The Starting Tavern collects personal information in the following ways:
1. Account Sign Up
When a new account is created, we ask the user to supply a firstname, password, and e-mail address. The email is provided by the user and is the primary means of identifying the user throughout the site. The password is considered sensitive personal information and is kept securely and as it is encrypted it can never be shared with third parties. The e-mail address is considered sensitive personal information and is used as detailed below.
2. Campaign Invitations
When a user sends invitations to join a campaign, we ask for the e-mail address of the invitee. This e-mail address is never shared with third parties.
3. Automated Tracking
The Starting Tavern automatically receives and records certain "traffic data" on our server's logs from your browser including, but not limited to, your ip address, operating system, The Starting Tavern cookie information, and the page you requested.
The Starting Tavern uses any information voluntarily given by our users to enhance their experience in our sites, whether to provide interactive or personalized elements on the sites or to better prepare future content based on the interests of our users.
As stated above, we use information that users voluntarily provide in order to send out electronic newsletters and to enable users to participate in campaigns and game content generation. The Starting Tavern never shares e-mail addresses with any third parties, including advertisers, sponsors or partners.
We use return email addresses to answer the email we receive. Such addresses are not used for any other purpose and are not shared with outside parties.
We use "traffic data" to determine which areas of our sites users like and don't like based on traffic to those areas. We do not track what individual users read, but rather how well each page performs overall. This helps us continue to build a better service for you. We track search terms entered in Search function as one of many measures of what interests our users, but we don't track which terms a particular user enters.
Advertisements shown to you may be related to textual information, such as metadata and notes, associated with the photo you are seeing, or the search term you entered.
Finally, we never use or share the personally identifiable information provided to us online in ways unrelated to the ones described above without also providing you an opportunity to opt-out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.
To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. We periodically review our security procedures, and only authorized individuals have access to the information provided by our users.
Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. Consistent with the Federal Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA), we will never knowingly request personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 13, and no part of our website is structured to attract anyone under 13.
The Starting Tavern may disclose your personal information in order to comply with applicable law or valid legal process or to protect the personal safety of our users or the public.
