Privacy Policy

Privacy is a fundamental human right.

I am committed to protecting the privacy of visitors to my website, This privacy statement explains what information collect about the users of my website and what I do with that information.

How I collect data about visitors to my website—

The data I collect about website users:

  • When you browse my website through use of analytics tools.
  • When you consentually send messages to me through the contact forms on my site.

This data will be collected regardless of browser, device, or app used to access my website.

What data I collect about visits to my website—

When you visit my website, the website may use cookies, server logs, and other methods to collect the following data:

  • What pages you visit.
  • What actions you take on my website.
  • What browser, operating system, and device you use.
  • Your anonymized IP address: I anonymize the last 2 bytes of your IP, e.g.
  • Voluntarily-submitted information you share with me through the contact forms available on my website.

I use this data to:

  • Optimize my website, so that it is quick and easy to use.
  • Defend my website from abuse and technical attacks.
  • Compile statistics on the popularity of a webpage, post, topic, etc..
  • Compile statistics on the kinds of computers, devices, and software visitors use to ensure accessibility and ease of use.
  • Respond to inquiries regarding my professional services.

I retain raw data such as page visits, anonymized visitor IPs, and visitor actions for 365 days. I host aggregate data about the use of my website indefinitely, but those statistics do not include data identifiable to you personally. Information you freely share with me through contact forms will be retained for my personal records indefinitely—it is up to you what information you feel comfortable sharing.

I use Matomo, an analytics service, to collect some of the data highlighted above. You can opt-out of some website tracking I do using the form below. If you run ad-blocking or have the "Do Not Track (DNT)" setting enabled on your browser, you may not already be included in data collection via Matomo and therefore may not need to complete the opt-out form. Limited data may still be collected after opting out, but this data contains no personally-identifiable information.

You may choose to prevent this website from aggregating and analyzing the actions you take here. Doing so will protect your privacy, but will also prevent the owner from learning from your actions and creating a better experience for you and other users.

Who I share your data with (TLDR; no one*)—

I don’t share any personally identifying information publicly or with third-parties, *except when required to by law.

Links to other websites—

My website may link to external sites that are not operated by me. Please be aware that I have no control over the content and practices of these sites, and cannot accept responsibility or liability for their respective privacy policies.
