Privacy Policy

Short Version

By signing up for the newsletter, you said you’d like to hear from me when there’s a new blog post, I’ve made a major update to an existing blog post, or I have news about one of my open source projects.

Thank you. I’m flattered.

Your name and email address will not be traded or shared with, or sold to any other company. The exception is MailChimp which I’m using the manage and send the newsletters. And they make the same promise.

If you’ve changed your mind or feel the Joan’s Work newsletter is nothing but clutter, here’s the unsubscribe link.
