Privacy Policy

We want to keep this is simple as possible. Sadly the Internet is not a simple place, as such we must have a policy in place. Since this area is constantly evolving this policy may be updated as and when is necessary. You shall be informed of such changes and your continued use of our websites shall be deemed as your acceptance of this policy.
PlanetVampire's forum exists to allow the community to come together, discuss and share news about upcoming games, mods, and many other things. In order to participate on this forum and communicate with other people, you must sign up for an account. We therefore must collect your email address and you must choose a username to uniquely identify yourself. You do NOT have to use your real name if you do not wish to do so.
Because this forum includes user-generated content that may not be appropriate for minors you MUST ensure you are of appropriate age. By using this forum you represent and warrant that you are of appropriate age. If you are under 13, do NOT use this forum!
However much information about yourself you wish to share to the public (other than your username) is your choice- your email address and IP addresses you use to connect to our websites will not be disclosed (unless you choose to) except where absolutely necessary. Necessary disclosure includes law enforcement.

Use of data other than for your use of the forum:
From time to time we monitor activity on this forum (though not necessarily the content of posted messages) for the security and safety of our users, as well as to ensure the security and stability of our websites. Where someone/something begins causing a nuisance or disturbance- be it toward a member, the community in general and/or the servers on which our websites reside, we may use personal identifying information such as your IP address(es) or email address(es) to track and block such activity. This information will not be disclosed to third parties except where absolutely necessary. Necessary disclosure includes law enforcement.
We do not run advertisements on any of our websites and to keep things simple: we do not make any money from our websites. We exist simply in order to be a safe place for like-minded people with shared interests. As such your personal information will never be sold to anyone else in any way. If a member of this forum appears to cause you a nuisance or threaten you in any way, please consult an Administrator as soon as possible via PM. We may not otherwise notice such conduct otherwise!

User data deletion requests:
Under the GDPR we have to remove people's personal information on request if the subject is a European Citizen. However any non-identifying information (e.g. forum posts) would NOT be removed. The only exception is if any posts contain your username, email address, or IP address, or postal address. In which case we would run a find-and-replace to anonymise this information but the rest of said posts would remain intact. This would be to preserve the structure of any stories that would be very difficult to understand/follow without the original information (under the GDPR this information is "still required" and "in the public interest to retain" but could no longer be used to personally identify you anyway).
We would then rename your account to "GDPR_Deleted" and then delete your account. That would take away IP addresses and email addresses (or anything else like pictures) you have on your profile. A find-and-replace would then be run through the database to ensure that your username no longer is associated with any of your posts (they would have the name "GDPR_Deleted"). Note that messages you have sent to other members will remain in their inboxes until they delete them (although would appear to be from "GDPR_Deleted" with no option to reply since there would be no account/email address to reply to), since this information is still "required" in the sense that you wouldn't expect a random bailiff to force down your door, demand your phone at gunpoint and then delete text messages you have already received because the sender has demanded to be deleted!
Note that if anyone requests a GDPR deletion and has committed abuse on this forum, the following will happen: IP addresses, usernames and emails associated with said person would be stored offline with a note for us to check against should said subject attempt to create a new account later. This would be to prevent abuse of the GDPR provisions (think about it: if you commit a crime, you cannot request it be removed from your criminal record!). The GDPR does allow for such exemptions like this and justification would be given for this to said subject. We believe this offers the best compromise and going forward this is how we will handle such requests.
