Data collected will not be used for any purposes which are not necessary for operating the network. Monetization of data is not accepted in the Trustroots by laws.
1) Who we are
We believe that you are the owners of your data, however, under European law Trustroots is the “Data Controller” because we store your data and determine how it is used.

3) How is your data used
All the data that Trustroots collects is necessary for operating and populating the network and is used for this purpose.
We will also use your contact information to contact you, but only for things about Trustroots, for example, to tell you that you have a new message on Trustroots. We will not use it for any other purposes or share it with others for any other purposes. We use your location information to show approximately where you are in the world and we show this on the Trustroots map.
Usage data is used to monitor site and server performance and generate usage statistics.
4) Third parties and the data we share with them
Though we hope we never have to, we will share you data with law enforcement in response to a lawful request for data or court order.
Google analytics and user statistics
Trustroots uses Google Analytics and Piwik hosted by IndieHosters to collect usage statistics. We use New Relic to monitor site and server performance. No personal user data is sent or stored at these services.
We will have API functionality that will allow third parties to build functionality on top of the Trustroots network. If you want to use such 3rd party applications you will be specifically asked for permission by Trustroots to such a 3rd party application. No information will be shared without your explicit consent.
Opting out from third party data use:
Some of the features at the site use other social networks such as Twitter, Facebook, GitHub or Gravatar. You don’t have to connect your profile to these social networks and we don’t share any data you provide to us with them. If you choose to connect with social networks we take information from those social networks and then display it on your Trustroots profile. Some of the data from these sites is then stored at our server in order to facilitate this. Some of our users want to use these networks and they have a right to do so. Others prefer to steer away from these networks and we’ll also accommodate these users.
5) Checking, amending or deleting your data
You are able to download your profile data to check for inaccuracies or information you may not want us to have. If you want to amend data on your profile you can do so using ordinary site functions. If you want you profile to be removed entirely you can contact us and we will erase all the data.
