Public information

You may select options available through our Service to publicly display and share your name and/or username and certain other information, such as your profile, demographic data, content and files, or geolocation data.

We expect you to reasonably secure information you have gathered from GitHub, and to respond promptly to complaints, removal requests, and "do not contact" requests from GitHub or GitHub users.

Organizations with which you engage

You may indicate, through your actions on GitHub, that you are willing to share your personal data. If you collaborate on or become a member of an organization, then its Account owners may receive your personal data.

Such processing by service providers will be in compliance with applicable law including any relevant transfer mechanism.

You may manage your communication preferences in your profile.

By design, the Git version control system associates many actions with a user's email address, such as commit messages. See more details regarding setting your commit email address.

Depending on your email settings, GitHub may occasionally send notification emails, for example, about changes in a repository you’re watching, new features, requests for feedback, important policy changes, or to offer customer support.
