Privacy Policy
The Glee Privacy Policy was updated on July 7, 2020.

Privacy is a fundamental human right. At Glee, it's also one of our core values. We offer services that enable organizations, creators and platforms to engage with their users in an effective way. We believe what you share and who you share it with should be up to you. We will never sell, rent or share your personal information with a 3rd party, without your explicit permission, unless required by law. Never ever!

We respect your privacy. That's our privacy policy in a nutshell.

Your privacy is important to Glee so we've developed a Privacy Policy that covers what exactly we collect, how we collect, use, disclose, transfer, and store your personal information.

Information we collect

If you're only browsing Glee - without registering, voting, commenting, or posting anything explicitly - we don't collect any data from or about you.

When you register for a Glee account, through GitHub, we collect your id, username, name, and primary verified email address from GitHub.

When you subscribe for a non-free Glee plan for an organization, we will ask you to provide your organization name, billing email, and billing address.

Our use of your information

We use your id from GitHub to connect your GitHub account with your Glee account so that we can offer our service. Your GitHub name is used as your display name in the Glee platform. And if you don't have a GitHub name, we use your username instead. We use your primary verified email address from GitHub as your email address for Glee. We will use this email address only in case of emergencies.

The organization name, billing email, and billing address that we ask you to provide when you start a non-free Glee subscription is required by our billing partner Stripe to manage you as a customer and is sent to Stripe, without ever being stored in our servers. This is covered by Stripe's Privacy Policy.

Collection and Use of Non-Personal Information

As is true of most internet services, we gather some information automatically and store it in log files. This information may include but is not limited to Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, system configuration information, User Agents, and other information about the traffic to and from the website.

This information is collected so that we can diagnose errors, find and block malicious users/abusers of the service, and make our services better. Logs are stored temporarily and is deleted once our servers restart.

Your data rights and choices

We believe that users should be treated equally no matter where they are, and so we are making the following options to control your data available to all users, regardless of their location.

To update your email and name/username associated with your account, you can update these details on GitHub and the next time you login to Glee, these details will be updated in our servers.

You can update information about your organization account by accessing your organization profile via "Settings".

We believe that the users should be in control of their data. And that's why we leave it up to you to delete your data whenever you choose.

Data Retention

We anonymize, or delete your data as soon as it's not relevant to you.

When you remove a vote, delete a comment or post, all data associated with it is instantly deleted.

When you delete an organization, any active subscription is cancelled, your customer data between us and Stripe is deleted, and all other data related to the organization is instantly deleted from our servers.

And when you delete your account, we remove all your data with us - name, username, email address, and organizations you've created. You might've voted, commented, or posted something in an organization (that doesn't belong to you) that might be relevant to them. So, we don't delete these data, but we anonymize it so that it cannot be linked back to you as soon as your account is deleted.


We take reasonable steps to protect the information we collect from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. However, no Internet or email transmission is ever fully secure or error free. In particular, email sent to or from the Services may not be secure. Therefore, you should take special care in deciding what information you send to us via email. Please keep this in mind when disclosing any information via the Internet, in general.

Changes to this privacy policy

Glee may update its Privacy Policy from time to time. When we change the policy in a material way, a notice will be posted on our website along with the updated Privacy Policy.

Privacy Questions

If you have any questions or concerns about Glee's Privacy Policy or data processing, or if you would like to make a complaint about a possible breach of local privacy laws, please contact us.

Where your complaint indicates an improvement could be made in our handling of privacy issues, we will take steps to make such an update at the next reasonable opportunity. In the event that a privacy issue has resulted in a negative impact on you or another person we will take steps to address that with you or that other person.
