Introduction

We value the privacy of our Visitors and Registered Users. We do not display your personal information without your authorization. We also do not share your personal information with anyone except when required to comply with the law or protect our rights.

This document details the types of personal information collected and recorded by the Game and Site and how we use this information. This privacy policy applies only to activities on the Site and Game and is valid for both Visitors and Registered Users. This policy does not apply to any information collected outside of the Site or Game.

Log Files

The Game only collects minimal data required to run a session of the Game. No personally identifiable data is ever collected or recorded through the Game.

The Site utilizes files to log both Visitor and Registered User actions on the Site, a common procedure in web hosting. The information contained in these logs includes, without limitation, internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, date/time stamps, and referring/requesting pages. Additionally, the software running this forum logs other information, such as historical versions of user profile settings and messages. Such logs are only accessible to moderators and administrators of the forum. All of this data may be used for analysis, site administration, and gathering demographic information. None of the information in these logs is linked to anything personally identifiable.

Cookies

Cookies are small files stored on your computer by your web browser (such as Internet Explorer or Firefox) at the request of a site you are viewing. This allows the site you're viewing to remember things about you, such as your preferences and history or to keep you logged in. Cookies may be stored on your computer for a short time (such as only while your browser is open) or for an extended period of time, even years. Cookies not set by the Site will not be accessible to us.

Our Cookie Usage

The Site uses cookies for numerous things, including the following:

  • Registration and maintaining your preferences. This includes ensuring that you can stay logged in and keeping the site in the language or appearance that you requested.
  • Analytics. The Site uses its own analytics software. Additionally, we use Google Analytics, a web analysis tool provided by Google. It records data such as what website you came from, how long you stayed, and what kind of computer you used. The personal data collected are cookie and usage data. No personally identifiable information is recorded. We use this information to better understand our user base, which allows us to continue improving the Game and Site. If you do not want your data used by Google Analytics, you can install the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on. Please visit Google's Privacy Policy for more information.
  • Advertising cookies (third-party). Third-party vendors, including Google, use cookies to serve ads based on a user's prior visits to the Site. Google's use of the DoubleClick cookie enables it and its partners to serve ads to our Visitors and Registered Users based on their visit to the Site and/or other sites on the Internet. No personally identifiable information is recorded. The Site has no access to or control over these third-party advertising cookies. You may opt out of the use of the DoubleClick cookie for interest-based advertising by visiting Ads Settings. Please visit Google’s Privacy Policy for more information.
  • Other third-party cookies for things like Facebook or Twitter sharing. These cookies will generally be set by the third party independently, and the Site will have no ability to access them.

Removing/Disabling Cookies

Managing your cookies and cookie preferences must be done from within your browser's options/preferences. Here is a list of guides on how to do this for popular browser software:

The Site Forums

Visitors can view messages (threads, comments, polls, etc.) that are posted on the forum. At our discretion, some forum content may become restricted or unrestricted to certain members groups (e.g. moderators or developers). To register an account on the Site, the only personal information required is a valid email and date of birth.

We do not sell or give this information to any third parties. Registered users may receive emails from us, but they can opt out of site mailings in their account privacy settings. Additionally, Registered Users' emails are kept private, but Registered Users can display their date of birth publicly or keep it private.

The Site Profiles

Registered Users have the ability to input and set certain information publicly or privately on their profiles via their account settings on the Site. Additionally, Registered Users can opt in or out of certain features, such as receiving site mailings or showing current activity.

NOTE: Information kept private on the Site may still be accessed by forum moderators, forum administrators, or server administrators. We advise our Registered Users not to input or post anything that they would not want to be seen.

Personal Conversations

On the Site, personal conversations, which are available to Registered Users on the Site, are not public to other Visitors or Registered Users. They are exclusive to the Registered Users in the conversation, except under exceptional circumstances (see below).

Our policy is not to read personal conversations or allow any third-party access unless the aforementioned exceptional circumstances require it. However, please be aware that nothing said in personal conversations is truly private. To discuss completely private matters with others, you are advised to use another form of communication.

On a server (i.e. “room") of the Game, messages sent via the messaging console are not logged or recorded, nor are they viewable to anyone outside of the room.

Exceptional Circumstances

Exceptional circumstances, which may involve forum moderators, forum administrators, or server administrators accessing the personal conversations of Registered Users include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Reported content.
  • Requests from law enforcement agencies with the appropriate warrants.
  • Any action needed to be taken to ensure the legality and security of the forum (e.g. if fraudulent activity is suspected).

Do Not Track

Do Not Track (or DNT) is a browser preference, which will tell visited websites not to collect certain information. Although we would like to, presently we are unable to guarantee that the Site and Game will honor DNT signals, due to the changing state of technology and indecision within the industry concerning the meaning of DNT signals. However, we do support transparency and choice regarding the information collected from our Visitors and Registered Users, which is why we disclose our use of cookies and provide links to opt out of certain collection practices.

Consent

By using the Site or Game, you hereby consent to our privacy policy and agree to its terms.

Update

This privacy policy was last updated on Friday, March 25th, 2016, which is the effective date for all changes. Your continued use of the Site or Game signifies your acceptance of the revised terms of this privacy policy.

This privacy policy is subject to change at any time without notice. You are therefore encouraged to review this policy frequently, checking for an updated revision date. If we make significant changes to our privacy policy, we may also notify Visitors and Registered Users by other means, such as by posting a notice in the Game or on the Site.
