About privacy in this website

Web and data privacy is something I’m starting to worry more and more. That’s why I try to use in my personal life services and platforms that are respectful with my data and privacy even if sometimes means to pay extra money and avoid free alternatives. That’s for example the reason why I have been using Proton for my personal email addresses. Proton is a company based in Switzerland that provides easy-to-use encrypted email, calendar, file storage, and VPN built on the principle of your data, your rules. It has a monthly cost when you want to have additional features and capacity but it’s focused on privacy and end-to-end encryption.

Following that path, I try to be more careful about my data when browsing the Internet. For this reason, it won’t be totally honest with myself if my website doesn’t follow those some concerns. So when I started this website and wanted to track website traffic, I decided to find a solution that offers also privacy for you and all my visitors.

Ie want to process as little personal information as possible when you use my website. That’s why I’ve chosen Fathom Analytics for my website analytics, which doesn’t use cookies and complies with the GDPR, ePrivacy (including PECR), COPPA and CCPA.
