Respect for privacy Does the tool require registration? Who can see my data? Can I remain anonymous?

Medium. Coggle’s privacy policy indicates that personal information collected is limited to what is necessary for the operation of the service, such as name, email address, avatar, gender (if declared), and language settings. This aligns with the data minimization principle. Coggle’s policy is transparent about data sharing and privacy settings. It could nonetheless provide more information on security measures. Users have control over their diagrams' privacy settings and can choose whether diagrams are public or private. They can also close their accounts to delete personal information. While the policy generally complies with the principle of compliance, it could specify the relevant data protection laws that apply. For example, GDPR is not mentioned. See more here.
