Our website is open-source and available for anyone (who understands PHP) to view and audit. We do not use Google Analytics or any other analytics/tracking (unless you count server logs mentioned above) on our site.

[...]

All information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers in the Netherlands (Greenhost.net). Sensitive data in our database such as your recipient email addresses are encrypted using OpenSSL and the AES-256-CBC cipher. Furthermore, all encrypted values are signed with a message authentication code (MAC) to detect any modifications to the encrypted string. Two Factor Authentication (2FA) is also available on our site and we encourage users to enable it.

Opportunistic DANE TLS encryption with strong cipher preference is used for all emails sent through our service. Our mail server also utilises STARTTLS, PFS, DNSSEC, MTA-STS, TLS-RPT, DMARC, SPF and DKIM. These measures help to protect emails sent to/from our server against MiTM (Man in The Middle) downgrade attacks and also against the risk of email forgery.

Our site also uses security features such as; HSTS (HTTP Strict Transport Security), a strict CSP (Content Security Policy), Subresource Integrity, Expect CT and XSS Protection.

No service can be 100% secure at all times so please do not use this service to forward emails containing highly sensitive information such as bank or cryptocurrency information.

We take all measures reasonably necessary to protect against unauthorised access, use, alteration or desctruction of data.

Collection

Is it clear why the service collects the personal data that it does? Yes

10/10

Decided May 18, 2020 (revision history). This question accounts for 12% of the final score.

This question deals with transparency. Even if the service uses data for reasons that aren't ideal for privacy, provided they list all of those uses, the service can still receive full credit for this question. However, if they are not explicit about their uses (by employing language like "such as"), a lower score is assigned.

Does the service allow third-party access to private personal data? No

10/10

Decided May 18, 2020 (revision history). This question accounts for 12% of the final score.

This may come in the form of outright data sharing or by using local third-party analytics software (such as Google Analytics, which collects a plethora of user information).

Note that whether the policy allows sharing aggregated user data does not affect this question.

If the personal data is encrypted when it passes through the third-party, it does not count as third-party access (as the data is inaccessible to that party).

If personal data has been made public by, for example, posting it to a blog, it does not count as private personal information (and is therefore not considered by this question).
