What data do we collect?
We collect the following data, depending on the services you use:
Personal identification information (Name, email address, phone number)
This does not apply to all services, but usually, we require an email address on sign-up.
Service access information (IP addresses, User-Agent strings, date and time)
This does apply to all services.
How do we collect your data?
You directly provide us with all data we collect. We collect and process data when you:
- Register online with any of our services
- Voluntarily complete an online form or send us an email
- Authenticate (login or register) with any of our services
- Voluntarily upload files
- (Limited to service access information) Access any of our services at all
We may also receive the following data indirectly from Gravatar.com and Libravatar.org:
- Profile pictures associated with your email address when you register
How will we use your data?
We collect data so we can:
- Provide you with notifications to the services you use
- Verify that you are not a simple web bot that creates a bunch of spam accounts on our services
- Analyze Denial of Service attacks on our services
Additionally, the following usage applies to third-party services:
Request your profile pictures from Gravatar.com and Libravatar.org.
In this case, we do not send your email address verbatim to these third-parties. Instead, we generate a hash checksum that cannot be reversed to directly your email, and make a request to check whether you stored any profile pictures under that email address without your email address being revealed to these two third-parties if you did not sign up for them.
How do we store your data?
We securely store your data at a data center in Düsseldorf, Germany. We have security measures in place that prevent unauthorized access to our servers.
- We will keep your personal identification information for as long as needed to verify your identity for and/or authenticate with our services. For verification purposes alone, this means until right after you have clicked a confirmation link in an email. For authentication purposes, this means until you delete the associated account(s) on our services. Once this time period has expired, we will delete your data by purging it from our databases immediately. Note that if used for authentication purposes, this data may stay in backups for up to 7 days before being finally purged.
- We will keep your service access information for exactly 96 hours after your last access in the form of logs. Once this time period is expired, the this information is immediately purged. One notable exception: If you accessed a service during a time of a Denial of Service, it will be stored for up to 7 days. During this time, we will analyze the amount of requests made of each IP address. If your IP address exceeds normal usage during this time, the logs related to it will be kept as evidence. If it doesn’t, we will immediately proceed with purging the IP address as usual. In the meantime, contact us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
