Privacy is a Human Right

I believe privacy is a fundamental human right. I made this privacy policy simple and straightforward, so you understand what I gather about my visitors and why it matters.

Analytics

I gather information on how many people visit trev.com for purposes both egotistical and editorial. This helps me understand how often people stop by, what they read, and what they ignore. I use this helps me decide what is and isn’t worth posting.

Every website keeps track of visitors, some more than others. I run a private copy of Piwik, an open-source analytics tool designed with privacy in mind. At the moment I’m testing a few other analytics engines so your data may be captured by a handful of apps.

Personally Identifiable Information

I don’t collect your personally identifiable information. If you send me an e-mail or sign up for a mailing list, you may be asked to provide your e-mail address or other personally identifiable information. If you don’t want to provide personally identifiable information just don’t send in the first place. Simple.

Do Not Track

You can enable a feature called Do Not Track in your browser. This setting isn’t supported by one of the analytics engines I’m testing and may not be respected in that specific case. Otherwise I absolutely respect your request not to be tracked.

Cookies

My analytics engine stores cookies so I can see how many visitors come back to trev.com. These cookies don’t have any of your personal information and can only be read by trev.com. If you are curious about Cookies you can learn more here.

Web Hosting

I don’t own the infrastructure that sends trev.com to you. When you visit trev.com your internet provider talks to a bunch of computers that end up asking my host Webfaction for the web page. I have no control over your Internet provider.

Webfaction is a capable host who has never let me down. That said, they keep their own logs and may have more information about trev.com’s visitors than I do. Visitors of trev.com are subject to Webfaction’s policies. Please look at their Privacy Policy and Terms of Service.
