Your Privacy And How we Protect It
This website is hosted on a secure cloud platform that ensures the highest levels of security. We don’t log user data, we don’t track users, and we don’t collect IP addresses. All data is stored in encrypted form, and the access to the server is limited to a few people with the appropriate security clearance. All communication between you and the website is encrypted. The website does not store any information that can be used to identify you. Your IP address is anonymized (hidden), and we use a technology called TLS (also known as SSL) to encrypt your data. This ensures that no one can intercept or tamper with your data.
Why Privacy Is Vital
Protecting user privacy is not just a moral obligation, it’s also an important legal requirement. The GDPR, which came into effect in May 2018, imposes strict rules on businesses regarding the way they handle user data. Failure to comply can result in a fine of up to 10% of the company’s annual turnover. The GDPR is a good thing – it’s a positive move towards greater privacy and data protection. User data shouldn’t be collected without consent, and it should be deleted as soon as it’s not required. There must be meaningful consent and the option to withdraw consent at any time.
Our Treatment Of Cookies
Unlike many other websites, this website doesn’t use tracking cookies by default. If you’re logged into the website, you’ll be assigned a session ID which will be stored in your browser’s local storage. Since this data is stored locally in your browser, no one (not even the website administrator) can access it. The session ID is used to identify you as you move between pages and is important for security functionality such as two-factor authentication (2FA). If you’re logged out, the website will assign you a random ID to avoid cross-site tracking. This means that the website can’t see what other websites you’re visiting, and they can’t see what other websites are visiting you. In both cases, cookies are not used. Instead, a local storage ID is created in your browser and used to track your activities. No cookies are used by default.
The website does not track ad-click data to determine which ads are most effective. If you’re logged into the website, the administrator knows what ads you clicked on, but nothing more than that. We don’t track your browsing information to see which articles are most popular or which are most frequently visited. You can rest assured that your data is not being used to improve or tailor advertising.
All data that is transmitted to and from the website is encrypted using SSL (also known as TLS or HTTPS). We use HTTPS by default with a valid TLS certificate, so you don’t need to take any special action to protect your data. We’ve been serving content over HTTPS since 2012, and we have a long-standing commitment to protecting all data that passes between our website and our readers. We take SSL/TLS seriously in all our products and services. We use a private Certificate Authority (CA) to issue our TLS certificates, and we host the CA in a private data center. All data between the CA, our website, and readers is encrypted via 2048-bit RSA.
Like many websites, this website is GDPR compliant and has been since its inception. We’ve worked hard to earn your trust over the years, and we’re going to keep working hard to maintain your trust in the months and years ahead. To ensure that we’re always compliant with GDPR, we’ve adopted the following best practices:
1) Data is only collected if the user has provided consent to be tracked or if it’s necessary for the operation of an application.
2) The data collected is limited to what is necessary.3) Data is only retained for as long as it’s necessary.
4) We don’t store your passwords or email addresses.
5) We don’t collect or store any personal data.
6) We don’t send marketing emails.
7)We don’t sell your email address or other personal data to third parties.
We don’t store your login credentials or your email address. We don’t require an email address for signup, and we don’t collect it if you provide one. We don’t use your email address to send you marketing emails or to sell it to third parties. This means that even if someone manages to break into our database, they won’t be able to find your email address. We store only a salted hash of your password and don’t store the password itself. We don’t use two-factor authentication. It’s important to note that we don’t store your login credentials, so two-factor authentication isn’t necessary.
This website protects your privacy, so you can focus on reading content without worrying about your privacy being compromised.
