What data we collect from you
We utilise Plausible analytics to track anonymised data about your visit (e.g. pages visited).
We currently do not utilise server-side cookies, but we implement local browser storage to save certain settings (e.g. if a popup has been acknowledged).
The usage of our various products, such as MECS and GenTag may produce logs, which may include but is not limited to data that you specify in your request, such as:
- Your query input (e.g. the player name / user ID for MECS, nicknames for GenTag)
- Your IP address
- The date and time of your request
How your data is collected and stored
Most logs never leave the server they are hosted on, but in certain cases, these logs may be shared with 3rd party services, such as Plausible, which is secured by authenticating and limiting access to this data to authorised individuals only.
Since most of the APIs are open source on GitHub, you may review the source code to identify how exactly the data is being collected and processed.
How your data is used
We use the collected data as metrics and as a form of abuse prevention.
The anonymised analytics help us identify what areas or features that should be focused on for fixes and improvements to the user experience.
Metrics such as the query data help us to identify trends and improvements we can make to our products, while data such as the IP address and date/time can be used to blacklist abusers to ensure a better user experience for legitimate visitors.
We do not share your data to any party for marketing purposes, and any 3rd party involved in the data collection process is strictly for logging purposes only.
