Hard Light Productions is the current owner of the FreeSpace Wiki, and whatever happens on the FreeSpace Wiki stays on the FreeSpace Wiki.
Any information you provide to us is used only for the purposes of:
- Providing enhanced functionality of the site.
- Verifying the authenticity of any contributions you make to the FreeSpace Wiki.
- Ensuring that you are a non-malicious human/robot who is contributing to the FreeSpace Wiki.
Unless legally obligated to by a court of law, Hard Light Productions will not divulge or process any personal information you provide on the FreeSpace Wiki for any reasons other than the purposes mentioned above.
This policy is updated whenever the timestamp at the bottom of this page changes, but if we think the update is major enough, we will create a thread on the Hard Light Productions Forums about it.

Hard Light Productions ("HLP") owns and operates the FreeSpace Wiki, located at https://wiki.hard-light.net (the "Site"). This page informs you of our policies regarding the collection, use, and disclosure of personally identifiable information on the Site that can be used to contact or identify you ("Personal Information").
By using the Site, you agree to our collection and use of your information in accordance with this policy.
Information We Collect
While using the Site, we may ask you to provide us with certain Personal Information which includes, but may not be limited to, your e-mail address.
Cookies are files with small amount of data, which may include an anonymous unique identifier. Cookies are sent to your browser from a web site and stored on your computer.
Whenever you access the Site, we automatically receive the IP address of the device (or your proxy server) you are using to access the Internet, which could be used to infer your geographical location.
Depending on your device settings, we may sometimes automatically receive location data from your device. For instance, if you upload an image, we may receive metadata, such as the software you used to create or modify the image, or the time you last modified the image, automatically from your device. If you do not want metadata sent to us and made public at the time of your upload, please change the settings on your device.
How We Use Your Information
Basic Site Access
Your Personal Information is used for us to provide fundamental access to the Site, and to enable you to view and peruse the contents of the Site.
Enhanced Site Functionality
In some instances, such as a change in your Site Preferences, we use your Personal Information to provide enhanced features of the Site.
We use your Personal Information to verify any modifications you make to the site, and ensure that said modifications are not malicious towards the goal of the Site.
For Legal Reasons
We will access, use, preserve, and/or disclose your Personal Information if we reasonably believe it necessary to satisfy a valid and legally enforceable warrant, subpoena, court order, law or regulation, or other judicial or administrative order. However, if we believe that a particular request for disclosure of a user's information is legally invalid, or an abuse of the legal system, and the affected user does not intend to oppose the disclosure themselves, we will ignore it.
If You Make It Public
Any information you post publicly on the Site is just that – public. For example, if you put your mailing address on your user or talk page, that is public, and not protected by this Policy. Please think carefully about your desired level of anonymity before you disclose Personal Information on your user page or elsewhere.
Security of Your Information
The security of your Personal Information is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the internet, or method of electronic storage, is absolutely secure. While we strive to use commercially accepted means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
