• Privacy Policy

    We respect your privacy. Any information you choose to share with us privately through your registration or when contacting an administrator, will be held in the strictest of confidence. Most of the site content (including many posts in the forums, user profiles, blogs, etc.) are open to page visitors, including search engines. Members shouldn't share personal information in their profiles, posts, blogs which they don't want published on the internet. We have no control over search engine results when such information is submitted to the site by our members, with some exceptions. You have control over your Profile policy and can apply individual privacy settings to your Contact Info, Profile Picture, Visitor Messages, Albums, etc. to be viewed by either everyone, registered members of the forums, contacts, or friends only. These settings can be found by clicking on your name (located at the top of the page) and then under Settings --> Profile Policy. Viewing of your Blogs can be restricted to contacts and blog moderators only. These options are available in the blog editor (the window that pops up when you create a new blog).

    Most of the information on the DragonShadowClan website is kept in a database which contains posts, registration info, survey/poll results, logged IPs, etc. All this information contained within the database belongs to the administrators of DragonShadowClan and is accessible by site administration whenever it is required.

    The administrators at DragonShadowClan may collect and log IP addresses, browser information, cookie information, user actions performed on our website and other information to provide a better service and improve the value of the materials available on our website. These web logs are not sold nor shared with third parties unless requested by authorities (i.e. police investigators, court orders). If this information is requested of us we will endeavor to provide only that which pertains directly to the issue or offender. Additionally, if another user contacts us with regards to complaints of harassment on our forums (i.e. stalking, abuse) we may assist the complainer by confirming this information with our records.

    Aggregate demographic information may be shared with our business partners, including advertisers. This data is not linked to any personally-identifiable information.

    The site and forums at DragonShadowClan contains links to, and graphics from, third-party websites and/or content providers. This Policy does not extend to those parties, nor is DragonShadowClan responsible for the content linked to or provided.

    We commit to keeping our site and forums safe from spammers, hackers, or other hostile agents by performing regular security maintenance, updating to the latest version of vBulletin (our CMS software) when made available, and by personally monitoring all registrants. Ultimately, you as the user are responsible for protecting your own security through use of common sense and appropriate online security protection programs (i.e. antivirus software, malware protection, etc.). See this Article for more information on protecting your online security.

    While we don't consider ourselves to be an "adult" oriented forum, most of our membership will consist of "mature" members which in turn suggests that there will be some mature conversation going on. Due to the nature of our community - in particular, the gaming aspect - we may appeal to a younger audience. To maintain a balance of open communication and frank discussion, membership to DragonShadowClan is restricted to members over the age of 13. Further, some forums will be restricted to members 18 years and older.

    If at any time you feel that another member has violated your privacy or that of another member, please contact one of the administrators and we will investigate the situation.
