What are our principles?
For everyone at notsyncing.net, protecting the personal data of our users is of the utmost importance. We make sure to collect as little data as possible and protect what we collect to the best of our abilities.
To provide a good experience while respecting each individual's privacy preferences, some features of the site which cause additional data to be collected or transmitted can be enabled or disabled on the Privacy Control Panel. By default, it is configured to transmit and collect as little data as possible.
By contacting us using the contact information provided above, you may
- retrieve all information we store about you
- have us correct personal data we store about you
- have us delete all personal data about you
- prevent us from using personal data for processing (in case the information may not yet be deleted due to lawful constraints)
- revoke any permissions given by you about the processing of your data

What data do we collect, and what for?
We try to collect as little information about our users as possible. Still, some data must still be collected in order to provide the services. This section will outline what we collect and why.
In order for the Internet (and therefore this service) to function, various identifying elements need to transmitted (for example the IP address of the user's computer). This information is accessible by third parties (e.g. the internet service provider or computing center) during the transmission through their infrastructure. Without this information, the service could not be provided. Notsyncing.net uses TLS encryption for as many of its services as possible to reduce the amount of information that can be extracted by third parties.
Additionally, the web server application will receive additional information (for example which site has been requested, the browser version, etc.) that is transmitted by the web browser from the user. This information is used only to fulfill the request and the corresponding data is deleted as soon as the connection to the server is closed. No records of the browsing activity are created.
Anonymous page hit statistics
Each time you visit a page on this site, a counter for that specific page is incremented. All identifying information about the access (IP address, browser, etc.) is discarded. It is therefore not possible to track which pages you visited on this site with this information.
Apart from this, no information is collected about your visit to this site.
Disclosure of information to third parties
No information personal will be forwarded or otherwise made visible to any other third party (including full publication), unless explicit consent has been acquired beforehand, or unless it is required to comply with European law. Please note that some data will be passed on to third parties when activating external content on the site as outlined below.
What about cookies?
Cookies can, at any time, be deleted by the end user using the corresponding feature provided by the web browser. Most browsers will also provide a feature to prevent the setting of cookies in order to avoid this data from being stored in the first place.
How do we protect your data?
We regularly update the software on our servers in order close any known vulnerabilities. Access to all systems used to process data are protected using technical and physical measures. Important communications are encrypted (TLS, PGP) to prevent data to be read by third parties during the transmission. Access to data centers is strictly controlled by the hosting provider.
However, please keep in mind that both parties, the provider and the user, need to employ data security measures. A perfectly secured server can not protect a vulnerable client from leaking information. So make sure to always keep your client applications (web browser, email client, ...) up to date and follow common security practices.
The most important external resources will be quickly introduced in the following.
Contact via Email / IM / ...
When contacting us via any of the means provided above, we will store your contact information (e.g. email address) and the content of the message you sent. We will never share this information with any third parties, unless explicit consent is given. This communication can be protected by technical means (PGP, OTR, ...) for additional privacy.
In case you still have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us via any of the means provided above. We are happy to explain to you in detail which data we collect for each of your actions on this site.
