Data

What Do We Store?

In order to prevent unwanted spam on our server, we store some of your data

Server Side

On the server, we store a hash containing your IP to uniquely identify you in order to prevent spam.
We never store your actual IP, just a hash representing it.
The hash is in SHA1-base64 in order to ensure security.

Client Side

Our Cookies
Cookies are used on this site in order to improve your experience.
They store a time in order to make sure that the button is disabled when you are unable to post.
That is the only information they store, it is in this data format:

lastMessageTime=${Date.now()};samesite=lax

REMOVING THIS COOKIE WON'T LET YOU POST, IT'LL JUST PREVENT YOU FROM KNOWING WHEN YOU CAN POST AGAIN
Cloudflare Cookies
In order to protect this site from things like DDOS attacks, I use Cloudflare.
They store one cookie in your browser, that being _cfduid, it identifies your browser across all of cloudflare in order to assure you are a real person.

Can I Opt-Out?

You can't opt-out from using cookies on this site and having your hashed IP stored as they are used here to prevent spam while still protecting your privacy.
If you don't want cookies, don't post a message, as they are stored whenever you post a message.
