Who we are
Osgrid.online is part of OSgrid Inc. : Our main website address is: https://www.osgrid.org and our news page is located here on https://www.osgrid.online. Details with regards to our board and administration can be found in the about section or the OSgrid wiki.
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection. We do not care for these details, but it is how things work. We do not feel responsible in any way for your reasons to be here, or to subscribe. You know what that means eh subscribing ? We send you mails. Sometimes at unholy times. Maybe multiple times a day or week. We’ll also have your email address. And we’ll use it. If you feel uncomfortable with this, please leave. Yes, tssk. Go away. This site is for people that like to be kept up to date about OSgrid. You’re obviously not one of them, it’s fine. Nothing to see here for you. Just move along. Don’t forget to clean your browser history when you’re gone.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website. Your profile pictures are public. Just saying. It’s your privacy.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year, unless you eat them.
If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser. Our cookie, so we get very disappointed if you eat this one.
When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed. We don’t want spoiled rotten cookies to stay behind.
If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. As for privacy, this cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day and dissolves. Don’t eat this cookie, it’s not very tasty.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
Who we share your data with
If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email, apparently. Handy if you want to check if your simulator IP in regions.ini is still correct. [ editor note : test this, could be just another blatant lie in this template. Indefinite cookies…. ]
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue. That is IF we would let you comment. But we don’t. Spam, Porn, Karens, we totally don’t need your crap. You can use social media for that. This site is to provide you with info. Not to discuss your opinions or spam your events.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information. Others can see your profile under “members” if you subscribe. If you don’t like that, don’t subscribe. Or step over your darkest fears and see our spam crawl into your inbox. We might never let you unsubscribe and make your inbox a pit of indefinite OSgrid news spam. Exciting innit ?
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments (we did store all historical data), you cannot request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. Well you could request it, but it really is too much fucking hassle for the crap you posted 6 years ago. Deleting it is a lot easier. So you can request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. Ain’t that nice This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes. (trust us, we don’t. We will wipe it from existence and forget about you. Life goes on).
Where your data is sent
Visitor comments / logins / people we deem suspicious may be checked through an automated spam detection service. Automated systems protect our and your data. Misuse / misbehavior can result in a ban across all OSgrid Inc. & related services. If court ordered we will not hesitate to share your details with law enforcement, the FBI, CIA, NSA, or any governments. And really, reading privacy policies. You know, if you want to talk, there’s always someone around to listen…. If you’ve read all of this we hope you’ve smiled. Don’t take life so serious, come login to the grid and have some fun.
