The purpose of fanlistings is to have public online lists of fans of different subjects from all over the world. The fanlistings here at http://fani.nippu.net as well as the Robin Hobb fanlisting that is part of the same collective but is located at https://theplenty.net/rhfans/ are part of The Fanlistings Network (http://thefanlistings.org) and as such are required to collect certain data listed below.
When you join any theFanlistings.org-listed fanlisting, you are required to provide the following information, which is then displayed publicly on the fanlisting in question:
- * your name (which does NOT need to be your full or real name, nicknames/screen names are accepted)
- * an email address (which you can choose to hide from public view)
- * your country
You can also submit additional information, such as your website URL and in some cases additional details such as a reason why you’re a fan. Filling out these additional form fields is always completely voluntary.
The collected data is not used for anything other than displaying member names, countries and total number/numbers per countries on the fanlisting in question as well as in the statistics of the collective. It is not shared with any other parties, except in the case where I decide to “adopt out” the fanlisting: that is when the ownership of the fanlisting is transferred by me to another person. This process usually includes giving a copy of the database to the new owner so that members won’t have to re-join. After transferring the ownership and the database, I delete the original one database.
I do not use the collected email addresses for any purposes other than informing the members if the fanlisting URL has changed or if I am closing or adopting out
the fanlisting or if there are other significant changes.
The main purpose of requiring an email address from anyone who joins is that it allows members to set and change a password so they can edit their information or to reset a lost password.
But What About
Do you no longer have access to the email you joined with and would like to change your information?
Do you want to delete your information altogether?
Do you have any questions regarding this policy?
