This privacy statement describes Project Connect’s policy concerning the gathering and sharing of visitors’ information through the Project Connect Web Application (webapp), located at https://game.projectconnect.world. By using the Project Connect webapp you are accepting the practices described in this policy.
In general, you can browse the Project Connect webapp without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself. The only information we gather during general browsing is from standard server logs. These include your IP (Internet Protocol) address, domain name, browser type, operating system, and information such as the web site that referred you to us, the pages you visit, and the dates/times of those visits.
If you log on, you will be asked to provide personal information such as your name, e-mail address and profile picture. This information is collected only with your knowledge and permission, and is kept in a Project Connect database. This information is collected through one of the authentication providers offered: Facebook, Google, Twitter and GitHub.
The information gathered during general browsing of the “projectconnect.world” domain is used to analyse trends and usage of the Project Connect site and to improve the usefulness of the site. It is not connected with any personal information. However, if you have registered with Project Connect's webapp, the information we collect about your normal web usage will be identifiable to you.

What if I don’t want to provide personal information?
Providing personal information on the Project Connect webapp is optional. If you choose not to provide personal information, you can still browse and use the Project Connect webapp, but you will not be able to carry out certain actions such as accessing your profile with statistics about your activity on the webapp.
At any time, you can cancel or modify your information by contacting us.
However, Project Connect assumes no responsibility for the security of information.
The Project Connect's webapp contains links to sites external to the projectconnect.world domain. Project Connect is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such sites.
By visiting or using this web application (webapp), a cookie will be created which Project Connect may use to provide statistics that help us to give you the best experience of our sites. The statement below describes our policy on cookies.
So – what is a cookie? When you enter a site your computer will automatically be issued with a cookie. Cookies are text files which identify your computer to our server. Cookies in themselves do not identify the individual user, just the computer used. Many sites do this whenever a user visits their site, in order to track traffic flows. Cookies themselves only record which areas of the site have been visited by the computer in question, and for how long. Users have the opportunity to set their computers to accept all cookies, to notify them when a cookie is issued, or not to receive cookies at any time, although this of course means that certain personalised services cannot then be provided to that user. You should read the information that came with your browser software to see how you can do this. Even assuming you have not set your computer to reject cookies, you can browse our sites anonymously until such time as you register your information with Project Connect.
Project Connect does not collect and analyze the data to create cookies directly; we use a specialist service provider which both collects information on your preferences from your visits to our websites and analyzes your preferences from cookies already stored in your browser.
We obtain this information by enabling Google Analytics to analyze the traffic on our websites via "Google Advertising Cookies". Google Advertising Cookies are a series of cookies already stored in your browser that compile data from your browsing preferences. You can see the types of cookies used by Google and learn more about the different categories in the Google privacy & terms.
We may change our specialist service provider at any time without notice to you and will update this Policy as necessary at that time.
There are many websites that provide guidance on how to opt out of the collection and use of your information for promotional purposes that are not limited to Project Connect web properties. For example:
We do not sell or share any data from your cookies to any third party without prior consent.
Maps on this site do not reflect a position by Project Connect on the legal status of any country or territory or the delimitation of any frontiers.
