All information that you add in your profile or profile settings (e.g. name or date of birth) is also stored together with your account and can be easily updated in your user settings to keep it accurate.

Where we store your data
How we use your data
We will use your email address to communicate with you. If not specifically stated otherwise and given your explicit consent we do not share your email address with anyone, except if required by law. Communication with third party services outside of our page always goes through us.
If you decide to use the public profile feature (not yet available), parts of your profile (e.g. username, profile picture, etc.) will be publicly visible on the internet together with the content that you decide to share.
When using our service while you are logged in we might compile and store data about how you use the service, e.g. how many entries you have made, how many ideas you have created, aso. We process this data to generate general statistics to improve our service and provide you with a better user experience.
Disclosure of information
We won't disclose any of your private information without your prior confirmation (unless required by law). Please note however that integrated third party services might very well do so. Please have a look at the 'Third party services' section below for more information.
Server log files
In order to monitor usage and problems of this site we store so-called server log files, which your browser transmits automatically while using the website. The collected information is generally not associated with personal data or other data sources. However, there might be exceptions in the case of suspected misuse or illegal actions.
The collected information comprises:
- Brower type / version
- Operating system
- Referrer URL
- Hostname of the system that executes requests
- Timestamps of requests

Third party services
This page uses third party services from various providers (see below). Those services may also store cookies on your device and – given your explicit consent – collect, store, process and transmit general and personal data about you. We do not have any or just limited control over those services. Please refer to their websites for more information about their respective policies.
We use Sentry to monitor performance and to investigate problems. Sentry collects meta data about your device and tracebacks of warnings and errors, but doesn't access your personal information or journal entries.
Access to information
You have the right to access any personal information we have stored about you. To request the data please send a short email to firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can prepare it for you.
Note: Since such a request incures a lot of work for us, please, only make a request if you really need the data. Journal entries, etc. can be exported from within the app.
Deletion of information
You can delete your user account and therewith all personal information we store about you in your profile settings, or by sending a request to email@example.com if you want us to do it for you. Exempt from the deletion are our database backups that are stored on our servers and not shared with or exposed to anyone (except if required by law).
Changes to this policy
