Use of this Website

If you use this website, you agree to this privacy policy. We reserve the right to update the policy at anytime without notice. You also agree to the website terms and conditions.

Who we are

Our website address is:

MJ Logan is a Pen Name I usually write under because my real name is so common. For a while, another Michael Williams lived two blocks away on the same street with the same house number. The only difference  in our addresses was East and West. We used to swap misdelivered mail every week.

I am a freelance writer and author who also builds websites for small businesses.


Comments on pages and posts are turned off on this site. You’re welcome to drop me an email or send me a message on twitter or facebook. See the About MJ Logan Page for details


Cookies are delicious. We all love them. Except the ones that invade our space and our privacy to follow us around like a puppy gobbling up the dropped treats on our way home. Those we don’t like. The only cookies found on this site are necessary for functionality. I don’t track you, follow you, figure out where you live, or who you know. I don’t even want to know.

BTW, My preference is oatmeal with raisins, craisins, and chopped pecans. The digital ones don’t taste very good at all.

Embedded content from other websites

I avoid using embedded content because doing so allows sites like YouTube to add inedible cookies that let them follow you around the web. So if that creepy ad you’ve been seeing pops up after you visited this website, it didn’t happen here.

Data We Collect

We collect as little data as possible. However, there are times when we do collect some data. If you send a message through a website form, we may collect any or all of the following:

  • Your email address
  • IP Address
  • Name

Addtionally, if you become a client or potential client, I may also collect social media account information (to use only while working for you.) and your real name, address, phone number, and website information.

Who we share your data with

In a nutshell, we don’t share data with anyone. Period.

However, if you use social media to contact me, you will be sharing your information with the platform or platforms used.

If you have privacy concerns with those platforms, then use the form on the About MJ Logan page.

How long we retain your data

When you visit a website, any website, information like your IP address, type of browser, and where you came from gets added to the server logs. The amount of back and forth communication that takes place between a server and client is mind boggling.

The information is there, but don’t ask me to find it. About once a year, I might have reason to look at a log to determine, for instance, what went wrong. Logs get deleted about once a year. When the server does a backup, the log files end up in the backup, but I never keep more than three months worth of backups once a website is up, running, and functional.

What rights you have over your data

I don’t keep any data, especially not yours. As mentioned above, the backup system goes back about three months. Anything older than that gets deleted. I won’t save it for you, retrieve it, or look at it, even if you offer me cookies.

Where your data is sent

It goes into the trash can, metaphorically speaking, when I delete the log files. I never give it to anyone and every three months it gets deleted.

Where your data is stored

I only use U.S. based servers. Your data, as far as I know, never leaves the USA.


I don’t collect any data unless you give it to me for business reasons. I don’t share your data with anyone except under special circumstances at your direction. The only records of your visit to this website are in the server logs and no one wants to look at those, especially not me. They get deleted at least once a year. Server backups are deleted no later than every three months.
