I am no law expert, but law is a kind of code that is executed (actually, I think the established word is interpreted) by loosely specified and probably inconsistent hardware: humans.
I also believe that even for a static, personal website, having (reasonable) legal terms is better, for many sensible definitions of better, than having none.
So here you go.
Terms and Conditions
The following terms and conditions govern all use of the website at sebastien.rouau.lt, the HTTP server answering on ports 80 and 443, and all content available at this website (taken together, the "Website").
The Website is owned (excepted third-party logos, see below) and operated by Sébastien Rouault (any singular first person pronoun hereafter).
The Website is offered subject to your acceptance without modification of all the terms and conditions contained herein (taken together, the "Agreement").
To the extent permitted by law:
- Despite my best efforts to keep every piece of information up-to-date, you accept there is no warranty of accuracy for any of the content available on the Website.
You also understand that the ideas expressed on the Website are my own and not those of my past, present, or even future employers or collaborators.
- You accept that the Website might not serve some of your requests, or that the Website might not always follow the HTTP protocol (e.g. it can reset TCP connections instead of returning error codes) when answering your requests.
You agree I do not assume responsibility for any damage resulting from your use of the Website.

Contact addresses are given above.
This website does not use HTTP cookies at all, or any tracking technology.
Solely for security purpose, the HTTP server answering your browser/HTTP client may log your IP address (or the IP address of your proxy), when the server answered your browser/HTTP client, and any component of the HTTP request your client sent for 1 year.
Reasonable technical measures are in place to ensure the confidentiality of these logs.
These logs may be used and shared with third-parties to investigate potential security violations.
