Privacy statement

Why a privacy statement?

Never thought that as a bicycle mechanic you should have a privacy statement. Bicyclists are stubborn and anti-authoritarian, but I'll comply with all formal blabla. Whatever you say. Privacy Statement? No problem. On the internet you will find several (free and paid) automatic generators of privacy statements. This is from Free of charge.
