Privacy Policy

Short version: This blog does not track you.

Long version: This blog respects user privacy and does not track any personally identifiable information (PII) and does not use any cookies to track users. This is just a blog, not a social media app. You should be able to read it without sacrificing your personal privacy and I make every effort as a developer to respect that privacy.

Site analytics are captured via Plausible, which does not use cookies, does not track personal information, and does not use any kind of persistent identifier. For example, visiting this site once and then returning the next day, or using two different devices will be attributed as two distinct users, with no means of associating the two users are actually the same person. Plausible is fully GDPR and CCPA-compliant. I actually pay directly for Plausible because of its privacy-first design and avoid free services like Google Analytics which share user information with third parties or advertisers, even though it would be cheaper for me to do so.

These analytics are used to measure interest in particular blog posts and overall site performance. They are not used for advertisements or individual user tracking. This site is not intended to make money, it is not monetized, and it does not abuse user privacy for financial benefit. I also personally hate popups and will do everything in my power to make this site protect your privacy and avoid keeping user information such that it does not need a permission prompt in the first place.
