Privacy Practices

While even for an independent site owner it's important to track visitors and episodes, I opted to avoid Google Analytics. The Hoomanist uses Matomo, "a great open-source analytics program that respects the privacy of visitors by anonymizing and truncating visitor IP addresses. It’s the only analytics service that is certified to respect user privacy"[1]. This is greatly anonymized. If you still don't like the idea, you are free to use a Javascript blocker like NoScript. It's a great, simple tool to have in your browser, and very useful with most websites (you can always whitelist Matomo on The Hoomanist after you master its use).
