Logfire Privacy Statement

Last update: 2024-02-21

Welcome to the Logfire Privacy Statement. This is where we describe how we handle your "Personal Data", which is information that is directly linked or can be linked to you. It applies to the Personal Data that Pydantic Services Inc. ("PSI") processes as the "Data Controller" when you interact with our websites, our applications, and our online services that display this Statement (collectively, "Services").

Personal Data is collected from and about you directly, automatically from your device when you use our Services, and also from third parties. The Personal Data PSI processes when you use the Services depends on variables like how you interact with our Services (such as through web interfaces, command line applications), the features you use and your method of accessing the Services. Below, we detail the information we collect through each of these channels:

  • Account Data: We collect certain information when you open an account such as your GitHub handle, name, email address, password, payment information and transaction information.
  • User Content and Files: When you use our Services, we collect Personal Data included as part of the information you provide such as code, inputs, text, documents, images, or feedback.
  • Sensitive Personal Data: In some cases, you provide us with ethnicity, gender, photographic, or similar demographic details.
  • Feedback Data: This consists of information you submit through surveys, reviews, or interactive features.
  • Payment Information: For paid subscriptions, we collect details like name, billing address, and payment specifics such as card and banking details.
  • Profile Information: We collect information to create a user profile, which might include a photo, additional email addresses, job title, or biography.
  • Sales and Marketing Data: This includes information provided for promotional communications, such as name, email address, and company name.
  • Support Data: When you seek customer support, we collect details like code, text, or multimedia files.
  • Buttons, Tools, and Content from Other Companies: Our Services might contain links or buttons that lead to third-party services like Twitter or LinkedIn. Use of these features might result in data collection. Engaging with these buttons, tools, or content might automatically send certain browser information to these companies. Please review the privacy statements of these companies for more information.
  • Essential Cookies and Similar Tracking Technologies: We use cookies and similar technologies to provide essential functionality like storing settings and recognizing you while using our Services.
  • Non-essential Cookies: Depending on your jurisdiction, we might use online analytics products that use cookies to help us analyze how de-identified users use our Services and to enhance your experience when you use the Services. In some jurisdictions, we only use non-essential cookies after obtaining your consent. See "What are your cookie choices and controls?" for more details and control options.
  • Email Marketing Interactions: Our emails might have web beacons that collect information on your device type, email client, email reception, opens, and link clicks.
  • Geolocation Information: Depending on the Service's functionality, we collect regional geolocation data
  • Service Usage Information: We collect data about your interactions with the Services, such as IP address, device information, session details, date and time of requests, device type and ID, operating system and application version, information related to your contributions, and performance of specific features or Services.
  • Website Usage Data: We automatically log data about your Website interactions, including the referring site, date and time of visit, pages viewed, and links clicked.
  • Information from Other Users of the Services: Other users might share information about you when they create comments. We might also receive information about you if you are identified as a representative or administrator on your company's account, such as contact details and affiliation with your organisation.
  • Services you linked to your PSI account: When you or your administrator integrate third-party apps or services with our Services, we receive information based on your settings with those services. This can include details like your name and email from services like GitHub or Google for authentication. The information we receive depends on the third-party's settings and privacy policies. Always review these to understand what data is shared with our Services.
  • Vendors, Partners, and Affiliates: We may receive information about you from third parties, like vendors, resellers, partners, or affiliates for the purposes outlined in this statement.

We require all third parties to respect the security of your personal data and to treat it in accordance with the law. We do not allow our third-party service providers to use your personal data for their own purposes and only permit them to process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.

The Personal Data we process depends on your interaction and access methods with our Services, including the interfaces, features used, and your preferred access tools. This section details all the potential ways PSI may process your Personal Data:

  • understanding usage patterns and platform behavior during beta testing of the Logfire platform

PSI will provide you with notice regarding Personal Data access unless:

  • doing so is prohibited by law
  • PSI acted in response to a security threat or other risk to security, or
  • our main platform is in a "beta" state

PSI processes Personal Data in compliance with the GDPR, ensuring a lawful basis for each processing activity as set out above in the section Personal Data We Collect. The basis varies depending on the data type and the context, including how you access the services. Our processing activities typically fall under these lawful bases:

  • Contractual Necessity: Processing is required to fulfill our contractual duties to you, in accordance with the PSI Terms of Service.
  • Legal Obligation: We process data when it's necessary to comply with applicable laws or to protect the rights, safety, and property of PSI, our affiliates, users, or third parties.
  • Legitimate Interests: We process data for purposes that are in our legitimate interests, such as securing our Services, communicating with you, and improving our Services. This is done only when these interests are not overridden by your data protection rights or your fundamental rights and freedoms.
  • Consent: We process data when you have explicitly consented to such processing. When we rely on consent as the legal basis, you have the right to withdraw your consent for data processing at any time. The procedures for withdrawal are detailed in this Statement and available on our website.

Depending on your residence location, you may have specific legal rights regarding your Personal Data:

  • The right to access the data collected about you
  • The right to request detailed information about the specific types of Personal Data we've collected over the past 12 months, including data disclosed for business purposes
  • The right to rectify or update inaccurate or incomplete Personal Data under certain circumstances
  • The right to erase or limit the processing of your Personal Data under specific conditions
  • The right to object to the processing of your Personal Data, as allowed by applicable law
  • The right to withdraw consent, where processing is based on your consent
  • The right to receive your collected Personal Data in a structured, commonly used, and machine-readable format to facilitate its transfer to another company, where technically feasible

To exercise these rights, please contact us and follow the instructions provided. To verify your identity for security, we might request extra information before addressing your data-related request. Please contact our Data Protection Officer for any feedback or concerns. Depending on your region, you have the right to complain to your local Data Protection Authority. European users can find authority contacts on the European Data Protection Board website, and UK users on the Information Commissioner's Office website.

We aim to promptly respond to requests in compliance with legal requirements. Please note that we might retain certain Personal Data as necessary for legal obligations or for establishing, exercising, or defending legal claims.

PSI stores and processes Personal Data in a variety of locations, including your local region, the United States, and other countries where PSI, its affiliates, subsidiaries, or subprocessors have operations. We transfer Personal Data from the European Union, the United Kingdom, and Switzerland to countries that the European Commission has not recognized as having an adequate level of data protection. When we engage in such transfers, we generally rely on the Standard Contractual Clauses (SCCs) published by the European Commission under Commission Implementing Decision 2021/914, help protect your rights and enable these protections to travel with your Personal Data. To learn more about the European Commission's decisions on the adequacy of the protection of personal data in the countries where PSI processes Personal Data, see this article on the European Commission website.

When transferring personal data outside the UK, we use the or the Addendum to the SCCs published by the UK’s Information Commissioner’s Office (the “ICO").

We may use specific standard contractual terms approved for use in the UK published by the UK’s Information Commissioner’s Office (the “ICO") which give the transferred personal data the same protection as it has in the UK, namely the International Data Transfer Agreement or use the ICO’s International Data Transfer Addendum to the European Commission’s standard contractual clauses.

To obtain a copy of these contractual safeguards, please contact us.

We will only retain your personal data for as long as reasonably necessary to fulfill the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or reporting requirements. We may retain your personal data for a longer period in the event of a complaint or if we reasonably believe there is a prospect of litigation in respect to our relationship with you.

To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or other requirements.

PSI uses administrative, technical, and physical security controls where appropriate to protect your Personal Data.

Our Services are not intended for individuals under the age of 18. We do not intentionally gather Personal Data from such individuals. If you become aware that a minor has provided us with Personal Data, please contact us.

PSI might periodically revise this Privacy Statement. If there are material changes to the statement, we will provide at least 30 days prior notice. We might add a notification on our website, insert a pop-up that the statement has been updated, or send an email to your primary email address associated with your PSI account. We will also update the copy of this statement available on our website.

PSI uses cookies to provide, secure and improve our Service or to develop new features and functionality of our Service. For example, we use them to (i) keep you logged in, (ii) remember your preferences, (iii) identify your device for security and fraud purposes, including as needed to maintain the integrity of our Service, (iv) compile statistical reports, and (v) provide information and insight for future development of PSI.

Our emails to users might contain a pixel tag, which is a small, clear image that can tell us whether or not you have opened an email and what your IP address is. We use this pixel tag to make our email communications more effective and to make sure we are not sending you unwanted email.

The length of time a cookie will stay on your browser or device depends on whether it is a "persistent" or "session" cookie. Session cookies will only stay on your device until you stop browsing. Persistent cookies stay until they expire or are deleted. The expiration time or retention period applicable to persistent cookies depends on the purpose of the cookie collection and tool used. You might be able to delete cookie data. For more information, see "What are your cookie choices and controls?".

What are cookies and similar technologies?

We use cookies and similar technologies, such as web beacons, local storage, and mobile analytics, to operate and provide our Services.

Cookies are small text files stored by your browser on your device. A cookie can later be read when your browser connects to a web server in the same domain that placed the cookie. The text in a cookie contains a string of numbers and letters that might uniquely identify your device and can contain other information as well. This allows the web server to recognize your browser over time, each time it connects to that web server.

Web beacons are electronic images (also called "single-pixel" or "clear GIFs") that are contained within a website or email. When your browser opens a webpage or email that contains a web beacon, it automatically connects to the web server that hosts the image (typically operated by a third party). This allows that web server to log information about your device and to set and read its own cookies. In the same way, third-party content on our websites (such as embedded videos, plug-ins, or ads) results in your browser connecting to the third-party web server that hosts that content.

How do we and our partners use cookies and similar technologies?

The PSI Services use cookies and similar technologies for a variety of purposes, including to store your preferences and settings, enable you to sign-in, analyze how our Services perform, track your interaction with the Services, develop inferences, combat fraud, and fulfill other legitimate purposes. Some of these cookies and technologies might be provided by third parties.

We and/or our partners also share the information we collect or infer with third parties for these purposes.

The points below provides additional information about how we use different types of cookies:

Required Cookies

PSI uses required cookies to perform essential website functions and to provide the services. For example, cookies are used to log you in, save your language preferences, provide a shopping cart experience, improve performance, route traffic between web servers, detect the size of your screen, determine page load times, improve user experience, and for audience measurement. These cookies are necessary for our websites to work.


We might use third party services which use analytics cookies to understand how you use our websites so we can make them better. For example, cookies might be used to gather information about the pages you visit and how many clicks you need to accomplish a task.

You have several options to disable non-essential cookies:

Any PSI page that serves non-essential cookies will have a link in the page's footer to cookie settings. You can express your preferences at any time by clicking on that linking and updating your settings.

You can control the cookies you encounter on the web using a variety of widely-available tools. For example:

  • If your browser sends a Do Not Track (DNT) signal, PSI will not set non-essential cookies and will not load third party resources which set non-essential cookies.
  • Many browsers provide cookie controls which might limit the types of cookies you encounter online. Check out the documentation for your browser to learn more.
  • If you enable a browser extension designed to block tracking, such as Privacy Badger, non-essential cookies set by a website or third parties might be disabled.
  • If you enable a browser extension designed to block unwanted content, such as uBlock Origin, non-essential cookies will be disabled to the extent that content that sets non-essential cookies will be blocked.
  • You might use the Global Privacy Control (GPC) to communicate your privacy preferences. If PSI detects the GPC signal from your device, PSI will not share your data (we do not sell your data). To learn more, visit Global Privacy Control — Take Control Of Your Privacy
  • Advertising controls. Our advertising partners might participate in associations that provide simple ways to opt out of ad targeting, which you can access at:
  • United States: NAI and DAA
  • Canada: Digital Advertising Alliance of Canada
  • Europe: European Digital Advertising Alliance

These choices are specific to the browser you are using. If you access our Services from other devices or browsers, take these actions from those systems to ensure your choices apply to the data collected when you use those systems.

This section provides extra information specifically for residents of certain US states that have distinct data privacy laws and regulations. These laws may grant specific rights to residents of these states when the laws come into effect. This section uses the term "personal information" as an equivalent to the term "Personal Data."

Shine the Light Act

Under California Civil Code section 1798.83, also known as the "Shine the Light" law, California residents who have provided personal information to a business with which the individual has established a business relationship for personal, family, or household purposes ("California Customers") might request information about whether the business has disclosed personal information to any third parties for the third parties' direct marketing purposes. Please be aware that we do not disclose personal information to any third parties for their direct marketing purposes as defined by this law. California Customers might request further information about our compliance with this law by contacting us. Please note that businesses are required to respond to one request per California Customer each year and might not be required to respond to requests made by means other than through the designated email address.

California residents under the age of 18 who are registered users of online sites, services, or applications have a right under California Business and Professions Code Section 22581 to remove, or request and obtain removal of, content or information they have publicly posted.

To request that we remove such content or information, please send a detailed description of the specific content or information you wish to have removed via the Email provided in the Contact Us section.
