If you are a legal person, and you feel I’ve missed something and/or are not complying with standards, please let me know! I’m a game developer, not a lawyer, so it’s possible I’ve missed a few things.
(Updated on: 11/17/2018)
Who we are
Our website address is: RandomMomentania.com, and we make game development tutorials, primarily using open source software!
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.
If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
Who we share your data with
RandomMomentania has no plans to sell or give out your data to any third parties with the exception of Patreon, which we are using to fund RandomMomentania.
In the extremely unlikely case this changes, there will be a blog post at least one week in advance to notify everyone of the change. Emails will be sent to all registered users notifying them of the change, at least one week in advance.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website, we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service, and we some data may be collected by Patreon automatically (see further below).
RandomMomentania has no plans to share your data without your consent. You will get advance notice of at least one week before any changes to how RandomMomentania handles your data!
Your contact information
You can contact Noah Beard, the owner of RandomMomentania, at TwistedTwigleg@RandomMomentania.com with any questions and concerns you may have.
How we protect your data
RandomMomentania is protected from viruses, hackers and malware by InMotion Hosting. RandomMomentania is actively scanned and protected, to ensure the highest level of security we can.
What data breach procedures we have in place
If there is a data breach, we will send everyone a email as soon as we know about it, about what data we think was stolen/accessed, and will take measures to ensure it does not happen again.
To best ensure a potential data breach does not harm you, please make sure to:
- Use a password unique to RandomMomentania.com. By not using a password you have used before, you greatly increase the chance of a data breach not effecting your other media accounts. One easy way to do this is by using a password management program, and using a randomly generated password.
- Do not share any personal information. If you do not share any personal information beyond the required information for your user profile. This reduces the chance of a data breach effecting you if there is a data breach in the future.
- In the case there is a data breach, change your information on all media accounts, especially the important ones (for example, a bank account). This makes it where if there is a data breach, the information gathered is much less useful to whoever has breached RandomMomentania.com
While we will do our very best to ensure this never happens, and we have InMotion to help prevent data breaches from happening, it is possible there could be a data breach in the future, as no security system is perfect.
Please do not leave/share any sensitive information on the accounts you have created on RandomMomentania! Thanks!
What third parties we receive data from
We receive data from Patreon so we can allow those who are helping fund RandomMomentania access exclusive tutorials and projects.
What automated decision making and/or profiling we do with user data
InMotion, RandomMomentania’s web host, does some basic statistics tracking. These services include: tracking page views, tracking unique visitors, and error tracking.
On top of that, there is spam checking, which monitors the site for spam and spam like actions.
