Definitions

This Privacy Policy covers how GeorgeNet (“we” or “us”) collects information when you interact with websites, apps or other products (collectively, the “services”) that we operate, except those Services which provide a separate Privacy Policy.

Information we collect

Information provided to create your account, including your email address and full name, is required to be able to provide you with the services associated with an account. For example, we require an email address so that we can send password reset emails.

All information that you submit, except your Telegram ID and where explicitly stated, can be displayed publicly on GeorgeNet sites.

Information We Collect Automatically

Information about the requests that you make, such as the requested URL and the referring URL, including query strings but excluding request bodies. This information is only accessible to authorized staff members, and is used for troubleshooting, identifying abuse and improving the site. Unless we need to keep an excerpt of the data to debug an issue further or to help us track down or eliminate abuse of the services, we delete these logs within 30 days.

Information about your browser, such as IP addresses and user agent strings. If you are not logged into the site, this information is held in the same way as the information about requests that you make. For logged in members, we additionally store information about the IP addresses and browsers that you use for the purpose of identifying users who are abusing our system, such as by creating additional accounts after having been banned from the site.

Information from Cookies, such as the account that you are currently logged into or your timezone, is used to personalise your experience on the site. You can get more information about the cookies that we use, and how to opt out, in our Cookie Policy.

This site may contain embedded content from other services, including (without limitation) YouTube, Twitter, Facebook and Reddit. We do not share data with these services, but they may collect additional information about you, such as the videos that you watch which are embedded on this site but provided by their service. The data that they collect is governed by their respective privacy policies, and is not covered by this policy.

We use Yandex Metrica to help us analyse the use of our services, so that we can make them better. This information is stored in accordance with Yandex’s Privacy Policy. You can opt out of tracking by Yandex Metrica by installing their opt-out browser add-on.

To protect against spam, we may use Google’s reCAPTCHA to check whether you are a bot. Google may store cookies and usage data, in accordance with their Privacy Policy.
