While this site does not collect any personal information, some routine transaction data is collected in the server logs. Specifically, the following fields are logged by the web server,
- Access time (when you access a page on the site)
- IP Address
- Request (the specific page you are accessing)
- User-agent (which may include what web browser and operating system you are using)
This information is logged by most sites, so there shouldn’t be anything too surprising here.
Usage of Collected Data
The usage of any of the information collected in the above section is restricted to basic server monitoring and debugging.
From this data, I may generate aggregated statistics, such as page hit counts, to assess overall traffic on a page-by-page basis. This is for tracking both post popularity, and ensuring sufficient server hardware to handle traffic.
This data will never be given or sold to any third party, nor will it be used for any purpose other than those mentioned above.
