Privacy

The web has become a pile of advertising garbage. Online privacy has been compromised in more ways than you think. I like the idea of a simple, open and anonymous web. With that in mind, here are things you need to know about using this website without worrying about your privacy:

  1. I don’t track you in any way. Who you are, what your interests are and all that do not matter to me. I’m just glad you like the content I’m putting on my site. I don’t even use cookies on this website. (Not all cookies are bad, but I don’t even have any use for the good ones). So you are completely anonymous. If you do want to reach out to me, you can always contact me privately.
  2. I will never put any advertisements on this website, regardless of whether they are obvious or subtle. So, third party tracking is out of the question.
  3. The only place I collect any information from you is on the subscribe page, if you decide to subscribe to my website content by email. Even then, your email address is safe with me. It will never ever be shared with anybody and you can easily unsubscribe. I don’t download or keep a copy of the list anywhere, so there is no chance of it being misused or falling into someone else’s hands.
  4. If you comment on my blog posts, illustrations or photographs using Twitter or any other website, your comments and data are subject to the policies of those websites. None of that information will be displayed on this website anyway, so it is out of the scope of these terms of use.

This is one thing I do care about. I put a lot of effort into my content, researching my posts, using my experience and skills to come up with ideas, illustrations and other content. Unless and otherwise I mention it clearly on a page, all the work here is my copyright and I reserve the rights to display, perform, adapt, modify, copy, distribute and sell my content.

That said, if you want to use my work in some way, send me an email with details of what you want to use and how you intend to use it. In most cases I might let you use some content free of charge (depends on the use of course) as long as you give me an attribution and credit me clearly. I would do the same with any external content I use. Let’s be nice to each other on the Internet :)

Ethics

If I talk about a product or service on this website, it does not mean I am promoting it. I will only talk about products and services that I use or have used in the past and with the sole intention of keeping a record of my experience using it, be it good or bad.

I want the content on this website to speak to you, so I will not ask you to or trick you into subscribing to my content here or following me on any social network or website. You are free to subscribe if you feel that the content I put is good and you can unsubscribe whenever you want to.
