This is my blog, named for an old New York Lottery marketing slogan.

HTTPS?

Do I really need HTTPS for this website? I’m tempted to get rid of it, but a blog post by Mathias Biilmann Christensen at Netlify suggests five reasons I should stick with HTTPS even though my site is static.

GDPR

I’m not sure if I’m bound by the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) or not, but it doesn’t really matter. I don’t intentionally collect any data about you.

  1. There’s no mailing list or newsletter to collect your name and email.
  2. There’s no Google Analytics spyware.
  3. There’s no Facebook spyware.

However, you should be aware of the following:

  1. Some posts have embedded content from services like YouTube. These embeds may contain spyware.
  2. This website is hosted by Dreamhost, which maintains server logs for various purposes.

If you want to be safer while visiting this website, you should either disable JavaScript or use a browser that doesn’t support JS, such as Lynx.

As for why I don’t collect data about you: I don’t need to. I don’t run ads on this site. I don’t have a “business model”. I have a day job.
