1.0 Our Philosophy

  • User privacy and data protection are human rights

  • Data is a liability. It should only be collected and processed when absolutely necessary
  • We hate spam just as much as you do!
  • We will never sell, rent or otherwise distribute or make public your personal information

Like a lot of websites, this site uses analytics to see user interactions. We use this data to monitor the number of people using our site, to help to understand how they find and use our web pages, and to see their journey through the website.
