Your privacy is very important to me. On Blushing Rose Diaries I have a few fundamental principles that I follow:

  • I don’t ask you for personal information unless I truly need it. (I can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
  • I don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law or protect my rights.
  • I don’t store personal information on my server unless required for the on-going operation of my website.
