This policy details how data about you is used when you access ActionRising. If we update it, we will revise the date, place notices on the site if changes are material, and/or obtain your consent as required by law.
There are three possible privacy settings: public, sitewide, and follows only. The first is visible to anyone on the internet, the second to anyone with an account on the site, and the third only to people you follow. You can pick one of these settings as your global default. Your profile page and any actions or slates you create will have this default privacy setting unless you specifically override it. Because this is a site for sharing information, we recommend you set your default to 'public', but it's up to you.
Some notes about how we implement privacy, for those who want the nitty gritty details:
You can control access to most of your data, including but not limited to actions and slates you create, the actions and slates you take, and your personal account settings and profile. If you choose to make this information public, your privacy will not be protected. Additionally, semi-restricted settings like 'sitewide' and 'friends only' rely on the discretion of other members of the site. Please do not assume complete privacy protection for anything you do on the site, with the following exceptions:
Although we cannot assure privacy for your activity on the site, we promise to do our best to protect it from hackers, government representatives, and malicious community members. If you think a fellow site member is acting in bad faith, please contact us.
User-created data such as actions, slates, comments, etc may be used by other members of the site for a variety of purposes. For instance, other members may copy your action outside the site in order to promote it. By using the site, you recognize that neither you nor ActionRising can fully control what happens to this class of data.
ActionRising site administrators may use member data to analyze site activity and improve user experience. Any public reports of this analysis will keep your identity private unless we receive explicit permission from you.
Your email addresses will be used to contact you about site activity, new features, and more. However, we will never give or sell your address to a third party.
We do not currently store any ISP or session data, and have no plans to ever start doing so. If this policy changes, we will proactively notify all members of the site.
Currently, there is no automated way to remove your data from the site. To promote consistency, we strongly encourage anonymizing data rather than deleting it. Please contact us if you would like your information anonymized, or if you need to remove your data for safety reasons.
