Privacy & Cookies

We’ve designed this site with privacy in mind.

Unlike most websites, we do not use extensions, plugins, cookies or embed any code that can be used to harvest personal information (including your IP address) from you. We serve all stylesheets, icons, javascript and other code locally, so there are no links back to third parties.

Our site is hosted on a secure server over HTTPS, making it harder for third parties to track user movements.

Despite all of this, we recommend that you always take basic measures to protect your identity online. Set your browser to send the Do Not Track header, install a privacy plugin such as Disconnect, and if you’re really concerned then use the Tor Browser or Tails.

Visit the Riseup help pages to learn  about what you can do to improve your network security and protect your privacy.
