Hosting, GDPR, Privacy Information

  • The content on is hosted on Amazon Web Services and dispatched via various edge locations (Cloudfront) around the globe. We enable "all" edge locations to minimize hops and latency, and because you are worth it :)

  • Access logs for content hosting are disabled in the AWS configuration, and we are not aware of any user tracking present in this configuration. Only aggregate statistics are provided, most notably, aggregated referrer information on a domain level, and aggregated visitor information on a country level, such as:               75.55%
    Not Specified           19.12%    2.41%          0.55%
    United States           30.53%
    Germany                 9.38%
    United Kingdom          6.24%
  • Unfortunately, at the time of writing, we use embedded fonts that are hosted on Google Fonts (help with fixing that would be greatly appreciated!). No cookies are retained to our knowledge. Google has an entry on this matter: What does using the Google Fonts API mean for the privacy of my users?.

  • The Edit & Run feature of the "Hello, Rust" section embeds the Rust Playground. All code entered there is sent to and processed on their servers.

  • The user's local storage may be used for storing user settings between sessions (e.g., dark mode, ligatures). This information never leaves the user's machine.

  • Supporting developer assets and metadata are usually hosted on Github so their privacy and tracking legalese applies.

We use the following model:

tl;dr, if you want to

  • copy a Rust snippet or example: CC0, just do it
  • copy or embed the entire site: CC-BY, please give credit (also to 3rd party assets, see below).

In detail, this cheat sheet ("work") consists of:

  • text (tables, guides, Rust code) addressing language-related content viewable on ("content")
  • code (Markdown, HTML, CSS), logos, graphics, assets and the resulting presentation ("supporting assets")
  • metadata, such as the real names of contributors (e.g., on Github or the site), information from the Git repo, any other information not directly related to end-user content ... ("metadata")

The content of this work is licensed as CC0 from the European Union, with contributions from all over the world.

Supporting assets produced by this project are CC-BY. Third party supporting assets retain their original license.

Metadata is not governed by any of these licenses.

Third Party Assets

These assets are shipped with the site.
