How do we use your data?

We use your data in order to show userstyle statistics.

How do we store your data?

We follow best practices when it comes to handling your data and store everything on our server.

The data used for userstyle statistics is anonymized by using a hash function with a secret key. It is not easily reversible without brute-forcing all public IP addresses in IPv4 address space in combination with the said secret key. This gives us decently accurate style statistics while respecting your privacy. The unique hash is formed like so:

# Formula:
record = IP + " " + StyleID
secret = SecretKey (string converted to bytes)
hashed = HashFunction(record, secret)

# Example:
record = "1.2.3.4 1"
secret = 73 33 63 72 33 37 6b 33 79 (s3cr37k3y)
hashed = HMAC-SHA512(record, secret)

# Result:
97a5abba601dd18829c33507ecf295bf0d2c05db06a3bf8af2c091dee0a8556500886443b59076057ffc5d8ad429d3d1de141e58684740729f3f24c7c435f7bb
