The data we collect is used to improve our products and services or to contact you directly about them.
We collect the bare minimum of what we need and we aim to be 100% transparent about it.
Information Collected Automatically
Most modern web browsers share some information with the webservers so that the right content can be served to you.
For example, your browser will “tell” the server whether you are browsing from a desktop or a mobile device and the webserver will use this information to display the desktop website or the mobile website accordingly.
This information including your browser type, IP address, language preference, time and date of access, operating system and the like is logged on the server in a protected log file hidden from the outside world.
This information along with anonymous log information is stored in your browser as cookies and will be transmitted to Google Analytics and used to create aggregate data for statistical analysis.
This anonymous aggregate data is used to improve our products and services.
None of the information collected will be used either directly or indirectly (through third party vendors) to track or collect personally identifiable information or pick out individual computers or users.
The only personally identifiable information we will have is the one you provide us voluntarily.
Most modern browsers will let you disable cookies and enable tracking protection and we will always respect these preferences and pick third party vendors that do the same.
You can also opt out of Google Analytics using the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on.
We ask for your name and email when you leave a comment on one of the articles.
We might contact you directly on this email to answer to your comment if we think that the matter is better if discussed privately. We will never send newsletters or unsolicited emails to your email.
We will ask you for basic information when you create an account. This will include your username and email address and other basic information as necessary.
Passwords that you provide or the ones automatically generated are not stored anywhere. These passwords are encrypted using industry standard one-way encryption and cannot be read even during a data breach.
This information will be used for the sole purpose of making and maintaining your account.
