Privacy Policy

Last updated: April 5, 2023

This Privacy Policy is part of our Terms of Service. Any words defined in the Terms of Service have the same meaning in this Privacy Policy.

We seek to minimize the amount of personal information that we collect and store. We are not interested in advertising or building predatory "profiles" of our visitors. Any information we do collect is only used to operate Gridlist, provide paid services, and make informed decisions about how to improve Gridlist. We also don't sell or trade visitor information with other companies.

We may modify this Privacy Policy at any time and subsequently revise the "Last updated" date at the top of this page. Your access to and use of Gridlist is always subject to the current Privacy Policy. If you do not agree to the new Privacy Policy, you must either stop using Gridlist or delete your account.

This document provides details about what kind of data Gridlist gathers and how we manage and protect it.


By accessing or using Gridlist, you consent to our practices described in this Privacy Policy. If you do not agree with this Privacy Policy, do not access or use Gridlist.

Cookies and Browser Data

Gridlist has features that require us to remember your preferences and identify who is logged in to our applications. We use a combination of browser cookies and your browser's local storage to track this information.

Account identifiers in cookies are encrypted, and we do not store any sensitive information in local storage. We only set these items when you specifically log in to the site or change your preferences.

Clear website data

If you no longer want this information on your device, you can clear your history and cookies:

Children's Privacy

Gridlist is not intended for children under the age of 18. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 18. If you are a parent or guardian and believe that your child has used Gridlist and/or provided us with personal information, please contact us.

Gridlist Accounts

You can register for a Gridlist account in order to use personalized or exclusive features. If you do, the information in this section applies to you.

Personal information

In order to open an account, you will need to provide us with some required information, including a username and email address. You may also provide other optional information, such as a display name. None of this information needs to contain your legal name.

Gridlist uses this information to provide you with account services and communicate changes made to your account. Creating an account is optional, and you do not need to provide any personal information to Gridlist.

Data privacy

Your email address is private. Your username, display name, avatar, banner image, and library data is public. They may be visible to other people who use Gridlist.

Email policy

Gridlist will only send you critical emails. For example, you may receive a message when you register, change account settings, or log in to the site. If you no longer wish to receive account-related emails, you may delete your account. Gridlist does not have a "newsletter" or other marketing email lists. You may change your account email in your account settings.

Password policy

Gridlist accounts do not use passwords. Instead, when you log in or perform sensitive account tasks, we send you an email containing a temporary, one-time code that you will have to input into Gridlist.

Data storage

Gridlist stores account and system data in the United States on Amazon Web Services ("AWS"). You can read more about AWS data privacy.

In order to investigate and troubleshoot account issues, Gridlist administrators have access to the database and account data. When team members no longer need this level of access, we revoke it, even if that person otherwise remains a part of the Gridlist team.

Sign out

You can sign out of the Gridlist website by clicking on your avatar and then clicking "Sign out".

Payment Processing

You can sign up for optional, paid Gridlist services. If you do, the information in this section applies to you.

Data storage

Gridlist uses Stripe, Patreon, or Buy Me a Coffee to capture card information and process transactions. You can read more about their security policies here:

Personal information

To sign up for paid Gridlist services or make a donation, you will need to provide some required information, such as debit or credit card details. The payment information that you provide is securely captured by Stripe, Patreon, or Buy Me a Coffee. Gridlist team members can never see your full card number or card security code.

Legal Disclosure

Gridlist is bound by the law of the United States. We may be required to disclose personal information we have in order to comply with the legal process, protect or defend our rights or property, or protect the rights of others.

When we disclose information, we will do so only after reviewing the legal request carefully. We will seek to reject overly broad or unclear requests. And if we confirm that the request is valid and legal, we will disclose the narrowest amount of information required to comply.

If we must disclose your personal information in order to comply with the law, we will notify you as soon as we are able to.


If you have questions or concerns about this privacy information, please don't hesitate to contact us.
