Boring stuff about data privacy probably don&#039;t care about any of this stuff. But in case you do...<br /> <br /> <strong>Overview</strong><br /> To support forum functionality like posting topics, replies, and personal messages, this forum collects some basic user data. Don&#039;t worry - the amount of data we collect is very limited and can be removed upon user request.<br /> <br /> <strong>Publicly-Visible Data</strong><br /> By registering an account, creating topics, or replying to other members&#039; posts, some user data will be stored on the server. Some basic information is publicly visible - for example, the date and time of posts, account creation, and most recent login.<br /> <br /> <strong>Publicly-Visible Data (User Control Panel)</strong><br /> Any personal information (such as your location, date of birth, gender, or contact information) is provided voluntarily and can be removed at any time without penalty (although if you don&#039;t list your birthday in your profile, it won&#039;t appear in the <a href="" rel="nofollow">forum calendar</a>).<br /> <br /> <strong>Data Visible to Forum Staff</strong><br /> Forum staff members may have access to the IP address of each post and account registration. Forum admins can view the e-mail address that a member used to register for the forums. This information is not personally identifiable, and we rarely look at this information unless we&#039;re banning a spam account.<br /> <br /> <strong>Personal Messaging</strong><br /> Personal messages (PMs) are visible only to the sender and recipient of the message. The Admin Control Panel does not include any way for staff members to view other members&#039; messages. However, the contents of PMs are not encrypted. For this reason, we don&#039;t recommend using PMs to transmit highly confidential information (although it&#039;s not likely you&#039;d be doing such a thing.)<br /> <br /> <strong>Data Removal</strong><br /> If there&#039;s a piece of data you don&#039;t want to be on the server, please talk to an admin. While we can&#039;t remove an account altogether, we can remove any piece of data that you don&#039;t want to be stored on the server. Keep in mind that post data may still be retained by search engines or archives like the Wayback Machine even after it&#039;s deleted on the original forums.<br /> <br /> <strong>Data Security</strong><br /> We take reasonable care to protect the confidentiality and integrity of user data by limiting the number of admins with access to private data.<br /> <br /> The forum&#039;s server is located somewhere in the United States (as of today, New York). The exact location may be subject to change.<br /> <br /> This is a nonprofit site, and we don&#039;t sell any user information for any reason.<br /> <br /> <strong>Cookies</strong><br /> We use cookies to store login data. It&#039;s possible that other sites may be able to access data stored in cookies, but you can dump your cookies at any time.<br /> <br /> <br /> (If some of this sounds familiar, there&#039;s a reason - it&#039;s almost the same as what I wrote for MFGG.)1Thu, 12 Apr 2018 19:27:26 -0400Nite: pretty standard really.<br /> No worries here.52Thu, 12 Apr 2018 20:34:35 -0400Thu, 19 Jul 2018 07:14:46 -0400
