This website:
  • stores temporary cookies that are removed when you close the browser window, such as a user session identifier;
  • stores cookies to remember font size and other aesthetic and accessibility configuration options;
  • stores cookies for improving the usability of engaging aspects such as the chatroom or forum (in particular, auto-saving of partially-typed posts);
  • stores other kinds of cookie that are mentioned before they are set;
  • logs basic information pertaining to your computer including your IP address, web browser name, and operating system;
  • stores other information that you explicitly enter, such as your account information, or forum posts;
  • stores a list of content you've viewed for the sole purpose of showing "Watched" indicators while logged in;
  • sends analytics data to a NOTS-hosted Matomo analytics server via client-side (e.g. JavaScript) and/or server-side methods, which may include your username if you're logged in;
  • shows you as online to other members (including your username, if you're logged in) and publicly displays the date and time that you last visited (if you're logged in).

If you wish to see what exact cookies are saved, or delete cookies, you may do so using standard tools built into your web browser.

We may occasionally send bulk e-mails about Nerd on the Street, or matters relating to our content, to our members. These bulk e-mails can be opted out of on your profile page. We will not send bulk e-mails (or allow others to send bulk e-mails) which we believe would be considered spam.

We will not share private details other than what can be seen in the forum profile and public postings unless legally required to do so.

The staff reserve the right to read any Private Topics and posts placed on this website. Any form of conversation made through this website should be considered viewable by staff. All private-posts and posts, whether 'deleted' or not, are stored on the server and may be reviewed if we feel we have cause for an investigation. If you do want to keep something private, do not use our services for transmitting it. Situations involving investigations can be anything at our discretion (for example, to investigate specific incidents of our services being used for harassment).
