- von Firefox-Benutzer 11391270, vor 4 JahrenBewertet mit 2 von 5 SternenIf you install this addon and open settings, it will open the following - remotely hosted - URL: ttps://feeder.co/settings/feeds?ctx=extension where you can manage your feeds (local configuration is not possible)
This remotely hosted website somehow magically knows all feeds you have added (even though I have not registered or anything else). This is quite surprising because I installed this program on my local machine and expected that it operates locally, not remotely. But this addon must have transferred my personal data to the feeder company (the feeds I have added etc.) so that they know which ones to show when feeder addon redirects me to their website. From the Cambridge Analytica scandal we know that knowing someones website preferences tells you much about the personality - hence it is personal data.
Antwort des Entwicklersgeschrieben am vor 4 JahrenHello! I’m Erik, the creator of Feeder. Thanks so much for your review. I’m glad you gave our software a test run. Unfortunately, your review is wrong in so many ways that it makes me a bit sad to be honest. If you do not log in, no feeds are transfered to our servers. The settings page works by using client-side code to communicate with your local install of Feeder, just like a locally hosted settings page would work. No magic, no magic GDPR violation, we don’t know your feeds and we don’t want to if you don’t want us to. If you have any questions on how this magic works we’d gladly answer them here or on our support: firstname.lastname@example.org
