The Gist

We use a privacy-friendly analytics solution to track aggregate trends in page views, but no personal information is collected. You can read more about how that’s possible on their site. We also collect emails for the purpose of sending out newsletters when new articles are published. Beyond that, we make our best effort to not collect any information about you, because it means nothing to us. We are a site that posts articles, that’s what we want to do. We don’t want to spend time dealing with compliance because we collected a bunch of user information we don’t have any use for. If there’s a gap we’re missing, please feel free to reach out and we are happy to look into changing it to help protect the privacy and security of our visitors.
