I respect the privacy of everyone who visits this website. As a result I would like to inform you regarding the way I would use your personal data. I recommend you to read this Privacy Policy so that you understand our approach towards the use of your personal data.

Information I Collect & How I Use It

I do not make money from ads. So I don’t collect data in order to advertise to you directly. The tracking I do at my website is to make my website work as well as possible. So, to give you the best possible experience in visiting my website, I collect information from your interactions with my website. Some of this information, my website collects based on actions you take while visiting the website, such as what pages you view (including how much of a given page and for how long). This information includes records of those interactions, your Internet Protocol address, information about your device (such as device or browser type), and referral information (how you got to a particular page).

I use this information to:

Data Storage

I use third-party vendors and hosting partners, such as Linode, for hardware, software, networking, storage, and related technology I need to run the website. I maintain server log (like most internet servers, my website automatically records each request made when someone visits my website; this server log may include your web request, IP address, browser type, browser language, the date and time of your request, and one or more cookies that may uniquely identify your browser; I will delete all server logs after 30 days or earlier). By visiting my website, you authorize me to transfer, store, and use your information in the United States and any other country where I operate.

Third-Party Embeds

Some of the content that you see displayed on my website is not hosted by me. These “embeds” are hosted by a third-party and embedded in a page, so that it appears to be part of that page. For example: YouTube or Vimeo videos, Disques posts, SoundCloud audio files, Twitter tweets, GitHub code snippets, etc. These files send data to the hosted site just as if you were visiting that site directly (for example, when you load a post page with a YouTube video embedded in it, that video appears because of a pointer to files hosted by YouTube, and in turn YouTube receives data about your activity, such as your IP address and how much of the video you watch). I do not control what data third parties collect in cases like this, or what they ultimately do with it. So, third-party embeds on my website are not covered by this Privacy Policy. They are covered by the privacy policy of the third-party service (so, when you watch a YouTube video embedded in a post, the use of data about your interactions with the video would be covered by YouTube’s privacy policy). Some embeds may ask you for personal information, such as submitting your email address, through a form linked to from a post. I do my best to keep bad actors off of my website. However, if you choose to submit your information to a third party this way, I don’t know what they may do with it. As explained above, their actions are not covered by this Privacy Policy. So, please be careful when you see embedded forms on my website asking for your email address or any other personal information. Make sure you understand who you are submitting your information to and what they say they plan to do with it. I suggest that you do not submit your email address or other personal information to any third-party through an embedded form.

Data Security

I use encryption (HTTPS/TLS) to protect data transmitted to and from my website. However, no data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure, so I can’t guarantee security. You use the website at your own risk.

“Do Not Track” signal

Please note that my website does not alter data collection and uses practices when my website gets a Do Not Track signal from your browser.

I use cookies or similar technologies to analyze trends, administer and track users’ movements during your visit to my website, and gather information about you, where you access my website.

A cookie is a small piece of data that a website asks your browser to store on your computer or mobile device. The cookie allows the website to “remember” your actions or preferences over time. Most Internet browsers support cookies; however, users can set their browsers to decline certain types of cookies or specific cookies. Further, users can delete cookies at any time.

Why do I use cookies?

I can use cookies to learn how you interact with my content and to improve your experience when visiting my website(s). For example, some cookies remember your language or preferences so that you do not have to repeatedly make these choices when you visit one of my websites. Additionally, cookies allow me to serve you specific content, such as videos on my website(s).

How to Control Cookies

Most web browsers automatically accept cookies but provide controls that allow you to block or delete them. For example, in most modern browsers, you can block or delete cookies by clicking Settings > Privacy > Cookies. Instructions for blocking or deleting cookies in other browsers may be available in each browser’s privacy or help documentation.

Certain features of website depend on cookies. Please be aware that if you choose to block cookies, you may not be able to use those features, and preferences that are dependent on cookies may be lost. If you choose to delete cookies, settings and preferences controlled by those cookies will be deleted and may need to be recreated.

I may amend this Cookie Policy from time-to-time. When I make updates, changes or revisions, they will be effective when we post the updated Cookie Policy to my site.
