This can be divided into two categories;
A verified user account is required to submit fail2ban data to the API. This is used to reduce spam by asking users to verify their email address before allowing API access.

Username - To login with Password - To login with Email - To verify the account

This data is stored permanently to provide the Service and a copy without UUID or API key data is publicly available for download.
