Rapid Chronicles also logs other information including IP address and browser type from both registered Users and anonymous visitors. This data is used for technical purposes of running the Services, monitor and analyze trends and improve the Services and for security and monitoring purposes.

User email addresses are never displayed publicly nor revealed to other Users unless a User puts it directly on the pages or another User is in your contact list. However to make finding Users easier we allow searching by email address where one can look up a User whose email address matches the queried one.
Your email address is only revealed to the Users in your contact list. You shall be warned about it at the moment you add a User to your contact list.
Email address may be used to send email notifications or other important Services information or updates and to notify User about events related to particular user account. The User can decide not to receive any emailed information from the Services by configuring the Account Settings.
Email addresses or any other personal information are not shared with any third party, rent or sold.
User accounts are protected by user-created passwords.
Wherever required we use security measures to avoid plain-text transport of personal information between the browser and our database. In particular the login form data (username + password), all registration data, password-recovery forms and a few other that involve personal data use secure transport.
The data stored on our database servers is kept with a reasonable protection against unauthorized access and accessible only by minimal number of employees. We however can not guarantee protection against unauthorized use, hardware or software failure and other factors that may compromise the security of User information that is beyond our control.
In particular we also take no responsibility for unauthorized access that results from Users sharing their password with others or not taking sufficient security measures when using public computers.
On some parts of the site anonymous users are allowed to post content and/or participate in discussions. In such a case, since no user name can be associated with such a user, the IP address number of a user is used as an identifier.
When posting content or messages on our site anonymously, part of your IP address will be revealed to the public.
(However we do limit the ability of Anonymous Users)
