Currently, our email servers do not enforce encryption for receiving and sending, but try to enable it whenever possible, simply because too many providers don't support it yet.

File Uploads (AnyLint)

The AnyLint website and associated GitHub App store your files in Germany until they have been analyzed successfully.

If there was an error analyzing your files and they weren't deleted as a result of that, our cleanup script will delete them at the start of next day (UTC+0).

Let's Encrypt certificates (ipssl)

When you generate a certificate with ipssl, we will store

in correlation in Germany in order to re-deliver and renew your certificate for the time the certificate is valid.

A certificate is valid for 90 days. However, if you click the "Claim + certificate" button within the last 30 days before the certificate expires, it will be renewed.

Your IP address will be shared with Cloudflare and indirectly with Let's Encrypt so your certificate can be issued.
