The site is the personal and technical blog of Andrea Binello which is dedicated to the software development field. All content on this site is exclusively developed by Andrea Binello and is licensed (except where otherwise noted) under a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 International License.

As end-user, I take great care of the privacy, not just only for myself but also for every person who is browsing my site. For this reason, I have tried to keep my site as simple as possible, and in particular:

  • This site does not contain advertising
  • This site does not contain “affiliate” links
  • This site does not contain “tracking” social buttons
  • This site does not make use of “analitics” functions (e.g. Google Analytics)

Despite this, some personal data is still collected by my site/hosting, as described in the following sections.

Collected data

The following sections describe what data is collected and how it is used.

On the Contact page

If you use the form available on the Contact page to contact me, you need to provide two personal informations:

  • Your name (a real name or nick-name, at your preference … I don’t care)
  • Your email address

These two informations will only be used to create a simple email which is sent to my inbox on this domain. All emails I receive are managed only through a webmail, and NOT downloaded using a “client” application. Thus, emails are entirely stored on the servers of my hosting (Siteground) and are kept for an indefinite time until I delete them for some reason (e.g. lack of space on my inbox).

Every email sent through the contact form also contains and shows the IP address of the user sending the message. This is only eventually used to check the provenance of potential spam/unwanted messages.

On the site in general

My hosting, as any other web hosting, collects some data about the user who is browsing my site, in particular:

These informations are generally only used for statistical reasons. For what I know, I cannot opt out this feature. However, I will not actively use these informations, unless there is clear evidence of an attack of some kind towards my site.

All pages on my site use Google Fonts, a free service from Google, used by millions of users, which provides high-quality typefaces for the web. Also Google Fonts collects some data about the user who is browsing my site. If you want to read more about this, please see Google Fonts Privacy Policy.


Cookies are small pieces of information that a web server sends to the user’s browser. Generally speaking, cookie are used for various purposes: preferences/configurations, session management, user tracking/profiling, etc…

Since my site is very simple as described above (no advertising, no analitics, etc…), it does not send tracking/profiling cookies to the browser, nor third-party cookies. However, it may send some technical cookies for the sole operation of the site.
