Privacy

This privacy policy sets out how we use and protect any information that you submit when you use this website.

We are committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected. Should we ask you to provide certain information by which you can be identified when using this website, then you can be assured that it will only be used in accordance with this privacy statement.

We may change this policy from time to time by updating this page. You should check this page occasionally to ensure that you are happy with any changes. This policy is effective from October 28th, 2014.

General Information

PlantText is built using Google Authentication, so some functionality of PlantText.com requires access to the Google Users API, but only if you choose to login, in which case we only have access to your basic contact information.

One thing to consider is that your PlantUML content will be sent in clear text to the PlantUML.com web service (which is not affiliated with PlantText.com in any way) in order to generate the image diagrams. Please see the privacy policy of that service for more details. We would recommend that you do not send any proprietary or sensitive PlantUML to that server. Instead you should setup your own internal PlantUML server.

We also have plans to add functionality to help you convert PlantUML class diagrams to code stubs in a number of programming languages. In this case, PlantUML will be sent in clear text to another web service in order to dynamically generate code stubs.

Again, do not put any sensitive content into this system because it is transmitted across the internet in clear text.
