Patreon features in this website

In order to enable you to use this website with my Patreon services, we save certain functionally important Patreon information about you in this website if you log in with Patreon.

These include your Patreon user id, Patreon username, your first and last names and your vanity name. Additionally, the id of the campaign you joined at Patreon and that campaign’s Patreon URL are also saved.

If you request that your data be deleted from this website, this data will also be deleted and Patreon functionality will not work. You would need to register on this website and log in to this website with Patreon again in order to re-populate this data and have Patreon functionality working again. Your Patreon information will not be shared with any third parties besides Patreon itself by me.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Who we share your data with

None of your information is shared with third parties besides what is described above without your explicit consent. Your account registration information (for the game, the wiki, the forums, etc) and game information is stored on external servers only accessible by the Never Ending Realmss Team.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

Contact form data is retained indefinitely unless it is spam, which will be removed immediately.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

How I protect your data

This site is protected through various means to protect all data, including your personal data. This includes, but is not limited to security programs that run directly on the server, as well as security programs that run in this site.

Information that gets sent to us in the email is protected by several security programs we use.
