Taxonomies for Confluence Data Security and Privacy Statement

Last updated: June 13, 2022

Dalston Semantics Ltd (“us”, “we”, or “our”) operates the Taxonomies for Confluence add-on at (the “Service”).

This page informs you of our policies regarding the collection, use, disclosure and safeguarding of data when you use the Service.

Data Collection And Use

Personal Data

We do not collect or store any Personal Data when you use the Service.

Audit capabilities in the Service are implemented by storing the Atlassian accountID of the user along with the details of the user action (such as importing a taxonomy or indexing a Confluence page). To display action history, user details are retrieved from Atlassian, although may be cached in memory by the Service temporarily to improve performance.

Since we do not collect any Personal Data, we do not share it with third parties.

User Content

We use metadata such as characteristics and the number of taxonomies that you import to improve the Service.

Automatically Logged Data

The Service collects the IP address, date, time, type, size, page address of the request and time it took to process the request. It also collects the response code and size of the response. We use this data to diagnose issues and improve the Service.


We use Microsoft Azure to deliver the Service with Microsoft responsible for securing physical datacenter, network and hosts. For more information on Microsoft Azure compliance see

We authenticate and authorise all requests so only you can access the taxonomies that you imported.

We use the Atlassian Connect READ and WRITE scopes for the Service to ensure that in the event of a security breach an attacker can not perform administrative operations or delete content in Confluence.

We use storage with industry-standard encryption to secure data at rest and further encrypt Atlassian Connect shared secret using industry-standard encryption algorithms and regularly rotated encryption keys.

We use HTTPS and TLS to secure communication with the Service.

A limited number of accounts have access to the production environment to maintain the service and assist customers. These accounts are protected with multi-factor authentication.

We take backups of your data every 24 hours and retain it for 30 days. We use storage with industry-standard encryption to secure backup data.
