Privacy Policy

What I Do With Your Data

I didn’t spend as long as I have on Startizer, go through whatever, just to get your email and sell it, rent it, etc, etc, same with your personal data. Other things, so apparently I am using cookies to enrich your browsing experience, cos when my cookies kick in, it’s foot massages, scented oil, and peeled grapes all round. You’ll be put on lists you want to be on, won’t be put on things you don’t. If you want to know what information is collected, just ask. If you want to be taken off, of course, no problem.

And to cover my a**e once more, when you get a chance do read this privacy policy. But sheesh, you must be going through some rotten luck to get a chance like that. Ok, seriously, read Privacy Policy.
