# Privacy Policy

In this policy, we lay out: what data we collect and why; how your data is handled; and your rights to your data. We promise we never sell your data: never have, never will.

This policy applies to the blay09.net website built and maintained by BlayTheNinth.

# What we collect and why

Our guiding principle is to collect only what we need. Here's what that means in practice:

# Website interactions

We collect information on website interactions using Google Analytics. We use this data to prioritize updates to the content in this wiki and measure the general interest in it.

This information includes:

  • the wiki page (on blay09.net) that you're visiting, including the amount of time spent on each page
  • the referrer that linked to this website (e.g. if you clicked on the wiki link on CurseForge, this would be curseforge.com)
  • the browser and operating system you're using
  • the screen resolution and versions of certain browser features (e.g. Flash, JavaScript)
  • the network location and IP address (however, IP addresses are anonymized in memory (opens new window) before they are stored)

To find out more about what data is collected by Google Analytics, how it is used, and how to opt out, please refer to Google's Privacy Policy (opens new window).

# Cookies and Do Not Track

Third party vendors, including Google, use cookies to collect analytics and serve ads based on a user's prior visits to your website or other websites.

Google's use of advertising cookies enables it and its partners to serve ads to users based on their visit to this site and/or other sites on the Internet.

Users may opt out of personalized advertising by visiting Ads Settings (opens new window).

A cookie is a piece of text stored by your browser to help it remember your login information, site preferences, and more. You can adjust cookie retention settings in your own browser. To learn more about cookies, including how to view which cookies have been set and how to manage and delete them, please visit: www.allaboutcookies.org (opens new window).

At this time, our website does not respond to Do Not Track beacons sent by browser plugins.

# Information we do not collect

This site acts only as an informational source and therefore does not collect any personal information apart from website interactions data through Google Analytics / Google Adsense (see above).

Contributions to these documentation sites submitted via gitlab.com (opens new window) happen solely on GitLab's site and therefore fall under GitLab's privacy policy (opens new window). Note that all "Edit this page" links on pages will refer you to the wiki's repository on gitlab.com (opens new window).

We also don’t collect any characteristics of protected classifications including age, race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, or physical and mental abilities or disabilities.

We also do not collect any biometric data.

# When we access or share your information

Our default practice is to not access your information.

We do use some third-party services to analyze website traffic and display ads on the website, namely these are:

# Your rights with respect to your information

We apply the same data rights to all customers, regardless of their location. Currently some of the most privacy-forward regulations in place are the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) and California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) in the US. We recognize all of the rights granted in these regulations, except as limited by applicable law. These rights include:

  • Right to Know. You have the right to know what personal information is collected, used, shared or sold. We outline both the categories and specific bits of data we collect, as well as how they are used, in this privacy policy.
  • Right of Access. This includes your right to access the personal information we gather about you, and your right to obtain information about the sharing, storage, security and processing of that information.
  • Right to Correction. You have the right to request correction of your personal information.
  • Right to Erasure / “To be Forgotten”. This is your right to request, subject to certain limitations under applicable law, that your personal information be erased from our possession and, by extension, all of our service providers.
  • Right to Complain. You have the right to make a complaint regarding our handling of your personal information with the appropriate supervisory authority. To identify your specific authority or find out more about this right, EU individuals should go to [https://edpb.europa.eu/about-edpb/board/members_en](- Right to Complain. You have the right to make a complaint regarding our handling of your personal information with the appropriate supervisory authority. To identify your specific authority or find out more about this right, EU individuals should go to https://edpb.europa.eu/about-edpb/board/members_en (opens new window).
  • Right to Restrict Processing. This is your right to request restriction of how and why your personal information is used or processed, including opting out of sale of personal information. (Again: we never have and never will sell your personal data.)
  • Right to Object. You have the right, in certain situations, to object to how or why your personal information is processed.
  • Right to Portability. You have the right to receive the personal information we have about you and the right to transmit it to another party.
  • Right to not be subject to Automated Decision-Making. You have the right to object and prevent any decision that could have a legal, or similarly significant, effect on you from being made solely based on automated processes. This right is limited, however, if the decision is necessary for performance of any contract between you and us, is allowed by applicable law, or is based on your explicit consent.
  • Right to Non-Discrimination. This right stems from the CCPA. We do not and will not provide you a lower level of service because you have exercised your data privacy rights.

If you have questions about exercising these rights or need assistance, please contact us at blay09@eiradir.net.

If you are in the EU, you can identify your specific authority to file a complaint or find out more about GDPR, at https://edpb.europa.eu/about-edpb/board/members_en (opens new window).
