Terms of Service

NOTE: Like many small business owners, I've been struggling to figure out what I need to do in order to comply with laws written far from me by a government not my own. While the claimed intent of protecting privacy has obvious merit, this burden is unrealistic for micro businesses to comply with, and many writers like me fall into the "micro business" category.

I will have updated terms here soon.
