Privacy Policy

We here at Okay in the Mess hate spam as much as you do. Well, the advertising kind. (Ben finds fried Spam to be a wonderful treat.) But to that end, we will never sell or distribute your email address if you choose to give it to us. Also, Katie promises to never let Ben sneak Spam into the cart when shopping, but that’s a different sort of pledge. For more legalese information on the finer points of our privacy policy, please read on.
