Privacy Policy

Reading privacy policies sucks. We all hate it, probably even the lawyers. But privacy itself is a tremendously important thing, so we have put together this short and sweet document to cover how we handle it. At Diamond Mind Web Design, we put an extremely high value on our own privacy, and you can rest assured that we do the same for you. Read on to determine exactly what kind of information you’re giving us when you visit our website, why we collect it, and how we use it and keep it secure. (P.S. It will only take about one minute!)
