Privacy Policy - v0.1 #

What information do we collect? #

What do we use your information for? #

Any of the information we collect from you may be used in the following ways:

How do we protect your information? #

We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information when you submit or access it. Among other things, your password is hashed using a strong one-way algorithm, and your browser session (as well as any traffic between your applications and the server or between federated servers) is secured with SSL. We recommend enabling two-factor authentication to further secure access to your account.

What is our data retention policy? #

We will make a good faith effort to retain server logs containing the IP address of all requests to this server, in so far as such logs are kept, no more than 90 days.

You can request and download an archive of your content, including your follow lists, posts and media attachments.

You may irreversibly delete your account at any time.

Do we use cookies? #

Yes. Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computer’s hard drive through your Web browser (if you allow it). These cookies enable the site to recognise your browser and, if you are logged in, associate it with your account. We also use cookies to save your preferences for future visits.

Do we disclose any information to outside parties? #

We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information. This does not include trusted third parties who assist us in operating our site, conducting our operations, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We may also release information when it is required to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ourselves or others’ rights and safety.

Your content may be sent to or downloaded by other servers in the federated network. Your public profile and activities are delivered to the servers where your followers reside, while mentions-only posts and messages are delivered to the servers of the recipients (in so far as those followers or recipients reside on a different server than yours). We can make no guarantees about how third-party servers will handle your information.
