Google Adsense (Ads)

Google uses cookies to help serve the ads it displays on the websites of its partners, such as websites displaying Google ads or participating in Google certified ad networks. When users visit a Google partner’s website, a cookie may be dropped on that end user’s browser.

Third party vendors, including Google, use cookies to serve ads based on a user’s prior visits this website or other websites.

Google’s use of advertising cookies enables it and its partners to serve ads to your users based on their visit to this site and/or other sites on the Internet.

Users from EEA and UK can disable personalized ads when visiting this website for the first time, or clicking on the option at bottom of main page.

Users from California, USA, can select “Don’t sell my data” option when visiting the website for the first time.

Users may opt out of Google personalized advertising by visiting Ads Settings.

Users may opt out of third-party vendor’s use of cookies for personalized advertising by visiting www.aboutads.info.

Google collects aggregated data about users’ country and device type (mobile, tablet or desktop).

Cloudflare (CDN)

We collect public IP and browser info from users only for the following purposes:

  • Getting aggregated generic geographic information (user’s country).
  • Protecting web resources from attacks.

Cloudflare Web Analytics

Web Analytics uses its lightweight JavaScript beacon to collect the information Vitals Explorer uses. It does not use any client-side state, such as cookies or localStorage, to collect usage metrics. Cloudflare does not track individual end users across our customers’ Internet properties. Vitals Explorer also does not “fingerprint” individuals via their IP address, User Agent string, or any other data.

How to improve privacy when using this website (and others)

Although I find useful to have the services mentioned above on this website, they use cookies and can get personal data like IPs to build user profiles in order to show personalized ads or to calculate unique page views. You should be free to choose if you want to be tracked, so I will show you some methods to improve your privacy when browsing:

Change browser settings

Firefox:

  • Go to Settings > Privacy & Security.
  • Under “Enhanced Tracking Protection”, select “Strict”. This will block any third-party cookies and any tracking content.

Firefox privacy settings

“Private” browsers

Some web browsers deny all cookies (and even disable Javascript) by default, and you can create exceptions for specific domains. In Android, a good private browser is Privacy Browser.

Tor

Using Tor can improve your privacy because your IP is not accessible for websites. You must use Tor with a compatible browser (like Tor Browser).
