Queersin.space ("us", "we", or "our") operates the queersin.space website including all services associated with the Domain name (the "Service").
This page informs you of our policies regarding the collection, use, and disclosure of personal data when you use our Service, and the choices you have associated with that data.
We use your data to provide and improve the Service experience. By using the Service, you agree to the collection and use of information in accordance with this policy.
We process your data under Legitimate Interest. This means that we process your data only as necessary to deliver the Service, and in a manner that you understand and expect.
We also carry out processing that is necessary to provide our Service to you and processing that is necessary to comply with our legal obligations. Where consent is required by law in relation to certain processing, we will ask for your consent.
We process your information for the purposes of providing our decentralised, openly-federated and end-to-end encrypted communication Service, getting in touch with you, responding to your requests, ensuring the security of our Service and complying with the law.
The nature of the Service and its implementation results in some caveats concerning this processing, particularly in terms of GDPR Article 17 Right to Erasure (Right to be Forgotten). We believe these caveats (discussed in the Removal of Federated Data section below) are in line with the broader societal interests served by providing the Service.
In situations where the interests of the individual appear to be in conflict with the broader societal interests, we will seek to reconcile those differences guided by our policy.
You can request that we delete our copy of your messages, files and other data by instructing us to deactivate your accounts on our Service. You can do this by contacting us via email to email@example.com.
Under GDPR you have a right to request a copy of your data in a commonly-accepted format. If you would like a copy of your data, please send a request via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
You have rights in relation to the personal data we hold about you. Some of these only apply in certain circumstances. Some of these rights are explored in more detail elsewhere in this document. For completeness, your rights under GDPR are:
For more details about these rights, please see the guidance from the European Commission. If you have any questions or are unsure how to exercise your rights, please contact us via email (email@example.com).

We also collect information how the Service is accessed and used ("Usage Data"). This Usage Data includes information such as your computer's IP address, your browser's or client's user agent, the pages of our Service that you visit, the time and date of your visit, and other diagnostic data.
Queersin.space uses the collected data for various purposes:

If you wish to avoid reCaptcha, please contact us and we'll register you an account without the use of a captcha.
We may also transfer specific Personal Data to third-party services automatically, if it is required to implement the Service. This may include, but is not limited to:
When you request the deletion of your Personal Data or Content that has been transferred to a third-party service, we will make automatic Federation requests for that data to be deleted from the third-party service.
The third-party site is responsible for processing and respecting these requests. By giving us your Personal Data or Content, you agree that we do not control the third-party sites and cannot force them to remove any Federated Data that we have transferred to them.
Queersin.space may disclose your Personal Data in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to:
The security of your data is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Data, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
We have no control over and assume no responsibility for the content, privacy policies or practices of any third party sites or services.
