Privacy and Cookie Policy

Well, every website seems to have a need for a privacy and cookie policy nowadays. It has it good sides of course, but I am not that skilled enough to make a lawyer tight policy. Although I even hardly control (besides the statistics) any part on this blog, I can give some information on a variety of topics. I try to be as clear and easy as possible. Keep in mind that this will probably apply to many more Blogger based blogs also.
