Privacy Policy

What data does adamhobson.com collect?

The only data that I collect via this website is your e-mail address that you optionally provide to subscribe to receive site updates. Since that is optional, you are free to not provide your e-mail address.

What do I do with the data that adamhobson.com collects?

I will send you an e-mail when I publish a new post to this site. That’s it. I will never give away or sell your information.

What third parties does adamhobson.com use?

I use several third party services to run adamhobson.com. I’ve selected each third party careful to ensure they respect your privacy and mine. I’ve avoided “free” services that exist to collect data for means other than to provide the service.

Service Privacy Notice Description

What about Google, Facebook, Twitter, etc…?

I do not use Google analytics on adamhobson.com. Fonts are provided by Google Fonts, but served from this domain, not from Google. Buttons to subscribe or share on social networks are hardcoded links, not implemented via potentially privacy invading JavaScript widgets.

Certain posts may embed YouTube videos or other external content. I will do my best to provide the least invasive embedding impossible, e.g. by embedding YouTube content using the “no cookie[1]” domain.

I make no claim for the privacy of any external link. Visit at your own discretion.

How can I find out about changes to your privacy policy?

This version of adamhobson.com’s privacy policy took effect on March 29th, 2020.

I will post future versions to this same page at adamhobson.com/privacy/. I will do my best to note and track changes.
