Let's Talk About Privacy!
On this website there are no ads or third-party trackers, but I do use analytics software called Matomo.
Matomo is hosted on the same server as this website, which means none of the data it collects ever leaves my control.
What Data I Collect
I use Matomo to learn how visitors like you use my site. My goal is to use this data to improve my site.
The data I collect is very basic. It includes the following:
- The IP address you're connecting to my site from. (After 6 hours this is anonymized.1)
- The pages on my site you visit and which links on those pages you click on.
- The browser you're using. (e.g. Chrome or Firefox)
- The type of device you're using. (e.g. phone or desktop)
- The approximate location you're visiting my site from (e.g. Texas or England)
There are multiple ways for you to opt out!
- Uncheck the box below.2
- Enable the Do Not Track setting in your browser.
- Use a blocker like uBlock Origin.
- Every 6 hours a script on my server removes the last two octets from every IP address in my server's log before it is compressed and archived. For example, "172.16.24.5" becomes "172.16.xxx.xxx".
- Unchecking this box will set a cookie on your device which tells Matomo not to track anything at all about your visits to my site.
