"Do Not Track" now supported by IB

Hi everyone

Inkbunny now supports the "Do Not Track" feature which is becoming widely supported by modern browsers.

This tells our web tracker that you do not want your browsing data included in our site usage statistical analysis. Note that our tracker can only track what pages you are viewing on Inkbunny, and cannot tell what you do outside Inkbunny.

We host our own web tracker on our own server so there is no third-party (like Google Analytics, for example) seeing your IB browsing history and storing it elsewhere.

We never share this data and we use it only to see what pages of the site are viewed the most, and how users generally navigate through the site. The data is combined in to graphs without any specific data on individual users and this is only viewed by our site admins.

User browsing data is stored only for a few days before being aggregated in to these graphs and it is then deleted.

But in the the spirit of protecting your privacy and encouraging other sites to support this feature, we thought we'd point out this opt-out option!

For more information on what it is and how to enable it in Firefox, check out https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-do-i-turn-do-n...

Most of the latest versions of the top browsers have this option or it will be coming soon. Check the online documentation for your browser if you can't find it!

Sounds like the main thing you use your tracker for is just the Popular section of the frontpage. It's all good Inkbunny, I'm not worried

I don't mind aggregated tracking as long as it isn't personalized :3
The main question with all trackings is:
- is it being used to manipulate the user in some way
- being used to optimize site useability

I wouldn't say IB is going to manipulate me :P

We use it to make you all look at more ponies!

I'm leaving mine okay, then! (Upon looking at the extra-tracker-blocking addon Ghostery I have active, it seems it has been blocking Inkbunny's tracking all along. Well, now its domain whitelist has a single entry!! :D)

Good for you guys!
I honestly wouldn't mind IB tracking what I do and see here on the site, unfortunately, I do not trust the larger majority of the web in general, and it's an all or nothing proposition at this point.
My browser does not offer a 'whitelist' option for sites I trust, therefore I'm afraid you'll have to do without my information.

much respect,

Like Kogen said, basically, I don't mind if I'm being tracked as long as I know I'm being tracked, what information is being collected, and what it's being used for. If it's just basic stuff used to improve the site or something like IB here does, then fine. I don't mind that. :3 But it's still good to have DNT supported!

I have DNT+ installed for Firefox, and in the time it's been on, it's blocked almost 23,000 items, just on my desktop alone. :S

Hahahaha, Ghostery was already blocking IB's Piwik module at my side. So no 1984 for me at IB |=(:þ

Such a lovely Addon~ |=(|3

Addition: Still, for the less tech-savy, but privacy-caring persons, it's a good initiative to support 'Do Not Track'~ |=(:3

And you're seriously suggesting that blocking an analytic module (on any site) prevents the owner from "tracking" you?

Most companies now days use webserver log importing that is than amended with the extra information that Javascript modules provide if they wish to do so. IE: http://piwik.org/log-analytics/

Don't be so foolish, they can still track you if they want, Do not Track or otherwise, Ghostery or otherwise.

How do you think Inkbunny gathered usage information before they installed Piwik? I love the ill-informed arrogance of some people, but don't let me break you're false sense of security.

Of course they could gain info from their webserver logs, but the use of Do not Track or otherwise, Ghostery or otherwise, will disturb the profiling of persons and thus the advantage of tracking.
9 years, 10 months ago
Disturb the profiling of person's? How does it disturb anything when the bulk of the information is already in server logs?

The sorts of things the Javascript module tells you (that the logs wont) are things like browser screen resolution. (And for an art site that's actually useful information)

I love that you have your head up your ass!

Feel free to keep talking but please stop making yourself look like a complete douche while so doing. At least spell all your words correctly when you're trying to look smart.

As someone who has a background in security of systems, I do find great pleasure informing people of how wrong they are when they arrogantly "boast" about how certain things don't apply to them. People need to wake up and not be completely oblivious to what they are using, hence I intentionally burst bubbles when I see them and won't apologise for doing so.

Your comment however fails to address any the meaningful content in my comments, instead, you appear (and rightly so I suspect) to be a worthless, immature troll wannabe who'd rather focus on spelling.

Lastly, go fuck yourself, for someone who sees fit to attack how I came across, you're not doing much better.

You are awesome.

for most of us, this means more pr0n and less deleating histories ;)

The one website honest enough to implement this,
Is the one I don't mind tracking me.
Murphy's law. \=)

I trust IB, not FA.

I'm fine with your tracking :]
