: We receive and store any information you enter on our Web site or give us in any other way. You can choose not to provide certain information, but then you might not be able to take advantage of many of our features. We use the information that you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests, and communicating with you. Automatic Information
: We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example, like many Web sites, we use "cookies," and we obtain certain types of information when your Web browser accesses Chronicles of Gor. Although we will not be able to provide you with a personalized experience at Chronicles of Gor if we cannot recognize you, we want you to be aware that these tools exist. We also log IP (Internet Protocol) addresses, or the location of your computer on the Internet, and the date and time of your visit for systems administration and troubleshooting purposes. We use the IP address log in an aggregate fashion to track access to our site.Member Generated Content (Forums, Articles, Artwork and Chats)
: We offer message boards in our Forums section of the Site for our registered Members. Any information you disclose when posting to a Forum, along with your Member ID, becomes public and may be used by Chronicles of Gor. When you log into the Site, the fact that you are online may become visible to other Members in the "Who's Online" section, in your Profile and under your avatar in any post that you've made to a Forum. When you upload materials to the "Articles" or "Gallery" sections, make a comment on another member's Artwork, or make a post to the Forums, your Member ID may become visible not only to the other Members, but also to non-Members browsing the Site, as may the first few lines of your posts or Articles, although non-Members cannot read more than that, nor can non-Members view any portion of a post that is not at the time they are browsing the most recent post made to a topic or thread. Some Members choose to receive new posts via email, so any post you make to the Forums could be forwarded by another Member to other persons, even though we require in the ToS that they not do so without first obtaining your prior permission.
Live Chats are also hosted on the Site, and any posting to a chat becomes public to other Members as soon as it is published by you online. We archive Chat logs and if we make logs of Chats that you participated in available to the members (such as those of scheduled discussions), the messages you post to such a Chat will be visible to current and future Members, including those who may not also have participated in that Chat. For more information, see the Posting Guidelines
and read the Member generated content sections of the Terms and Conditions of Use
