We collect anonymous statistics about your visit, like which of our pages you viewed. If you use some 3rd party services like Google or Facebook, they may know you visited this website. We can’t control how they use this data but we don’t believe this knowledge poses any threat to you.
If you sign up with us we take great care to keep your information safe and we’ll never share it with others without your express permission.
We never share your data with 3rd parties except to help us deliver our own services.
These are just the key points. If you need detail, keep reading.
