Cookies may be either "persistent" cookies or "session" cookies: a persistent cookie will be stored by a web browser and will remain valid until its set expiration date, unless deleted by the user before the expiration date; a session cookie, on the other hand, will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed. We use only session cookies.

Cookies do not typically contain any information that personally identifies a user, but personal information that we store about you may be linked to the information stored in and obtained from cookies.

We use cookies for the following purposes:

  • (i) authentication - we use cookies to identify you when you visit our website and as you navigate our website.
  • (ii) status - we use cookies to help us to determine if you are logged into our website.
  • (iii) security - we use cookies as an element of the security measures to protect our website and services generally.

The Service will at times place and/or store code or other types of information and/or devices on your computer, mobile, or other device ("Local Device Storage"). We may use Local Device Storage for any lawful business purpose, including without limitation to track usage patterns, the movements of individual users, to help diagnose problems with our servers, to gather broad demographic information, to analyze trends, to conduct research, to record registration and personalization information, and to otherwise administer the Service. For example, if you register on any part of the Service and are given the option to save your username and password, we may provide this convenience to you via Local Device Storage. Local Device Storage may also collect and store your personally identifiable information.

If you do not want Local Device Storage, your computer, mobile, or other device may include an option that allows you to not accept it. However, if you disable Local Device Storage, some portions of the Service may not function properly.

Consent to Transfer of Information.

Your information may be transferred to, and maintained on, servers and databases located outside of your state, province, country, or other governmental jurisdiction where the privacy laws may not be as protective as your jurisdiction. Please be advised that we may transfer your information to and from any state, province, country, or other governmental jurisdiction and process it elsewhere. Your consent to this Privacy Policy, followed by your submission of such information, represents your agreement to any such transfer.

Security of Information.

In the event you are provided with an opportunity to establish an account or profile on our Site, you may be able to access your Personally Identifiable Information via the Service with your password and username. This password is encrypted. We advise against sharing your password with anyone. You need to prevent unauthorized access to your account and Personal Information by selecting and protecting your password and/or other sign-in mechanism appropriately and limiting access to your computer, browser, or mobile device by signing off after you have finished accessing your account. Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors, may compromise the security of user information at any time. If we believe that the security of your information may have been compromised, we may seek to notify you of that development.

We are committed to taking all reasonable precautions to safeguard the privacy of personal information which has been provided by its users. We use technical, contractual, administrative, and physical security steps to protect your personal information. Security measures such as restricted access and the use of passwords and encryption have been adopted to protect your personal information against loss or theft, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use, or modification. Our employees have been trained to respect your privacy at all times and those employees with access to your personal information shall use your personal information strictly in accordance with this Privacy Policy. If applicable, we will protect your credit card information by using industry-standard encryption technology.

No data transmission over the Internet or via e-mail is completely secure and therefore we cannot guarantee protection of all personal information in all cases. For example, we cannot guarantee protection against interception, misappropriation, misuse, or alteration, or that your information will not be disclosed or accessed by the unauthorized acts of others. Consequently, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. If you provide us with your credit card number, you should not send it unless your browser indicates that the access to our website is secure. Materials posted to online forums such as bulletin boards or chat rooms are public, not secure, and may be viewed by anyone. Any personal information you post may be collected and used by anyone and may result in unsolicited messages from other parties.

Warrant Canary

In the US and some other jurisdictions, some web operators can be served secret warrants, such as government subpoenas or national security letters, which from time to time may be accompanied by a gag order preventing the web operator from notifying the target (a User) of such an action that they have been subjected to surveillance. These warrants from law enforcement agencies are designed to force companies to turn over any records or details on their Users for investigation.

Private information of our Users has never been disclosed or seized, nor have we been compromised or suffered a data breach. As of the first stated above, Company has never received any national security letters, warrants, subpoenas, or gag orders from any governmental organization.

Additional Rights.

In this Section we have summarized the rights that you may have under data protection laws in the EEA. Some of the rights are complex, and not all of the details have been included in our summaries. Accordingly, you should read the relevant laws and guidance from the regulatory authorities for a full explanation of these rights.

Providing the rights and freedoms of others are not affected, we will supply to you a copy of your personal data. The first copy will be provided free of charge, but additional copies may be subject to a reasonable fee.

You have the right to have any inaccurate personal data about you rectified and, considering the purposes of the processing, to have any incomplete personal data about you completed.

In some circumstances, you have the right to the erasure of your personal data without undue delay. Those circumstances include: the personal data are no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed; you withdraw consent to consent-based processing; you object to the processing under certain rules of applicable data protection law; the processing is for direct marketing purposes; and the personal data have been unlawfully process. However, there are exclusions from the right to erasure.

In some circumstances, you have the right to restrict the processing of your personal data. Those circumstances may include: you contest the accuracy of the personal data; processing is unlawful, but you oppose erasure; we no longer need the personal data for the purposes of our processing, but you require personal data for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims; and you have objected to processing, pending the verification of that objection.

However, this right does not apply where it would adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.

To the extent that the legal basis for our processing of your personal information is consent, you have the right to withdraw that consent at any time. Withdrawal will not affect the lawfulness of processing before the withdrawal.

  • There are lines contained within this privacy policy that reveal things by their absence and what that is shall be left as an exercise for the reader.
  • They can; they just can't be part of a legal agreement. This is why someone else has to make the account for them (and thus assume understanding of the privacy policy).
  • If you connect a social media account here for verification, they're going to know about it. You do not have to do these verifications.
  • We don't allow tracking cookies or advertising cookies or third-party advertisers of any kind. This is both the raison d'etre for and a side effect of this privacy policy.
  • We don't store any of that. That is all kept by the credit card processing vendor.
  • We don't store that, either. Shipping addresses for Kickstarter or other promotional or sales systems are stored in other systems.
  • diceweaver makes use of your browser's "Local Storage" system to store some preference or state information; things like "did you collapse this or that sidebar", "what font size did you choose", and "what character are you operating". No personal data is ever kept in Local Storage.
  • There's only one cookie set on your browser and it simply contains a string of random characters (a session cookie). This is only so that the server knows who you are without you having to log in all the time.
  • ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ It's completely useless. There's no way for anyone to figure out who you are or to impersonate you even if they have it.
  • We don't really keep them. They're worth next-to-nothing to us (thinking in terms of click-trails is very two thousand and late) and whatever gets collected gets deleted about every other day.
  • We can't say we don't keep them -- as that wouldn't be true. It means that such logs exist (they are a by-product of all web servers) but we aren't keeping them intentionally. We have clean-up routines that constantly delete them so they have a very short life cycle.
  • Pretty much the same as the previous answer. Debug logs are interesting when you can see an error happen in real time, which means it's usually something you're specifically causing and on a development server -- and thus our production servers don't keep that level of log granularity. Production sticks with what can be thought of as ERROR (something broke), WARN (something weird but passable [like saving a character with a name of only spaces, say]) and INFO (utterly banal stuff [someone logged in, a character got updated]).
  • While we use some third-party libraries in our code (math.js, moment, quill, and socket.io), we are hosting them ourselves. This means that none of the CDNs (content delivery networks) see you, either.
  • Same.
  • Not gonna lie, we are tracking some stuff. Most of it is about bad-actor detection and identification, sometimes used for automatic responses. For example, we keep track of whenever someone attempts to log in to your account and if we detect a pattern of attack, we might take steps to automatically protect the account.
