Information regarding this site and its vendors

This site and its owner do NOT store your personal information in any way. However, the site does use certain externally hosted services, each of which has its own privacy policies and methods of complying with applicable privacy regulations.

Notes about external services

Cloudflare

This site’s traffic goes through Cloudflare and is configured to use its Web Analytics tool, which Cloudflare claims doesn’t track individual users and doesn’t leave cookies.

Fathom Analytics

This site uses Fathom Analytics, which does not store your personal data in any way. Please refer also to my article, “Fathom Analytics: count on it.”

Google Fonts

When I learned that the use of Google Fonts served from Google will transmit a visitor’s apparently not anonymized IP address1 to Google, I quit using this product (and suggesting to others that they use it) and, instead, served from my own site any typefaces that aren’t part of the so-called “system fonts stack.”

Twitter

This site quotes tweets in the form of purely static text (with, obviously, no tracking involved), rather than embeds of any kind.

YouTube

This site uses lite-youtube-embed to provide YouTube embeds that respect your privacy. For details concerning how this works, see Sia Karamalegos’s article, “Faster YouTube embeds in Eleventy,” on which this site’s related templating is based.
