Legal Notice and Contact Information

Hello there!

CSTOOL.io is a cloud native open source project. The source code is available in its entirety on GitHub.

The service you are currently using is a privately operated website operating on secure cloud services at redundant locations within the European Union. The static content (images, text and program code running in your web browser) is transmitted to you from a world-wide content delivery network (CDN) to ensure the best possible performance. All online services are privately maintained by Alexander Koderman who can be contacted at aKoderman@CSTOOL.io.

If you have questions or concerns regarding the use of your personal data please feel free to send an email. You may also use any of the other contact options listed on the main page. The following legal notice serves to be as transparent as possible on how your data is being used by this site. It is also supposed to avoid misunderstandings with lawyers and the costly resolution of warning letters.

CVE is a registred trademark of the MITRE Corporation. The usage of CVE data is subject to the MITRE CVE terms of use. Please refer to the official CVE information published by MITRE as the only authoritative source.

Ads and Financing

CSTOOL.io is privately operated. Thanks to our sponsors, we do not have to run ads to finance the cost of providing and maintaining the site. We would very much like to keep it that way. CSTOOL.io uses a number of different cloud services: Google Kubernetes Engine, MongoDB Atlas, Azure Cognitive Services, AWS S3, SES and Cloudfront. All of these cost money. Without our sponsors we would not be able to run this service. If you find this site useful and want to support further development please consider becoming a sponsor. We will greatly appreciate any contribution!
