This page describes what information they gather, how I use it and why I sometimes need to store these cookies. I will also share how you can prevent these cookies from being stored however this may downgrade or 'break' certain elements of the sites functionality.

How We Use Cookies

I use Squarespace Analytics to learn about the users of my website (see the data I collect). By default, no cookie will be created on your device. However if you accept the cookie information popup that appears at the beginning of your session a cookie will be created.

If you are browsing this website I collect the same basic information that most websites collect. These information help me to better understand my visitors to improve my content. I collect the following data about every visitor of this website:

  • Date
