I. INFORMATION WE COLLECT:
We collect “Non-Personal Information” and “Personal Information.” Non-Personal Information
includes information that cannot be used to personally identify you, such as anonymous usage data, general demographic information we may collect, referring/exit pages and URLs, platform types, preferences you submit and preferences that are generated based on the data you submit and number of clicks through both Google Analytics and Cloudflare. Personal Information
includes your name and email address for the contact form and your IP address, which is converted into a hash-based message authentication code if you choose to save your simulation.
1. Information collected via simulating
. To opt out of being tracked by Google Analytics across all websites visit http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout
Users may choose to customize their simulation and enter personal information such as names of real individuals or the image URLs containing photos of these individuals. Uploading images is not permitted. The BrantSteele simulators do not save this information using cookies. Instead, simulation data is saved in sessions that reset every two hours, when a user closes his or her web browser, or when a user switches between simulators on either the BrantSteele.com or BrantSteele.net server.
2. Information you provide us by saving a simulation
3. Removal of saved simulation data
Saved simulation files are cleared 3 months after the last view or 1 year after the last view if the ‘keep longer’ or ‘keep forever’ option is selected. An automated script runs every 24 hours to clear these, and no exception will be made to manually restore saved simulations if they were deleted by this script. Additionally, the creator of the saved simulation has the ability to delete the saved simulation if he or she can be authenticated. Users may report a saved simulation that contains inappropriate content or violates any user’s privacy. These will be deleted as soon as possible.
4. Information you provide us by using the Contact Form
Users may contact BrantSteele using a contact form created with Google Forms that sends a message over Gmail with a user's name and email address along with the simulator and season and category and message. Once read and addressed (if necessary), these emails will be archived and periodically deleted from the administrator's inbox where they have been sent.
5. Children’s Privacy
The Site and the Service are not directed to anyone under the age of 13. The Site does not knowingly collect or solicit information from anyone under the age of 13. In the event that we learn that we have gathered personal information from saved simulations from anyone under the age of 13 without the consent of a parent or guardian, we will delete that information as soon as possible. If you believe we have collected such information, please Contact BrantSteele
or send an email
II. HOW WE USE AND SHARE INFORMATION:
1. Personal Information:
In general, the Personal Information you provide to us is used to help us communicate with you. For example, we use Personal Information to contact users in response to questions, solicit feedback from users, and to provide technical support. We may share Personal Information with outside parties if we have a good-faith belief that access, use, preservation or disclosure of the information is reasonably necessary to meet any applicable legal process or enforceable governmental request; to enforce applicable Terms of Service, including investigation of potential violations; address fraud, security or technical concerns; or to protect against harm to the rights, property, or safety of our users or the public as required or permitted by law.
2. Non-Personal Information:
In the event we undergo a business transaction such as a merger, acquisition by another company, or sale of all or a portion of our assets, your Personal Information will not be among the assets transferred. If our information practices change at any time in the future, we will post the policy changes to the Site so that you may opt out of the new information practices. We suggest that you check the Site periodically if you are concerned about how your information is used.
III. HOW WE PROTECT INFORMATION:
We implement security measures designed to protect your information from unauthorized access. We do not permit users to register accounts and limit personal data submission to just names and email addresses submitted by the contact form using secure socket layer technology with Google Forms. IP addresses are converted into hash-based message authentication codes for security. Saved simulations are both encrypted and compressed to prevent anyone without permission from accessing them, and any personally identifiable information is removed when they are regularly deleted after periods of inactivity. However, these measures do not guarantee that your information will not be accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed by breach of such firewalls and secure server software. By using our Service, you acknowledge that you understand and agree to assume these risks.
