I have no idea who you are. I don’t care.
I mean, I do care in a human sense. I’m sure you’re a wonderful person. But I don’t care about any of the specifics of you visiting this website.
I collect no data about your visit. I don’t even have analytics running on this website. No beacons, no trackers, no fingerprinting, etc.
The only semi-persistent record of your visit might be (1) a cached response for the URL you visited (but only if it hadn’t been accessed and cached before; even then, this is just a key-value of the URL path and the response, with no other information), or (2) your requested path if it was a 404 (I monitor those pretty closely).
This website is hosted on Microsoft Azure. All logging is turned off (see images below). If I have a problem, I might turn on logging temporarily to help with debugging (I think I’ve done this one time). I do have some internal logging, but it’s ephemeral – it’s saved in memory, never persisted, and is eventually removed and discarded (within an hour, usually). No personal information is stored in these logs, just internal event tracking.
There should be no cookies returned with any response from this website. (I worked pretty hard to shut them all off.)
I load very little cross-domain. A couple exceptions:
Some pages have YouTube embeds, which load a bunch of stuff from Google; I can’t fix this
Some video is loaded from media.deanebarker.net, which is just a CDN pointing to an Azure file storage account
Other than that, if you load a page from this website, all resources loaded by your browser for that page should come directly from this website.
This page, for example:
There are no forms on this website. I take in no inbound data. I store no data associated with you.
I don’t need to know anything about you. If you want to tell me something, I’m easy to find.
I hope you enjoyed your visit.
