at EnFoid we always engage in Transparency to provide trust and to be Fair.
Here is how we collect, use, and handle your personal information when you use our websites, software, and services.
There has been in the recent years a lot of tumult around privacy in general and especially in the internet, but instead of delivering education to non-professional masses, hysteria is being created by media, press, legislative and executive forces plus new laws being abused by greedy people.
This is most definitely NOT the turnout Tim Berners-Lee had in mind back in 1989.
But yet, here we are, struggling to understand what is serious and what not, suffocate in the wilderness of regulation, mixing useful sharing of information with sharing of potentially sensitive or dangerous informations.
As example an IP-Address is (according to GDPR) Personal Information as it "can" be used to identify a living person directly or indirectly. But so is the number on your front door, with the difference that you're not getting a new house number once you disconnected from the internet and connect back again.
Another example are cookies (used to store related informations in a one way fashion on your local computer), this does NOT mean that you grant wide access to your computer by accepting cookies, what you do is allowing to store information that can identify you on your computer, which gives you the full power over it, as you can just delete it if you do not want to be "identified anymore". Would you rather have the data to identify you stored on a different place outside of your control and knowledge ? instead on your local computer ?
The moment you connect to the internet, you will be subjected to "some" identification or profiling, as you do expose yourself, just like you hang a sign in front of your house showing your name and the house number. Everyone passing by, will be able to read it without your consent, and may even assume somethings (profiling) about you based on the given informations and the surroundings.
Educators, the Law and Media fail to bring "living persons" (as the GDPR describes you) close to the fact that anonymity can only be established in a group, the larger the group the more anonym you are. and the internet is most likely the largest "group" that has ever existed, even larger than countries and governmental reach.
With all that being said, we at EnFoid have always respected out clients privacy, and have this as one of out top priorities since day 1.
We may share information as shown below, but we won’t sell it to advertisers or other third parties.
