Privacy policy

We take your privacy seriously. The full version is below, but the simple version is this: Atlos tries to collect as little information from our users as possible. Unless you pay for the platform, we don’t even ask for your name. Atlos is a non-profit, open source project. Our goal isn’t to sell you targeted ads — it’s only to support your visual investigations. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to [email protected].
