About this site

Welcome to chrisdavidmiles.com.

This is a website where I share my opinions and publish technical guides. I also post reviews of products and sometimes use affiliate links.

This website is available at chrisdavidmiles.com and is mirrored at miles.cm and chrisdm326o2d7iq.onion.

Everything I write here is accurate to the best of my knowledge. Any humor or satire posts are labeled as such.

Table of Contents


Privacy is a topic I care very much about. I do my best to respect the privacy of site visitors and only collect data that is needed for the operation and improvement of this site and the online services I provide. Personal data collected by this website is not shared with advertisers or other third parties. This website does use some third-party tools that do collect data of their own as outlined below:

This website uses cookies for user sessions. (See also this website’s full cookie policy.)

If users post a comment, the website asks for their name and email address to differentiate between commenters.

I use Google Analytics to collect website traffic information to see what content is popular and to see how visitors are finding the site. (See also Google’s Privacy PolicyTerms of Service, and Transparency Reports.)

Automattic’s Akismet is used on this site to detect comment spam. (See also Automattic’s Privacy Policy.)

Invisible reCAPTCHA is sometimes used on comment forms and contact forms to weed out spam. (See also Google’s Privacy PolicyTerms of Service, and Transparency Reports.)

Cloudflare is used for load balancing, performance, and security on this website. Cloudflare and the server this website is hosted on both collect some data for security and performance reasons. (See also Cloudflare’s Privacy Policy, Terms of Service, and Transparency Reports.)

For a more comprehensive Privacy Policy of this site and associated services and tools, see my full Privacy Policy.


I sometimes include affiliate links in my posts when reviewing products and online services. (See also my full Affiliate Disclosure.)

I currently work for Bluehost, a WordPress hosting provider. This has given me experience dealing with WordPress at scale, and a lot of use cases for online apps and websites. But this website, chrisdavidmiles.com, is mine. And any opinions or content posted here represent my opinion, and not those of my employer.

Sometimes I use third party content like images or quotes in blog posts. For example I’ve used Pixabay and Unsplash to find royalty free images before. I try and make sure that any work that is not my own is always attributed by source or author, when used on this site.

I have never and will never use a “warrant canary” on this website. Warrant canaries have never been tested in court and their legal status remains dubious at best. This makes them largely ineffective in my opinion.


Speaking of legal opinions, there is no legal advice on this website. I am not a lawyer. Any of my opinions about laws, politics, or anything else, are not legal advice. The things I write about are intended to be information used for educational and entertainment purposes only. My blog is not a substitute for professional advice. I try to design this site to make it clear that this is someone’s personal website, so advice given on it is only a reflection of my opinions and nothing else.

I’m also not a doctor. So I can’t give medical advice. I can’t think of anything I’ve written on this site that could sound like medical advice, but just so it’s clear, do not accept anything written on this site as medical advice. Consult a doctor who graduated medical school for that kind of thing. 🙂
