“We are committed to protecting your personal informa…”
You know when a “privacy” policy starts out with something like that, it’s probably utter bull, right? Well this one is short and simple. The tl;dr (too long; didn’t read) version: I’m a privacy advocate myself, so you’re in reasonably good hands.
12bytes.org does not collect any personal information other than that which you willingly provide through the various contact forms and subscription options. Providing accurate information such as your real name and email address is never required, however if you choose to provide a fake email address, understand that it will not be possible to reply to your inquiry.
Any personal information which you choose to disclose will remain confidential and will never be provided or sold to any other party.
If you choose to submit a comment on an article or blog post, understand that the information you submit will be viewable by the public with the exception of your email address. It is therefore suggested that you avoid disclosing your real name if you wish to remain anonymous.
Web Server Logging
Similar to almost every website, 12bytes.org is powered by a fairly typical software stack which logs various information about your web browser, as well as your IP address. This information may be used for troubleshooting or analytical purposes. This data is never shared with anyone.
