Privacy Policy for Blog About Crafts

I’ve never felt the need to post a Privacy Policy on Blog About Crafts. After all, I don’t sell anything here and I don’t have a newsletter. And besides, I know I’m not going to use and or abuse the email of anyone leaving a comment – I suspect many bloggers and commenters have not really given it much thought as it just seems so against what blogging is all about.

But, we live in a litigious society and well, if I want to keep participating in a certain contextual advertising program I have little choice. So, rather than try to get the static page feature to work and otherwise make a bunch of changes to this site I thought I would create a post on this topic and put it in its own category. (I have no clue how I did it before and quite frankly don’t have the time to fuss with this – wow, has it really been since 2006 that I’ve had this blog?) This way it can be easily found by anyone who may be looking and I keep my advertiser happy. Anyway, here it is…
