The Matrix protocol is designed with your privacy and data sovereignty in mind. Because it is a decentralised, federated service with cryptographically-validated message integrity, there are a few important things to know before you use the Service.
This Matrix Service https://matrix.envs.net is run and managed by envs.net.
The Homeserver Name is:
Services using the Matrix protocol rely on Matrix homeservers which share user data with the wider ecosystem over federation.
Some Matrix rooms are bridged to third-party services, such as IRC networks, twitter or email. When a room has been bridged, your messages and media may be copied onto the bridged service.
The envs.net homeserver provides a range of integrations in the form of Widgets (web applications accessed as part of the Matrix Client webapp) and Bots (automated participants in rooms). Bots and Widgets have access to the messages and files in rooms in which they participate.
You can request that we forget your data if you deactivate your account. Each user in a Matrix conversation receives their own copy of all messages and files in that conversation (similar to email), so we ensure data is forgotten by ensuring that your data is not shared further and is not visible to future users. Once all users’ copies have been forgotten the messages and files will be deleted from the envs.net homeserver database. For full details, please see the full privacy notice.
If you remove (redact) a message, the message content will no longer be accessible to users. Redactions only remove message content, your display name and avatar - your username will still be visible. Federated homeservers and some matrix clients may not honour the redaction request.
If any of the above are unacceptable to you, please do not use the Service.
