Privacy Policy

Atomic Tango PrivacyWho we are

We’re Atomic Tango LLC, and our website address is: (Like we needed to tell you that.)

What personal data we collect and why


If you leave comments on our site (which we love!), we collect the data you entered in the comments form (obviously), and also your IP address and browser user agent string. The purpose? Spam detection. Like most websites, we get lots and lots of spam, and not the tasty kind.

In addition, 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 will appear to the public in the context of your comment.

Contact forms

When you contact us, you need to provide an email address so that we can respond. We do not share, sell, or use email addresses for any reason other than to respond to you. We also delete all contact form submissions after we respond.


This site uses cookies — not the addictive variety pushed by Girl Scouts (we wish). Rather, it places a tiny bit of code (a cookie) in your browser so that the site recognizes you should you visit again in the future. It also helps us see how you’re using our site, so we can make the site even better. Note that this cookie contains no personal data. Or chocolate chips.

You may choose to block cookies, in which case this site is still completely viewable. It just won’t remember you should you return.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from another website behaves in the exact same way as if you had visited that other site. That means that content may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged into that website.


In addition to WordPress analytics, we use Google Analytics. All information is anonymous. If you do not wish our analytics services to track your behavior on this site, simply block cookies.

Who we share your data with

No one.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, your comment and its metadata (like your IP address) are retained indefinitely.

If you wish to have your comment removed, please contact us.

If you are under 18, please do not leave a comment without parental permission.
