Privacy Policy
November 1, 2022

OpenOversightVA takes your privacy and security very seriously. OpenOversightVA is hosted on its own subdomain and web server. This Privacy Policy only applies to OpenOversightVA.

Logs and Security

OpenOversightVA uses HTTPS on all of its web servers and on all of our subdomains. However, since OpenOversightVA is hosted on its own subdomain and web server, it will be possible for employers, ISPs, or anyone performing network-level traffic analysis to identify that you have visited OpenOversightVA. OpenOversightVA does not maintain network logs on our web servers. We have explicitly disabled nginx from maintaining access or error logs, an example configuration can be found here. We also do not block incoming connections from any regions or IP block, so we welcome traffic from any anonymity network such as Tor.

What Is Collected

OpenOversightVA has a form for volunteers to submit data to us using Google Docs. This data is not hosted by OpenOversightVA and is outside of this Privacy Policy. The Submission Form does not require you to provide a name and we will not reject any submissions without names. Please note that Google and other third parties might collect your IPs and other identifying information. Google's Privacy Policy can be found here and Google Drive's Terms of Service may be found here.

Future Changes

In the case that OpenOversightVA has to update this Privacy Policy, we will update the date at the top of this webpage.
