What personal data we collect

Your information such as username, email-address, telephone number, and other information provided when you sign up will be stored in our database. We will never sell or share this data to any third party or other persons than Coding Mammoth BV. We will not use your data for any other project of Coding Mammoth BV. We will do our best to protect your data so nobody will be able to get access to your private data. If you delete your account, your personal data will be removed after 6 months (see Term of service). This will allow you to reactivate your account without losing any data within those 6 months. All data that we have is always accessible or available on request via our dashboard, Supervisor, or by contacting us.

Your personal account password will be hashed and stored in our database. Since we use one-way hashes, third party cannot re-hash the hashed passwords to recover your original password. For more information about hashes and security, please consult the following article on Wikipedia: Cryptographic hash functions.

The passwords on status pages are not encrypted nor hashed. We decided to not encrypt them because it allows you to see your current password at the portal, as the main concept of protecting status pages is to share this password with your customers and clients. Normally, this will not cause any security problems. For more information contact us at

As explained, the data we save is generic account data (such as username, email address and address). This data can be reviewed at the portal via the account page, and changed at any time. We save a hashed version of your account password. Semonto performs tests on your servers and websites. This data is stored and used for analytics via the portal on your request. This type of data wont be sold to third parties. Payment data is only stored at our payment provider as listed before. Semonto only stores an overview of the last invoices. The only PII information Semonto has are email addresses, phone numbers and IP addresses.

Semonto works with sessions. Those sessions are hashed and are limited in time. This means that after a period of inactivity, your session will be destroyed automatically and you will need to log in again. When a connection is closed, the session will be deleted automatically after a period of time.


We use small text files called cookies for the sessions. Those cookies are used only to identify the customer, not to identify any specific customer traits. These cookies do not store sensitive data, and will expire along with the session. See our cookie policy for more information.

The historical data of the tests performed on your servers or websites will only be available through your status URL and/or through your status pages (which can be password protected in the portal).
