I bet it's been a while since you saw a Privacy Policy that was fun to read!

Since we (daplie) believe that the job of this document is to benefit our customers, not lawyers (unless they happen to be our customers or our defense at law), and since when other lawyers do read documents like this their goal is more to argue against common sense, to mince words and generally make us look bad (and by that time all that really matters is who is throwing more money around anyway) we decided to write this policy for normal people instead of writing it for lawyers.
(no offense to our lawyer, we think of you as a relatively normal person and we hope that you never have to defend us, but that if you do that we'll have lots of money to throw around)


Updated 2016-12-12 (Dec '16)

This privacy policy applies to daplie.com and oauth3.org.
(for legal reasons we'll explicitly clarify that "we" and "daplie" refer to Daplie, Inc a Utah C Corp)


Summary

  • We like you and want to make your world a better place
  • We believe that homes are sacred spaces and we are extra careful with our in-home products
  • We are aware that the public Internet is a not sacred space (hence we create in-home products)
  • Please don't tell us things that you don't want us to know
  • We believe in upholding the law as well as our own moral compasses
  • Please don't do things that put us in situations where we have to choose between the two

Collection of Information

Analytics

We gather analytics using pixels and cookies using various platforms including Google, Facebook, IndieGoGo, Zaius, MailChimp, Mailgun, YouTube, Stripe, and probably a few others.

Due to the nature of these products, some of the analytics are anonymous, others are personally identifiable.

We do not necessarily hold the same values as these partners, however, the Internet is a big place and we're a small company so we can't yet solve all of the problems we're trying to solve with our internal team and tools alone.

Regardless, we keep the information private between us and our partners and we use the information in ways that we believe will ultimately be to the greatest benefit to our current and potential customers.


In-Home Products

Our in-home products have their own privacy policies which you should review (if you want to). The general rule of thumb is that the only place they should "phone home" to is your home because you own them and they are yours. We do offer the opportunity to login through daplie.com and oauth3.org for the purpose of automatic setup and service management (domains, dns, tunneling, etc) and we also offer the opportunity for analytic reporting to help us improve our products and services. (which is maintained in our own systems, not shipped out to Google, Facebook, etc - except when you are using in-app features that require them such as Google Maps, Facebook Connect, Stripe Payments, etc)


Direct Interactions

When you message us, subscribe to our newsletters, order one of our products, etc we use that information to deliver the content, products, and services that we believe you expect and deserve and we may analyse the data to draw conclusions about products and/or discuss specific use-case issues, questions, etc in a group setting.

We try to avoid doing weird stuff. We ask that you also try to avoid doing weird stuff. If you do weird stuff or offensive things (like say inappropriate things in comments or emails), you can bet that we'll probably laugh about it (privately), and then do our best to respond respectfully once we get over ourselves.


Disclosure

We take reasonable (and educated) measures to ensure your privacy and to protect your information. (encryption, authentication, safe surfing, etc)

We offer in-home products for which we neither create nor expose any back doors We invite you to use those devices to protect your rights. We view our in-home products the same as many people would view a safe or a firearm. We hope that you will use them for good (i.e. communicating with friends, revolutionizing freedom and privacy) and not evil (i.e. piracy of content that you could reasonably purchase or obtain by Fair Use, online bullying), but ultimately it's your call and you hold the legal responsibility for the consequences of your choices. Part of the reason for our "Physical Source" / "Source Available" software model is so that you can rest assured that the software used in our in-home products does what it claims to do.

That said, we are under the same legal constraints as every other company that operates services Internationally. We will abide by the laws of the applicable nations for applicable citizens (unless we feel that complying with a law would defy our company values and our own moral compasses) We will do the best that we can within the law to protect our customers, but please don't put us in sticky situations that would require us to disclose information that you intend to be private. As said before, we do not create or expose back doors in our in-home products.


Your Choices

The best way to keep a secret is to not know it, so please don't tell us your secrets unless they are necessary in order for us to better serve you. If there's something that you want to keep to yourself, please do - on your own hardware, in your own home. To adapt the words of a powerful public figure: "Only you can prevent forest fires". Likewise, only you can maintain perfect privacy. Thanks. :)


Really Legal Stuff

To the best of our knowledge and understanding we adhere to the following:

  • California Online Privacy Protection Act (CalOPPA)
  • Children Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA)
  • Fair Information Practices
  • The CAN-SPAM Act
