If you only view the NonFictionVideos website, no more information is collected than is typically collected in server logs by web sites in general.
If you contribute to the NonFictionVideos project, you are publishing every video you submit.
When you publish a video, you may be logged in or not.
If you are logged in, you will be identified by your user name. This may be your real name if you so choose, or you may choose to publish under a pseudonym, whatever user name you selected when you created your account.
If you have not logged in, you will be identified by your network IP address. This is a series of four numbers which identifies the Internet address from which you are contacting the site. Depending on your connection, this number may be traceable only to a large Internet service provider, or specifically to your school, place of business, or home.
It may be either difficult or easy for a motivated individual to connect your network IP address with your real-life identity. Therefore if you are very concerned about privacy, you may wish to log in and publish under a pseudonym.
When using a pseudonym, your IP address will not be available to the public except in cases of abuse. In all cases, your IP address will be stored on the servers and can be seen by NonFictionVideos's server administrators and by users who have been granted specific access. Your IP address, and its connection to any usernames that share it may be released under certain circumstances (see below).
If you use a company mail server from home or telecommute and use a DSL or cable Internet connection, it is likely to be very easy for your employer to identify your IP address and find all of your IP based NonFictionVideos project contributions. Using a user name is a better way of preserving your privacy in this situation. However, remember to log out or disconnect yourself after each session using a pseudonym on a shared computer, to avoid allowing others to use your identity.
The site will set a temporary session cookie (PHPSESSID) whenever you visit the site. If you do not intend to ever log in, you may deny this cookie, but you cannot log in without it.
More cookies may be set when you log in, to avoid typing in your user name (or optionally password) on your next visit. These last up to 30 days. You may clear these cookies after use if you are using a public machine and don't wish to expose your username to future users of the machine. (If so, clear the browser cache as well.)
Many aspects of the NonFictionVideos projects' community interactions depend on the reputation and respect that is built up through a history of valued contributions. User passwords are the only guarantee of the integrity of a user's edit history. All users are encouraged to select strong passwords and to never share them. No one shall knowingly expose the password of another user to public release either directly or indirectly.
It is the policy of NonFictionVideos that personally identifiable data collected in the server logs, or through records in the database, may be released by the system administrators, in the following situations:
NonFictionVideos policy does not permit public distribution of such information under any circumstances, except as described above.
NonFictionVideos will not sell or share private information, such as email addresses, with third parties, unless you agree to release this information, or it is required by law to release the information.
NonFictionVideos makes no guarantee against unauthorized access to any information you provide. This information may be available to anyone with access to the servers.
You may provide your e-mail address in your Preferences and enable other logged-in users to send email to you through the site. Your address will not be revealed to them unless you respond, or possibly if the email bounces. The email address may be used by the NonFictionVideos team to communicate with users on a wider scale.
If you do not provide an email address, you will not be able to reset your password if you forget it. However, you may contact one of the NonFictionVideos server administrators to enter a new mail address in your preferences.
You can remove your email address from your preferences at any time to prevent it being used.
If you subscribe to one of the project mailing lists, your address may be exposed to any other subscriber, but only in the event of an error.
