What personal data we collect and why we collect it

We use your information only for providing and improving this site.


As of 2023-08-22, we use Matomo for analytics. Visitors to our site should be aware of a few things:

  • We only use your information to determine what posts are more popular, what day/time is best to post, how long you stay on our site, etc…
  • Matomo collects minimal data by design. The instance we use (hosted by only collects:
    • Page URL
    • HTTP Referer
    • Browser (derived from the User-Agent HTTP header)
    • Operating system (derived from the User-Agent HTTP header)
    • Device type
    • Visitor Country (after the geolocation lookup is completed, your IP is discarded and is never stored in their database or logs)
  • Matomo uses JavaScript for the tracking tag. Because of this, you can use uBlock Origin, NoScript, or Ghostery to block JavaScript on our site (this might make some pages display/behave in unintended ways).
  • This instance also respects the Do-Not-Track header if you configure your browser to send it.
  • Matomo is open source with their code available on GitHub.


If there’s anything else you’d like to know about how we use your information or the security of this site, please contact us.
