Regardless of who you are, what you do and where you are in the world, your privacy is important, and even though this is a small site from a not-so-significant individual who understands only the basics about security, I want to make sure you know I am doing everything I can to keep your private information data exactly that: Private.
From hereonin, I will refer to myself as we to make sure that this policy is still applicable if I do end up bringing other people on board.
Sites under this brand
Lorraine “Lothari” Wilson operates a single website for the Games and Stories blog: gamesandstories.home.blog
This site address may change with growth and time, and more sites may be added to the ‘brand’. We endeavour to keep this information as up-to-date as we possibly can moving forward.
- We do not ask for personal information unless we deem it completely necessary.
- We do not share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our brand and product and protect our own rights.
- We do not store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of our site (and we currently do not have any servers)
Like most website operators, Games and Stories, through WordPress, may collect non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as browser-type, language preference, referring site and the date and time of visitor requests. Our purpose in collecting non-personally-identifying information is to better understand how Games and Stories’ visitors use its website. Games and Stories will never release non-personally-identifying information, even in aggregate.
Gathering of Personally-identifying information
If you wish to follow Games and Stories via email, you will be asked to provide an email address that blog updates will be sent to. While you are subscribed to the site in this way, this email address will be stored by WordPress, but not shared with Games and Stories or any of its contributors.
If you wish to follow Games and Stories via a wordpress.org account, WordPress may use personally-identifying information in order to ensure you are properly updated about updates to the Games and Stories site.
For the purposes of polls and other tools aimed at further informing website content, Games and Stories may ask for potentially personally-identifying information. To the best of our ability, this information will be collected anonymously so that it cannot be tracked back to individual users, and you may be asked to provide an email address should the need arise to ensure only one response per person per gathering of information. For the purposes of website content, this information may be shared in aggregate to inform website content, but we endeavour never to share individual responses where not absolutely necessary.
If you wish to comment on any Games and Stories post or page, your name and/or email address may be stored by WordPress and will be shown on the significant post or page. Games and Stories and its contributors endeavour not to share this information outside the context of the significant post or page, in that they may reference name or email address in responses to yours and other comments, but can take no responsibility for what other users not affiliated with Games and Stories do with that information.
Protection of Personally-Identifying Information
Games and Stories contributors will only disclose personally-identifying information to other contributors if it is deemed absolutely necessary, and all contributors have agreed not to disclose such information to anyone outside of the brand unless required to do so by law. Some of these contributors may be located outside of your home country. By using Games and Stories and WordPress.org, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.
Games and Stories and its contributors will never rent or sell potentially personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to contributors to this site, Games and Stories contributors will only ever disclose potentially personally-identifying information if required to do so by law, if you give permission to have your information shared or when Games and Stories believes in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect the property and rights of the brand, its contributors or the public at large.
If you send us a request (for example via email or another feedback mechanism), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request as necessary. We endeavour to protect against unauthorised access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
