Felice Stevens has created this Privacy policy in order to be in compliance with the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation).

I want you to know that I take your privacy seriously.

Felice Stevens is the author, owner and manger of the website www.felicestevens.com and this associated newsletter. My newsletter is managed through Mailerlite.
