Who we are
GitTags is developed and maintained by Ren Ventura, an individual software developer from the United States.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it
When you connect your Github account to GitTags, we collect information from Github for the purpose of providing you a personalized experience that integrates seamlessly with your Github profile. When you authenticate GitTags to integrate with your Github profile, you grant us access to your name and primary Github email address. We store this data on our server to connect a revokable Github access token with your profile. This access token can be revoked at any time from within your Github profile. When revoked, GitTags will no longer be able to access any data related to your Github profile.
When you log out of GitTags, we remove the access token from your GitTags profile. You will need to re-authenticate with Github to begin using the GitTag service again.
Granting access to GitTags from Github also provides us the ability to ready data from your public and private repositories and gists. Generally, no information about your repositories and gists is stored. When you tag a repo or gist from GitTags, we store the gist’s/repo’s ID and author. This information is used for improving your user experience by linking to the tagged gist/repo, and to remind you of the author.
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
After submitting a comment form, your name, email address, browser user agent, and I.P. address will be saved within the context of your submission. This information will be used for purposes of reading and responding to your submission.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
When you log in to GitTags via Github, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for one year. If you log out of your GitTags profile, the login cookies will be removed.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
The GitTags website uses Google Analytics to lean about where website traffic comes from.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that authenticate GitTags to access their Github profile, we store the users’ first and last name (if available on Github) and email address. This information is stored indefinitely.
What rights you have over your data
If you have authenticated GitTags to access your Github profile, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
