Data privacy in the EU / Germany - where does the data go?

Unread postby Tom » 27 Jan 2014, 18:36

Hi there,
I'm really interested in cleantalk, especially since I saw in the test phase that it works great.

Now I was digging a little deeper, and found out that regarding the german law (… I'm located in Germany) you are not allowed to send user data like the IP adress uncrypted. At least not outside Germany, I guess … (I'm still learning the exact laws.)
Now I saw that one of your servers is actually located in Germany.

Is there maybe the option to make sure that the data is only transferred there? Do you have any information or plans regarding the privacy policys that are in the EU?

I guess this is a really big issue, and I would like to know the exact facts before signing up for the service. (… maybe also some ready-to-copy texts fot the privacy policy that every website must have?)

Thanks,
Tom

Hello, Tom!

Can you please provide a URL privacy in Germany? We should dig this too.

At the moment you can use server URL: http://moderate4.cleantalk.ru to work with service only in Germany. But in the future I think we should switch all customers to SSL connections with servers.

You can find privacy policy in the page bellow, please see title "Privacy policy".

Thank you for questions and feedback, we will try provide legal service for EU customers!

Hello Denis,

this post ist more than 2 years old now. I purchased pro allready and use your plugin while developing a big wordpress blog. To push your plugin through IT-Security from customer, we need details about how you process the commenters/visitors data:

- what data exaclty do you collect?
- to which physical location / country the comment / form data will be send to and stored?
- how long the data is stored?

Background: In Germany the storage of user data in foreign countries without anomyzing them is a big issue.

Thank you for sorting that out

Best Regards
Daniel
