Privacy

I’m Kerry, author of this blog, Crazy Messy Glorious. I know that privacy and data security is important to my readers and that’s why I try to collect as little personal information about you as I possibly can. I don’t personally use any analytics tools to track your visit and I don’t maintain any mailing list. Still, there are some things of which you should be aware.

I do not manage, process or store any of the data collected. I believe, in good faith, that the third parties providing the services that I use follow ethical, standard industry practices.
