Amortentia Dolorosa - Privacy policy

[FAQ | Rules | BBcode | ToS | Privacy Policy]

This website belongs to groundLine Industries.
The owner/administrator can be reached via the Admin Contact Form or by PM to Gellert Grindelwald.

This policy explains in detail how “Amortentia Dolorosa” along with its affiliated companies (hereinafter “we”, “us”, “our”, “Amortentia Dolorosa”, “”) and phpBB (hereinafter “they”, “them”, “their”, “phpBB software”, “”, “phpBB Group”, “phpBB Teams”) use any information collected during any session of usage by you (hereinafter “your information”).

Foremost, and most importantly, be aware that there is NO CONTENT you can create on this site that cannot be accessed by an administrator (with the sole exception of your password), including, but not limited to: posts, avatars, PMs, images, links, and signatures. If anyone at all on the site can see it, we can see it, too. However, we do not use this power frivolously.

((In English: We're not reading everything on the site, all the time; we're usually only looking for specific content that people have complained to us about, either via PMs or the Report Post function. If you see something that seems wrong, let us know, and we'll look into it.))

Your password -- the one thing we CAN NOT SEE -- is ciphered (a one-way hash) so that it is secure. However, it is recommended that you do not reuse the same password across a number of different websites. Your password is the means of accessing your account at “Amortentia Dolorosa”, so please guard it carefully and under no circumstance will anyone affiliated with “Amortentia Dolorosa”, phpBB or another 3rd party, legitimately ask you for your password. Should you forget your password for your account, you can use the “I forgot my password” feature provided by the phpBB software. This process will ask you to submit your user name and your e-mail, then the phpBB software will generate a new password to reclaim your account.

We collect the e-mail addresses of those who post messages to our bulletin board, aggregate information on what pages users access or visit, and information volunteered by the user, such as site registrations. The information we collect is used to improve the content of our Web page and used to customize the content accessible by each individual visitor.

((In English: Basically, what we know about you is what you choose to tell us on registration, the IP address from which you registered, and any information related to your character, like groups, age, and gender. The site uses that information to contact you about any notifications you've subscribed to and to restrict access to forums your character doesn't belong in. Pretty basic stuff, on the whole. Below is the long version.))

Your information is collected via two ways. Firstly, browsing “Amortentia Dolorosa” will cause the phpBB software to create a number of cookies, which are small text files that are downloaded on to your computer’s web browser temporary files. The first two cookies just contain a user identifier (hereinafter “user-id”) and an anonymous session identifier (hereinafter “session-id”), automatically assigned to you by the phpBB software. A third cookie will be created once you have browsed topics within “Amortentia Dolorosa” and is used to store which topics have been read, thereby improving your user experience.

The second way in which we collect your information is by what you submit to us. This can be, and is not limited to: posting as an anonymous user (hereinafter “anonymous posts”), registering on “Amortentia Dolorosa” (hereinafter “your account”) and posts submitted by you after registration and whilst logged in (hereinafter “your posts”).

Your account will at a bare minimum contain a uniquely identifiable name (hereinafter “your user name”), a personal password used for logging into your account (hereinafter “your password”) and a personal, valid e-mail address (hereinafter “your e-mail”). Your information for your account at “Amortentia Dolorosa” is protected by data-protection laws applicable in the country that hosts us. Any information beyond your user name, your password, and your e-mail address required by “Amortentia Dolorosa” during the registration process is either mandatory or optional, at the discretion of our Admins. In all cases, you have the option of what information in your account is publicly displayed.

As part of the California Online Privacy Protection Act, all users of our site may make any changes to their information at any time by logging into the site and going to the 'User Control Panel' page.

Furthermore, within your account, you have the option to opt-in or opt-out of automatically generated e-mails from the phpBB software. If you do not want to receive automated e-mails (PM notification, subscribed thread updates, etc.) from us in the future, please let us know by changing the email preferences in your profile and unsubscribing from any threads that are generating the messages you do not want.

Upon request we provide site visitors with access to all information, including proprietary information, that we maintain about them.
* Users can access this information by or clicking the profile link at the top of the page.
* Users can have this information corrected by changing it in their profile.

From time to time, we may use user information for new, unanticipated uses not previously disclosed in our privacy notice. These uses will NEVER be advertisements of any kind, nor will we disclose your information to any third party. If our information practices change at some time in the future we will post the policy changes to our Web site to notify you of these changes and we will use for these new purposes only data collected from the time of the policy change forward. If you are concerned about how your information is used, you should check back at our Web site periodically.
