Cookies

What are cookies?

This website uses some functional cookies in order to remember your preferences, such as your preferred language or its color theme. These cookies are not and cannot be used to track you.

However, as this site is protected by Cloudflare, they may also host some cookies to remember, for example, that your browser is safe or to record traffic to the site.

How can I control cookies on my computer?

If you don’t want Cloudflare to record your browsing activity on my website, a good adblocker should do the trick. I personally recommend uBlock Originopen in new window, one of the most effective adblockers I know of if not the most effective one.

You can also manually delete cookies from your browser, but given the number of browsers out there, it might be quicker for you to look up DuckDuckGo, Qwant or Startpage to do this for your current browser (if you’re worried about cookie usage, I guess you’ll want to avoid Google).

What about other methods of tracking users?

There are other more subtle methods of tracking someone on the internet, or even via emails or any web content rendered on the screen, such as web beacons (extremely small images). It is also possible to store Flash cookies or local shared objects.

This site does not use them at all.

Is there any analytics on this website?

Yes, but here’s the catch: I use a self-hosted umamiopen in new window instance to track what happens on this website. This service uses no cookies, is fully GDPR and CCPA compliant, and completely anonymises you. I just know that someone went on such or such web page, but I have no way of knowing that the same person went on this then that page. Your privacy is completely respected.

If you still want to block tracking, you can add umami.phundrak.com to the list of domains blocked by uBlock Origin (the only adblocker I’ll ever trust).

Is there targeted advertisement on this website?

There’s no advertisement to begin with. If you see any, check your computer and browser for virus, that is not normal.

How often is this page updated?

It is updated from time to time to reflect any changes in how my website behaves, or if I notice errors on this page (such as typos).

You can see the last update of this page by looking at the last modification of the file about.org on this pageopen in new window.
