Terms of Use & Privacy Policy

There used to be a long Terms of Use here, in perfect legalese. That seems a bit excessive to me.

The short version is that you use this website, and all content hosted here, at your own risk. Anything that you download to your computer is also done so at your own risk.

The content that I link to is done so with standard scrutiny. If you visit an external site (anything not at pxlnv.com), the liability changes to accord with the privacy policy and terms of that website. In short, the content of external sites is not my problem. I’m sorry for any interstitial or other ads they may send your way.

Privacy? I take that very seriously. I have installed an analytics package called Mint which interprets information which your browser willingly sends anyway, such as IP address, screen resolution, browser, operating system, and referral information. As of July 25, 2015, I’m also testing Piwik. This information is regularly flushed, is kept pseudonymous, and is password-protected. I take reasonable precautions to ensure that nobody else can see this information.

As of right now, I’m pretty sure that DNT signals are ignored by Mint (i.e. it doesn’t actually receive those signals or process them). Then again, I’m not really tracking anything with it — I don’t run targeted ads on the site, for instance. If this changes in a new version of Mint, I’ll update this. Piwik, on the other hand, respects DNT signals. If you have DNT enabled in your browser, it should ignore you.

If you email me, you do so under the assumption that I am free to publish your first name, and the content of your message, unless you request otherwise. I’ll usually check with you to be sure.

Please email me if you have any questions.
