Hi, an account has been created for me via freecodecamp on the codeally.io, but as I could not get the site to work, I have decided to close/delete my account as per GDPR. I have spent a long time to figure out how can I contact this company. There is no phone number, email address, nothing. Any ideas how to request account removal there?
They are a completely separate company, so I’m not sure how to reach them. Have you tried via the Facebook, Linkedin, or GitHub links at the bottom of their pages?
The terms of service suggest that accounts can be deleted on the website, but I can’t find any way to do so. They do also say that accounts can be deleted by contacting
I’ve emailed them to see if I can get my account removed.
Try this email - email@example.com
Thanks for reporting @vidriduch - I will contact them to see if any of those emails are valid and report back. I will also create an issue for them to add a way to delete accounts.
Hi. Did you have any luck with this? I had no reply from the ’ firstname.lastname@example.org’ email address so far. Looking on the Github, most of the repos are more or less dead with no connection to the main website. Also, what I found weird is that this page seems to be some sort of Job Search app, so I’m not really sure why is this being connected to the FreeCodeCamp course in the first place.
The CodeAlly service is what freecodecamp uses to embed the editor in the browser, and the account is needed for saving progress
Yes, that’s correct, but you should make it clear to users that they are registering to a job advertising/data collecting website and their data might be used there.
Yes, I agree that the freeCodeCamp accounts shouldn’t be subscribed to their other services
Update here - I did create an issue around this to let them know. I will make another issue around having freeCodeCamp make things clearer. Just to clarify @vidriduch, it was the email@example.com email that they responded to?
Yes, and got reply from gentleman called Adam Żaczek (founder) from email address firstname.lastname@example.org
