Privacy is very important to me and I care a lot about the privacy of people that visit my website. My website is a very simple static website that is hosted on AWS S3. I don’t keep any server logs but AWS probably does on their end. They have to track what they are going to bill me somehow!
Like most website operators, I use Google Analytics which collects non-personally-identifying informaiton of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. I use this data to find problems on website, to better understand how people use my website, and for mere vaniety.
The only time I have any personally-identifiable about visitors is if they give it to me by signing up for my newsletter or by sending me a message via my contact for. I use Drip to management my newsletter and a service called FormKeep powers my contact form. One additional way I receipt personally-identifiable information is if a vistor comments on one of my posts. I use a service called Disqus to allow people to comment the things I write. Some data is sent from these services to Zapier, which is a service I use to help me automated some of the boring tasks that can make maintaining a website a drudgery.
