Cookie Policy

A nearly “cookieless” experience — when you visit this website

Like many website owners, I automatically collect technical information, such as your browser or the type of device you’re using, your operating system and IP address.

On January 23, 2023, I started using Fathom Analytics instead of Google Analytics.

I want to process as little personal information as possible when you use this website. That’s why I chose Fathom Analytics for website analytics, which doesn’t use cookies and complies with the GDPR, ePrivacy (including PECR), COPPA and CCPA. Using this privacy-friendly website analytics software, your IP address is only briefly processed, and we (running this website) have no way of identifying you. As per the CCPA, your personal information is de-identified. You can read more about this on Fathom Analytics 4‘ website.

The purpose of us using this software is to understand our website traffic in the most privacy-friendly way possible so that we can continually improve our website and business. The lawful basis as per the GDPR is “Article 6(1)(f); where our legitimate interests are to improve our website and business continually.” As per the explanation, no personal data is stored over time.

All information about website visitor is anonymized and visitors’ privacy is respected.

I collect information about your visit to this website, including the length of your visit and the pages you visited.

When I check this data, I do not see the personal identities of site visitors. I use this information to fix bugs and improve the experience of all visitors.
