This document details the data the Vox Pupuli collects about you, why it is collected, what is done with it, and your options for how it’s processed.
The Vox Pupuli project does not share data with 3rd parties, except for hosting requirements (e.g. GitHub, YouTube) as detailed below, or when required to by law.
The website uses Cloudflare for securing the communication to the Vox Pupuli website.
The website does host a community run Blog series and may have the author’s name be visible in the blog post indefinitely.
Please note that due to the open source nature of the community, we may retain limited personally-identifiable data indefinitely.
The codebases also connect to a variety of external services for testing code, tracking issues/pull requests, GitHub notification management, etc:
GitHub may send notifications for each action you do via the website or the API to those services. All possible events are documented at GitHub.com
Using a VPN, or other IP/UserAgent masking servers will not affect your use of the project website as it is entirely static, however Tor may not work due to CloudFlare blocking Tor communication.
Your Groups.io account contains options to control what emails are sent to you. 3rd party services, such as GitHub retain their own policies and privacy options.
As part of ANY contribution to a Vox Pupuli project, you are acknowledging and agreeing that your name and email address will become embedded and part of the source code repository, which are all publicly available. You understand that the removal of this information would be impermissibly destructive to the project and the overall interests of those who contribute, utilize, and benefit from it. Therefore, in consideration of your participation in any project, you understand that retaining your name and email address, as described above, does not require your consent and that the right of erasure, as spelled out in the GDPR Article 17(1)b does not apply.
Where the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) applies to the processing of your personal data, you have the following rights, subject to certain limitations, against the Vox Pupuli Project:
If you would like to exercise any of these rights, you may do so by contacting the Vox Pupuli Project Management Committee on IRC or via email at [email protected]. Please understand that the rights above are not absolute in all instances.
