Our privacy policy


Your personal info stays personal

If you fill in a form on our website, we’ll only use your details to get back in touch with you. We won’t pass them on to anyone else. Promise.

And if you sign up for our newsletter, you can unsubscribe whenever you want to.

Cookies* speed up your visit

That’s because they remember you in future. For example, if you’ve used our readability checker before, it won’t ask you for your name and email address the second time around.

We also track information like the country you’re in and the pages you look at, so we can keep making our site better. The data we see is completely anonymous.

We treat your data with care

We store our data locally on our own servers, and we don’t share it with any third parties. If we ever have a security breach that affects your data, we’ll let you know what’s happened as soon as we can.

A lot of visitors to our site live in Europe, so we follow the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). And you can ask us to delete your data whenever you want to.

We’re here if you need us 

Our privacy policy isn’t set in stone, and we might change it if we need to. If you have any questions, email us here.

* Why are cookies called cookies?

Some say the metaphor comes from fortune cookies, with a hidden message stored inside – just like how cookies store info. Some think it comes from Hansel and Gretel, scattering cookie crumbs through the forest. And others say a biscuit-obsessed programmer created a pop-up that only closed when you typed in ‘cookie’, to annoy his co-workers. (That’s our favourite theory.)

 

We use cookies to make our site better.
