Privacy Policy

My privacy statement

There are a lots of news headlines all across the world at the moment concerning users’ privacy, data leaks and even ‘honest companies’ bending the rules and selling mass amounts of user data. I’ve decided to take a stand on this and only measure what I need to keep the website up and running.

My interest in visitor data is minimal. I wanted a solution where I could find out the following:

  1. The number of pages viewed
  2. Which pages were viewed
  3. How long people spent on the pages
  4. Where people came from to view the pages (referrals)

Therefore, I’ve decided to remove Google Analytics from my website and installed Fathom Analytics, who have a really robust user (and privacy first) data policy. They also comply with all GDPR rules, which all protect consumer privacy online. Fathom also doesn’t use cookies to store any information and anonymises users with a complex series of hashes.

Sometimes I use embedded content from other websites…

Which means that some embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.) behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website, and this will mean that you may be leaving your data fingerprint on these websites. However, I’ve tried to minimise this wherever possible.
