Privacy and Cookie Policy

On this privacy and cookie policy page I will explain to you about the personal information that this website collects and why I collect it.

Information that this website collects

Like most websites, this website uses Google Analytics to track visitors and measure how users interact with this site.

The following information is collected:

Even though I have access to this information, none of this information personally identifies you to me.

Google Analytics also records your computer's IP address (which could be used to personally identify you), but Google does not give me access to this information.

But:

I enabled IP anonymization in Google Analytics, which means that your full IP address will never be stored.

The IP anonymization/masking takes place as soon as data is received by the Analytics Collection Network, before any storage or processing takes place. More information about IP Anonymization.

Google Analytics uses cookies to track visitors and measure how users interact with this site.

More information about Google Analytics.

Why I collect this information

I collect this information to analyze and improve the content of this website.

Advertisements

Like many websites, this website uses advertisements from Google Adsense to earn money to keep this site running and to pay my bills.

If ad personalization is turned on, Google will use your information to make your ads more useful for you.

For example, a website that sells laptops might use Google's ad services. After you visit that site, you could see an ad for laptops on a different website that shows ads served by Google.

If ad personalization is turned off, Google will not collect or use your information to create an ad profile or personalize the ads Google shows to you. You will still see ads, but they may not be as useful.

Google Adsense uses cookies to improve advertising. Some common uses of cookies for advertising are to target advertising based on what's relevant to a user, to improve reporting on campaign performance, and to avoid showing ads the user has already seen.

But:

These cookies contain no information that personally identifies you to Google.
