Tracking of backend usage
The backend of our website is exclusively accessed by members of our team and therefore password protected. For security reasons we track all activity in the backend (including all attempts to log into the backend).
If you fill in and submit a form on this website, all data you provide is stored on our servers in Basel (Switzerland), operated by Cyon GmbH (see below). In addition, this data is transferred by email to our staff. Since email is not a secure channel we strongly recommend that you do not transfer any sensitive information through our forms.
Our forms implement the Google reCAPTCHA service as a protection against spam. In addition to certain standard Google cookies, reCAPTCHA sets a necessary cookie (_GRECAPTCHA) when executed for the purpose of providing its risk analysis.

Kiwix Apps and Server logs
For any file request our webserver logs certain data about the device the request is coming from like IP address, operating system and web browser. However, this data is not used to track individual users, and it is stored only for a limited time period.
As far as the Kiwix app goes, it does not collect any data on your usage of the app. Basically we only know that people download Kiwix, nothing more.
