All data collected by SHG is subject to analysis by our staff team and any third-party contractors we use. We may also share any relevant findings with our associates, as well as the relevant authorities should we find any illegal activity. Should it be deemed necessary to protect our users, we may also disclose certain data to other people/communities.
We do our best to ensure that your data is secure, however, no method of storage (virtual or otherwise) is 100% secure. We cannot and will not guarantee the absolute safety of any data we collect. Hacking does exist, and it’s entirely possible that we may be subject to being hacked at some point in time.
What data is collected where?:
- On the website:
IP addresses, location, usernames (assuming you log in, which you shouldn’t ever need to do unless you’re staff), page visits, code injection attempts.
Your data and will be screened by the external plugin firewalls we have for suspicious activity (such as trying to inject code onto the website). We use Wordfence and Defender for our Website.
- On Discord:
Usernames, UUID’s, chat messages, message deletions, message edits.
Your data will be logged by the external bots we use for server security to ensure safety for our users. We use Arcane, Capcha.bot, ProBot, and Suggester for our Discord. All of these have their own privacy policies, and we encourage you to read them.
Why do we collect this data?:
We collect the data displayed above primarily to ensure our server(s)/community stays safe and abides by our rules. Should you ever violate our rules, think of the data you’ve left behind as a digital fingerprint; we’ll only go dusting for them if we believe that you/others have broken our rules. We will never voluntarily sell your data. We value the privacy of our users, and we personally despise the practice of selling user data. Unfortunately, the third parties we use for our server(s)/community may not be as respectful to you, but we will do our best to ensure we only use services which keep your data private. If we’re using a service that has a spotty record, please let us know and we’ll try to find an alternative! However, you should be prepared to provide evidence. We won’t stop using a service for little to no reason on a hunch!
