K-Review is designed with privacy in mind and do not communicate with third-party services in any form (exception: licensing, see below). There are no trackers, no analytics and no cookies except those related to sessions and user management.
K-Review usually do not store or process any personal data of your site visitors. However, here is a list of K-Review features that process data and some general information about where personal data might get stored.
User handling & the Panel
User data gets stored in account files within an "accounts" directory. K-Review will create a session cookie to keep track of the currently logged in user by the login form.
The user credentials are transmitted via HTTP. Therefore, K-Review use TLS encryption for your platform to protect the passwords and other personal data of your visitors and users.
The Panel also stores unsaved changes in localStorage in the user’s browser.
To protect the Panel login against brute-force attacks, K-Review temporarily stores a shortened SHA256 hash of the IP address on login failures. This hash cannot be converted back to the raw IP address. You can control the number of possible trials before brute-force protections kicks in and the time span for which this data is stored in your config settings.
If K-Review use the languages.detect option on a multilang plateform, K-Review also creates a session cookie to keep track of the visitor’s language. This option is disabled by default.
K-Review use a csrf helper function which creates a session cookie so that the helper can validate the CSRF token in a later request.
K-Review use Kirby as framework development system and pay a license for each platform installation. To register this license, the Panel connects to the Kirby licensing server once to verify the license. When K-Review register your platform license, the following information is transmitted to the Kirby server:
the entered license key
the address connected to the license key (K-Review email)
the domain of the k-Review installation
No other personal or site data is transmitted to our server.
All the users data are backuped.
