We may collect non-personally identifiable information about you in the course of your interaction with our site. This information may include technical information about the browser or type of device you're using.

Our content delivery network (CDN) is Cloudflare. We use their service to provide an extra layer of security (DDoS protection, WAF rules, etc.), improve site reliability, and optimize our users' performance via a low latency static content caching policy at the network edge. Anonymized browser information, IP addresses, DNS lookups, session information, and static user generated content (images and text) may be stored and transmitted via the Cloudflare network.
Object storage, which includes image attachments, videos, etc., is hosted with Cloudflare R2.

We are committed to ensuring that any information you provide to us is secure. In order to prevent unauthorized access or disclosure, we have put in place suitable measures and procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect.

Be aware that we are not responsible for information once it has been federated, nor can we verify that other fediverse nodes respect a request to delete your information.
