Before you read the legal copy below, I will summarize. I do not ever, no never, sell or share your personal information with anyone. I use basic data on Google Analytics to see how many users are visiting my site, when, and where from. This helps me to see if I am doing things that are in the best interest of my visitors.
If you email me, I do not, ever ever ever, share your personal information with anyone, ever.
Thank you! Now, go ahead and read the legal mumbo jumbo below if you like. 🙂
