Privacy policy

Since this project implements privacy by design, it does not collect or forward personal user data. This term means information that can be used to identify a natural person – for example you.


This website takes the following steps in order to avoid collecting or forwarding personal user data:

Logfiles: this website anonymises your IP address when logging so that it cannot be traced back to you.

Connection: this website is offered over a secure TLS connection. That means https only, which keeps all data transfer confidential and protects the downloads against manipulation.

Tracking: this website is free of cookies, trackers, analytics, social media plugins and third party content, all of which would otherwise put your privacy at risk.

Links: this website does not employ affiliate links and prevents leaking referrers. If you click on an external link, the target website will not know that you came from this website.

User functions: this website does not implement user comments, user accounts or user payments so that no associated data can accrue.


Also the downloadable items are designed in a privacy friendly way. This includes the following aspects:

Software: the executable binaries and build scripts that you can download on this website do not collect or forward data – neither user data nor telemetry data.

Android: in particular, the Android version of the chess engine does not request or use special permissions.
