Protect your privates
Plain language version
In a nutshell
In a nutshell, we are good guys when it comes to privacy. It’s really important to us that your privacy is protected and honored while browsing here.
We respect your privacy.
At our website, we don’t gather any personal information about you unless you choose to sign up for our newsletter. In that case, we will only collect your email address, and if you opt to provide it, your name to personalise your emails. Please be assured that we will not sell, share, or in any way disclose the details you submit to our email list.
However, some of our media partners may collect data about you while you are here. You can read more about that below. There’s also a list of partners at the bottom of the page with links that allow you to have better control over your online privacy.
Data we collect
We may collect some information about your browsing on our site. e.g. we may keep a statistics about how many times a page was visited but we never tie that information back to you.
We never collect any personal or identifiable information about you whatsoever unless you sign up for the email list. As mentioned earlier, we will only use that information for the purposes of sending you appropriately related correspondence, such as newsletters, updates, and promotional offers.
To use our comments system, you need to log in using either an email or a third-party service such as Google login. This is done to prevent spammers from accessing the system. Your email address is not stored, and instead, the comments system generates a unique and random identification number for you. This identification number serves as your account identifier, and we do not have access to your email address through the comments system.
To make this site work properly, we sometimes place small data files called cookies on your device. Most big websites do this too.
What are cookies?
A cookie is a small text file that a website saves on your computer or mobile device when you visit the site. It enables the website to remember your actions and preferences (such as login, language, font size and other display preferences) over a period of time, so you don’t have to keep re-entering them whenever you come back to the site or browse from one page to another.
If you choose to use our comments system, a small cookie will be stored on your device to help the system remember your identity. This means that you won’t have to log in to the comments system every time you want to leave a comment.
How to control cookies
You can control and/or delete cookies as you wish – for details, see aboutcookies.org. You can delete all cookies that are already on your computer and you can set most browsers to prevent them from being placed. If you do this, however, you may have to manually adjust some preferences every time you visit a site and some services and functionalities may not work.
Third Party Privacy Policies
Here are links to the third party privacy policies we spoke about earlier. Check them out and see if you’re cool with them. We use them, so if you are on our site, you are using them too.
We utilise a browser functionality known as local storage to retain certain information, such as your preferred theme (dark mode or light mode) and the filters you’ve selected for the Wiki index page. This data is stored solely on your device and is not transmitted to our servers.
