Privacy policy

This site (“”) is hosted on Netlify. Netlify keeps server access logs for 30 days. These logs include Personally Identifiable Information (PII) such as IP addresses. (Source: Netlify’s commitment to protect your data [archived copy made on 3 November 2020].)

Launch email notification permalink

If you sign up to be notified of the site launch by email, your email address, IP address, and sign-up time will be stored in a list on Netlify. Netlify, as noted in the opening paragraph, is the platform on which this site is hosted.

I will delete your email address from the list after the launch email is sent.

Netlify runs all form submissions through spam-filtering tool Akismet. Akismet is run by Automattic, the company behind Akismet’s privacy page states that:

  • “We don't collect more data than we need to in order to protect your site against spam.”
  • “The data we do collect is securely stored for short periods of time and then automatically deleted from our databases.”

It also states that “You can always opt-out of all long-term tracking at any time you wish.” This is something I will seek clarification on since ‘long-term tracking’ should, in my view, be off by default.

(For future reference, I’ve taken a new snapshot of the Akismet privacy page on 9 November 2020).
