Project:Privacy policy

From 🏳️‍⚧️☕️

We believe in, and respect your right to privacy. Therefore, we have taken great lengths to protecting your rights, including privacy. We believe that everyone, not just lawyers should be able to read documents that relates to them. We believe that you should not have to share any personally identifying nonpublic information to access essential content and pages. We do not believe that you should be any age or race or gender to access information of any kind, and we do not believe that anyone should have to reveal any element of one's life over the internet, ever.

Text displayed in square brackets ([]) are not a part of this policy.


Here's some of the key terms that can help you understand this policy.

When we say... We mean...
"Privatus Research", "Privatus Research Limited", "We", "Us", "Our" Privatus Research Limited, a Delaware corporation, its subsidiaries, contractors, and service providers.
"Sites", "Services" DIYHrt.Cafe
"You", "Your"
You! The visitor of this website!
"Contributions" Whenever you submit an edit to the website. This includes, but is not limited to, when you update, change, delete, or add a message to talk/discussion pages.
"Personal information" Information, that is nonpublic, and may personally identify you.
Examples includes, but is not limited to your name, address, telephone number, email address, password, IP address, or the presence of a cross-site tracking token.

What does this policy cover?

This policy covers the services provided on DIYHrt.Cafe, but does not include data collected, and processed by Cloudflare, our DNS provider.

What types of data do we collect?

Personal data (usually referred to just as "data" below) will only be processed by us to the extent necessary and for the purpose of providing a functional and user-friendly website, and service.

We do not, and will not for the foreseeable future, add advertisements, trackers, analytic software that collects personal information, without you clearly opting-in and consenting to such activity.

When you visit a page of our site...

When you visit a page of our site, your browser will choose what information gets sent to us. Generally, that contains your IP address, user agent, and a few more things depending on your browser. Generally, unless if you conduct an action listed below, it will not be logged. We may collect some personal information for analytical purposes. This process is privacy-preserving and cookie-less. If you consent, your information will be processed by Usermaven Inc., and will only be used for analytical purposes only. It will not be transferred to any other third parties.

When you contribute...

Thanks for contributing! We welcome contributions, provided that they are constructive! When you submit a contribution, you you are creating a permanent, public record of the content altered by you. The page history will show the contribution you made, the time you made the contribution, the edit summary you provided, whether if the edit is marked minor or not, and your username.

If you are not logged in, your IP address will be shown in lieu of your username to ensure accountability for nonconstructive edits. Please do not contribute any information that you are uncomfortable making permanently public, like revealing your real name or location in your contributions.

When you create an account...

Us: Do you want to create an account?

You: Yes? Us: That's great to hear!

You: No? Us: No problem at all!

You do not need to create an account to read or edit (many pages) of this wiki! However, there are rare exceptions when you might need to create an account.

When you create an account, you are providing us with the information that you filled out in the registration form, and nothing more. Your IP address might be logged, if abuse risks and levels are high during that period of time.

Be careful though - We cannot delete your account, for both technical and legal reasons. However, we can rename your account, but your old actions and username will be preserved in public logs for prosperity.


When you upload a file, in addition to receiving the file, we also receive the metadata of the file. The metadata of the file might show when you took the photo, what camera you used to take the photo, and more. You are advised to remove the metadata before you upload the file, if you are uncomfortable with sharing the metadata of a file.

Cookies and Other Local Storage

We use cookies to make our website work. That's it.

How do we use the information we collected?

We use the information we collected to:

  1. Help share your contributions with the world
  2. Provide you with different settings, if you choose to set some.
  3. Ask you to complete a optional, privacy-preserving survey
  4. Fight spam, nonconstructive edits, scams, and fraud.

When can we share your information?

When you allow, or ask us to.

We may share your information with an organization, provided that you agree. Whenever we ask you to share personal information outside of Privatus Research Limited, we will usually, but not always, display this symbol: .

When we receive a valid legal order.

When we say legal order, we mean a court order, not a random person threatening to sue us if we don't turn over your information. We will access, use, preserve, and/or disclose your Personal Information if we reasonably believe it necessary to satisfy a valid and legally enforceable warrant, subpoena, court order, law or regulation, or other judicial or administrative order. However, if we believe that the order is legally invalid or is abusing the legal system, we will do our best to fight it. When we receive a legal request, we try to inform you, to the best of our legal and ethical ability, that the order has been received, and what we will be doing about that. Be aware that this notification may be public, if we cannot find an alternative method to contact you.

When we, for some reason, change ownership.

When we, for some reason, change ownership, or went under major restructuring, your data may be transferred to the new owners of this business, as along as we believe that the sharing of data is in the best interests of the project, and you.

To protect you, our services, or others

We may disclose your personal information if we believe it is necessary to prevent or address potential spam, malware, fraud, abuse, or other concerns, ethical, moral, technical or legal.

Or perhaps, because you made it public.

Anything you post on this website, is inherently, public, and we would have access to it, because, well, it's public. This is a wiki, after all. Stay safe. Think before you edit!

How do we protect your information?

As we say, "There is no hack-proof system. Anything can, and will be hacked by someone with the resources, motivation, and time."

We strive for data security, through a variety of measures, both physical and technological. However, there is no guarantee that your data will be secure and private. Hopefully, we will never be compromised. However, with such a service, that is a valuable target from various political, religious, criminal, or otherwise evil forces, it is likely that we will be attacked, one day.

How long do we keep your data?

We keep your data for however long it takes for us to process your request. Usually, for example, when you visit our website, we might hold your IP address for a few milliseconds, and it would be dumped into /var/null, and destroyed for good. However, for example, with a contribution, it might be around for however long this website will be around.

Your Rights

As we have stated above, if you wish to execute any of these rights, message us through the talk page of the user Administrator. If you prefer to let us know you wish to execute your rights privately, email us at [email protected] and we will reach out to you to inform you of your options, and execute your wish congruent to this policy.

Do Not Track signals

Some browsers and systems may send a "Do not track" signal to website, indicating that they do not wish to be tracked. We believe that everyone's privacy is protected through this privacy policy, and that we do not have any trackers. Therefore, we do not respond to "Do Not Track" signals.

Changes to this policy

Because life, things, and the world changes, this policy might change as well. No substantial changes will be made without a public comment period of 5 days, and a notification of 3 days before the change comes into force.

For minor changes, such as grammar, spelling, typographical, administrative, or contact changes we may change them without notification, or a public comment period.
