Privacy Policy for

The privacy of my readers is extremely important to me.

I also recognize that the privacy of your personal information is important to you too. Below you’ll find information on what types of personal information I receive and collect when you use and visit this site and how I safeguard your information.

Post Comments
If you decide to do me the great honor of leaving a comment on one (or more 😉 ) of the posts, I ask for your email address during the process. Your email address isn’t displayed and will never be revealed to anyone, without your express permission.

On the subject of Commenting…. This site was designed as a ‘Safe Haven’ for anyone suffering from ANY of the issues associated with a reduced self-confidence, or low self-esteem. If you don’t agree with my opinions in a post, I welcome your opinion in the comments. However, un-helpful, or derogatory comments in reply to another reader’s comments will not be tolerated and your comment will be removed! It’s fine to have an alternative opinion, it’s not fine to be nasty. (Sorry, rant over!)
