Who we are

The Mage-OS Association is a non-profit association formed by people within the Magento community to represent and further the interests of that community as a whole: Merchants, developers, agencies, and all of the many people supporting and supported by this ecosystem.

We are fully committed to protecting your personal information and we take your privacy seriously. This policy sets out what information we collect, why we collect it, how long we keep the data for and also your rights. 

Our website address is: https://mage-os.org/


When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.


Our Cookie Consent platform, CookieYes, uses a necessary (functionally required) cookie called cookieyes-consent to manage your consent status. If you accept cookies via CookieYes (using the cookie notice on screen), then our Google Analytics implementation will add two further cookies _ga and _ga_SHPYWZSV00, which allows us to track your page visits and on-page interactions.

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Who we share your data with

If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email.

We use the services of the company mailerlite.com to allow visitors to add their name posts to signal support. The visitors, name, email and – if specified – company name will be sent to mailerlite.com via their API.
They will store and process this information according to the mailerlite.com privacy policy which can be found at https://www.mailerlite.com/legal/privacy-policy.
By confirming the signature through the double-opt-in email, a signing visitor might be sending additional data to mailerlite, like the IP address, mail agent and viewing preferences. Again, this data is also subject to the mailerlite privacy-policy.

Beside mailerlite, we will not give any other third party access to the visitor name, email address and company name.
We reserve the right to send an email to all signees in future to inform about significant developments in regards to the future of Magento Open Source.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

If requested by the owner of the email via a message to info@mage-os.org, we will remove their name from the signature list should someone choose to change their mind.

For further questions regarding the collection and use of personal data, please contact info@mage-os.org.
