I want to host a simple service that allows you to send yourself an email.
The habbit of sending myself an email did a lot of good for me in terms of
reflection and perspective. I wanted to share that experience which is why
I decided to open up this service.
This is a side project and in order to avoid any legal headackes I am putting this legalspeak here. I really wish I could do without it but lawyers are scary.
I use cloud software and I am taking an effort to make sure these providers delete everything once I've sent the email back. I cannot be held accountable legally if these cloud providers fail me. I also cannot promise that if my laptop gets stolen by a serious hacker that my cloud credentials won't be comprimised. I also cannot be held responsible against malicious threats like a DDoS attack. I must abide by the laws that govern the country that I live in.
I do promise never to peek inside your emails without your explicit consent.
Your privacy is important. It is dearme's policy to respect your privacy regarding
any information we may collect from you across our website; http://dearme.email,
in the emails that we receive and other sites we own and operate.
We only ask for personal information when we truly need it to provide a service to you. We cannot send an email back to you if we don't have both the return adress and the body. We collect it by fair and lawful means, with your knowledge and consent. We also let you know why we’re collecting it and how it will be used.
We only retain collected information for as long as necessary to provide you with your requested service. Once the email is sent it is deleted. What data we store, we’ll protect within commercially acceptable means to prevent loss and theft, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use or modification.
We use postmark and mongodb. Postmark will receive your email because otherwise we cannot send an email back. Once the email is received we delete all traces of it. The third parties have retention policies on their logs so the deletion may not be immediately but they currently promise us not to store any logs after 45 days have passed. The data shared with mongodb is encrypted to reduce any risks there. Besides these two parties we don’t share any personally identifying information publicly or with third-parties, except when required to by law.
Our website may link to external sites that are not operated by dearme (like twitter). Please be aware that we have no control over the content and practices of these sites, and cannot accept responsibility or liability for their respective privacy policies.
You are free to refuse our request for your personal information, with the understanding that we are unable to provide you with some of your desired services. If you send us an email, we will be able to read the contents, even though we're not interested in it.
Your continued use of our website will be regarded as acceptance of our practices around privacy and personal information. If you have any questions about how we handle user data and personal information, feel free to contact.
