The privacy of visitors to The Finance Buff is important to us.
At The Finance Buff, we recognize that privacy of your personal information is important.

We never sell your personal information to third parties.
The WordPress blog software we use requires an e-mail address when you add a comment to a blog post. It does not have to be a real e-mail address unless you’d like to use the “notify me of followup comments via e-mail” feature. Please use [email protected] if you’d rather not enter your real e-mail address. Whether you enter your real e-mail address or not, the email address will not be published. We do not use your e-mail address for marketing or disclose your e-mail address to any third party unless required by law.
When you subscribe to new posts and our newsletter by e-mail, or when you contact us using the contact form, we can see your e-mail address. Like the e-mail address entered in comments, we do not use your e-mail address for marketing or disclose your e-mail address to any third party unless required by law.
