Privacy Policy

At Howl of the Lost Wolf, we collect and manage user data according to the following Privacy Policy, with the goal of incorporating our values: transparency, accessibility, sanity, usability. This document is part of Howl of the Lost Wolf's Terms of Service, and by using (the “Website”), you agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy and the Terms of Service. Please read the Terms of Service in their entirety, and refer to those for definitions and contacts.

At Howl of the Lost Wolf, we use the "Privacy by Design" approach. This means that we think of privacy implication before building a new feature, we don't ask for information we don't need, and we protect the information we have. We take pride in treating our users' privacy the way we'd like to be treated by a website like Howl of the Lost Wolf, as individuals.

Data Collected

We collect anonymous data from every visitor of the Website to monitor traffic and fix bugs. For example, we collect information like web requests, the data sent in response to such requests, the Internet Protocol address, the browser type, the browser language, and a timestamp for the request.

We ask you to log in with a Google Account and provide certain personal information (such as your email address) in order to be able to associate comments with your account. In order to enable these or any other login based features, we use cookies to store session information for your convenience. You can block or delete cookies and still be able to use Howl of the Lost Wolf, although if you do you will then be asked for your username and password every time you log in to the Website. The Website will display your ‘nickname’, as defined by your Google Account, to associate your login with any comments you may make, however if you have no ‘nickname’ set in your Google Account the account may report your ‘nickname’ as your real name or email address and Google Accounts may instruct the Website to display that as your name to be associated with any comments you may make. To view the name that comments will be posted as, click your email address, once logged into the website, and a popup window will appear where the first line will display your ‘nickname’ that will be used when making a comment on the Website.

The Website does not manage or store information relating to your Google Account, except the information required to uniquely identify you with any comments you may make. This information is, your Google Account email address, your unique Google Account user id, and your Google Account Federated Identity (a means of linking a person's electronic identity and attributes, stored across multiple distinct identity management systems, in this case Google Accounts).

As at the time of this agreement the Website is unable to provide functionality for a user to delete individual comments that they may make, however you may contact the Website’s owner to request removal of any comments that you may make.

Minors and children should not use Howl of the Lost Wolf. By using the Website, you represent that you have the legal capacity to enter into a binding agreement.
