Advertisements do nothing but involuntarily generate money and annoy people. Since we have no plans on monetizing from any of our work, there isn’t any internal interest in implementing advertisements for our benefit. We want to provide you a platform that you can feel safe reading on, free from any interference.
Log files and Cookies
Like most websites, we collect information from user generated log files. Other websites may use this information for generating ad revenue by selling the data to third parties, however we have no use for them. Log files and cookies are automatically cleared at set intervals during the day since on a basic reading platform they serve no use.
