What information we collect and how we use it
When you visit the Site, we don’t log any information about your visit on the server (technically, S3 bucket). We also don’t load any 3rd party scripts tracking your indiviual behavior across multiple channels, like A/B testing tools, social network or sharing buttons, and so on.
We simply don’t measure your
engagement with our brand because we believe this is always in violation of your privacy, and ultimately meaningless.
The Site uses Google Analytics, which provides us with anonymized information about our users (such as IP address, browser version, and so on) and how they use the Site. We use this information to make the Site better. The collected IP addresses are truncated before being sent to Google, making them anonymized. Google Analytics also sets cookies.
If you have Do Not Track activated in your browser, or if you rejected our cookie banner, we don’t collect any information and won’t load anything from Google at all.
You can verify our technical implementation by looking into the Site’s repository source code.
If you use the contact forms or CLA form on our website, the information you submit is collected by:
If you want to contribute to the project, you must complete our Contributor License Agreement (CLA). We will store your completed CLA, including the personal information you include on it. We may use that personal information to contact you or to enforce the terms of the CLA.

How information is shared
We will not share or sell the identifiable personal information we collect or generate except as defined in this section.
We may share non-personal or aggregate information, such as usage statistics for the Site.
On the Site, only Google Analytics sets cookies. We have to set a cookie of our own though, for remembering acceptance or rejection of our cookie banner.
Again, if you have Do Not Track activated in your browser, or if you rejected our cookie banner, we don’t collect any information and won’t let Google set any cookies in your browser.
If you reject the cookie banner, all cookies set by Google Analytics for the Site will be removed from your browser.
Updating your personal information or revoking consent
You may ask us to correct or update your personal information if you cannot update it yourself. You may ask us to delete your personal information unless we are under a legal obligation to store it. If you revoke consent to store your personal information, it will be deleted.
If you want to correct or update your personal information, or revoke your consent you can email us at [email protected].
If we are involved in a merger, acquisition, or sale of all or a portion of our assets, your personal information may be transferred as part of that transaction. If this happens we will post a notice on the News section of the Site to advise of any change of control or use of personal information or files, and of any choices you may have regarding the information.

- Comply with a law, regulation, or mandatory request such as a warrant or court order.
