Privacy Policy

Last updated November 15, 2021

WriteFreely, the software that powers this site, is built to enforce your right to privacy by default.

It retains as little data about you as possible, not even requiring an email address to sign up. However, if you do give us your email address, it is stored encrypted in our database. We salt and hash your account's password.

We store log files, or data about what happens on our servers. We also use cookies to keep you logged in to your account.

Beyond this, it's important that you trust whoever runs Atelier of Thought. Software can only do so much to protect you — your level of privacy protections will ultimately fall on the humans that run this particular service.

Instance Specific

This website may or may not use a self hosted analytics platform called Matomo. The admin uses it to determine bot activity and in no way is tied specifically to any user to be used maliciously or with benevolent intentions.
