Privacy Policy


The Webserver is writing log data with IP-Adresses of the visitors.
This is only done to find errors in case of an emergency.
Otherwise the data will not be analyzed.


I have decided to use fathom to analyze some anonymous usage data for my website. This is done so that I can get a better overview of the users that are seeing my content. By doing this I can learn how to write better and more relevant content.
The data is stored on a server of mine.

By agreeing to the cookie and analytics popup, there will be cookies and data in the local storage set in your browser.
The local storage stores the information whether or not tracking is allowed anf if the pop up should be closed.
Then a cookie will be set by fathom for the actual tracking.

Stop the tracking

If you want to stop tracking, just click on the Privacy Popup button in the navigation to reopen it. Then click on Disagree to stop the tracking.
All previously set data in local storage and the fathom cookie will be deleted.

Using the comments function

If you decide to use the commenting functions some data will be stored.
Here is a small rundown of all the data collected. This is taken from which is writing the Commento software that provides the functionality.
