This privacy policy explains the collection of personal data during the use of HTML pages served under the domain

As the developer of, I try to respect your privacy as much as possible. You do not need to expose any personal data to access Personal data are not collected nor asked for. This website does not embeds ads, trackers, social media plugins, and is served without the use of first-party cookies.

However, this website is hosted on servers operated by GitLab, and your web browser quite likely shares lots of data with GitLab’s web servers, most notably your IP address, but also other technical information like canvas fingerprinting, which can be used to uniquely track you. GitLab explains their use of such data in their privacy policy.

Additionally, some pages on this website contain embedded external web resources, such as style sheets, JavaScript, fonts, images, and videos. Loading this content should be assumed to behave as if you had visited the origin website. These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking services. Your web browser can also share its characteristics (fingerprinting) with their origin servers as well.

Depending on your jurisdiction, your internet service provider (ISP), or when browsing from a cellular network you phone carrier, may be required by law or misguided by monetary incentives to record your IP addresses and browsing behavior. On top of that, thanks to the Snowden revelations, we know that most US and international intelligence services collect all Internet data that they can acquire, including our browsing behavior and metadata associated with your internet and cellular activities.

The good news is that you do not need to be identifiably tracked in some or all of the above ways by employing open source tools or best practices designed to protect your privacy and security.

If you do not want to be tracked when browsing the web in general, you need to learn and apply techniques for digital self-defense, for example by educating yourself and applying best practices like those documented on the Electronic Frontier Foundation Privacy Blog. Many privacy enhancing tools are available as free and open source (libre) software. One of the most effective tools you can use to minimize breaches in privacy is the Tor Browser. Other practices include using a privacy-respecting search engine such as Start Page, Duck Duck Go, or SearX (you can even roll-your-own).
