Outlines look very ugly on rotating things.

16 <h1>Privacy Policy</h1>
17 </header>
18 <main>
19 <h2>Our Site</h2>
20 <p>
21 Rather than a policy about how we're going to protect the data
22 we gather about you, we've got a simpler plan: We'll try as
23 hard as we can to <em>not</em> gather data about you.
24 We'd also like to help you defuse and poison other tracking
25 services.
26 </p>
27 <h3>Log Data</h3>
28 <p>
29 We log HTTP requests in order to help maintain our site - fix
30 broken links, block spammers, and so on. These logs look like
31 </p>
32 <pre> - - [03/Sep/2014:13:45:06 +0000] "GET /heroik/heroik.html HTTP/1.1" 200 1616 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.10; rv:32.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/32.0"</pre>
33 <p>
34 They contain your IP, the URL you visited, when you visited
35 it, what browser you were using, and (sometimes) where you
36 came from. Your browser sends this to every site you visit. If
37 you think it's too much information, most browsers have some
38 way to send less - for example, in Firefox you can
39 set <code>network.http.sendRefererHeader</code> to
40 <code>false</code> and install <a href="https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/user-agent-switcher/">User Agent Switcher</a>.
41 </p>
42 <h3>Mail</h3>
43 <p>
44 We host our own email service. Email sent to yukkurigames.com
45 <a href="http://mako.cc/copyrighteous/google-has-most-of-my-email-because-it-has-all-of-yours">does not go through GMail on our end</a>.
47 </p>
48 <h3>Cookie Policy</h3>
49 <p>
50 We don't use cookies or anything like cookies to track you.
51 </p>
52 <p>
53 We use <em>extremely</em> short-lived cookies to prevent
54 request forgery. These don't contain any identifying
55 information and they self-destruct after a few seconds.
56 </p>
57 <p>
58 For long-term data we use HTML5
59 <a href="http://diveintohtml5.info/storage.html">localStorage</a>
60 and other similar <em>client-side storage</em>. This gives you
61 the benefits of cookies, plus your data is never sent to the
62 server, so there's nothing to secure.
63 </p>
64 <h3>Security</h3>
65 <p>
66 We don't track any user data via this site, so we have no
67 special databases to secure.
68 </p>
69 <p>
70 If you are concerned about your connection being intercepted
71 by someone else, <a href="https://yukkurigames.com/">we offer
72 HTTPS for our main domain</a>. We would like to offer it
73 for more, but the CA racket means we can't afford it.
74 In the future we hope CAs are replaced by something like
75 <a href="http://convergence.io/">Convergence</a> so cheap
76 security is available for everyone, but right now it doesn't
77 work reliably.
78 </p>
79 <h2>Third-Party Links</h2>
80 <p>
81 Because this is the web, we link to other sites. Some of our
82 games are only available from other sites, because trading
83 money for games requires handling at least a little personal
84 data. We'd rather that be done by people good at doing it.
85 </p>
86 <p>
87 Most of these sites don't care about your privacy. Sometimes
88 at least they'll be providing you a useful service in exchange
89 for surveilling you, but usually they're willing to sell you
90 out to a dozen firms via Google in exchange for a pretty bar
91 graph.
92 </p>
93 <p>
94 We think it's awful, too. Sorry.
95 </p>
96 <p>
97 To protect yourself on these sites, we recommend you use tools
98 to help you browse the web safely and securely. One easy and
99 reliable one is
100 <a href="https://disconnect.me/">Disconnect</a>.
101 <a href="https://prism-break.org/">PRISM Break has more suggestions</a>,
102 though it's unfortunately-named because this problem <a href="http://www.hiddendriver.com/projects/the-peoples-platform">neither
103 begins nor ends with the PRISM program or state surveillance</a>.
104 </p>
105 <h2>
106 Other Stuff We Don't Do That You Should Push Other Sites To
107 Also Not Do
108 </h2>
109 <ul>
110 <li>
111 We don't run Google Analytics or Cloudfront Analytics or
112 Cloudflare Clicky or any of that garbage. Even if a site
113 needs to collect data for its own operation, these services
114 also feed that data into even larger and more troubling
115 corporate databases.
116 </li>
117 <li>
118 We don't use Google's fonts; we host them ourselves. <a href="http://blog.milandinic.com/wordpress/plugins/disable-google-fonts/">Most
119 Wordpress sites are helping Google track their readers and
120 they don't even know it.</a> At
121 the very least, demand a cut of Google's revenue if you're
122 going to work for them.
123 </li>
124 <li>
125 We don't put stock "share" buttons on our site. Aside from
126 being useless eyesores <a href="https://www.eff.org/press/releases/stop-sneaky-online-tracking-effs-privacy-badger">these
127 buttons are used by social media companies to track you on
128 other sites</a>. Tools like <a href="https://www.eff.org/privacybadger">EFF's Privacy Badger</a> and <a href="https://disconnect.me/">Disconnect</a> can
129 help block these on other sites.
130 </li>
131 <li>
132 We don't minify or obfuscate most files &mdash; HTML, CSS,
133 or JavaScript &mdash; we serve. This means it's easy for you
134 to check what we're doing with just your browser.
135 </li>
136 </ul>
137 <h2>Changes</h2>
138 <p>
139 We may update this Privacy Policy from time to time. Since
140 this document is <a href="http://git.yukkurigames.com/?p=yukkurigames.com.git;a=history;f=privacy.html">stored in our site's Git repository</a>, you can easily track these changes.
