A "cookie" is a small piece of data that your browser receives from websites you visit, and which is stored as a file on your hard drive.
Cookies are often necessary to make a website work, others to give you a good user experience, for example remembering if you are logged in to my course portal, or to analyze website traffic.
When you use this website, I want to process as little personal information as possible.
And because I truly honor your privacy, I stopped using Google Analytics years ago (when I realized how much data about my website visitors I was sharing with them, that they again use for their own ad purposes and also sell to the highest bidder...).
Still, I run a business and website insights are important.
So after carefully considering three alternatives (and well before I became their Privacy Officer, mind you) , I chose Fathom Analytics, to safeguard your privacy in the best possible way. And because they're awesome (who doesn't like a privacy-focused startup fighting to improve privacy globally!).
