Data Protection and Privacy
« on: May 18, 2018, 10:49:37 pm »
As you might be aware, the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force on May 25.

Whilst we are not a company or a business, we do store some personal data. We can assure you that we look after your data securely.

Data we might have on record includes (to the best of our knowledge):

1) IP address
2) Personal email address
3) Username
4) Birthday - only if you edited your profile to enter this
5) Social media account details - only if you edited your profile to enter this

With the help of our forum service provider, a privacy policy is now available on our website, which can be found here:

It is extensive and covers all possible ground - the vast majority of it refers to how the service might use your data rather than CacheWalker itself. Please read it carefully to understand how the forum uses and protects any information you provide, either upon registration and/or as subsequent profile edits.

If you do not agree with this policy, you are, of course, welcome to delete your account (at any point in time). You have the right to be forgotten. Upon deletion, all traces of your IP address and other profile information will be removed and your username will also disappear on any posts you have made on the forum.

If you are still a forum member on May 25, you confirm that you agree with and accept the new privacy policy.
