Butterfy Privacy Policy.

Butterfy is a not-for-profit organization building a self-sustaining business model which does not rely on advertisement. Thereby, the organization keeps its independence and does not need any third-party investors or clients. Butterfy’s only obligation is to you.

This gives us the freedom of not having to collect unnecessary data. Your data privacy and security are a top concern for Butterfy. We treat your data with the utmost care and in accordance with the applicable laws and this privacy policy. Butterfy does not collect anything that is not absolutely needed and necessary for the respective purpose. We use servers in Switzerland and in the European Union. We use servers in the USA only as far as necessary.

However, some third-party services we are using (like Twitter or Vimeo) have different business models and thus, different privacy policies. Please be aware that those services might try to collect data without us wanting that. Make sure you protect yourself with anonymizing tools like the Tor Browser.

You can always contact us and request insight into and deletion of your data. Or help us improve our policies.
