Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Minimist Design collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Minimist Design’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Minimist Design’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Minimist Design may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Minimist Design also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on blog posts. Minimist Design only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Minimist Design’s websites choose to interact with Minimist Design in ways that require Minimist Design to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Minimist Design gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, I ask visitors who sign up for a blog at to provide a name and email address.


The security of your Personal Information is important to me, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. While I strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, I cannot guarantee its absolute security.

Links To External Sites

My Service may contain links to external sites that are not operated by me. If you click on a third party link, you will be directed to that third party's site. I strongly advise you to review the Privacy Policy and terms and conditions of every site you visit.
I have no control over, and assume no responsibility for the content, privacy policies or practices of any third party sites, products or services.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Minimist Design discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Minimist Design’s behalf or to provide services available at Minimist Design’s website, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Minimist Design’s website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Minimist Design will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Minimist Design discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Minimist Design believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Minimist Design, third parties or the public at large.
If you are a registered user of and have supplied your email address, Minimist Design may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Minimist Design and my products. I primarily use my blog to communicate this type of information, so I expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send me a request (for example via a support email or via one of my feedback mechanisms), I reserve the right to publish it in order to help me clarify or respond to your request or to help me support other users. Minimist Design takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
