Last Updated: Oct 13, 2020

This Privacy Policy (“Policy”) outlines the personal information handling practices on the main site davidxiao.me and the mirror site davxiao.github.io (“this site”, “I,”, “me,” and “my”).

Before you post any comments on this site, please carefully review this Privacy Policy. By posting comments on this site, you understand that your information will be collected, used, and disclosed as outlined in this Privacy Policy.

IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY, PLEASE DO NOT POST ANY COMMENTS ON THIS SITE.

Types and Uses of Personal Information

If you are browsing this site but not posting any comments on this site, no personal information is collected.

However, if you wish to post comments on this site, you would first need to complete Social Login on this site with one of the following Identity Providers: Google, Twitter, Facebook, Github.

Your name, language preference, and profile pictures will be shared with this site’s comment engine by the identity provider upon completion of the social login.

Comment Engine

I use Remark42 as this site’s comment engine. It is open source and privacy focused. It saves the minimum amount of information required to be able to show comments. Such information includes name, avatar (to be shown with comment message) and your id in service you used to login (to understand it’s still you when you log in next time). Id is hashed, there’s no easy way for me to identify the profile you used for login.

Find more details about Remark42’s privacy in here and be sure to check its source code in case you have further questions.

Aggregate Information (non-personally identifiable)

This site uses Google Analytics to collect aggregated information including browser information and site traffic statistics. Find more detail about Google Analytics privacy information here.

This site does not use any Web Banner or Online advertising.

Cookies

This website uses cookies to work properly. Cookies are small pieces of information your browser sends to server with every request. Here’s the list of cookies used on this website:

  • Google Analytics uses cookies for its analytics purposes.
  • When logging in to post a comment, comment engine requests two cookies: one to determine it’s still you; the other one is added as an information security measure against Cross-site request forgery.

If you reject cookies, you may still visit this site, but your ability to use some areas of this site, such as comments, will require logging in.
