How do we protect your information?

We have made your privacy our top priority. We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information.

  • We offer SSL only access to site. All communication between your browser and our server is fully encrypted. We don’t offer non-encrypted connection.
  • We don’t keep logs of IP addresses of registered users. (IP address is only needed at the time user is connected, our nginx proxy is not generating any logs and database is regularly anonymized)
  • We remove any personal data from photos you upload (IPTC, EXIF tags,…).

What is your data retention policy?

We will make a good faith effort to:

  • Delete all server logs containing IP address of registered members within one hour after they have logged out.
  • Delete any photo metadata contained in uploaded images before publishing them on the web.
  • Anonymize all user posts and delete user account upon user’s request.

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). These cookies enable the site to recognize your browser and, if you have a registered account, associate it with your registered account.

What do we use your information for?

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

  • To personalize your experience — your information helps us to better respond to your individual needs.
  • To improve our site — we continually strive to improve our site features based on the information and feedback we receive from you.
  • To send periodic emails — we will deliver only notifications that you request about changes to topics or in response to your user name, and/or other requests or questions.

Do we disclose any information to outside parties?

For your protection, we don’t use any 3rd party services of any kind (eg. traffic analyzers, ad networks). We do not sell, trade or transfer any of your information to third parties.
