In a Nutshell:
We’re ImpSpace, a creative community by and for the community brought together because of MediaMolecule and Dreams. In order to be a part of this we can’t wave a magic wand knowing your essential details like what username you want or how to contact you. Secure information for joining and certain community events are private. Information that is public is content that you share publicly, which also applies to social media services, like sharing some cool artwork 🙂
Who we are
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website could download and extract any location data from images on the website. Any media publicly shared with us may be re-shared and used on social media and/or ImpSpace. An example of this is using artwork shared publicly as the sites banner, or in an ImpSpace email.
In order for us to respond to your emails we will need to collect your contact information so we can reach back to you. This can include a name, email address, IP address (helps for spam protection) and any additional information submitted in the contact form field so we can review your message to us.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.
If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website. An example of this is on forums if another user post their song from SoundCloud; in this case interaction or viewing would additionally fall under SoundCloud’s policy.
Since this site is community centered we may have donation/funding implementations to help support and make the community better. Any donation or funding feature can be done via third party with sites like PayPal who will handle that end. For some events we may ask for the contact information of contest winners if a prize is to be given to the user.
Who we share your data with
We may share publicly provide data such as statistics to help our community gain relevant benefits such as discount codes for games, software, etc. These opportunities when persisted may be notified in a few significant email updates or social media post. An example of this would be if the community recently has talked a lot about new hardware or software; we would be able to recommend things to users in a post update.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

How we protect your data
We have security measures in place that protect your data and by encrypting passwords of users who register here.
What data breach procedures we have in place
We protect against malicious login and registration attempts as well as having real-time traffic monitoring to analyze suspicious visitor actions.
What third parties we receive data from
We receive data from 3rd parties such as Discord, YouTube, Twitter, and other social media that can me embedded to share on the site. Social media site may also act as a login method for users.
What automated decision making and/or profiling we do with user data
Being a community based of the creativity of anything, we look for people who we can share their public work or help encourage and inspire other users. These are talented people who others can look up to that we would like to know within this community. This also comes in handy when recommending community user groups.
