What is Wallace Cloud?

Our website address is:

What personal data we collect and why we collect it


When visitors upload files or leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If you upload images directly to or the Nextcloud, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Other visitors to these websites can download and extract any location data from these uploaded images.

Contact forms


If you leave a comment on you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you visit the login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Virtually all embedded content will either be YouTube videos, Google Forums, or pages from William’s external website. Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


Who we share your data with

Literally no one… with one exception. If you choose to upload something so ridiculously stupid or funny that William gets a laugh out of it, he may share it with his friends to his heart’s content.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. Like, forever. William hasn’t deleted a file since 2010 and keeps redundant backups of everything. This is just for the sake off archival for future generations and so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on Wallace Cloud’s Nextcloud service (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators (aka William) can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service. Again, if you choose to upload something so ridiculously stupid or funny that William gets a laugh out of it, he may share it with his friends to his heart’s content.

Your contact information

Is retained, if provided, with the rest of your data in the Wallace Cloud Nextcloud.

Additional information

How we protect your data

William’s servers are pretty secure software-wise and hardware-wise. Use the contact page if you want more info, lol.

What data breach procedures we have in place

William will shutdown all Wallace Cloud services to contain any potential data breach. Those responsible will be sacked post haste.

What third parties we receive data from

Nothing to see here. We don’t associate with any third parties besides

What automated decision making and/or profiling we do with user data

Your data allowance/quota on Wallace Cloud may change at anytime. Most users are allocated 20GB of storage on the Nextcloud server, but that is subject to change at a moment’s notice and nothing is guaranteed.
