If you have questions, requests for deletion, or any other queries regarding your privacy as you use my website, please contact me at [[email protected]](mailto:[email protected]). ## Obsidian Publish This site is hosted on [Obsidian Publish](https://publish.obsidian.md/). Obsidian Publish does not do any data collection according to their policies. ## Cloudflare This domain is proxied through [Cloudflare](https://www.cloudflare.com/). This means that Cloudflare collects logs about the traffic going to this website, but those logs are aggregated and anonymized, purely for the purpose of improving the performance of the website. For the avoidance of doubt, I do not use [Cloudflare Web Analytics](https://www.cloudflare.com/web-analytics/) on this website. ## Google Analytics I use [Google Analytics](https://analytics.google.com/) to understand how users use the website, navigate through the content, and subscribe to the newsletter. This allows me to improve the website's content, understand pain points in navigating the site, and make a more compelling newsletter. I do not collect or link any personally identifiable information, including the email collected for the newsletter to this traffic. My use case requires only aggregated and anonymized data and not any specific user's activity. All of the following have been done to ensure that we protect privacy as much as possible: - Google Signals measurement is disabled - Google Ad Personalization is disabled - Restricted Data Processing is enabled - URL Passthrough is disabled - Data Sharing is disabled except for sharing anonymized statistics with Google Search Console, to improve the discoverability of my website. [Consent mode](https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/9976101?hl=en) is activated in the website. For users in the European Union, consent is opt-in, while consent is opt-out for the rest of the world. Data is retained for a period of 14 months, to ensure that I can understand the trends in seasonality and be able to provide good content at the right time. ## Google Adsense I use [Google Adsense](https://adsense.google.com) to serve ads on this website. There is no sharing between Google Analytics and Google Adsense, so ads will only be based on Google's data, and not any data that you provide to me in the course of using my website. ## Buttondown Email I use [Buttondown Email](https://buttondown.email/) as my email provider for sending my regular newsletter. If you subscribe on the forms in the website, then I collect your e-mail address for the purpose of sending you newsletter updates as I write them. I use tracking on opens and clicks on the e-mails in order to improve my content and deliver more useful and relevant content to subscribers. I will not use the newsletter for advertising or targeting, nor will I share your e-mail with any third-parties.
