SELFDISTRO DIGITAL ’s Privacy Commitment
We ask for only the least amount of information necessary, gathering only what we believe is essential for doing
business, or for the specific transaction at hand.
The goal of this policy is to make explicit the information we gather, how we will use it, and how we will not. This
policy is unfortunately longer than we would like, but we must unambiguously address all the relevant cases. We will
try and keep the language simple and direct as much as possible.
