We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others rights, property, or safety. However, non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.

Third party links

We therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites. Nonetheless, we seek to protect the integrity of our site and welcome any feedback about these sites.

IP Addresses

IP addresses allow computers and servers to recognize and communicate with one another. We collect IP address information so that we can properly administer our system and gather aggregate information about how our site is being used, including the pages visitors are viewing. To maintain your anonymity, we do not associate IP addresses with records containing personal information.

How we protect your personal information

1g. All data that you enter on this site is encrypted with secure server software (SSL). I take the protection of my members information very serious. And this will NEVER be sold, transferred, duplicated, offered to third parties, abused or taken advantage of.

 

 

Access to Information

1h. In accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998 (UK) you have the right to access any information that we hold relating to you. I may reserve the right to charge for this information if I deem it is being abused.

Q: Which Act allows me to get my personal information? And can they charge me?  (UK only)

The Data Protection Act 1998 gives you the right to apply for a copy of your personal information. You will need to put your request in writing, by letter or email, and send it to the person or organisation you believe holds this information. Make sure to put your name and address and keep a copy. It is a good idea to make clear you are asking for the information under the Data Protection Act 1998.
Yes, under the Data Protection Act they can ask for a fee of up to £10.00 for each request made.
For more information on your rights, take a look at the advice and tips on how to manage your personal information.

 

 

2h. All users of our site may make any changes to their information at anytime by logging into the Forum (http://spaceandscience.co.uk/forum/), selecting ‘Profile’ and reviewing the ‘Modify Profile’ section in the left sidebar.

3h. If you wish to remove your profile then you can PM the administrator and I will remove all data that is pertaining to you. This does NOT include posts made by yourself unless I feel its appropriate to remove the posts. Removing the posts of a member would require a lot of work so I will only do this if the forum is abused by said user.

 

Chatroom

1i. The chatroom is monitored by an AI bot I created called 'Dangerbot' and also now his brother 'Titan'. He logs only your username and hostmark.

This is for the sole purpose of recognising and kicking/banning individuals. The bot also logs all chat in the channel which is deleted after 1 month at my discretion.

The bot will defend the channel if you do any of the following:

 

  • Flood the channel with lots of text

  • Swear

  • Talk to much in CAPS

 

The bot is there to protect my members.

2i. The use of the bots other functions is a service as is. I am not responsible for the responses the bot gives when you request a service, the responsibility is solely with the respective author of the script or the company providing the information. Abuse of the bots services will most likely see you kicked from the channel from said bot.

Changes to our Privacy Policy

1K. If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes on this page, and/or update the Privacy Policy modification date below.

2K. This policy was last modified on 08 May 2011
