I'm thinking about developing an open-source web application where users can enter trips that they have done (touristic or commuting) and then view statistics and maps created from this data. From the answer to my previous question I have concluded that it would not be realistic to host this application on a server myself because I would be personally liable if there is a data breach.
What other options are there? Here's what I have thought of:
- Something like sandstorm.io, if I have understood the concept correctly. It's shutting down at the end of this year though.
- Make it a mobile application (Android/iOS). The user data would then be stored on the user's phone. I really would like it to be accessible via a computer too.
- Set up a company, to make sure that I'm not personally liable (that's how I have understood the concept of a company). That would be a lot of work though.
Are there any other options?
