Here's our privacy policy:

1) PPM is no business.

- PPM is made for the fun of visitors and members. This means that we don't have any commercial objectives and we do not seek your money. We do not collect/sell/care about/distribute/ any kind of private information about you. You are not obligated to put any kind of true information about you and anything personal.

2) (File/documents/data/any sort of material) (uploaded/distributed/posted) by fans is from the one(s) who made it.

- Any files that you create and/or post here is from the person (or group) who created it, including files uploaded in tutorials, maps, 3d models, files submitted to mod projects, etc... By submitting a file here, you allow everyone to download it (unless otherwise stated by yourself) and modify it as long as the original creator is credited (also, unless the original author states another rule for the file he submits). Also, by submitting the file here, you must make sure that you have authorization by the creator of the file to distribute it/ see it/expose it to everyone.

3) We don't put any harmful cookies.

- Our site uses the cookies from phpBB forums. The information on this cookie is used exclusively by phpBB forums used in PPM. Nothing else will use this info unless someone hacks into your computer or some malicious site use some bug from your navigator to view it. The information contained in your cookies will NEVER be seen by any other visitor, member or site administrator. However, some places may contain advertisements from Google, who is responsible for their own cookies (they are beyond our control).

4) Forum passwords are top secret to everyone, members, guests, visitors and site administrators.

- No one can see your password, even if you hack into our MySQL, because it's encrypted and neither the forums knows how to decrypt it. So, do not reveal it to anyone if you want no one to use it.

5) IPs, hostnames are not of our business if you don't do anything wrong.

- We will not distribute your IP, hostname or any other online data around if you do not try to hack us or any network near us (currently: Revora, TiberiumWeb, etc...) . This kind of data is used only to detect the person who hacked and how to avoid it happening again.

6) If the rules above change, we will post the change in the announcements forum or in a reply here.



If you have any comments, ideas, suggestions on how to improve it, feel free to post comments about it.

The text above has been updated with some grammar/spelling fixes and it also mentions Google Ads in the 3rd policy, which is something beyond our control.

The last rule was altered to allow me to post updates as replies in this topic. I don't think anyone will mind that change #Tongue.

I think the 2nd paragraph should clearly mention the use of the http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/4.0/ license.
Of course, unless otherwise stated by the uploader.

... Just to make things even more clear, on a legal level.  Smile

No, I shouldn't. It's up to the user to determine its license. If the user does not determine the license, the terms stated above are more liberal than creative commons 4.0. I.e.: it does not prevent anyone from using these assets in commercial products as long as credits are given.

Bah, I guess I should have also added http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0/ when I typed my previous comment. This Creative Commons license is even more permissive (than the other I linked) since it allows commercial producs.

While this would cover public assets, the same license wouldn't suit most mods that were uploaded here, considering their assets can only be used with the mod creator's permission.
Most mod creators also won't want to allow others to create modifications of their mod ("mod mods") and when they do, it's going to be under certain conditions (such as that the "mod mod" can't be stand-alone).

The other problem that I've implicitly mentioned in my reply above and I'll make it more explicit here, is that this kind of license enforces that those who use these assets also use this same license. As I said above, it is up to the user to determine the license.
