Privacy matters but it can be confusing. This page explains the CtrlTilde approach to privacy on this website and how it affects you.
These are just the key points. If you need detail, keep reading.
We measure visitors to our website using Plausible, open-source and privacy-friendly alternative that doesn't come from the adtech world. This records what pages you view within our site, how you arrived at our site and some basic information about your computer. All of that information is anonymous – so we don’t know who you are; just that somebody visited our site.
The information we collect from analytics helps us understand what parts of our sites are doing well, how people arrive at our site and so on. Like most websites, we use this information to make our website better. You can view the information we collect on our plausible dashboard.
These services provide social buttons and similar features which we use on our website – such as the “Like” and “Tweet” buttons.
To do so we embed code that they provide and we do not control ourselves. To function their buttons generally know if you’re logged in; for example Facebook use this to say “x of your friends like this”. We do not have any access to that information, nor can we control how those networks use it.
Social networks therefore could know that you’re viewing this website, if you use their services (that isn’t to say they do, but their policies may change). As our website is remarkably inoffensive we imagine this is not a concern for most users.
We may send you email notifications which you have specifically requested (such as newsletters or updates). You have the ability to opt out of this communication at any time.
We will never provide your personal information or email address to any third parties.
This site takes many precautions to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of your personal information. These precautions include:
Whilst we take great care to ensure any confidential information remains protected we cannot guarantee the security of data sent over the Internet.
