I try to respect your privacy and be open about what information my website and applications keep.
This page is generated based on state such as cookies that were given to my website by your browser. Read on to see
what this website knows about you.

What My Web Hosting Service Tells Me About You
My website has access to information browsers always reveal when talking to web servers. Here is a list of
the most sensitive of this information, plus a reminder of whether/how I use it.
My website includes the browser type in incident reports.
Referring Web Page
I log this in an incident
report if the scripting code in a website page reports that it crashed in your browser.
Your Computer's IP (Network) Address
I do not use this right now,
but if I detect trouble from spammers or kindred trouble makers, I will use this as needed to
block or backtrack the attacks.
What I Track About Website Visitors and App Users
In addition to the product reviews, problem reports, helpful hints, and product related suggestions
that you voluntarily submit, my website and applications call home to let me track the following data:
Browser Setting For Scripts
Visits to each web page and application screen
The version of this website and my applications released while I was attempting to
offer apps as a business kept a count of the total number of visits for each web page and application screen.
The counts were stored as sums over all visits for all users. They were never broken down by user or labeled by user.
versions of this website and applications created since I switched to hobbyist mode do not collect such information
outside of standard website hosting logs and problem reports. In the versions of applications released in hobbyist mode,
the sequence of screens visited recently and more detailed user activity is included with any problem
reports that you decide to send me. You will be given the chance to edit each problem report first
to safeguard against release of information that you consider private. The details of recent activity
leading up to a crash or to the point where you are frustrated enough to send a report are used to figure
out what is wrong and how to fix it.
Number of uses of each major feature
When I write an application, I decide on what "features" should
be tracked, either to guide decisions on what features to focus on or to include in a listing of
what you did leading up to a serious fault (e.g. crash). For example, I might track whether an
application is used in "inches" mode or
"centimeters" mode. If a bug report says a crash happened while in centimeters mode and I
can't get the application to crash in the default inches mode, I would know to see if switching to
centimeters mode would trigger the crash.
My applications only upload information about feature usage for feature guidance mode in the form
of counts that are stored as the sum over all users, and then only if you first explicitly opt in first.
My applications will only upload recent feature usage data with problem reports you ask to send and then only
after you have a chance to edit out details that you consider to be too sensitive.
Measures of Performance
When I can, I write my applications to monitor their usage of the CPU,
memory, and disk. Some versions of my applications work with my website to record aggregated statistics
(i.e. not broken down by user or by computer) so that I can keep an eye out for bugs that show up as sluggish
behavior or resource hogging. These applications only update data if you explicitly granted permission. Recent
versions only send up such data when you decide to send me a problem report.
