I’ve asked this question in a couple public forums and I didn’t get any reply. Trying here:
I understand that it is a local application that manages local files, but it is also not open source and there’s no clear terms or guarantees. The only legal statement is a license that protects Obsidian.
For an applciation of this nature (having access to private data) I think there should be some kind of effort to recognize user privacy.
According to the license, it appears Obsidian is a Dynalist property of some kind. Do the Dynalist privacy policies apply to Obsidian?
Until we have Obsidian Sync or Obsidian Publish, we don’t intend to release them for now:
Right now, we aren’t offering any “service”, so there isn’t a terms associated with anything. Once Sync or Publish is live, we’ll have terms for those.
The EULA mentions Dynalist since it’s developed by the same developers and we have not yet registered another legal entity for Obsidian.
