Privacy Policy

TL;DR – Privacy is a big deal. Your trust is important. I’m not a horrible person (as far as I know).

Jaywalking is a personal project. It is owned and operated by me, Jay Benfield, a human with a soul. This is my real name. My reputation and my integrity matter to me. I will not do anything sketchy or slimy in connection with your use of the website, or anything else, for any reason. Ever.


Jaywalking leverages Hyvor Talk – a slick and minimal privacy-focused comment system. Your account, comments, and other interactions with comments here are governed by the Hyvor Hyvor Privacy Policy. Jaywalking retains precisely zero of your comment-related data by design.

Google Analytics

Jaywalking is integrated with Google Analytics so that I can obsess over all manner of statistics and eye candy. It helps me understand how people use the site so I can optimize everything to death. All collected data is subject to the terms of the Google Privacy Policy.

Web Server

The web server and associated software responsible for making work captures details about your access to the site and any errors that you might encounter along the way. This includes a timestamp, your IP address, web browser and version, operating system, URL accessed, and other technical gobbledygook that is used to identify any technical issues or misconfigurations.

Personal Information

Apart from the use of your data as outlined above, any and all personal information you provide in connection with will not be shared, sold, or otherwise provided to any third party for any reason. That would be wrong and dickish.


Please email if you have any questions or concerns.
