If only we could keep things simple but this world is complex, so feel free to take a nap as you read through the rest of these legal mumbo jumbo pages.
We send emails to the people who voluntarily sign up for our newsletter/email notifications. We only send them if you sign up and you can unsubscribe anytime you want. There’s always a link at the bottom of every email to do so…just keep scrolling down and click on Unsubscribe.
We ask for some basic information (like your name and email) when you choose to leave a comment here on our website.
We don’t sit around at night staring at your email and name, then sell it to pimply hackers who eat way too many cheesy-fingered chips. Gross. I have absolutely ZERO interest in collecting your data, let alone giving it or selling it to other people – I have waaay too much of the world to explore before I waste my time on that. The only thing I keep track of is your name and your email address. That’s it and no one else will ever see that information.
If at any time you want me to remove your information, I will be happy to do so. Just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Do me a favor and when you have insomnia, come to this page of my website and it will put you in a deep sleep.
