This is my personal website. My posts and ideas do not reflect opinions of my current or previous employers.

Privacy Policy

I use your information only for providing and improving this site. By using this site, you agree to the collection and use of information in accordance with this policy.

Below is an inexhaustive list of data I may collect and how it is collected.

Collected only upon your request Collected automatically (this data is typically provided by devices and browsers automatically)
Personally-identifying information
  • Your name or email address (e.g., when submitting a comment)
  • IP address
  • Device ID or fingerprint
Non-personally-identifying information
  • N/A
  • Browser settings (e.g, browser type, browser language, installed fonts, display size, etc…)

Use of Information

I do not share personal information with third parties, nor do I store any information about your visit to this site, other than to analyze and optimize your content and reading experience through the use of cookies. By using my website and agreeing to this policy, you consent to my use of cookies in accordance with the terms of this policy. See the Analytics section below.

Links to other websites

I may provide links to websites that are owned or operated by other companies or invidiuals. When you use a link to visit another website, you will be subject to that website’s privacy policy and security practices. I do not control these websites and cannot be held responsible for their content. I am not responsible for republished content from this blog on other blogs or websites without my permission.

Opt-out

You can turn off the use of cookies at anytime by changing your specific browser settings, or by opting out below. See the Analytics section below.

Analytics

I use Matomo for analytics. Users should be aware of a few things:

  • Learn what Matomo is by clicking here.
  • The Matomo (website) privacy policy is located here, while the Matomo (application) privacy information is located here.
  • I only use your information to determine what posts are more popular, what day/time is best to post, how long you stay on my site, etc…
  • I host my own Matomo instance. Your data never leaves my server without my permission.
  • My Matomo instance is set to fully support your browser’s Do Not Track setting.
  • Matomo uses JavaScript for the tracking tag. Because of this, you can use NoScript or Ghostery to block JavaScript on my site (this might make some pages display/behave in unintended ways).
  • Matomo offers two options for geo-location: your browser’s language setting or your IP address (provided by an external database). For accuracy’s sake, I’ve opted to determine location based on IP address. This information is provided through a database by MaxMind called GeoLite City. This provides your coarse location (city/state/country).
  • If you’d like, you can choose to receive an opt-out cookie from Matomo, below.

Security Policy

Now that the legal text is out of the way, here’s the part I really enjoy. I’m always working to make ensure my site is more robust and secure. When you visit my site, the following security/privacy features will be available to you.

Shameless plug: I’m a fan of the EFF and the work they do to help protect freedom online. Consider joining!
