queer.party's ToS page has been updated to include explicit policies on data collection and transmission. This is a preliminary policy that may be subject to changes as people point things out that I forgot about or worded wrongly. I'm not a lawyer so please be gentle :(
the tl;dr of it is: your data is yours, mastodon doesn't collect anything more than it needs to, any data made available externally to q.p is exclusively for federation purposes.
finally, fuck those people from the university of milan.
friends, I got this response back from the dataset's author regarding removal of information from it (cc @Siphonay):
@maffsie I'm making an explicit point of asking _anyone_ I slightly refer to (except for the authors of that research paper) before adding it or publishing. :D
@maffsie thank you!!!
A silly instance of Mastodon for queer folk and non-queer folk alike. Let's be friends!
