This website avoids collecting personal data whenever possible. There are no cookies, analytics or third-party trackers. HTTP server logs only record requests’ date and time as well as protocol, method and URL along with referrer and the corresponding response’s status code:

[01/Mar/2023:11:27:59 +0000] "GET /colophon/ HTTP/1.1" 200 ""

IP addresses or user-agent details are not recorded. Logs are retained for about a month.

Content is encrypted via HTTPS. Network providers and other intermediaries may still be able to observe connections to this website, but not what is being transmitted. This also prevents intermediaries from modifying content.
