What personal data I collect and why I collect it

Matomo Analytics

This blog uses self-hosted Matomo, which is a more ethical analytics platform than i.e Google Analytics. I do not track you across platforms. I mask your IP address so that I cannot uniquely identify who has been accessing the site. I am interested in very basic analytics.

All in One WP Security

For security, this blog uses the All in One WP Security plugin. If you try to brute force this site, your IP will be logged and banned.

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.

How I protect your data

Encrypt all the things!
Keep as few plugins (attack vectors) as possible.
Keep the WordPress theme updated.

What data breach procedures I have in place

I operate under the presumption that it’s better to keep as little personally identifiable information as possible (Data as Toxic waste), and therefore a breach will only affect myself.
