THRONEMASTER.NET is committed to protect your privacy. THRONEMASTER.NET respects the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) by the EU and tries to comply in any possible way.
This Statement of Privacy applies to THRONEMASTER.NET's web site including services of our sub domains and governs data collection and usage at all THRONEMASTER.NET sites and services;
it does not apply to other online or offline sites, products or services.
Please read the THRONEMASTER.NET Statement of Privacy.
THRONEMASTER.NET is a general audience web site, intended for users of 16 years and above.
Personal data of all users is collected, used and disclosed as described in this Statement of Privacy.
Personal data is any type of data that can be used to directly or indirectly identify an individual (data subject). Some examples of personal data are name, picture, phone number, address (which enable direct identification), as well as IP address or user name (which enable indirect identification).
The collection, processing and storage of personal data is strictly regulated by the GDPR. It is therefore important to know exactly how personal data is collected, managed and stored by your digital analytics provider. Your use of personal data must also be documented, and you must clearly inform your end users.
A data subject is any person whose personal data is being collected, held or processed.
As a result, anyone becomes at some point a data subject – whether they are applying for a job, booking a flight, using their credit card or just browsing the internet, they disclose some personal data.
User Account Registration
First of all, THRONEMASTER.NET does not collect any information about visitors!
Only registered users have access to the whole spectrum of our services. They exclusively are object of interest.
For them THRONEMASTER.NET needs minimal information like user name, e-mail address and basic session information (IP and used browser identity).
With this alone the user can nearly use every feature which is available.
Users with moderating function have additional rights to manage this web site, of course.
Members of THRONEMASTER.NET's community can unregister at any time and delete all their personal data this way.
Collection of Personal Data
As an non-commerce web site, THRONEMASTER.NET only collects personal data, such as your e-mail address, user name - which can be a nickname - and anonymized IP addresses.
Any further profile information is only stored if the user freely decides to submit them. Technically, they are not needed or in any case mandatory to use our services on a programmatic basis.
THRONEMASTER.NET does not collect any information about your specific computer hardware and software. Only general browser data such as the - by default sent - used user agent is stored for statistical reasons.
The user reference is session based and deleted after 30 days.
THRONEMASTER.NET encourages you to review the privacy statements of web sites you choose to link to or from THRONEMASTER.NET so that you can understand how those web sites collect, use and share your information.
THRONEMASTER.NET is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on web sites outside of the THRONEMASTER.NET web sites.
Usage of Personal Data
- The user's E-Mail is the most important and highly used information for THRONEMASTER.NET. Account identification, restoration and password resets are only possible via e-mail, at the moment. Any kind of subscription which the user is able to fully control is implemented via email. This encloses forum notifications about new posts and threads, notifications about new private or ingame chat messages, notifications about changes in specific bugtracker issues the user subscripted, notifications about new public games and player's turn notifications. Also, the user can decide to be able to be reachable via e-mail to THRONEMASTER.NET's moderation and administration team. That might be useful in case of emergencies like unaccessible or blocked accounts. Furthermore, a subscription to THRONEMASTER.NET's irregularly sent newsletter is possible. The user is able to enable or disable any kind of e-mail notification at any time.
- The profile information like country, location, date of birth, gender, job, interests and private URL which a user voluntary submits is only displayed on the user's profile page. Sharpening your profile is highly accepted on community web sites and leads to improved social interaction and acceptance between users. This should help to establish good relationships and respectful behaviour.
- Cookies are used for session references and they implement the "remember me" feature for automatic log in if the user decides to use it. THRONEMASTER.NET's Cookies have a valid life time of 30 days tops since the connected session is cleared and deleted regularly to protect THRONEMASTER.NET's users. In addition, Cookies can contain encrypted data about previous visits for statistical reasons.
THRONEMASTER.NET does not use or disclose sensitive personal data, such as race, religion, or political affiliations, without your explicit consent.
THRONEMASTER.NET may access and/or disclose your personal data if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to:
(a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on THRONEMASTER.NET or the site;
(b) protect and defend the rights or property of THRONEMASTER.NET, including its web site; or
(c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of THRONEMASTER.NET or the public.

Security & Protection of Personal Data
THRONEMASTER.NET is committed to protecting the security of your personal data and uses state of the art technologies to protect sensible information like your personal data.
All our services communicate via encrypted web protocol HTTPS.
Any attempt to access via unencrypted HTTP will automatically redirected to HTTPS.
This should protect you from simple man-in-the-middle or electronic eavesdropping attacks.
Also, form data to contact us or to submit user credentials to access your account's data is protected this way.
The profile data you freely submit might be used to identify you as natural person is not simply stored in our database.
THRONEMASTER.NET encrypts all your personal data such as your email address, location, country, gender, date of birth, job, personal interests and private URL with currently as safe-to-use declared AES algorithm on our persistence layer.
So even if our database got hacked your data will be protected. The decryption can only be processed on application side.
User passwords are hashed as well, of course, and never be stored in plaintext. For that a bcrypt algorithm with random hash values is used.
All session based information like your IP address(es) which could lead to you as an individual are stored anonymized or hashed.
Session data and cookie references are deleted completely and automatically after 30 days.
As an important side note, none of our users' personal information is publicly accessible.
Only registered users can access another user's profile. E-Mail addresses are never displayed to any regular user of THRONEMASTER.NET or anonymous instance.

Right of Access by the Data Subject
THRONEMASTER.NET offers the user a fully automated request/response system for the data subject's data.
The user can request the data by verifying identity via current e-mail and account password in the account information section.
The information will be send out via E-Mail attachment or in cases of unexpected big package size as link to a zipped data file.
THRONEMASTER.NET ensures the requests are processed within 4 weeks time since submission in compliance with the GDPR.
Right to object
According to article 21 of the GDPR any individual has the right to object to the processing of their personal data.
The easiest and fastest way to stop processing personal data is to unregister from 16 via the account settings.
This will initialize the automated deletion process of all personal data.
If a user needs immediate deletion of all personal data and processing of personal data ignoring the social component of our community, the deletion can be requested via our contact form.
The only pre-condition is that the administration needs to get proof about the account's ownership.
Right to erasure
According to article 17 of the GDPR the data subject has "the right to be forgotten"
To address this, THRONEMASTER.NET implemented a new privacy feature a user is able to use.
By activating it via the account privacy settings an automatic unregistration process will be started which will delete all personal data after a fixed amount of time of inactivity.
Sharing Data with Third Parties
THRONEMASTER.NET does NOT share any of your data with third parties!
THRONEMASTER.NET does NOT sell any of your data to third parties!
THRONEMASTER.NET tracks its users only locally via simple IP and Cookie data to ensure session safety and a way to use our "remember me" feature for automatic log in if the user decides to use it (opt-in).
This is intended to protect the user against account hijacking and unfair usage of our services to gain advantage over others.
THRONEMASTER.NET does not use any third party software like Google Analytics
to analyze its users.
There can never be a good for a non-profit (in financial context) community reason to spy on its users.
Services of THRONEMASTER.NET do contain links to external sources of the internet.
We have no influence on the content of those sources and their privacy policies and implementations of such.
Nevertheless, THRONEMASTER.NET tries to control those contents regularly to remove references with inadequate content.
Besides that, users can post inappropriate content via poll comments, shoutbox and the forum.
THRONEMASTER.NET is supported by a team of unpaid moderators who look out for members who do not play by he rules to keep our platform clean.
Social Media Buttons

Thus, such buttons, tracking cookies and API connections have no use for THRONEMASTER.NET.
Also, the privacy of our users is of much more importance than popularity over the World Wide Web.
THRONEMASTER.NET offers PayPal to accept donations to support its project and server costs.
If the user voluntary decides to use our donation buttons the THRONEMASTER.NET web site, PayPal's web sites will be visited.
The user should be aware that PayPal can collect personal data from those visits.
