No guarantees or warranties
While we make every attempt at providing quality content and services, we cannot make any explicit guarantees as to their fitness for any purpose unless specifically agreed in a separate contract. In the end, any service that you are not paying money for should be considered to be for educational purposes, and is not covered by any warranty or guarantee for any purpose. This applies to all documentation, code, downloads, APIs and applications.
If it’s free, it’s your responsibility to verify its fitness.

Some materials (where explicitly stated), including blog posts, example code and downloads are provided to you under the Creative Commons 4.0 (with attribution) license. In short, this allows you to freely use, modify and redistribute them without charge, although you have to quote the source (the URL of the blog or site, https://sqlsunday.com/, is sufficient).

Your trust and privacy are paramount to us, and we take it very seriously. The paragraphs below describes how we handle privacy issues, including how we work with personally identifiable information (PPI) and data that you share with us on our services, particularly with regards to GDPR.
What we collect
- Information you provide us with by filling in a contact form, an e-mail subscription or when you post a comment to a blog post or article.
- Anonymous details of your use of our sites, top-level domain (country code) and what links you clicked.
- Logs of requests to various webservice APIs, like the T-SQL Slack app, with personally identifiable information masked, hashed or redacted.
- Other data that you submit to us for processing, such as uploading files or data to an API or service. This data is not saved, unless specifically noted for the service.
How and why we use it
- We use personal information you provide to respond to your requests and to meet any contractual commitments to you.
- When a contractual commitment exists, we will store and process your personal data as required by applicable swedish and european law (for accounting and other purposes).
- We use website/API logs to understand which services are popular and which are not.
- We monitor our services to prevent or respond to security issues or programming errors.
- Some services connect to third party databases or APIs. In those cases, when you explicitly appoint that third party, the information you submit is also transmitted to that third party.
We never share personally identifiable information (PPI) with any third party unless you specifically consent to this.
How we store and protect it
We do our best to use industry-standard security measures and best practices to ensure the security of any data we store, including but not limited to up-to-date software, encryption at rest, encryption in transit, two-factor authentication and strong passwords. Where required by applicable law, processing of information is audited and logged.
All our services and systems operate on leading cloud services, Google Cloud Platform and Microsoft Azure. Those platforms, in turn, have a number of automated security features and alerts in place. No data transmissions over the Internet are ever completely secure, however, we use SSL and similar security measures to minimize the risk of transmission breaches.
When we share information
In some places, we will provide links to other sites (third-party links). Those links do not adhere to the same privacy rules, as they are not under our control. We cannot accept any responsibility for third-party links.
What you can do
Reporting security issues or problems
We would love to hear from you if you discover a security issue, vulnerability or other problem with our sites and services. We commit to responding as soon as possible and treating your feedback in good faith as long as you have not exploited or contributed to the issue yourself.
Please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or use our contact form to reach us.
