Cookies & Stored Information
What are cookies? A cookie is a small file placed on your hard drive by the browser. Cookies can store certain information about you as the user, your preferences, help with identification, and allow us to provide a more tailored experience. Cookies can be stored as either cookies, local storage values, or session storage values.
We have no reason to store plenty of cookies on your machine since we are publishing a newsletter, not tracking your location, life choices, or sleeping patterns.
We may occasionally save a cookie for testing purposes, or to store information about your subscription (for example, if you subscribed to certain newsletter).
Most of cookies stored by our systems may be third party analytic software systems, like Google Analytics, Hotjar, Mailgun etc. Those help us determine our audience better and see
which parts of our service users like and which they do not.
You may disable cookies in most browsers. Disabling cookies should not affect the usage of the site, our service, or your subscription.
What data do we collect and store?
We collect only the most important data for our service to work properly, below you will find the list of information that we may collect:
- Your email address: obviously. But only if you send it to us. Your email is stored in a secure third party mailing list, and can always be removed upon request.
- Your IP Address, hardware and software information, such as but not limited to, browser type and version: this helps us with delivering the best experience to you.
Of course, we don't need your operating system type, but for example your IP will help us determine which timezone you are in and when to deliver th newsletter to you!
We do not store any of those information. We may store the timezone though.
- Usage statistics and analytics: once again, those are mostly collected by third party systems to help us track our systems usage.
- Email feedback and tracking: our third party provider allows us to track delivery and opens of emails sent to you, to see how our platform performs, which articles you found interesting,
how you rate us etc. We do store this information in a secure third party system, it can always be removed upon request.
