The Realm of Eidolon collects personal information (name and email address) only under the following circumstances and attending purposes:
1) A visitor may voluntarily provide his/her email address on the contact form so that I am able to reply to his/her query. Such addresses are not stored nor will they be shared with any third party for any reason other than as might be required by law enforcement officials. Communication that results in a permanent addition to the website, (such as the link exchange), will be maintained (the email address will be saved) until such time as the addition is removed from the website.
2) Entering one of the occassional writing contests requires the provision of the contestant's true name and an email address. The true name is required so that copyright can be legally stated. The email address is required so that the contestant may be contacted during or at the end of the contest. Email addresses of all winners will be stored for the sole purpose of future contact (eg if the site moves, or if copyright laws are changed, etc). These email addresses will not be shared with a third party for any reason other than required by law enforcement officials (as in possible cases of copyright infringement complaints).
3) A physical address may be requested for the purpose of shipping a prize or other item. An address is never required, but in such cases the prize or product would be forfeited. I can't ship it if I don't have an address. Physical addresses are never stored for any reason, and will never be shared with a third party (except the post office for shipment of course) for any reason other than as required by law enforcement officials. (I honestly can't imagine a reason that would occur.)
This website does possess a statistics generator which collects information such as referring urls or the number of visitors. It has been used to locate websites which have hot linked to my images, but no personally identifiable information is available from these statistics.
