Welcome to the Tracking Policy, sometimes also referred to as a Privacy (
invasion) Policy. These are often tucked away on websites, extremely long and full of legaleese.
This was until the EU came up with thing called GDPR which meant you should be relatively upfront about all the things you do to people and their data when they visit your site.
Time will tell what difference this will make to the wider world.
Who I am
I am a individual who pays for this blog from my own pocket. There are no advertisements here nor do I take money from anyone for any ad real estate or endorsements. I avoid talking about my day job on here specifically because all view are my own and sometimes don’t represent the views of my employers.
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
I use a WordPress plugin for my contact form which creates an email which is sent to me. I don’t share these details with anyone unless you ask me to (I’m trying to get in contact with your brother!) and destroy the original email once it’s no longer required. The plugin does not log messages and deletes your email address after one day.
Embedded content from other websites
Posts on this site may include embedded content (e.g. YouTube videos, Twitter embeds, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
I am in the process of removing all of my embedded content and replacing with screen shots so that this website can be tracker free.
I use a WordPress plugin to do some very basic analytics and altered the settings to not track IP address or location based on IP address or any other personal data. My web server does track your IP address if you visit this site – which I don’t seem able to change. I can assure you I have no interest in trying to ‘do’ anything with it.
I used to use Google Analytics but binned it off because Google are Surveillance Capitalists.
Who we share your data with
The extremely limited data I might have about you (IP address) is never shared with anyone for any reason.
