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.
Changes to Policy
We may change this Policy from time to time - when we do we will make sure you get the chance to review and agree to the new Policy. By agreeing and consenting to this Policy, you agree to be bound by its terms.
Log files are maintained and analysed 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 recognised by our web servers.
How We Use Your Data
Any data that you choose to submit to The Sonic Stadium website or SSMB Forums will be used solely for the purposes of managing your account, assisting with moderation/admin activity (rule infractions, etc) and personalising your use of our websites (including site theme designs). Your personal data will never be used for marketing purposes, nor will be shared with third parties.
We may contact you via email address (or similar) to let you know about news, updates or security announcements related to The Sonic Stadium website or SSMB Forums. New registrants may opt in to this 'broadcast' service. Existing members may need to opt-out, which they can do easily via User Settings.
By reading and accepting this notice you agree to any automatic opt-in that your account is currently signed to, and accept that if you wish to opt-out you may do so yourself via your User Settings.
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.
This website does not store any information that would, on its own, allow us to identify individual users of this service without their permission. Any cookies that may be used by this website are used either solely on a per session basis or to maintain user preferences. Cookies are not shared with any third parties.
Data Retrieval and Account Deletion
Most, if not all, of the data we collect is easily visible on your User Settings page (Sex, Email Address, Post History, etc). But, should you wish to see the data we have collected on your account, you may reach out to the Administration team (these are members with pink usernames; moderators will not have access to this data) privately and we will be happy to comply.
You can also reach out to an Administrator if you wish to have your account and all of its content deleted permanently from SSMB Forums. Note that we will maintain any posts created in order to preserve the discussion, but any identifying information against the posts will be deleted and the posts will become anonymous.
Thanks for reading, and enjoy your time on the SSMB Forums!
