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 a small company, we do not have an external data officer. Responsible for data protection are Transloadit’s founders Tim Koschützki and Kevin van Zonneveld. You can reach them at [email protected].

What data is collected?

We receive the following data from you:

  1. IP addresses
  2. Request headers
  3. Data entered on our website
  4. Information used to analyze usage of our platform via Plausible, a GDPR-compliant service that anonymizes data on impact.
  5. Files you can optionally upload in example demos. Those files are stored temporarily for 24–72 hours, on, or servers, and then deleted. See also Transloadit’s Privacy Policy:

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

Since we do not store data on data subjects, migration or deletion tools are not applicable.

We use the following third-party services which also store data about you:
