Privacy and Data Retention

Forums General Open Discussion Privacy and Data Retention

    Do you have any documents discussing privacy and data retention?

    Failing that, can you let me know what data you store if I use your DNS service and how long you hold it for?

    Thanks

    Hi Joe,

    Absolutely. We specify it on our privacy policy here: https://cleanbrowsing.org/privacy

    But to summarize, we treat privacy very seriously and we subscribe to this simple philosophy: Data that does not exist can not be stolen, compromised or shared. If you are using our free DNS, for example, we do not log your DNS requests, we do not log your IP addresses or what you are doing. Our block pages generate a NXDOMAIN, and it is not redirected to a tracking page.

    Hope it clarifies.

    Hi Daniel

    I didn’t spot the “Privacy” link in the page footer

    The policy looks comprehensive

    Are you willing to divulge what Public DNS resolver data you retain for debugging and for how long etc?

    Mostly errors, things like DNSSEC failures and when we can’t connect to a specific DNS server.

    We store them locally only for a few days and the logs are rotated/cleared.

    thanks!
