A letter from Ari Gunzburg, on behalf of MindSpark:
I don’t like being personally tracked all over the internet, with dozens of scripts that slow my browser down and try to figure out every single click I make with my mouse and where I am looking.
I don’t like my data being shared with tech companies that then use this extra data to try and make money off of me, either by selling me things I don’t need or by selling my information to others.
I have opted to not use Google Analytics or any other analytics software run by a major corporation.
The only analytics software on this website is a lightweight, mostly open-source solution. All the data within is aggressively anonymized. And we honor the ‘Do Not Track’ setting in your browser. I am using their cloud hosted version of the software. And the only reason this software is on here is because it helps with budgeting for hosting and more to know about how many users I have.
I don’t track any personal data via this website, whatsoever. Unless you submit your own data, such as signing up for email or filling out a form. But that is not tracked, merely delivered. And you may request, at any point in time, to have all of your private data deleted, by simply filling out the contact form.
If you fill out a form on this website, we will use that information to contact you. That is, after all, what contact forms and email subscription forms are for. We won’t share or sell this information, except to trusted 3rd parties who are not supposed to use this information.
Whoever started ‘privacy policies’ opened up a whole can of worms. But there are certain things it is probably smart to have, so here goes:
For the most part, this website is not meant for people in the European Union. However, if someone from the EU does visit this website: all tracking data is 100% anonymized; we do not collect personally identifiable data. Even IP addresses are obfuscated in our data sets, to ensure that we and no one else can identify any users.
If you fill out a form on this website, you are consenting to us collecting and then storing said information on this website or with trusted 3rd parties (such as a mailing list service).
By sending a simple contact request, we will easily delete or export and deliver all of your identifiable information, or both – or whatever you request. Please be clear what names/email addresses may have been submitted and we will search for all to verify that all data is delivered or deleted.
This site is meant for people who are at least 13 years old and older.
You consent to this policy by using this site.
Changes will post to this page, and the date will be updated below.
