Privacy Policy

We could not care less about your personal data.

We don’t ask for personal data beyond a crypto address to send coins to. Your activity on the site is tracked because if it was not we wouldn’t know if you had completed a faucet claim or not. In fact, each page view would be unique as far as the server is concerned, because http doesn’t offer any way to save the state from one page to the next.

We could make all kinds of high-falutin’ statements about how much we “care” about your privacy, but that’s just words. 

Cookies and scripts are used to track your actions. The main thing that people object to is the use of tracking tech to collate loads of data about users across multiple sites, an Orwellian-style data fest that many large corporations indulge in. Strangely, the ‘solution’ imposed by the EUSSR is to force all the small sites to do loads of work to comply with their dictates.

Governments and other big corporations “care” about your data in the same way that farmers care about their stock. We don’t “care” about your data at all; we just provide a means for you to enter personal data in order to use the site. Beyond that, it’s of no concern to us. 

Having said that, there are creeps out there who do care about it. The government ones, well, we can’t do much about them, but in order to protect our own site, we install protection software. We do all we can to protect the site, and your data, by extension, benefit from this protection.

We use tracking to see what you do on the site. It’s not because we care what you do, but we do care what botters and snoops do, and want to be able to distinguish them from genuine users. Third parties host most of the images and videos on the site for ‘free’. The price is that they can also track you. This will not change until consciousness has changed, and people value privacy over cost and ‘ease of use’.

We use other methods to increase the security of the site, for example, strong hashing on passwords so that a hacked passwd file is harder to crack. But no system is 100% secure, so a wise person will prefer to learn about security instead of leaving it to others. 

If you want security and privacy, it’s no use trying to get site owners to provide it, nor is there any point in asking governments (the biggest privacy invaders on the planet) to somehow ‘force’ everyone. The best way is to take the time to learn enough about the technology so that you can protect yourself. The following links can help you to start that process.

amiunique.org  is ostensibly just a tool to see how easy it is to track you across multiple sites, but it’s also a great way to learn how this tracking is done. Sites like facebook have hooks in almost every site on the web (not this one, though google does!).

a-ads is the only ad network we are aware of that respects privacy and doesn’t track users. If you care about privacy, please read our review and spend a few satoshi there to advertise something, even some of your reflinks, you’d be surprised how well that works. If we don’t support good stuff, the bad stuff wins.

Your email address has probably been hacked on at least one site, and the password published on numerous shady sites for all to see. There’s an online tool you can use to check this, called haveibeenpwned. Here is our review of it, and some things you can do to reduce the risks.
