This website attempts to respect your privacy while still gathering some aggregate information.
We would like to evaluate how useful the site is to people, and to generate talking points we can use when promoting the project to others (for example: “Our project got X number of views the week before the election.”)
We would like to answer the following kinds of questions:
We do not have advertising or other monetization on the site. We do not intentionally share individualized data with third parties.
We respect the Do Not Track header. This is considered deprecated but still supported in many web browsers. It appears that there is a replacement standard called Global Privacy Control that is in development, but as of October 2022 nobody supports it yet.
We have disabled local cookie storage for Google Tag Manager. This means we can no longer track unique visitors effectively. Oh well.
We have requested that Google Analytics/Tag Manager anonymize IP addresses.
You can see how we call Google Analytics/Tag Manager in the source code.
Many ad blocking plugins (such as UBlock Origin) will block Google Analytics and Google Tag Manager automatically.
We host this website on GitHub Pages. They collect server logs for security purposes. As far as we know we have no access to these logs.
We use OpenStreetMap for the front page map. They also collect logs and some user data.
