Types of Information We Receive From You & How We Get It
Only registered users have the permission to add content to the website. The user's contributions and contribution history may be stored permanently in the website's database. The user's contribution history may be visible to other users. The user's contribution history includes the following information: the ID of the user and the timestamp of the contribution.
Account Information & Registration
You are not required to create an account to read some content on the website. Only a username and password is required to create an account.
Your username will be publicly visible, so please be careful about using your real name as your username. Your password is only used to verify that the account is yours. Your IP address is also automatically submitted to us, and we record it temporarily to help prevent abuse. No other personal information is required: no name, no email address, no date of birth, no credit card information.
To gain a better understanding of the demographics of our users, to localize our services and to learn how we can improve our services, we may ask you for more demographic information, such as gender or age, about yourself. We will tell you if such information is intended to be public or private, so that you can make an informed decision about whether you want to provide us with that information. Providing such information is always completely optional.
We automatically receive the IP address of the device (or your proxy server) you are using to access the Internet, which could be used to infer your geographical location. We keep IP addresses confidential, except as provided in this Policy.

To Protect You, Ourselves & Others
We hope that this never comes up, but we may disclose your Personal Information if we believe that it's reasonably necessary to prevent imminent and serious bodily harm or death to a person, or to protect our organization, users, or the public. We may also disclose your Personal Information if we reasonably believe it necessary to detect, prevent, or otherwise assess and address potential spam, malware, fraud, abuse, unlawful activity, and security or technical concerns.
Because You Made It Public
Any information you post publicly is just that – public. Please think carefully about your desired level of anonymity before you disclose Personal Information.
