Privacy Policy

Users will be notified of all privacy policy changes via an announcement post.

This privacy policy has been compiled to better serve those who are concerned with how their 'Personally identifiable information' (PII) is being used online. PII, as used in US privacy law and information security, is information that can be used on its own or with other information to identify, contact, or locate a single person, or to identify an individual in context. Please read our privacy policy carefully to get a clear understanding of how we collect, use, protect or otherwise handle your Personally Identifiable Information in accordance with our website.

Information we collect, and how it is used

We may use the information we collect from you when you register or use certain other site features in the following ways:

  • Optional email addresses provided to Phuks will be used for password recovery. Any user data collected from your use of the site may be used to improve or create site features.

Information security

All personal or private information is encrypted using SSL/TLS during transit. Your personal information is contained behind secured networks and is only accessible by a limited number of persons who have special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential.

As mentioned in our Terms of Service, users are responsible for the information they willingly post about themselves.

Do we use cookies?

Yes. Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computer's hard drive through your Web browser (if you allow) that enables the site's or service provider's systems to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information. Cookies on Phuks are used for things like keeping you logged in, or remembering if you're using the light or dark theme.

Third-party disclosure.

We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information unless we provide users with advance notice. This does not include website hosting partners and other parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or serving our users, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We may also release information when it's release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others' rights, property or safety.

Legal

California Online Privacy Protection Act

CalOPPA is the first state law in the nation to require commercial websites and online services to post a privacy policy. According to CalOPPA we agree to the following:

  • Users can visit our site anonymously.
  • Once this privacy policy is created, we will add a link to it on our home page or as a minimum on the first significant page after entering our website.
  • Our Privacy Policy link includes the word 'Privacy' and can be easily be found on the page specified above.
  • We agree to inform users about the data we collect and with whom it is being shared.

COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act)

When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under 13, the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission, the nation's consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children's privacy and safety online. We do not specifically market to children under 13.

Fair Information Practices

In order to be in line with Fair Information Practices, in the event of a data breach, users will be informed within 7 business days via an announcement post and in-site notification (personal message).

CAN SPAM Act

The CAN-SPAM Act is a law that sets the rules for commercial email, establishes requirements for commercial messages, gives recipients the right to have emails stopped from being sent to them, and spells out tough penalties for violations.

We collect your email address in order to:

  • Email a reset password option

To be in accordance with CANSPAM we agree to the following:

  • If at any time you would like to unsubscribe from receiving future emails, you can email us at admin@phuks.co and we will promptly remove you from ALL correspondence.
