    Here's my privacy policy [].

    (to save you clicking the link)...
    "The Aardvark Privacy Policy

    To put it bluntly -- any information you submit through this site
    is held in total confidence unless otherwise stated.

    Aardvark has built a strong reputation for protecting the information submitted
    and collected. I have a total anti-spam, anti UCE policy -- never, never, never
    will your email address be made available to any third party without your
    expressed permission and never, never, never will I send you unsolicited

    That's it ... plain and simple -- Your secrets are safe with me!

    What's more -- Aardvark doesn't routinely collect information from its
    users. Apart from the Google Ads, this site is a cookie-free zone --
    I probably know nothing at all about you anyway!

    Here's a whole bunch of stuff about Google's cookie and privacy policy that
    You might find interesting and which I'm supposed to include in this
    privacy statement as part of my position as an AdSense user

    If you've got a problem or a query about this then contact me, you can even do it
    anonymously but in that case don't expect a reply (how could I?). "

    It's short, to the point and covers all the bases, doesn't it?

    What's so hard about coming up with a concise, no-nonsense privacy policy?
