The personal website of Scott Murray


Terms and Conditions, Privacy and other site information


I created this site, in large part, to escape the gross disregard of user privacy exhibited by the large companies that dominate the modern web. I wanted to maintain the privacy and control of my email and other web services. I wanted to retain the ownership, rights and privileges to my photos, videos and other content. I wanted to be able to share content without exposing my friends, family and associates to broad violations of privacy and the very real dangers that come with it. With these goals in mind, I collect and/or store only the bare minimum of data necessary to make the site function.

How I protect your data

To the best of my ablility. I actively study and implement the latest best practices regarding data security. Passwords and other sensitive user data are encrypted. Connections are encrypted where appropriate.

What data breach procedures I have in place

I have automated logging in place that monitors access to all website data, with alarms alerting me to any unauthorized or unusual activity. I have implemented "kill switches" to enable a quick shutdown of all services in the event of an ongoing breach.
