The Quick Version
I take your privacy very seriously, as seriously as I take my own. As such, I want to assure you that I will use information collected for no purposes other than providing service to you. I also strive to not collect any more information on you than I need for fulfilling orders, sending opted-in newsletter subscriptions, or sending accepted email contact.
I will never give or share the information collected with outside parties and I will never send you spam. All subscriptions to my newsletter are done on an opt-in basis, meaning you must confirm you want to receive it to get it.
