Privacy Policy

Who we are

Here at nerdoflinux.com, we value your privacy as much as our own. We understand your privacy concerns, and we hope this privacy policy will help you better understand the information we collect, and why.

The personal data we collect and why

Standard Information– We collect standard server logs, which include,but are not limited to, the following information:
* IP address
* Date and time of access
* Method(i.e. “Get or Post”)
* The URL you access
* What protocol you use(i.e. “https”)
* Your user agent
Here’s an example of our server logs:

127.0.0.1 - - [17/May/2018:16:35:14 -0500] "GET /tech/internet/a-rant-about-the-gdpr/ HTTP/1.1" 200 16090 "https://nerdoflinux.com/" "Mozilla/5.0 (X11; CrOS x86_64 10452.85.0) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/66.0.3359.158 Safari/537.36"

This information is used mainly for debugging purposes, and is not automatically transmitted by us to third parties.

Analytics– We also use a few analytics services that keep track of things such as, but not limited to:
* IP address
* Date and time of access
* URL you visit
* Referrer(if applicable)
* User agent
* Device information(i.e. “iPhone 6”)

We use these analytics to allow us to better understand how users interact with our site. This, in turn, allows us to create more of the content that readers want. However, if you would not like to be tracked, you can turn of the majority of the analytics tools we use by enabling Do Not Track in your browser. However, please keep in mind that not allowing us to track which pages visitors go to, we can not know which content is liked more. We do NOT sell this information to any third parties.

Information you provide– We also store and log any information your provide us with, such as, but not limited to, when you submit a comment, or use our contact form.
