Privacy Policy

Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used. To make this notice easy to find, we make it available in our footer and at every point where personally identifiable information may be requested.

Log files are maintained and analyzed of all requests for files on this website's web servers. Log files do not capture personal information but do capture the user's IP address, which is automatically recognized by our web servers.

Our Commitment to Children's Privacy
Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. For that reason, we never collect or maintain information at our website from those we actually know are under 13, and no part of our website is structured to attract anyone under 13.


Right to be Forgotten

We do permit the right to be forgotten by allowing you to request account deletion in the Account Settings of your profile. We do not, by default, anonymize your account. We will anonymize and honor deleting all content but only if it's directly requested in our staff's eyes only forum. One stipulation for this is that if you do request account deletion you will no longer be permitted to be a member on the Initiative and banned from the site.


Right to Data Portability

You can request we provide you with your personal data which we will provide a file that will include known IP addresses, browsers, email address and other basic profile information. This file will not contain any passwords or authentication tokens or keys. If you request this after account deletion we will be unable to provide it (no matter if we kept your content or not) as your account will no longer be associated it and so all private data, other than your account name (if anonymization wasn't requested) will have been deleted.
