At our website, we take your privacy seriously and are committed to protecting your personal information. We understand the importance of transparency and want to explain in detail how we collect and use information from our website visitors.
We believe that collecting personally-identifying information should be limited, and is not necessary for you to have a positive experience on our website. However, we do, and must collect a bare minimum amount of personally-identifying information required for the proper functioning of the website itself. This information is strictly limited to the following: the collection of IP addresses for any votes made on the website (to prevent "vote bombing"), and an email address for registered accounts (to facilitate account registration and password retrieval).
It is important to note that for "registered accounts" on our website, we drop the requirement to store an IP address altogether. To this end, your account becomes even more private and anonymous. This feature of our software combined with our allowance (and recommendation) to utilize a privacy focused email service such as hushmail.com or similar to register an email account for use here provides an exceptionally high level of anonymity and privacy for you. Any additional information that you may voluntarily provide beyond that is strictly up to you. We do not collect or store any other sensitive personal information, such as credit card details or social security numbers.
We do not share your personally-identifying information with third parties, except where required by law. We only disclose potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to our employees and contractors who have agreed not to disclose it to others.
We take reasonable steps to ensure the security of your personal information, including using SSL encryption and secure servers to protect your information during transmission and storage. However, please be aware that no website can guarantee absolute security. You use our website at your own risk, and we cannot accept any liability for unauthorized access to or use of your personal information.
If you have any questions or concerns about our collection or use of your personal information, please do not hesitate to contact us. We are committed to being transparent and responsive to our users’ privacy needs.
We do not collect or store any user data for the purpose of delivering targeted advertisements.
