Creation of a user account requires a valid email address which will be stored for later use. You email address will only be used for Mantis-Eye Experiment-related issues and events and will never be sold, given out or otherwise released to any third parties. Participation in various giveaways or other site events may require a mailing address be sent, with the same privacy rules applying as with email addresses. On top of that mailing addresses will not be reused for any site-related purpose beyond the initially disclosed usage.

This information may be stored long-term for the purposes of tracking, analytics and to signify participation in certain things (such as voting on things or polls). However none of this specific information will be shared with any third party.
If you participate in the comments section(s) of the site be aware that these will be broadly available to all who have access to the site and as such will be public. Due to this you should take care to not post any personal information that you do not want revealed. If you make a request for it to be removed it may be several hours or more until this happens. Comments and their content are also never deleted (except in extreme circumstances), only disabled so information in them will still be viewable to people with moderator or administration privileges. These individuals should never use any information found on the site for their own personal use and if it is found that they are doing so they will immediately have said privileges revoked. Third parties who may obtain your personal information from the site in no way represent the views of The Mantis-Eye Experiment.
