Note: This Privacy Policy page was created as a direct result of participation in the Google Adsense Program and acceptance of changes of February 26, 2008 to their Terms of Service (TOS).. with the helpful aid of using a modified copy of a generic privacy policy script found at JenSense which was brought to my attention by Chris Whiteley via a discussion on BlogCatalog.
