logoPrivacy Statement

Privacy Policy

Your privacy is important to us. Therefore, we minimize any intrusions while balancing this with the need to keep the site operating securely and free of charge.

In order to do that, we adhere to industry standards and follow that evolution.

Logs

The logs kept on this website are industry standard logs and are used for statistical purposes as well as troubleshooting of issues with the server and/or the interaction of the server with users reporting problems.

Access logs that contain your IP address are removed on a daily basis after statistical analysis. The analysis does not keep track of your IP address. Error logs are kept for a week. This period can be extended during the investigation of (security) incidents as needed up to a maximum of a month.

Logs could also accidentally end up on backups and remain there for a longer period of time off-line. These logs will not be accessed and will be wiped should the backup ever be used.

Cookies

We use session cookies to enhance your experience and to allow statistical analysis of visitor behavior. This analysis is anonymous and aimed to allow to enhance the website and improve your experience.

Session cookies expire at the end of a browser session and hence cannot be used to track you long-term nor across websites.

EU and EEA considerations

GDPR

We have removed Google Adsense ads for visitors coming to us from the EEA. This is mostly due to Google not assuming full responsibility for their ads.

Cookies

Google Adsense

This is only relevant for users not in the EEA.

Google Adsense is a critical revenue source in order to keep this website free for its visitors.

In order to implement Adsense, we have to allow Google to run scripts that will attempt to set cookies when you visit one of the pages with such ads on them.

The content of these cookies and the manner they are handled is completely in control of Google, not of this website.

We do not use any 3rd party network within Google Adsense.

We have disabled interest-based ads: this means that we do not allow Google to use our site to build a picture of what you're interested in. To completely get rid of it, you have to disable showing what you are interested in built up on other sites directly with Google yourself (see below).

Google Adsense requires this site to warn that Google can use cookies and/or web beacons to collect data in the ad serving process.

These cookies ("DART") can be used by Google to track your visits on other websites, gauge your interest and allow Google to deliver you ads based on that interest.

You can opt out of interest based advertising.
