Privacy

I believe privacy is a fundamental human right.

Before going down, I want to emphasize that I don’t collect your personal information. Even if I do I don’t share your personal information with anyone. There are certain things which can be shared with the third party anonymously for eg. If you comment on the blog I have to share comment data with Akismet for spam detection.
