Non-personally identifiable information: When you use the Service, we may collect information that will not be able to specifically identify you such as your birthday, and gender. In addition, when you use the Service, we may collect information and aggregate information indicating, among other things, which pages of the Service you visit, the order in which you visit them and which hyperlinks you "click." Collecting such information involves logging your IP address (i.e., the unique number assigned to your computer from your Internet Service Provider ("ISP")) and maybe used to determine your ISP and geographic location of your point of connectivity. Furthermore, in order to sign up for any account, you also are required to provide us with an e-mail address, password and a Forum username. You must also provide your Minecraft username in order to be white-listed. You may also provide non-personally identifiable information to us while participating in the forum and otherwise using the Service which may be retained in our databases.
We may group this information into aggregate visitor data in order to describe the use of the Site to our existing or potential sponsors, advertisers or other third parties, or in response to a government request. We may also group demographic and preferences information and responses to surveys that we collect from visitors into aggregate data for the same purposes. However, please be assured that this aggregate data will in no way personally identify you or any other visitors to the Site.
We do no control the acts of the individuals who use the Service. All users should be aware that, when they disclose personally identifiable or other information in a forum, server, social media or other forms of communication while using the Service, the information is being made publicly available and may be collected and used by other users. When you disclose such information, you do so at your own risk. We are not responsible for information that you choose to communicate to other users on the Service, or for the actions of other users. We reserve the right (but shall have no obligation) to monitor your use of the forum, server, social media or other forms of communication. In addition, we reserve the right to use IP addresses and other tracking technologies to identify a visitor only when we feel it is necessary to enforce compliance with the Site's policies, to protect the Site, our community and others.
