The Technical & Privacy Stuff…

Posted by Cedeon Design. Categories: .

Q: Why is the contact form taking so long?

A: We had to deal with spam but didn’t want to add a ‘prove you’re a human’, CAPTCHA as we believe humans should not have to pay for the actions of robots! We wanted a system where humans do zero work so we decided to roll our own, which is based on a proof of work scheme. Once you click on send your computing device will attempt to solve a complex cryptographic problem – the hope being that it will at least slow down spammers. The downside of this method is its slower if you are on a mobile device than a desktop PC. We’re balancing this trade off. If it bothers you please get in touch via email and we’ll look into it.


 

Our stance on privacy, security, ethics and all about measures we’ve taken in this regard.

Rather than the usual corporate spiel you can gather how we feel about this topic by our actions.  We take your privacy so seriously that we’ve implemented multiple technical features on this site to safeguard your privacy and security.  A non exhaustive list is as follows :-

  • Implemented HTTPS throughout the site, with ‘Strict Transport Security’ enabled which means we do not serve plain text connections, at all, ever.
  • We have no ‘required’ fields on our contact form.  Give us whatever information you feel comfortable with – i.e. want us to call you ‘Captain Awesome’? go ahead and put that in the contact form.  Obviously it helps if you give us a legitimate way to respond, ( even if that is a mailinator address! ).
  •  We accept anonymous digital cash payments in the form of Bitcoin  (other ‘Internet of money’ currencies accepted on request).
  • We work under N.D.A. , secret projects & are generally comfortable establishing trust and confidence.
  • We run a tor hidden service.  We don’t because we haven’t run into the need for one but we’re open to doing it.
  • We’re avid enthusiasts of information security in general.  We endeavor to stay current and are avid listeners of The risky business and security now podcasts.
  • We have a PGP key (see below)


Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies

We support and promote Bitcoin, alt-coins and decentralized banking in general.  If you think you would like to pay us this way instead please let us know beforehand and we’ll discuss an incentivized discount.

If you’re an international customer (outside U.K. legal jurisdiction) we may insist on using cryptocurrencies to work with you.  We’re open to full escrow contracts too.
