We are GDPR-compliant. GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) established by the European Union gives every user the right to access their personal data that services keep. The regulation also gives users the right to be forgotten by the services they have used — that is, if you want to have your data removed, you should be able to do so.
If you wish to remove your user data from our servers, contact us via inbox[at]geist.institute and we will proceed with the data removal in accordance to the rules of GDPR.
