What About Payment Information?
This site uses Stripe to collect payment for subscriptions. Credit card information is not kept by this site, apart from the last four digits of the card number to help you with identification. Stripe does a much better job of storing your credit card information securely. We do keep standard billing information (i.e., your address) in order to produce the invoices when you pay for your subscription. However, this information will never be sold, exchanged, or given to a third party other than Stripe, and then only for the purposes of processing your payment.
If you choose to not purchase a subscription through Stripe, you can still use hexameter.co, just with ads on certain pages. These ads are provided through Google's Adsense, and no individual tracking data is shared with hexameter.co. Google Analytics is used to help the site learn more about which pages are more or less popular, and how big in general the audience of hexameter.co is.
Your privacy is exceptionally important, and we are grateful that you considered signing up for a site like this. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email us.
