Privacy-Friendly

We care about the privacy.

Tracking

Do we track you?

We are not tracking you. We do not use any cookies or other tracking technologies.

Fonts

We took a step further, and we use the privacy-friendly drop-in replacement for Google Fonts, made available by coolLabs: https://fonts.coollabs.io.

Update: We're hosting our fonts on our servers now. Nevertheless, we do suggest checking out the A privacy-friendly drop-in replacement for Google Fonts. ❤️

Google FLoC & Privacy Sandbox

We fought against the Google FLoC, inspired by our friends from Plausible Analytics (by enforcing the interest-cohort=() via the Permissions-Policy header), but apparently Google have abandoned it in January 2022! 🎉

We do suggest checking this site for more details: https://amifloced.org/ to learn more about whether you're affected by the Google FLoC.

Analytics

Do we use it and which one is it

We use simple and privacy-friendly Google Analytics alternative called Plausible Analytics, and we do not use any other analytics services. Plausible is lightweight and open source web analytics. No cookies and fully compliant with GDPR, CCPA, and PECR. Made and hosted in the EU, powered by European-owned cloud infrastructure 🇪🇺

Information about advertisements

We do not use any advertising ad-revenue services. We might include links to our friends services on our site (e.g., "Fosshost").

Social Media

We do use social media sharing buttons on our blog, but they are merely a hard-coded links for sharing blog posts. No 3rd-party plugins or scripts are used:
