Privacy policy

I value your privacy and try to limit my impact on it as much as possible. There are a few important things you should now when you visit this blog

  • Analytics through Matomo
    If you run a blog it's nice to see how many people are visiting and which pages are popular. In a nutshell that is all I care about. With that in mind I opted to use an installation of Matomo collecting data in a database on my own server. That means I own the analytics data that is collected through this blog. Said analytics data is anonymized before it is saved. I have setup Matomo to respect the 'Do not Track' setting.

  • Comments through
    I hope the content on this blog is of some help or inspiration to people. With that in mind it is nice to engage with users about the blog topics. For that purpose I have implemented commenting software by This is a lightweight and privacy focused commenting widget. You can login using familiar services or create a private account.

    "Commento has not, does not, and will not gather your personal information to sell to advertisers, third-party trackers, or other organisations."

Regarding your privacy this is all you should know when reading this blog. I try to focus on engaging content and interesting discussions, not on tracking users across the interwebs and trying to make them click on an ad. Have fun reading!
