Privacy

Short version

  • I collect anonymous statistics about your visit, like which of my pages you viewed
  • Some 3rd parties like Facebook and Twitter may know you visited this website, if you use their services. I can’t control them but I don’t believe this knowledge poses any threat to you
  • I never share your data with 3rd parties except to help me deliver my own services.

These are just the key points. If you need detail, keep reading.

Measuring my visitors

I measure visitors to my website using Google Analytics. This records what pages you view within my site, how you arrived at my site and some basic information about your computer. All of that information is anonymous – so I don’t know who you are; just that somebody visited my site.

The information I collect from analytics helps me understand what parts of my sites are doing well, how people arrive to my site and so on. Like most websites, I use this information to make my website better.

You can learn more about Google Analytics or opt out if you wish.

Other social networks

These services provide social buttons and similar features which we use on our website – such as the “Like” and “Tweet” buttons.

To do so I embed code that they provide. To function their buttons generally know if you’re logged in; for example Twitter uses this to say “x of your friends retweet this”. I do not have any access to that information, nor can I control how those networks use it.

Social networks therefore could know that you’re viewing this website, if you use their services (that isn’t to say they do, but their policies may change without notice). As our website is remarkably inoffensive we imagine this is not a concern for most users.

Security

This site takes many precautions to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of your personal information. These precautions include:

  • Use of SSL encryption for sensitive data
  • Hardware stored in secured datacentres behind firewalls
  • All access to information restricted by password and/or secure key
  • Restrictions to what information can be accessed via any location

Whilst I take great care to ensure any confidential information remains protected we cannot guarantee the security of data sent over the Internet.
