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.

Oh, and the 'fun' part with this policy is the fact that you can leave a comment (question, remark, complaint, or anything else) if you like. Of course I will answer your comments :).
