This website is in the process of activating Facebook Pixel, which can be used to serve you ads on your social media based on your browsing behavior. Pixel also allows me to tweak my advertising to make sure only those who are interested in my products. Like Google Analytics, Facebook Pixel does not provide me with any individual information or data. All I see is group data and trends. If you want to opt out of Facebook ads, visit http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ to manage the companies allowed to show you advertising. This is individually required for each browser.

Simple Membership Plug-in
This website uses the Simple Membership Plug-in for WordPress, which allows me to selectively protect pages, posts, or articles so that only those who join can see and interact with them. This decreases the likelihood of plagiarism and prevents spam via the comments section. At this time, all memberships are free, and no credit card information is required. If you want to learn more about the Simple Membership Plug-in, you can visit their website here: https://simple-membership-plugin.com/
