This privacy policy ("Privacy Policy") applies to all visitors and users of the GanttLab.com hosted services and websites (collectively, the "Website" or "Websites") and self-managed installations, which are offered by GanttLab and/or any of its affiliates ("GanttLab" or "we" or "us"). Please read this Privacy Policy carefully. By accessing or using any part of the Websites or self-managed installations, you acknowledge you have been informed of and consent to our practices with regard to your personal information and data.

What Information GanttLab Collects and Why

Information from Website Visitors

Like most website operators, GanttLab collects basic non-personally-identifying information from Website visitors of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. We collect this information to better understand how visitors use the Website, to improve our Websites and experience for visitors, and to monitor the security of the Websites. From time to time, GanttLab may publicly release non-personally-identifying information collected from Website visitors in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of the Website.

GanttLab also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses from visitors. GanttLab does not use such information to identify or track individual visitors, however. We collect this information to understand how visitors use the Websites, to improve performance and content, and to monitor the security of the Websites.

GanttLab may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to our Websites. For instance, GanttLab may reveal how many times a particular view was displayed using aggregated statistics that contain anonymous user information only.

Personally-Identifying Information

Users of the Websites may choose to interact with GanttLab in ways that provide us with their personally-identifying information. In some instances, a User ID is generated for form and url tracking, page views, page pings and usage counts in order to ascertain product performance and development. The amount and type of information that GanttLab gathers depends on the nature of your interaction with us, as well as the amount of information you choose to share. For example, we collect the information you provide with us in connection with subscribing to our newsletter. If you report a security vulnerability to GanttLab and request public acknowledgement, then we may publicly disclose the personal information you provided to us in connection with the report, including your name to fulfill your request for acknowledgement. In each case, GanttLab collects such personally-identifiable information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the user’s interaction with or request of GanttLab. We will not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described in this Privacy Policy.

Visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent you from engaging in certain Website-related activities or being able to access and use certain features and services.

Information GanttLab Does Not Collect

GanttLab does not intentionally collect sensitive personal information, such as social security numbers, genetic data, health information, or religious information.

Basis for Processing Your Information

Performance of a contract. The use of your information may be necessary to perform the contract that you have with us. For example, if you request information through our Websites, we will use your information to carry out our obligation to complete and administer that contract or request.

Legitimate interests. We use your information for our legitimate interests, such as to provide you with the best content through our Websites and communications with users and the public, to improve and promote our products and services, and for administrative, security, fraud prevention and legal purposes.

Consent. We may rely on your consent to use your personal information for certain direct marketing purposes, such as sending you newsletter updates about GanttLab. You may withdraw your consent at any time through the unsubscribe feature provided with each marketing email or by contacting us at the address given below in the "Contacting GanttLab About Your Privacy" section of this Privacy Policy.

How GanttLab Uses and Protects Personally-Identifying Information

Sharing Your Information

Ganttlab only discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to those of its employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Ganttlab's behalf or to provide services available on the Website, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others.

Ganttlab will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations, as described above, Ganttlab discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Ganttlab believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Ganttlab, third parties, or the public at large.

Ganttlab takes measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

International Transfer of Information

The Websites are hosted on distributed infrastructure across the World, and information we collect will be stored and processed on any of those distributed servers across the World. Our employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that process information for us as described above may be located in any country outside of your home country; by using the Websites, you consent to the international transfer of your information by GanttLab.

GanttLab Communications with You

If you send us a request (for example via email), we reserve the right to publish your request in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. We will not publish your personally-identifiable information in connection with your request.

Cookies, Tracking Technologies and Do Not Track


A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor's computer, and that the visitor's browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. GanttLab uses cookies to help GanttLab identify and track visitors, their usage of the Websites, and their Website access preferences. GanttLab visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers may set their browsers to refuse cookies before using the Websites. Disabling browser cookies may cause certain features of GanttLab's websites to not function properly.

Certain pages on the Website may set other third party cookies. For example, we may embed content, such as images, from another site that sets a cookie. These sites set their own cookies and we do not have access or control over these cookies. The use of cookies by third parties is not covered by our Privacy Policy.

Tracking Technologies

We use third party tracking services, but we don’t use these services to track you individually or collect your personally identifiable-information. We use these services to collect information about how the Website performs and how users navigate through and use the Website so we can monitor and improve our content and Website performance.

Third party tracking services gather certain simple, non-personally identifying information over time, such as your IP address, browser type, internet service provider, referring and exit pages, timestamp, and similar data about your use of the Website. We do not link this information to any of your personal information such as your user name.

Do Not Track

"Do Not Track" is a privacy preference you can set in your browser. GanttLab does respect this setting by totally disabling Tracking Technologies accordingly.

Global Privacy Practices

Information we collect will be stored and processed in any country of the World in accordance with this Privacy Policy and we understand that users may have different expectations and rights with regard to their privacy. For all Websites visitors and users, no matter their country of location, we will:

  • provide clear methods of unambiguous, informed consent when we do collect your personal information;
  • only collect the minimum amount of personal data necessary for the purpose it is collected for, unless you choose to provide us more;
  • offer you simple methods of accessing, correcting, or deleting your information that we have collected, with the exception of information you voluntarily provide that is necessary to retain as is for the integrity of our project code as described further below; and
  • provide Website users notice, choice, accountability, security, and access, and we limit the purpose for processing. We also provide our users a method of recourse and enforcement.

If you are located in the European Union, you are entitled to the following rights with regard to your personal information and data:

  • Right of access to your personal data, to know what information about you we hold
  • Right to correct any incorrect or incomplete personal data about yourself that we hold
  • Right to restrict/suspend our processing of your personal data
  • Right to complain to a supervisory authority if you believe your privacy rights are being violated

Additional rights that may apply to you in certain instances:

  • Right of data portability (if our processing is based on consent and automated means)
  • Right to withdraw consent at any time (if processing is based on consent)
  • Right to object to processing (if processing is based on legitimate interests)
  • Right to object to processing of personal data for direct marketing purposes
  • Right of erasure of your personal data from our system (“right to be forgotten”) if certain grounds are met

To exercise your privacy rights, you can email us at the address given below in the "Contacting GanttLab About Your Privacy" section of this Privacy Policy.

Data Retention and Deletion

Please note that due to the open source nature of our products, services, and community, we may retain limited personally-identifiable information indefinitely in order to ensure transactional integrity and nonrepudiation. For example, if you contribute to a GanttLab project and provide your personal information in connection with that contribution, that information (including your name) will be embedded and publicly displayed with your contribution and we will not be able to delete or erase it because doing so would break the project code.

Contacting GanttLab About Your Privacy

If we decide to make a significant change to our Privacy Statement, we will post a notice on the homepage of our website for a period of time after the change is made.

GanttLab encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any minor changes to its Privacy Policy. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
