The IP address will also be used in all messages posted in our forum by the user, to show others the country where the user is located.
The username, which must be created during registration by the user in a way which does not identify the person, will be publicly displayed with any message posted by the user in our forum and will identify the user in scoring tables, rankings, external services whose correct operation so requires, etc. The username will also be disclosed to the user’s referral if the user has been directly referred and, in this case, as well as any time, the user may choose to hide the username in the personal settings of the account. If a user is a rented referral of another user, the latter will not have access to the username of the former.
We are not responsible for the information a user voluntarily posts in our publicly accessible forum, where sharing any personal data or information that would allow anyone to identify a person is strictly prohibited. Since our forum is indexed by search engines, any messages posted in our forum cannot be removed upon user request unless we are legally ordered to do so.

We take all necessary and legally required precautions to ensure the protection of the information collected from registered users of this website. These precautions ensure online and offline security of this information.
The security of a user’s account also depends on the protection provided by the user, of their primary and / or secondary password, as well as their possible use of the two-step authentication.
We will never ask any user for passwords related to their account, therefore any email message or other form of communication, website or program that requests the password of an account from our website must be ignored.
If a user shares any of the passwords related to their account with another person for any reason, including but not limited to the promise of provision of services and the aggregation of accounts, that person will be able to access said user’s account and the respective personal data. Each user is always responsible for any actions taken in regard to their account regardless of the situation.

This website includes links to third-party websites. Those websites are governed by their own privacy policies and terms of service; therefore, we are not responsible for their operations, including but not limited to, their information practices, protection and data handling.

The user has the right to be "forgotten", as well as the right to request the removal of his / her personal data. To simplify this process, these rights will be automatically exercised after the permanent suspension of a user's account takes place, as defined in this policy. Notwithstanding this automated process, the user will be able to exercise said rights at will; this action will lead to the withdraw of the previously given consent regarding the treatment of all relevant data, therefore such requests will have to be made according to the procedure for requesting the withdrawal of consent as defined in this policy.
In the event a user's registered account on this website is permanently suspended due to non-compliance with the Terms of Service, inactivity or any other valid reason, we reserve the right not to authorize the use of this data for the registration of a new account on this website in order to comply with the Terms of Service, as well as to protect the service in general, all other users and service providers.
We further inform that a user’s personal data will only be actively used for accounts that are active. When an account is permanently suspended, the use of its personal data will be done in a passive manner in order to comply with our Terms and Services, solve problems, avoid fraud, resolve disputes or respond to legal issues and requirements, among other uses grounded upon our private use, ceasing any sharing of information that the user had previously authorized to be made to external services except where legally necessary.
After a permanent suspension of a user’s account, we will only archive data that is strictly necessary to comply with our Terms of Service, protection of the service in general and any legal obligation among other, as long as the service is available; all non-essential data will be immediately and automatically discarded at that time.
We point out that the data subject has the right to withdraw the previously given consent at any time by simply sending a request to our support team from the respective account and requesting the withdrawal of consent of all data processing, which will take place after the necessary confirmation that the request originates from the current owner of the account in question, with the user being aware that such act does not compromise the lawfulness of the processing made based on the consent previously given and that the user will not be able to access this website from that moment onward. The same will automatically apply after the cease of use of a user's account for the period defined in our Terms of Service, after which said account will be permanently suspended.
