Please see our complete terms of service on our About page!
Here's information on our data retention and disclosure guidelines:
Infrastructure: vulpine.club is hosted by OwO Group LLC, a New York State corporation, at Linode's datacenter in Newark, New Jersey.
Software Integrity: vulpine.club runs the glitch.social fork of Mastodon with local modifications, published on Github. We do not knowingly have any "backdoors" or other alterations to default Mastodon behaviors. Production builds are generally performed in a clean environment on Docker Hub, although some special-case builds may be performed in a clean checkout on a development computer.
Data Security: Reasonable efforts are made to control access to privileged accounts and servers. However, Mastodon is not designed as a secure messaging service, and we cannot guarantee the security of your data. All user data are stored unencrypted. Persons with access to the underlying vulpine.club infrastructure agree to adhere to the Codes of Ethics of the League of Professional Systems Administrators and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers.
Data scraping is disallowed. Whether or not it is said in public, usage outside for any purposes outside of the original poster's intention is not acceptable
Data Retention: We retain everything that is posted, or that otherwise reaches our instance, indefinitely. In the event your account is deleted, your posts and personal information will be deleted from the live database. Once your information is received by other instances, it is no longer under our control and we cannot guarantee that it can be deleted or kept private.
We have the following retention goals for data kept by our infrastructure:
Third parties: "Media assets," such as pictures and videos attached to toots, avatars, header pictures, and static application resources, are hosted by Amazon Web Services and backed up periodically to a remote server.
Changed 2018-06-06 (rtucker): update software integrity to reflect our move to glitch-soc, mention builds are done on Docker Hub. update log retention (14 days -> 72 hours), be more specific about which backups are stored where. combine Logging and Backups sections into Data Retention. generally freshen and be more specific about data retention.
The Vulpine Club is a friendly and welcoming community of foxes and their associates, friends, and fans! =^^=
