Privacy Policy

Uppy is an open source file uploader, developed by the team at Transloadit Ltd. and open source contributors on GitHub.

In order to demonstrate Uppy file uploader and Transloadit’s file encoding service on this website, we capture and store information about you.

Who is responsible for data protection?

Since we are operating with a staff of less than ten people, we do not have an external data officer. Responsible for data protection are our founders Tim Koschützki and Kevin van Zonneveld. You can reach them at [email protected].

What data is collected?

  4. The browser session (identified through a cookie)
  5. Information used to analyze usage of our platform (through cookies from Google Analytics. More on cookies is explained below)

All data that passes through demos is only used for demo purposes, and never sold or otherwise given away.

Changes to our privacy policy

We may change this privacy policy from time to time. Nevertheless, we will not reduce your rights under this privacy policy.

Cookies, analytics and traffic data

Cookies are small text files that are transferred from our website and stored on your device. We use cookies to help us provide you with a personalized service, and to help make our website and service better for you.

Our cookies may be session cookies (temporary cookies that identify and track users within our websites) which are deleted when you close your browser, or persistent cookies (cookies that enable our website to “remember” who you are and to remember your preferences within our website) which will stay on your computer or device after you close your browser).

We use the following different types of cookies:

Performance cookies and analytics technologies

Performance cookies collect information about how visitors and users use our website. These cookies register, for example, which functionality our visitors use most often, or if they receive error messages from certain areas of our website. These cookies don’t collect information that can be used to identify a visitor or user. All information collected by these cookies is aggregated and therefore anonymous. We only use these cookies to improve how our website works.

Functionality cookies

Functionality cookies allow our website to remember the choices you make (such as your user name, language or the region you are in) and provide enhanced and more personal features. These cookies can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, fonts and other parts of web pages that you can customize. They may also be used to provide services you have asked for. The information collected by these cookies may be anonymized. They cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.

IP Address and traffic data

We keep a record of the traffic data that is logged automatically by our servers, such as your Internet Protocol (IP) address, device information, the website that you visited before ours and the website you visit after leaving our site. We also collect some site, application and service statistics, such as access rates, page hits and page views. We are not able to identify any individual from traffic data or site statistics.

Google Analytics

Our platform uses Google Analytics, which uses cookies. The information created through these cookies about your usage of uppy.io will be transmitted to a Google server in the United States of America and stored there. When you are located in one of the states of the European Union, your IP address will be anonymized on our platform prior to transmitting it. We use the code “ga(‘set’, ‘anonymizeIp’, true);” to ensure an anonymous way of saving IP addresses (so-called IP-masking).

Google will use this information to analyze your usage of our platform and to create reports about the activities on our platform. The IP address that will be sent to Google as a result of Google Analytics will not be connected to any other data on Google.

You can avoid any cookies being saved by changing the settings in your browser accordingly. Please be aware that if you choose to do so, you might not be able to make full use of our website and all of its features. You can also prevent the analysis of your browsing behavior on our platform through Google Analytics by installing the following browser plugin: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
