Privacy Policy is a personal blog intended to provide entertainment, information, and education about personal investing.

Your privacy is important to us. Prepare2FIRE may collect your email and contact information as provided by you. The information is used to send you the site’s related content only and will not be sold or otherwise distributed to others. Likewise, the owner of Prepare2FIRE will not sell or otherwise distribute your information to others. You may request to have yourself removed from the email list at any time.

In addition, this website may use cookies (as may WordPress or its applications) which collect information.  You may disable cookies at any time on your own computer.  Prepare2FIRE and its owner make no effort to collect or retain information gained through cookies. You should check the cookie policies of the various websites and applications on this site, including WordPress, for further information and disclosures.

When you 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, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
