I (Philip/Photochirp.com) am a very private person and treat others with the same respect. I would never disclose your personal information to third parties or spam you.
Submission of personal information is not required to view this website.
You should however be aware that Google and I record data for statistical purposes. Any data collected is not personally identifiable; every computer on the internet has an IP address and it can be used to identify country, state and city but not your home address. I analyse this data as a means to keep my content current and relevant.
As a means to help pay for server costs and make a bit of extra income, I participate in various advertising programmes. I’ve carefully chosen respectable companies. These companies do not mail me for information regarding my users, and I do not share any personal information you have provided to me in emails or in person. The products I recommend buying are generally products I have bought myself. Affiliate linking does not increase the cost of your purchase.
Photochirp.com will eventually be my business website in addition to what it is now–somewhat of a weblog. When I have finished coding everything, I will disable advertisements on the business section of my website (currently unavailable.)

Generally speaking, opting out of interest-based advertising does not prevent advertisements showing up completely, but it does prevent customised advertisements that rely on cookies as a means to function.
As a means to stay honest towards people viewing my website, I have created a list of the items I have not paid for or bought at a discounted price:
These are still good products unless stated otherwise, but honesty is important to me. I am extremely grateful to the companies that have been kind enough to donate or discount these items.
