Privacy Policy

Information we collect

To provide Bolt, we need to collect information about you. The amount of information we collect may include the following:

Data storage

Bolt stores data on an Oracle VM in Toronto, Canada. We do not provide third parties access to this data, except Oracle, Inc., who may access this data to support us in operating Bolt. We backup encrypted copies of our data to Microsoft Onedrive.

Data protection practices

We try to protect your information as best as we can. We do not share your information with third parties unless needed to provide Bolt. If you allow us to share your information with other third parties, we may share your information with those third parties. If we learn that we have collected information about a minor, we will delete that information immediately and to the extent possible. If we are made aware of unauthorized sharing of your information, we will notify you immediately and try to take action against those responsible.

Requesting your data

If you want a copy of your data, your data deleted, or to ask questions about the data used by Bolt, please email bolt-data@williamhorning.dev.

Government Agencies and Law Enforcement

Government Agencies and Law enforcement agencies may request that we share information with them, and we want to balance user privacy and government requests.

When we receive a request from a Government Agency to share data, we will carefully review the request to ensure it follows the laws of all applicable jurisdictions. Additionally, we will only provide the information necessary to comply and only if it is not a privacy risk.

If we believe that we can prevent or reduce the risk of harm by sharing information with Government Agencies, we may share information with those agencies. We still review these requests to make sure they comply with our policies and applicable laws.

If we get a request from a Government Agency regarding you, we will notify you as soon as possible unless legally prohibited. We will not notify you if a request is related to an emergency until after the emergency has passed.
