I am personally quite sensitive to the availibility and use of my personal data, and the preservation of my personal rights and privacy. So I do my best to preserve the privacy of the visitors of my website – you ;) For example I am pretty happy to have switched (in December 2019) to a theme that does not embed Google fonts :)
Log data / IP addresses
I host the site myself on a virtual private server at gandi.net, using nginx as HTTP server. The HTTP server logs traffic information, including IP address of visitors. The latter can under some conditions be traced back to a specific device.
I may analyse the log data for technical purposes, i.e. in case of problems with the website (response time, down time, …).
For now I never had a reason to share log data with third parties. I can think of 2 reasons that may arise:
- I need the help of someone more versed than me in web server technology
- I suspect illegal activities that I want to report to the authorities.
In these cases I would anonymise log data by replacing the IP addresses with e.g. “IP-1”, “IP-2” etc. In case illegal activities are confirmed the competent autorities may request the actual data. This will be handled according to applicable law.
I do not and will not share log data for any other purposes.
This website currently does not use any visitors’ cookies.
As the website is based on WordPress, administration / login cookies are used, but only for myself ;)
In addition to the WordPress core, I use the following plugins. To my knowledge they do not retrieve or transmit any website’s visitors’ data:
- Simple Lightbox
- Bulk Media Register
- Organize Media Library by Folders
- Extend Media Upload
- Nginx Cache
- SAR Friendly SMTP.

This website does not serve any third-party content, especially (but not limited to):
- No analytics
- No social media buttons
- No ads (such as Google Adsense)
- No images, video, fonts (nor similar content) from third-party websites (Instagram, YouTube, Google etc.).
