Out of curiousity to who visits Demons.ninja, I use a stat counter that uses a tracking cookie that captures anonymous data from visitors so I can see where in the world people come from to visit my site, how many people come, and see what pages or articles they find of interest. The information is for my eyes alone and is never shared with any third party. 

If you have ever had a website and made use of a tracking service, you get hooked on the fun and information you can get about the visitors to your site; such data used to be more useful before the search engines decided to hide the keywords that visitors used to find you, as that let a webmaster know what people found interesting based on the time length people would stay on a certain page, and in general, use such info to make a more interesting site, give better content people were looking for if they did not stay very long, and so on. 

Now, however, that information is not available for free, and that leaves only getting the information if your pages are getting visited, and how often a day week or month. All the same, statistics through visitor counters still have value to see if your site is getting visited or not which is why I still make use of such stat counters, and have crafted this privacy page so you have clear understanding your privacy is respected at demons.ninja and while there is cookie tracking it is solely an anonymous tracking for my site's stats.

That said, here is the traditional 'Privacy Policy' language which reflects my privacy policy in the traditional legal language:
