Personally, I have taken a number of steps to try and maintain my own privacy where possible. So I think I would be remiss if I didn’t try and do the same for those who decide they want to come and read the content that I put out on this site.
Plus, it’s actually the law within the EU.
With all of the above in mind, I want to do what I can to maintain the privacy of visitors to this site wherever possible. So what do I do to help ensure your privacy is maintained?
The TL;DR is that there are no analytics on this site. You can read more about that here if you’re interested.
No tracking cookies will be dropped on to your machine from this website, which means there is no unique ID that I can use to identify and track you.
You can also use an online tool like Cookie Metrix to see what cookies are stored on your machine when you visit my site.
Spoiler – there are no cookies! :-)
I maintain a very basic newsletter where I send a monthly roundup of the posts I’ve published that month. If you’re interested, you can find out more here
Also, every newsletter issue I send contains an unsubscribe link that actually works. If you click it, you will be unsubscribed and you won’t receive any more newsletters from me.
