Omeka Services Isolated Hosting is an open-source project committed to providing the best web publishing tool for collections available anywhere. Our philosophy is that what you put into Omeka Services is yours, and one of our founding principles is to make it as easy as possible to use your collections where and when you want them, and to share them how you like—-or to choose not to share them at all.
We are a not for profit organization and have no financial interest in your private information. We fund further development by selling storage plans and other software services, not by mining your data. Omeka Services Hosting is a cloud service that requires you to supply us with some information for participation. Participation in these services is up to you and can be adjusted at any time in your account settings.
We may be legally required to disclose collected data to law enforcement or government agencies in some situations.
Data We Collect
We collect the information you voluntarily provide when you contract to use Omeka Services Hosting, such as your name, your username, your email address, and your billing contact information.
- We collect and store user generated content and files for the purpose of website creation.
- We log visits to our website, including IP address and browser, in order to prevent abuse and diagnose technical issues. We retain these access logs for 90 days.
Omeka Services Plan Purchases
When we issue an invoice through Quickbooks for an Omeka Services plan, we collect your email address and billing address. You may pay that invoice using a credit card, an ACH transfer, or through mailing a check.
Omeka Services does not collect or store your credit card, banking, or other payment information. When you enter your full name, billing address, and account numbers to complete a Omeka Services purchase, this information passes directly to our payment processor, and it never touches Omeka Services servers.
You may choose to request direct Omeka Services support through our contact form or ticketing system. We collect your name, your email address, your Omeka Services site, and and any other information you provide, and we may store your messages indefinitely to provide context for any future support requests you make.
Third-Party Services Used
- All Omeka Services data is stored in the U.S. in Amazon Web Services.
- Credit card processing for Hosting Plans is provided by Quickbooks.
Security of Stored Data
All data uploaded to Omeka Services is encrypted in transit with current best practices and stored within the Amazon cloud, where access is tightly restricted to the few people who need access to maintain the service. All data is currently stored in the us-east-1 AWS region in Virginia.
