So here’s the deal: I use Google Analytics and Google Adsense. Basically everything on the internet does, and Google is one of the most trusted places on the internet. I used to use Amazon ads, as well, but I’ve recently removed all of their referral links (so if you come across an Amazon link that I missed, feel free to email me to let me know). That being said, I have no idea what Google actually does. I’m sure they track you with cookies so that they can tell me how many people visited and all of that stuff, but that’s about all I know.
That being said, I’m sure it’s nothing personal.
I mean, they’re running billion-dollar companies. They probably have better things to do than spy on you, like skinny dipping in piles of money with models and getting hammered with famous people whose names rhyme with “Bonny Shlepp.”
The whole thing comes down to this: Unless Google enacts some kind of evil plan to take over the world and enslave humanity by suddenly turning profitable services into computer-controlling malware, this site will remain one of the safest places on the internet. I avoid bogging down the site with too many ads, compress images so pages load faster, and generally do everything I can think of to make things as convenient, safe, and unobtrusive as possible.
Anyone looking to get into contact with me should email the following address, though it’s worth keeping in mind that I reserve the right to post anything sent to me (and any subsequent response/s) openly for the sake of transparency should doing so ever become necessary.
