Thank you for reading thus far…

It is hoped you enjoyed reading the https://theroncouture.com/wp website privacy manifesto. It is certain that lawyers, contract officers, AI Deep Learning Algorithms, Browser Bots both government and private, that wonderful person in HR that collects stamps and wants to give everybody raises, and various individuals who like to read privacy notices to put their children to sleep, should all be satisfied with this information dump. If the simple, longwinded, yet concise explanations of what a user is, what a comment is, what an author mailing list is, what a cookie is, what an SSL is, and how these are all used is scary or feels overly invasive to you, please feel free to leave the site, only to return when you personally feel safe to do so. I’ll totally understand and won’t be offended in the slightest.

All The Best
Theron Couture
