When browsing BDSMside, we log the same basic information that most websites do. For each request, we collect your IP address, browser type, language preference, the referring page, the page you requested, the date and time.
We also track specific events for statistical purposes (such as conversion rates and testing new designs).
We also ask you for your email address and date of birth. We ask you for your email address so that we can send you updates and other important information. We ask for your date of birth to make sure you are of legal age.
When you write to BDSMside with a question or to ask for help, we will keep that correspondence and the email address, for future reference.
We do not share, sell, rent, or trade member’s personal information with third parties for commercial purposes.
We do however sometimes share certain aggregated, non-personally identifying information with others about how the community collectively uses BDSMside. For example, we may compile statistics on how many daily, weekly, and monthly active members we have. However, we do not sell this information to advertisers or marketers.
The only times we will ever share your info is: to provide products or services you have requested, to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of our Terms of Service, or as otherwise required by law.
We use third-party vendors and hosting partners for hardware, software, networking, storage, and related technology we need to run BDSMside.
Other than your password, data is not encrypted while it is live in our database (since it needs to be ready to send to you when you need it), but we go to great lengths to secure your data at rest.
When you delete something from your profile, it will no longer be accessible to other member on the site, but depending on the content type, it will take several days to be permanently deleted from our database.
You can view and update your personal info at any time, from your account.
