How private is the data I place on DigitalOcean servers?
I’m not a lawyer. I was trying to interpret the section about content and privacy of my data, and I’d like clarification.
Q1) Does section 2.5 say, in effect, that DigitalOcean can access, use for any purpose, and share with anyone of it’s choosing, and give them the same permissions, any data that I place on your servers? So, in effect you’re saying that I can expect zero privacy of my data?
Q2) What about data I store on servers in Amsterdam? I won’t put anything illegal on any of your servers, I’m a decent and law abiding guy. Given the current and sad state of affairs where our own U.S government spies on it’s own U.S citizens, it would be nice to know if my data is out of their reach. I don’t think it’s anyone’s business who I communicate with, period. It’s absolutely unforgivable what they’re doing, and I’d like to avoid them as much as possible.
Thanks a bunch for your answers. I haven’t used your service much, but when I did I thought it pretty amazing. I’m sure it’s done nothing but improve since then. Hoping to use it again soon.
