Contact forms

If and when I use contact forms, I will be requesting your name, email address. I will also be requesting you to submit the reason you are reaching out to me. This helps me to answer your query without considering it as spam.

All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
