this site doesn’t collect any “personal data”
If information isn’t collected, it can’t be stolen, demanded, leaked or abused. Protecting your personal data is the best way to safeguard your online privacy.
“personal data” defined
This site’s definition of personal data is based on the privacy laws and regulations of the EU, including the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). These are widely regarded as the strongest privacy protections in the world. We consider any information about you or your behavior that can be traced back to you as personal data.
Information we don’t collect
So let’s be perfectly clear:
- This site doesn’t record your IP address
- The only exception is for automated search requests (robots) that rapidly submit more queries to our servers than any normal human would. When site software detects potential abuse, the offending IP address is registered and blocked .
- This site doesn’t serve any tracking or identifying cookies
- This is about “good” and “bad” cookies. Cookies are small pieces of data that are sent to your hard drive by websites you visit. “Bad” cookies have unique elements that can track all kinds of personal information. We don’t serve any of those.
your search queries are not recorded
When you search, your query is automatically stripped of unnecessary metadata including your IP address and other identifying information. This site does not log your searches.
To prevent abuse such as robotic high-volume querying, this site anonymously determines the frequency of popular search keywords as an anti-abuse measure, while protecting your privacy.
this site does not use analytics
your contact information is not disclosed or sold
When you contact me via email or through this site, I’ll use your contact information to respond to you. We won’t sell or share this info with anyone else. You have the option to subscribe to my gig spam and you can unsubscribe at any time.
responding governmental requests for data
They can’t request what I don’t have.
this site does not comply with any voluntary surveillance program
Unfortunately, this site is not based in the EU, where there are strong laws that protect your right to privacy. For now, the government where this site is hosted can’t legally force the service provider for this site to implement a blanket spying program.

This site fully complies with the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (CCPA) which gives you more control over the personal information that businesses collect about you
