Our Privacy policy

TL;DR — you have full responsibility and control over your data.

We are against the use of trackers and how companies employ these to collect data. This is not the data and information culture that we support. We support this Data Commons Manifesto, but understand there’s a long ways to make it into reality.

We strive to collect as little personal/user-related data as possible. Aside from the essential data required to run permapeople.org, we are not collecting additional user or tracking data.

This is also why we do not have a cookie consent screen, since we only use a technically required cookie when you log in.

User contributions

Any data you share with us, or that you contribute to permapeople.org (e.g. account details, settings, code, content, plant information)—you have full responsibility and control to add, modify, create, share and delete this data under the Creative Commons license mentioned in the footer of every page.

If some data cannot be modified, and you would like to make an edit, please let us know at hello@permapeople.org.
