Nearly 4 years to the day, I've finally drafted something.
I'd appreciate any feedback. IANAL, and I realize most (all)
out here won't be either, but if you see anything glaringly wrong
with it, let me know.

I started by trying to use a free "privacy policy generator",
and it was basically useless for my purposes here. :-D

My goal ended up being both discussion of privacy to users visiting
the website, and interacting with the project as a whole (via email,
mailing lists, etc.), as well as to briefly mention the fact that
the Tux Paint software _itself_ doesn't actually transmit anything,
let alone personal information. (I'm going to double-check with the
folks working on the Android version to confirm the accuracy of my
statement regarding its download capabilities.)

Thanks in advance!
