Information We Do and Do Not Collect
Any information about users, in regards to PII (personally-identifiable information, such as real names) that is made public on any part of this website is done so by the sole discretion of the user(s) in question. We will never request any real-life information such as legal names, dates of birth, age, or any other demographic information that could also be considered PII.
Information That Is Retained Automatically
This website utilizes a username/password system across the site, and users can have multiple accounts. Usernames and passwords have to be retained on this website in order for it to work effectively. While usernames can be made public at account owners' discretion, passwords are not made public by any administration team member(s).
As stated previously, no part of this website is utilized for handing over any information to any third-party entity. We will never disclose any information about users to any third parties.
Law Enforcement, Legal Requests, and Duties
Where permitted or required by local laws, including those related to data protection, the Project Thea Group may disclose or provide access to any of your account information pursuant to a legal request, such as a court order, search warrant, or subpoena, or in compliance with applicable laws, if we believe that we are required by the law, with or without notice to you or consent.
Retention and Security of your Information
Although user passwords are stored on a separate database server that is managed by the Project Thea Group, we cannot give out user passwords if requested by the users themselves or any other entity, due to how they are stored; passwords are hashed using an industry-standard security cipher, and only the hash is stored in association with the respective user account. Additionally, an extra layer of hashing, called a salt, is used to further protect user passwords. Because of this, passwords cannot be reverse-hashed; users who have forgotten their passwords will need to use any appropriate password reset links provided. Furthermore, any requests by anyone claiming to be a member of staff or site administration will never request users for their passwords.
