Let us go through which data footprint you leave by using Brainstormer, and how your data is treated and stored!
When you use brainstormer your IP address is saved temporarily, but maximum 6 months. With your IP address you’re letting me know from where in the world you are using Brainstormer, and learning the demographics of Brainstormer’s users is the only reason I store your IP address temporarily.
When you choose to send your ideas by email at the end of the brainstorming session, your email address is saved as a contact on the Brainstormer Google Gmail, which is used to send out those emails.
I will not use your email for anything at all besides sending you that one email with your generated ideas.
Your usage data
I try to understand how you use Brainstormer, by tracking which buttons you click when you use Brainstormer. I do that only to understand how useful the features I built are to you. Based on what I learn, I try to come up with improvements and new features.
Where is your data stored?
I use Heroku to host the Brainstormer app. Heroku is, as you can read in their security policy, committed to keeping customers’ data safe.
Brainstormer uses a Postgres database to store your IP address temporarily and your usage data. This database is hosted on Amazon Web Services on a data center located in Europe.
