The BzDeck team respects your privacy.

Things you should know

Bugzilla API

BzDeck requires your Bugzilla user name to offer you a personalized Bugzilla experience. When BzDeck retrieves bugs, Ajax requests will be directly sent from your browser to the Bugzilla API server, and downloaded data will be locally stored in your browser using IndexedDB.

If you'd like to make changes to bugs, like leaving a comment or attaching files, you have to give BzDeck your Bugzilla API Key to authenticate against the Bugzilla API.

When you sign into the app, your Bugzilla account name (email address) and API key will be sent from Bugzilla to the BzDeck server through URL parameters as a result of the Bugzilla Authentication Delegation flow, and the information along with your IP address will be logged as part of the server's standard access log. We will never use or disclose your personally identifiable information to anyone else. You can revoke your API key anytime on Bugzilla.

Bugzilla activities

Note that most of your Bugzilla activities are publicly available on See also Mozilla's Websites Privacy Notice for your privacy.


BzDeck shares your email address with Gravatar to retrieve your avatar and profile.

Optional features

BzDeck may implement an ability to sync your preferences across multiple devices in the future. We'll announce a change to our privacy policy if we introduce such an opt-in feature.

Web analytics

We are currently not using any Web analytics tool, but there's a plan to install Piwik on our server.
