Privacy Policy

I do not store any of your data.

I am having a hard time taking care of my own data — so please, do not send me yours! If you send me any of your data, I will happily ignore it and delete everything right away. Technically speaking, I do not store any information about your visit, anyhow, anywhere, ever. This website does not provide you with any opportunity file in your data, so please don’t try.

I will not track you.

I mean, why should I? I do not care too much about what you are doing — so please, do not tell me. Trust me, it’s hard enough for me to track my own activities, and I could not spend time on tracking yours as well. Again, technically speaking, I do not use any kind of web analysis software to track your visits to my site.

I will not share your data.

I guess I would have a hard time sharing something I do not have. But from a technical point of view, this means

I really like cookies.

I usually take

  1. 300g plain flour
  2. 250g butter
  3. 250g brown sugar
  4. 2 eggs
  5. 1 tsp. baking powder
  6. 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  7. 200g chocolate chips

mash everything together, drop by large spoonfuls onto parchment paper and bake by 180° C for 10 minutes.

Other than that, I do not use any cookies on this website. If you send me a cookie, I will eat it. In particular, I will not set any cookies to store data in your web browser software.

But what about my IP-address?

Well, you got me on that. Since you’re obviously reading this (I was hoping you’d stop with the cookie recipe, it’s delicious!), you have access to what’s called “the internet”. Therefore, you sent me your IP-address when opening my website3. There is no way my server could answer your requests (e.g., for cookie recipes!) without you providing me with your IP-address. However, apart from sending out an answer to your request to your IP-address, I will not use your IP-address for any further purpose. Technically speaking, my server will answer requests to my public IPv4 or IPv6 addresses via HTTP or HTTPS. She will gather all the data you are interested in and possibly some more, send it out to you, close the connection and instantaneously forget about you4. That’s how she rolls.

If you prefer not to disclose your real IP-address to me at all, why don’t you use Tor?

Remarks

  1. “But what about the map?” My server is working hard to render those beautiful map tiles for you. You’re welcome!
  2. Bear in mind: there is no cloud, just other people’s computers!
  3. In fact, you sent it multiple times. However, I try to keep the number of requests required to display my website at a minimum.
  4. Most likely, your web browser software will request my server to wait a bit before closing the connection. This way, the two of them can get in touch much faster if y ou happen to open further pages. So more precisely, as long as your web browser has an open connection to my server, my server knows your IP-address. As soon as your web browser closes the connection, however, she will forget about you.
