Privacy Policy

Who we are

Our website addresses are: and

Our privacy policy is very simple.

First, the only information we will ever ask you for is an email address if you wish to subscribe to one of our newsletters. We don’t even ask for your name.

We will never give, sell or make your email address available to anyone for any purpose at any price. That’s been our policy since we began in 1996 and it will remain that way.

We believe that to do differently without your permission would be violation of your privacy and would never be a part of it.

We do sell ebooks through, a third-party company. You can find their Privacy Policy here.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it


The only information you need to provide in order to receive one of our newsletters is your email address. We only send out our email newsletters to subscribers and never unsolicited material. Occasionally we will recommend products or services in our newsletters or on our website fir which we may or may not be an affiliate. We may receive a small commission at no cost to you if you choose to purchase a recommended product or service.

You may unsubscribe from our newsletters at any time by clicking on the UNSUBSCRIBE link at the bottom of any of our newsletters or by contacting us at andrea @ stretcher dot com.


Occasionally we enable comments on certain articles. When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

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.
