Personally identifying information sent via the Contact form is used only for direct email replies. I post review comments from FaceBook and email but with the identifying personal information removed.

Information that does not identify you

I may collect information about Users whenever they interact with my Site which does not identify them. Non-personal identification information may include the browser name, the type of computer and technical information about users means of connection to my site. This is through the natural process of using site stat metric plug-ins, as is normal.
