EcoCityCraft's Minecraft community operates several services, including its Minecraft server, website/forum, TeamSpeak, and provides special features for the server via Paypal. In accordance with the running of these services, EcoCityCraft does collect some non-personally identifiable information, such as timestamps and traffic data, as well as some personally identifiable information, such as Internet Protocol (IP) addresses.
It is EcoCityCraft's policy to keep this information safe, as well as to allow users to express concerns for how this information is being used.
EcoCityCraft's Use of Non-Personally Identifiable Information
EcoCityCraft's use of non-personally identifiable information is for the purposes of better understanding how users use the site. This may include date and time of user requests, browser type, referring sites, and other general information. The only pieces of this information that may be publically and specifically tracable to you is the date and time of forum posts and edits of those forum posts.
EcoCityCraft's Use of Personally Identifiable Information
1. Internet Protocol (IP) Addresses
EcoCityCraft's website, forums and TeamSpeak services all make use of logging of IP addresses for Staff purposes. In none of these cases is your IP address shown to anyone outside of EcoCityCraft Staff and Administration, except as outlined below.
Certain members of EcoCityCraft Staff have access to your IP address for the purposes of moderation and Administrative action, and all members of the Staff team with access to this information understand and agree that they are not to publically distribute this information in any manner, as outlined below. Should you feel concerned that your IP address has been made publically available through EcoCityCraft and its Staff team, you should contact the Administrator regarding this so that it may be investigated and dealt with accordingly.
It is important to note that when connecting to the EcoCityCraft IRC channel through either a client or the web link, your IP will be publically visible through that service.
2. Other Personally Identifiable Information
EcoCityCraft may occasionally ask for personally identifiable information in order to use its services. This includes, but is not limited to, submitting your e-mail address when signing up for the forums.
EcoCityCraft's special features purchase verification process requires users to submit proof of their identity and, in some cases, proof of possession of card used in transactions.
All of this information is kept private, for Administrator access only. In the case of special feature purchase verification, only the lead Administrator is ever made privy to any information you submit, and it will never be distributed outside of these services, except as outlined below. Users always have the option to opt out providing this information, but understand that by doing so, they may be limited in the extent they can use EcoCityCraft's website and other services.
Protection and Distribution of Information to Third Parties
EcoCityCraft discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to Staff that need to know that information in order to process it on EcoCityCraft's behalf and that have agreed not to disclose it to others.
Some of these Staff members may be located outside of your home country; by using EcoCityCraft’s services, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.
EcoCityCraft will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying or personally-identifying information to anyone.
Other than to its Staff team, as described above, EcoCityCraft discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a court order or other governmental request, or when EcoCityCraft believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of itself, third parties or the public at large. EcoCityCraft will always take all measures necessary to comply with local, national and international laws, where required.
If you are a registered user of an EcoCityCraft's website and have supplied your email address, we may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what is going on with EcoCityCraft. These emails can be opted out of via your forum settings. Your e-mail address will never be distributed without your consent.
EcoCityCraft and its Staff team take all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If you post your information publically on the forums, in-game, in TeamSpeak, or anywhere else within EcoCityCraft's services, you understand that you are giving consent for that information to become public knowledge. EcoCityCraft does not, nor will it ever, require you to make any information public knowledge, and strongly recommends against it. As EcoCityCraft has an international userbase, you should always be wary of whom you are speaking to, and how much information you disclose to them.
