Starchive was created by creatives for creatives because we believe that creatives should be in control of their art and stories.

Privacy is paramount

Let’s face it, generally, if the product is free, it is because you are the product. We believe that model sucks and feels gross. We have a different model altogether. We will never capitalize on, market from, or sell your data to anyone period. We would never sell our own data how could we live with selling yours? We will do everything we can to delight you as a customer, to make our product a trusted and valuable addition to your digital life. And, if we do our job right, you will become a loyal paying customer when the time is right for you.


You never sell or even SEE my data?

That’s right. The only data we do collect is data that is specifically needed to make Starchive work better for you. We think of it like this: If everything you’ve uploaded to Starchive was kept in a physical box – with a lock on it – we could see how many boxes you have or maybe a log with when you brought the last box in, but we don’t have the key to open the boxes.

And what we can see, we aren’t sharing with anyone. We are truly a privacy-first data management system. If you ever have questions about what data we are looking at, using, saving, or sharing, just email us. We’re real people, and we’d love to chat with you about this.
