Who can access my files?¶
Only you (and the people you explicitly choose to share with) have access to your files.
Does Varasto phone home?¶
No, except for update checking.
This is done to tell you if there is a better version available (displayed in server UI), and possibly to alert you if there are critical security updates available.
This version check request doesn't contain any additional data other than what is required to do the check:
|Data||Example||Used for analytics1||Why we send this|
|OS||Linux||☑️||So we can tell you the latest version for your OS|
|Architecture||x86-64||☑️||So we can tell you the latest version for your architecture|
|Current version||20200418_1637_fa31fb5e||☐||So we can tell you if your version contains critical vulnerabilities|
|IP address||220.127.116.11||☐||One can't check for updates (or use the internet) without revealing one's IP address|
You can audit the version checking code yourself.
The data we record about Varasto users¶
Since this is a paid offering, we have to keep your billing details on file, and of course an email to reach out to you for important updates.
Varasto website visitors¶
We don't use any analytics except for aggregate request counts.
If you sign up for Varasto newsletter, we can see your email address. We won't sell your email address ever, and only use it for purposes stated in the newsletter's description.
To gather metrics like "Active Varasto users on Linux/x86-64" so we know which platforms to focus our development efforts on. ↩
