About Us

albinoloverats is a software development company committed to developing decent, reliable software. Releasing our source code under the terms of the GNU General Public License allows us to achieve this through your help: you are encouraged to assist and improve our products (fixing bugs, suggesting—or even writing—improvements). We're not trying for the most flashy (cluttered) products, or the most colourful (goofy) looking interface, but to show that simplicity is often the best method—to do one thing and do it well—the original Unix way. Computers were designed to make life easier; why should you have to search through menu after menu to find what you're looking for when all you need to do is type (or possibly click) and go?! We aim to provide simple, clean, effective applications to ease your work.

Our focus is on security software for individual users; your work is your work, keep it that way, don't let anyone else steal you idea. “security is not something you can buy; it is something you must get” — Bruce Schneier.

Cookies / Offline Storage

This site uses cookies to keep track of users who are logged in. Only four cookies are set: one is a session ID, the second is a user ID, third is an activity indicater, and the final cookie is for autocomplete of the login username field. The first three are required to prove you are who you say you are (who you logged in as). The first three are all cleared when you log out, or when your session times out. The default session length is one hour, but it user configurable. The username cookie persists (for upto a year) so that when you go to login, the username field is filled for you. Additionaly 3rd party websites may try to set cookies for social media sharing and advertising purposes. These are easy to avoid using a hosts file to block access to the advertising domains, or a browser plugin such as Disconnect.

Offline storage is used to cache all non-changing resources: images, stylesheets, scripts, and fonts. This is purely to speed up page loads as a lot of these resouces are large, particularly the logo and fonts.
