How We Collect DataWe collect data about your visit and use of our sites and services in industry-standard ways. Normal operational data is collected in site access logs, and your session data for parts of our sites where you log in (e.g. the forum) will be collected and stored in the relevant databases.
What Data We CollectAs part of your visit, we will collect your IP address, user agent, and any referrers sent by your browser. We also log the nature of your visit and which parts of the sites and/or services you have accessed.
In addition, for account-relative actions (that require you to set up an account and log in, e.g. the forum), we collect personal information like your name, a password and e-mail address. Only those items of personal information necessary to operate the accounts or provide services will be required. Any other volunteered information is at your own discretion.
We do not collect telemetry on your browser use or extension use.
Occasionally, we may collect data on specific update requests over a short period of time to measure the approximate size of our user base.
Data ProtectionWe protect your data by:
Data RetentionIn principle we store data only for as long as is reasonably necessary/commonly practiced to operate our sites and services.
Site access logs are cycled regularly, at which point particuarly old entries will be discarded. This retention never exceeds 1 year.
Forum accounts are pruned occasionally to prevent unnecessary storage of personal information in our database (based on last-logged-in data).
Data disclosure to third partiesData about your visits is not transmitted to any third parties. Any backup and inspection of such data will be restricted to transfer over encrypted connections to prevent eavesdropping.
In principle, we never disclose visitor data to third parties, including our partners. An exception to this non-disclosure principle is if your visit or behavior is either suspect of abuse or criminal activity (i.e.: if you perform misconduct, we may report you to the relevant authorities), or if such disclosure is mandated by a court order that is valid in the country where either the domain owner or the hosting server resides (i.e.: we will not obstruct justice, but will not volunteer this information unless legally required to do so).
We may also disclose this information in order to establish, exercise or defend our legal rights (including providing information to third parties to prevent fraud).
User Trust and Disclaimer
By using our sites and services, you indicate, as a user, that you trust our
integrity and handling of your data. If you cannot, for any reason,
place this kind of trust in us, then you should refrain from using our sites and services.
