I can’t believe I’m having to write this code in a fucking web server. What a mockery of the web, human rights, and the GDPR.

@aral I don't suppose you'd know if adding these header policies to HTML meta tags would work? I have a few websites that use GitHub and GitLab (.com) Pages, and I don't think I can alter the headers coming from the server.

I've at least updated all my other websites with this! Thanks again for the heads-up!
