I value privacy, and that includes yours and my own.
This is what I would have liked to say:
I will not use your information for anything at all besides the usual statistics which Yoast and other plugins and analytics provide me with. I LOVE statistics and thus would like to see whether more people from the East, West, North or South honor me with a visit.
