Privacy Policy

Bernard respects our visitors' privacy.  We collect only the minimum information that we need in order to provide our services to you.  Here's the lowdown on how we look after our visitors' privacy.

Plain English

For those of us who don't enjoy reading legalese...

In short, we only collect those bits of your personal information that we need in order to provide our services to you.

We will never spam you, nor will we share your personal information with anyone.  Ever.

When I set up this site, I asked myself what privacy policy rules I would be prepared to accept.  Then I wrote this policy in alignment with that: if I wouldn't accept it myself, why should I expect you to accept it?   I will not ask you to sign up for anything that I wouldn't sign up for myself.
