Privacy policy

Privacy policy

Privacy matters but it can be confusing. This page explains my approach to privacy and how it affects you.

Short version

These are just the key points. If you need detail, keep reading.

Measuring the visitors

I measure visitors to my website using Posthog. This records what pages you view within my site, how you arrived at my site and some basic information about your computer.

The information I collect from Posthog helps me understand what parts of my sites are doing well, how people arrive at my site and so on. Like most websites, I use this information to make the website better.

Discussion comments

To allow visitors to discuss my blog articles and some web pages, I use a discussion system based on Github issues called Utterances.

I embed the code that Utterances provide and I cannot control it. Nonetheless, on their website they say: No tracking, no ads, always free.

To be able to comment, you need to register an account on Github.

Of course, all comments you leave are also publicly visible on the Internet alongside your Github username, so I do not imagine this is a concern for many people.

Previously I used a comment system called Disqus, but I imported all the comments to the new system. If you wish to remove your comment, please contact me and I will delete it.

If you sign up for the newsletter

When you sign up for my newsletter, I will record specific personal information about you, such as your name and email address.

You can opt-out of any of this communication at any time.

I will never provide your personal information or email address to any third parties except where they are specifically employed to help deliver my service, as detailed above.

Updates to this policy

I may update this privacy policy from time to time, particularly as technology changes. You can always check this page for the latest version. I may also notify you of changes to our privacy policy by email.

Any questions?

If you have any questions about this privacy policy or your data, please contact me.
