Data Privacy

Your privacy is very important to us. Please read our Privacy Policy carefully to get a clear understanding of how we collect, use, protect or otherwise handle your personal information.

  • We don’t ask you for personal information unless we  truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your  gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
  • We don’t share your personal information with anyone  except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
  • We don’t store personal information on our servers  unless required for the on-going operation of our site.
  • We don’t sell or share any of your personal  information.


Under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and related laws, we have a legal duty to protect the personal information we collect from you. GDPR says that ‘personal data’ is any information relating to a living individual who can be identified, either directly or indirectly, from that information. This could include your name, email address, postal address or telephone number, or information collected online and used to identify you.
