We fully understand the desire for privacy, specially when it comes to magic. This policy is to let you know how and why we collect information from you and what we do with that information.
Information we collect
We collect standard web logs from all visitors to the website. This information includes your ip address, time of visit and the pages you visited. This information is automatically recorded by the web server. All web servers for all websites around the world collect this same information. Visitors who wish to contribute to the site must register and by doing so supply us with a username and a password. An email is also required to authenticate users. They will only be known by this username they select. Optional information may also be included but is not mandatory for users wishing to post to the site. Optional information includes birthdate, your real name, occupation, email address and a picture.
Cookies are a common tool used to track visitors to websites. Your cookies MUST be enabled if you wish to post information on the website and be a registered member, or if you wish to shop in our online store. If you are not a member or do not log in, they do not need to be activated. When you do log in we place a simple cookie on your computer which includes your unique user id used by the website to identify you and a session id used to ensure that no one can fake your identity. No other information is collected or stored with cookies. In essence the cookie allows you to sign in once and remain signed in until you leave.
What we do with this information
Pretty much nothing. Your information will never be sold, given away or handed over unless required to do so by law. We will never send you mail with the exception of email in the case the website goes offline and returns online at a new address. Any information we collect is the bare minimal amount of information needed to allow a site like this to function technically or optional information which allows you to share a little bit more about yourself to the rest of the community.
