We use self-hosted Plausible Analytics for logging basic info. The open-source software is GDPR compliant and no PII is stored, without any use of cookies. The data is also stored in Switzerland based servers. Tracking script: https://z.vimarsh.info/js/plausible.js

A default cookie Local Storage metadata is stored to store your preference for either dark mode or light mode. This cookie data is never sent to our servers and code is run locally on your machine to change the UI.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content – including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Newsletter

Who we share your data with

We do not share any of your data with anyone.

How long do we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
