It’s why we do what we do.
No data that is linked to you is collected or stored by us as you browse this site.
This site runs on Site.js.
Site.js collects aggregate access statistics that are ephemeral (they reset when the server restarts). This is mostly useful for us to see how much traffic the site is getting and notice broken links or the occasional misconfigured bot or hack attempt.
View latest ephemeral statistics.
When you sign the manifesto, we collect two types of data. Data about you and data about the signatory (which might also be you or it might be a project or organisation that you’re signing on behalf of).
(A) Data about you:
(B) Data about the signatory:
Data about you (A) is not displayed on the site and only used for the following purposes:
To know who is signing the manifesto on behalf of the signatory and to have a means to communicate with you should, for example, someone representing the signatory (e.g., project or organisation) inform us that you do not have permission to sign the manifesto on their behalf.
To send you transactional email to confirm your email address (to reduce the likelihood of spam/fraudulent signatures) and to inform you that your signature has been accepted and provide you with a link to delete your signature and the data about you (A) that’s linked to it should you want to in the future.
To reply to you should you contact us with questions or requests.
We will not use your name or email address for any other purpose although we may have to hand over the information should we receive a subpoena to do so. (Although what use it will be to anyone is beyond us as we store no other data about you.)
Data about the signatory (B) is displayed in the signatory list on the site.
If you sign the manifesto, we keep the data in Groups A and B for as long as your signature remains on the manifesto.
If you signed the manifesto, you will have received a confirmation email that contains a link you can follow to delete your signature.
Deleting your signature from the manifesto will also delete the linked data that is not displayed (your name and your email address).
If you lost your confirmation email with the deletion link, please email Laura and Aral at email@example.com from the address you used to sign the manifesto and we will delete it for you.

No. Emails are sent using code we’ve written that contacts your mail server directly.
(Email is actually quite a simple protocol and the needs of this site are very basic. See Aral’s video on How to send an email by manually talking to an email server if you’re into that sort of thing.)
Yes, of course.
