We are obsessed with privacy. Some might even call us extremists. We call it being ethical. Here's the TL;DR:
We collect the following types of information:
We do not use any third party trackers (eg. Google Analytics), advertising networks, beacons, etc.
Beyond the uses listed above we do not share your private data with third parties, with the exception of rare cases where we may be required to share share what little data we have on you as required by court order, legal proceeding, warrant, law, or other mandatory government request.
As of the date of first posting this document (January 27th, 2020) we have never been forced to disclose any user data under any warrants.
By default we use a cookie to persist your session across page loads. However, if you use the Do Not Track (DNT) setting in your browser, we will not store any cookies unless: 1. You explicitly grant us an exception and opt-in to cookies via one of the submission forms on the site, or 2. You login to your user account with username and password. In the latter case, we need to use a cookie in order to persist your logged-in state.
We generally do not allow blanket deletion of submissions because it has the effect of wrecking any discussions that user has participated in. We have designed the interactive features of the site (for example comments and posts) to be usable pseudonymously without requiring any kind of registration process, and without publicly displaying any Personally Identifying Information.
If you have posted Personally Identifying Information publicly and want it removed, or have another urgent issue, please contact us and we will try to help you out. In such cases, we may require you to verify your identity in some way in order to ensure that your deletion request is actually being made on behalf of the original poster.
We believe you have the right to be forgotten, but you also have the right to never be identified in the first place. Therefore we discourage you from posting any information that could be used to identify you.
Obsessive Facts is not intended for children under 13 years of age. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13. If you are under 13, please do not provide any information on this website. Just leave.
We may update this policy from time to time. In the case of significant changes, we will place a prominent notice on the site. This website is open source, and you are always welcome to view the changes to this policy in our revision history.
Obsessive Facts is a project of Obsessive Network LLC, a Minnesota limited liability company. If you have a privacy question or concern, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
