## Why is it whitelisted?
## Block rule
To not break the Web. [Amazon S3 is one of the largest content delivery networks in the world](https://gigaom.com/2012/04/20/just-how-big-is-the-amazon-cloud-anyway/).
Although the content itself is allowed to load, we block cookies to make sure that it does not track people.
## Decentralised alternatives
Amazon S3 is interoperable. The Amazon S3 API is implemented by competing providers, including several free and open implementations
* [Skylable](http://www.skylable.com) (née LibreS3)
* [Minio](https://www.minio.io)
* [Riak CS](https://github.com/basho/riak_cs)

## Further details
* According to [Amazon’s Data Privacy FAQ for Amazon Web Services](https://aws.amazon.com/compliance/data-privacy-faq/), they “do not access or use customer content for any purpose other than as legally required and for maintaining the AWS services and providing them to our customers and their end users.”
