Your privacy is important. I respect it and comply with international privacy laws and regulations.
Below is a whole lot of legal talk to explain what goes on with your data. It’s really important to know, but it’s as thrilling as a stale sandwich. Sorry. Don’t blame me. I’d rather be writing a kick-ass fantasy adventure. I’m sure you’d rather read one too. Well, too bad. Brace yourself for a ride into a land of cookies with no flavour, pixels without colour and other interwebby oddities. So, if you thought you’d find a dastardly plan to corrupt the foundations of existence and take over the world with your data, you’ve picked the wrong guy. I don’t have the time, money or the know-how to do anything unscrupulous with your data. You’re safe with me. Or as it will say in legalese below… we and us. We and Us wish I had a crew working for me. We’d be like the A-team, or X-force, or some other association of cool cats linked by a single letter of the alphabet.
