Privacy Policy

This page explains how and when your personal data is collected, processed and used when accessing wiki.nephatrine.net.

In the following text we use “we” to refer to this website and its owners (i.e. the Data Controller) and “you” to refer to users accessing the website (i.e. the Data Subject).

This text was written to be short and easy to understand by someone who is not a lawyer.

Server Logs

We log each page access. This log will also contain some personal data:

  • Your IP Address
  • Your Browser Identification
  • The URL You Came From (i.e. Referrer)
  • The URL You Were Accessing

This information is necessary for legal reasons and to analyse and prevent abuse. This allows us to keep users away who try to crash our server or to have necessary evidence in case of illegal or criminal activity.

Our server logs are automatically deleted after 7 days, but may persist in our server backups for 30 days. We will only keep log files longer when they are needed as evidence during an investigation.

User Profile

When you register for an account, we require the following minimal data:

  • Your Username
  • Your Email Address
  • Your Password

We also have a requirement that all users must sign in through a third-party such as Google or Github to verify their identity. We do not gain access to your account or credentials on that third-party platform, but the token received from it is associated to your local account for verification.

All other data is optional. You can delete your profile at any time.

Commit History

When you contribute to a Git repository, some of your personal data is associated with each commit.

  • Your Name or Username
  • Your IP Address

This is required to detect unauthorized commits and properly assign copyright/credits to individuals. This data is not expunged should you delete your account (in the interest of maintaining public records and assigning copyright/licensing). Due to the technical underpinnings of Git, removing such data is also not technically feasible without breaking compatibility with all clones or forks of the Git repository.

Third-Parties

Google Analytics

Google Analytics is a popular free tool to track how users use a web page. It tracks, for example, where users came from, which pages they looked at and how long they stayed on the site. This information is useful to us to understand our users better and improve the service.

We enable the Anonymize IP feature which only sends Google a truncated version of your IP. Google's servers do see your full IP address though, because the analytics script is downloaded directly from them. They promise not to use that though – we trust them.

Google Analytics also uses a cookie to track if you visit a website more often.

You can easily opt out of being tracked at all using their Browser Plugin or most ad-blockers.
