Post news Report RSS Privacy Policy and Terms of Use Updated

By now, you've probably been inundated with emails from sites updating their privacy policy and terms of use, so lets get down to business.

Posted by on

On the 25th May 2018, EU's General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) will be coming into effect. Although these changes are spurred by European law, we are strong believers that every users privacy is important, and have done a complete review of our system to ensure the continued privacy and security of all our users personal data.

Here is a quick summary of the changes we've made to our Privacy Policy and Terms of Use which will come into effect on the 25th May 2018:

  • We have always allowed our users to request a complete deletion of their account, by following the instructions provided in our Privacy Policy. We shall soon open up this tool to automate the process for our users that want their account deleted.
  • We shall also add a tool which allows our users to request a copy of data we have stored on you to review, and for data portability purposes.
  • We aim to collect the minimum amount of personal data required, to operate the site. We don't sell this data or track you outside of the site. This won't be changing, instead, we're being more specific on how we use the information we collect, how long we keep that data, and the rights you have regarding it.
  • Finally, we're providing more clarity around the legal bases we use to process your information, including providing the service to you, complying with the law, improving our services, and providing a safe and welcoming environment for everyone.
  • We shall be migrating all domains to SSL/HTTPS next week (this work has been completed).

We encourage you to review our updated Privacy Policy and Terms of Use. It takes effect May 25th, 2018. By using DBolical network sites on or after that date, you'll be agreeing to the changes. If you have questions about these changes, feel free to reach out to us at legal@dbolical.com.

Cool, nice to see somebody still have enough integrity to not sell their customers down the river.

(and I also didn't even notice moddb wasn't on https already)

I appreciate the thought and all the good work you people have put into this site and the community.
Its been so long since I started lurkin' here. I was actually a kid (16-17) back then and now, at age of 26, despite my day to day work and all the other responsibilities as an adult, I still come back to check on all these hot Mods coming out each week.

Thanks once again to all the moddb staff and all the great work you've done throughout all these years.

Cheers from Poland,
D

We are not as active as we once were, but 16 years on members like you are the reason we work so damn hard on the site. Did you see we just launched Mod.io. It’s a bit different but hoping it plays a big role in our future. Thanks for your support
