Effective June 21, 2015
To us, privacy is extremely important. We will never give your name or personal information to third parties.
We want to communicate with you only if you want to hear from us. We give you complete control over how we contact you. In order to complete registration, you are required to verify your email address with an activation link sent to you in the registration verification email. Anytime you change your email, you will also be required to enter your password and then verify the new email address with an activation link sent to the new email address. If the activation link is not followed, the new email address will not take effect. Your email address is never shown publicly to any user of our site.
Technology / Security
We may obtain IP addresses from users. We will use this information to monitor and prevent fraud, and diagnose problems.
We use a variety of security measures, including encryption and authentication tools, to maintain the confidentiality of your personal information. Your personal information is stored behind firewalls and is only accessible by a limited number of people who are required to keep the information confidential. Your password is double-encrypted with a non-reversible method called hashing before it is transmitted to our servers. Once on our servers, it is again encrypted one more time. Your password is never sent across the internet in an unencrypted state nor is it ever stored in cookies in any way, shape, or form.
Regardless of these efforts by us, no data transmission over the public Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.
Any personal information or content that you voluntarily disclose in public areas becomes publicly available and can be collected and used by other users. You should exercise caution before disclosing your personal information via these public venues.
When linking your profile to Kickstarter, you must enter your Kickstarter profile URL. The only information we gather from this URL is your publicly accessible profile information. This includes but is not limited to your display name, your location, join date, biography, website list, profile picture, and backed projects list. If you change any of your Kickstarter profile information or back additional projects, we will attempt to update our records the next time you login or visit your own profile.
We will only disclose your personally identifiable information as required by law and only when requested with a warrant
