I’m available via email if you have any questions or concerns. Please allow me a few days to respond as I get a lot of mail.
WriteFreely, the software that powers this site, is built to enforce your right to privacy by default.
It retains as little data about you as possible, not even requiring an email address to sign up. However, if you do give us your email address, it is stored encrypted in our database. We salt and hash your account's password.
Beyond this, it's important that you trust DJ (the person who runs FarkasCity). Software can only do so much to protect you — your level of privacy protections will ultimately fall on the humans that run this particular service.
Which is an excellent segue to the part of this written by me, DJ Chase.
Logging wise, this site runs a mostly-default installation of NGINX. It logs personally identifiable information such as your IP address, user agent, the URL visited, and referrer. Logs get rotated regularly. This information is not used except for anti-spam, troubleshooting, and network-monitoring purposes, and is not shared with third-parties unless required by law.
Besides that, FarkasCity also obviously stores data that you provide — such as your username, blog title, and posts — which may themselves be personally identifiable. This information is shared with third parties, as that is the nature of this service (because publishing is sharing).
