Your privacy

Even though Kap is open-source and not in the business of monetizing the product itself nor your data, directly or indirectly, we feel it's important to share how we think about, collect and use insights we gain on how Kap is used through certain third party services.

The short version is that we respect your privacy, aim to give you as much choice and control as possible, and try to gather only the minimum amount of data absolutely necessary to help us make Kap better for you and everyone else.
