Signing up or authenticating to my services 🔑

When you create a user account or otherwise authenticate yourself (eg: joining my Minecraft server) your personal information, related to your account and all data associated with it, is stored to provide you with the service.
All services, where you may need to authenticate yourself, are hosted in Germany and are fully managed by me. This means that your personal data is protected under German privacy laws and is never going to be shared with third-parties.

Public Data 📖

Not all personal data is considered private. Data that is considered public may be freely available and not protected.
Data that is not considered private:

CryptPad: Documents you share can be decrypted by anyone with the access link.
Gitea: Information you set to be public on Gitea will be freely available for everyone to see.
Open Trashmail: Received mail on my Open Trashmail server can be viewed by anyone who knows the used address.
Minecraft server: Public chat messages as well as all interaction with the map is considered public. Your interactions can be seen by anyone on the server and anyone looking at the online map. Furthermore, anyone can download the Minecraft map on the website.
This does not apply to private messages, server logs, player data and server-side processes, because they are not publicly accessible.

Analytics and Tracking 👀

Nope, nothing here.
You are not being tracked and your behaviour is not being analyzed.

Cookies 🍪

You might have noticed that there is no cookie pop-up or GDPR banner on here. This is because the above-mentioned cookies, used by my services, are essential for providing the service and are strictly functional. These kinds of essential cookies do not require an annoying banner.
