I have added some information about cookies and privacy on the site. I’m not a lawyer, and I don’t want to go into legalese, so it’s real simple:
- I don’t collect any personal or financial information at this site, so I don’t need to use HTTPS – but see 2 below.
- I am running a vanilla-flavored, out-of-the-box configuration of Google Analytics, just to see if anybody is visiting the site. (They are not.)
- Cookies created in your browser are from Google Analytics. As of this writing, the cookies are _ga, _gat and _gid. You can read about cookies here: https://cookiepedia.co.uk . There are also some WordPress cookies generated as a result of visiting the blog.
I may get cute and add some EU-style cookie opt-out features someday if I get bored. Don’t hold your breath. Cheers!
