Privacy Policy

This is Pixelation's Privacy Policy. This document's purpose is to tell you what data of yours we store and why we store it.

Access logs

For unregistered and registered users alike, our web server records access to the pages and files it serves. This includes the resource (page or file) in question, your IP address and a timestamp of the access. This data is stored up to 7 days, and only used for diagnostic purposes (we use it to figure out if people are trying to access pages or files that don't exist).

Cookies

For unregistered and registered users alike, the forum will store your session ID as a cookie. This ID is used by the server to temporarily store some session relevant data, like the search term of your current search.

For registered users that use the "remember login" functionality, an additional cookie is stored to automatically authorize you when you visit the forum.

Your threads, posts, profile, avatar, ...

If you're a registered and active user, we of course also store all the data you willingly submit. Your profile, avatar image, website URL. Your threads and posts, your private messages. This should be a no-brainer, but we want to list it anyway. In case you want to leave us permanently, the next paragraph may be interesting to you.

Requesting deletion of your stored data

If you would like us to remove any of the data we have about you, you can simply contact us with an appropriate request. Please understand that no such request will be fulfilled if you're not a registered user, since any data for users that don't have an account on the forums isn't stored any longer than 7 days (see the section on access logs).

If you are a registered user and would like to have your account deleted and your posts and threads and all other data removed, please send a private message to Crow explaining what data you want to have removed. If, for whatever reason, you don't have access to your account anymore, you can also send an e-mail to webmaster [at] pixelation [dot] org.

Third party services

To ensure a spam free environment, we make use of Google's reCAPTCHA. We use it as part of the registration process, and for the first posts and threads of new users. When using reCAPTCHA, some data will be sent to Google. Your use of reCAPTCHA is subject to Google's Privacy Policy and Terms of Service.
