Privacy policy

What data is collected

Kausi receives your email address and password when you sign up for or sign in to the site. They are not stored by Kausi, but are passed on to the Firebase authentication system.

Similarly, whenever you create a text entry in Kausi that text is submitted to the Firebase Realtime Database, where it is stored in plain text. Firebase encrypts this plain text on their servers.

What the data is used for

Your email address and password are used to authenticate with Firebase.

If you request a password reset, Firebase will send a password reset link to your email address.

Your data is not used for anything else.

How your data is protected

All traffic between your browser and Firebase happens on a HTTPS-secured connection.

Any Kausi administrator accounts are able to view your email address and text entries. These accounts use all the account security options Firebase offers, including a strong password stored in secure password manager software.

At the time of writing there is only one such administrator account, operated by Joni Korpi, sole developer and also the designated Data Protection Officer.

How cookies and localstorage are used

Firebase uses localstorage to temporarily store data related to authentication. Kausi itself does not use any cookies or localstorage.

Data disclosure to third parties

Your data is stored in Firebase and is therefore subject to their policies. Kausi does not disclose your data to any other party for any other reason.

Your consent

By using Kausi, you consent to this privacy policy.

Changes to this policy

If this privacy policy changes, we will post the changes on this page, send an email notifying you of any changes, and/or update the Privacy Policy modification date below.

The data resides in Firebase, in the United States. Firebase is owned by Google and their terms of service can be found here.

Every user has the right to inspect and remove their data, as well as request corrections to their data. Users can contact for assistance with inspecting or removing their data.
