    A very brief overview to notify users this site complies with the new (2018) Data Protection Regulations.

    Firstly we are not a company and we do not share your data with anyone.

    The data is kept on a secure server which can only be accessed from a nominated static IP address.

    What data do we hold?

    Upon registration:

    Email address (to complete registration and verify user is human - not a spam bot)
    Date of Birth (to ensure users are over age 13)

    After registration:

    User IP addresses (To prevent multiple [spam] accounts)
    Number of posts made & post content

    What do we do with your data?

    Nothing other than keep it secure.

    Can I delete my data?

    Yes. Just use the contact us link at the foot of the page and we will aim to delete your personal data within 72 hours.

    Be aware if you also want your account deleted, your posts will remain as an anonymous guest user to maintain coherency for all remaining site users.

    If we delete your personal data, be aware you cannot reset your password & the multiple-user software which monitors IP addresses may block future attempts to re-register.
