ghost themselves do not track ordinary visitors to this site. What does get tracked involves "members" i.e. the people who subscribe to A Running Commentary. When you sign up, you provide a name and email address. Ghost collects that, your general location (what state or country you're in), and the time and date you create your account, and passes all that information on to me. They also let me know if you open emails sent through the newsletter system or not. I keep this information to myself; I do not pass on subscriber identities to anyone else (unless I am legally compelled to, I suppose, though that hasn't come up).

The database of Curations that I link to from each A Running Commentary newsletter is hosted on Notion. If you follow the link at the end of each newsletter or click "Curations" in the top menu, then you're subject to Notion's privacy terms. I don't see anything about visitors to those pages.
