Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy governs the manner in which collects, uses, maintains and discloses information collected from users (each, a "User") of the website ("Site").

Personal identification information

We will collect personal identification information from Users (their email address) only if they voluntarily submit such information to us when they register an account on the site. Users are not obliged to offer their email address when registering, but if they do choose to provide it, it will only be used for password retrieval purposes in the case that the User forgets their password and needs to reset it, and potentially to notify users in the event that these Terms of Service or Privacy Policy are updated. Users may also visit our Site anonymously and browse without creating an account.

IP addresses are stored for all Users for a period of 7 days, until midnight on the seventh day, when this data is automatically released. IP addresses of Users that have been banned Site-wide by Site administrators for violating our policies will be retained until said Users are unbanned or we no longer require the data to secure the Site from their spam or abuse.

Non-personal identification information

We may collect non-personal identification information about Users whenever they interact with our Site. This non-personal identification information is simply any headers your browser makes available to us. This information will only be used to identify and ban spammers and trolls.

Web browser cookies

Our Site may use two "cookies" to enhance User experience. These cookies are named "PHPSESSID" and "REMEMBERME". User's web browser places these cookies on their hard drive so that they remain logged in to the site on return visits. User may choose to set their web browser to refuse cookies, or to alert you when cookies are being sent, and instead log in manually each visit. Cookies are only used in so far as they are required for the technical working of the system, and we never use them to track you on third party sites.

How we use collected information may collect and use Users personal information for the following purposes:

To run and operate our Site, each User is identified by their IP address, this allows us to remove spammers and trolls more effectively by banning their IP addresses. Your IP addresses will only be stored by our Site for 7 days, whereupon each IP address will be automatically released at midnight on the seventh day. The only exception to this is Users that are "IP banned" by the site administrators. We will store the IPs of users that are banned site-wide for as long as we need to in order to prevent spam and abuse, or until they are unbanned.

We will use the provided email address to allow Users to reset their passwords.

How we protect your information

We adopt appropriate data collection, storage and processing practices and security measures to protect against unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure or destruction of your email address, username and password stored on our Site.

Sharing your personal information
