Privacy Policy

Last updated: April 14th 2024

Hello, welcome to the privacy policy for, I want to be transparent about anything this site collects from you and what I use it for.

The privacy policy in this site includes these points:

How I collect your information

The only piece of information I collect is your email address if you sign up to receive email updates from me.

I use Buttondown to capture your email address when you give it voluntarily via the email sign up form, you can see their privacy statement here.

The information collected is an email address with no other personal identifying information.

What I do with collected information

I use the collected information (an email address) to send emails to subscribers.

If there is a giveaway being run where I need to send something in the post, like stickers. I will request your address via the email given in the mailing list on Buttondown. Once the package has been sent I will delete any emails with identifying information in them.

What cookies, pixels, and other trackers my site uses and their purpose.

Ok, cookies! On, I use cookies, but keep it simple. I use a cookie to remember your theme choice, that’s it.

The theme cookie is like a handy helper that knows your theme preference every time you drop by. No fuss. If you don’t change then theme then no cookie is set.

You can find more about them both in the Cookie Policy.

I use Fathom Analytics to measure page visits to, they use no cookies, no trackers, you can view the Fathom Analytics privacy statement here.

Any advertising networks and their methods/purposes of data collection and ad delivery.

I don’t use any advertising networks on my site, they all suck!
