Tracking

Do we track you?

We are not tracking you. We do not use any cookies or other tracking or identification-related super-secret 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.
