Privacy Policy

Folks - look, it's really simple and we can sum this up for you in a way that's easily digestible:

We May Collect Some Information

We may ask you for some personal info when you use this site. Mostly in the context of registering for a user account and posting content. We'll ask for things like the following:

  • Name
  • Email Address
  • Location
  • Birthday
  • Website you run or come from
  • "About Me" type blurbs
  • Anything you write a post about (or reply to an existing post)

All in all, this info is pretty benign and we don't ask for sensitive stuff like SSN#, mother's maiden name, etc.

We DO NOT SHARE Information

The info we collect we use for this website, and this website only. We DO NOT share this information with 3rd parties, SPAM agencies, or other crap-tards out there who want to fill your inbox with a bunch of garbage.

We May Send You Stuff

We might occasionally send you an email - this is generally in the context of the following situations:

  • A notice that someone replied to a topic you're subscribed to
  • A daily digest of new topics on the forum
  • A response to a request for help
  • A notice that the forum may be undergoing some maintenance or update, etc.

Most of these communications can be managed through your profile settings. Again - we're not interested in filling your inbox with garbage.

You Might See Advertisements

We'd like to fill our website with garbage just as much as we'd like to fill your inbox with garbage. More appropriately, we'd REALLY like to keep this place advertisement-free. However, there may be the occasional ad that makes sense to have, so you might see something from time to time, here or there.

Thanks for taking a moment to read this.
