Who we are

Our website address is: (Keto without the fluff) is a sub page for us at Why Not DIY? LLC. Why Not DIY?, LLC is a group who is set on finding ways to just do things ourselves. In today’s world it is rare to find people doing things for themselves, it is far to easy to just pay someone else to do it.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it


When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection. These logs are kept on our secure site to help keep the spammers and scammers down. If there is one thing I hate most, it is people trying to take advantage of other people. I also use affiliate links to help pay to keep things running and give me incentive to keep posting. Anything you may click that we have linked has been vetted and generally trustworthy (I cannot say the same for links in comments, be advised) The intent of most things linked are either for research/information or to get me paid. Clicking links is your own choice and I will not be held responsible nor can I vouch for what data the links collect (you can find this out by visiting their about me sections).

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website. I am not sure if there will be any reason to upload images but if there is a time when you can share a photo, please make sure you remove the geo-tags that may be on it (mostly from phone photos) or use a VPN when you take said photos.

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.

How we protect your data

We try to maintain the SSL license to maintain a Secure domain. Only administrators of the site have access to any data stored. Each administrator is required to have 2FA and randomly generated passwords changed every 60 days. We also run multiple plugins for security, spam protection and virus detection… Our site may be slower because of it, but it is worthwhile.
