Privacy Policy

This is a personal blog and I don't really want to store more personal information than strictly necessary. As a result this is a relatively simple privacy policy.

Data collected

Analytics (Matomo)

This site runs Matomo (formerly Piwik). When you visit this site it will record your visit, which particular page you visited, the time of the visit, the browser used, your country (derived by IP), and your anonymized ip-address (e.g. 192.168.XXX.XXX). There is no personally identifiable information being stored in Matomo.

Comments (Coral Talk)

I use Coral Talk as a comment system on my blog. It requires that you sign-up via email and password or Google sign-in. If you sign-up, my Coral Talk instance will collect your name (as provided by you or from your Google account) and email address. You may delete your account at any time and request your comment history under My Profile and Settings.

The comment system uses Gravatar internally to serve avatars. Users' hashed emails will be passed to the Gravatar service to check if the user has an avatar. Only Gravatar will see the hashed emails, they are never shared with the web. You can read Gravatar's privacy policy here.
