Which and how data is collected and used

When using the Cryptomator Community, data about your usage of the forum is collected as follows:

When you use an account, the information you enter during registration and on your profile page is collected. The e-mail address you provide is used during account setup and management and for notifications you may configure.

We collect the contents of posts and messages you create and like, to make them available to the respective users. Information about other activity in the forum, e.g. bookmarked posts, are collected as well but not made available to others.

In addition usage information about the visited pages and navigation inside the forum is collected. This is done by using cookies and other information received in the HTTP requests send by your browser. The usage information of all users is aggregated into statistics to allow further analysis of the usage patterns. This data does no longer allow to identify you personally.

In addition administrators may anonymize your account. This is done by removing all personal data from your account and locking it afterwards. To not break existing conversations, existing, public posts remain in the forum but are no longer associated with you. In special cases administrators may do additional, fine grained deletions of specific data, like specific posts, edit history and such.
