The shorter version:

Your privacy is very important to me. I’m sort of a privacy nut myself. I’ll never sell, rent, or lease your personal information to third parties.

However, I may disclose your information to third parties I trust—I’ll make sure that they also take privacy seriously. Such third parties specialize in a specific task that would rather be impossible for me to handle. An example of such groups is an email service provider.

The information of users of this site is almost always used in aggregate form. It’s basically used to answer the question, “So, how is this site doing?” If you ask me, that’s just about it, really.

You can contact me if you have any questions or suggestions regarding this Privacy Policy.

For the longer “formal” version, please continue reading.


I highly respect your privacy. I care about how your personal information is collected, stored, used, and shared.

I will never sell, rent, or lease your personal information to third parties.

This Privacy Policy explains how Fine Mortal “FM” uses your personal information you provide it with.

This Privacy Policy may be updated from time to time.
