This Privacy Policy is provided to inform concerned parties about how the Site handles any collected Personally Identifiable Information (“PII”), how to have your data removed from our Site, how we protect the data that we collect, and information collected via Google Analytics and Google AdSense.

What PII does the Site collect?

PII is collected from users of the Site as they interact with it. PII is collected when a user:

  • registers an account on the Site (your e-mail address, username and hashed password);
  • submits a listing on the Site (information entered via the “Recruit a Crew” form, your IP address, and a hash to identify your browser);
  • submits a Report against another users’ listing on the Site (your email address and the reason for why you reported any given listing);
How does the Site use PII?

PII collected by the Site is used in order to provide our basic functionality. Some examples of what we use your PII for is:

  • personalizing your experience as well as enabling additional features (such as the ability to Rate other members, and reserve your in-game name);
  • assisting the Site by providing insight towards the features we should focus on;
  • allow you to interact and communicate with other users of the Site;

PII is never shared with a third-party service. However, some of your PII is shared with other users of the site for the purpose of which the information was collected. For example: the information collected when you submit your listing.
