Your privacy is something that I respect and is important. However, we live in a different world now and it seems like everything around is collecting our data. Here’s what I can tell you about my site:
Information that you voluntarily submit
I don’t do any kind of newsletter subscription and don’t anticipate that I ever will so there’s no collection and compiling of personal information for that purpose.
However, if you use the contact form or submit a comment through the website then there is a small amount of data collected such as name and email address.
Like many site operators, DIYTileGuy.com collects information that your browser sends whenever you visit the Site (“Log Data”).
