Your privacy is genuinely important to us. Here's how we manage and use your data.
about this policy
pixslate is an open platform that allows you to communicate about anything you want on any topic you want. We collect some information in order for you to have an account you can use to participate on the site, and other information that is necessary to make the service work. Our goal in developing our privacy practices is to allow your participation to remain as anonymous as you choose, and we don’t sell or profit from the information you share with us.
When you create an account, you are required to provide a username and password, and may opt to provide an email address. We also log, and retain indefinitely, the IP address from which the account is initially created.
post, comment and messaging data
The posts and comments you make on pixslate are not private, even if made to a subpixel not readily accessible to the public. This means that, by default, they are not deleted from our servers – ever – and will still be accessible after your account is deleted. However, we only save the most recent version of comments and posts, so your previous edits, once overwritten, are no longer available.
Your messages are generally only viewable by the parties involved, but they may be accessed internally as needed for community support. Moreover, we keep a complete log of all messages sent on our service, even when both parties later delete their accounts.
Log data is certain information that is automatically collected by our systems when you visit pixslate, including the type of software used to access the site (browser, operating system), the type of device you are using, the address of the external or internal page that referred you, and your IP address. This information is recorded for all visitors and is only linked to your account if you are signed in.
We collect information about how all visitors browse the site to make pixslate better. We remove personally identifiable data from this information after 90 days.
other information related to your account
When you are logged into your pixslate account, we save the following information about your preferences and your interactions with the site to allow you to customize your experience: subscriptions, preferred language, all languages you see content in, accumulated karma, voting data, and date of last login. You may also opt to add "flair" to decorate your profile, and this will be stored as well.
how we use or disclose collected information
our use of your information is limited to improving your experience
It takes a lot of work to keep our site running and prevent abuse, and we sometimes use your data in order to facilitate this. Your information is used internally only where necessary to provide our services. For instance, we keep IP addresses in order to investigate issues with our site, track and block suspected spammers, and otherwise maintain the integrity of the community.
your private information is never for sale
This means that we will only share your personal data with your consent, and after letting you know what information will be shared and with whom, unless it is otherwise permitted in this policy. While advertisers may target their ads to the topic of a given subpixel or based on your IP address, we do not sell or otherwise give access to any information collected about our users to any third party.
Anonymous, aggregated information that cannot be linked back to an individual user may be made available to third parties.
pixslate will not disclose your information unless required by law
We may disclose – or preserve for future disclosure – your information if we believe, after due consideration, that doing so is reasonably necessary to comply with a law, regulation, or valid legal process. If we are going to release your information, we will do our best to provide you with notice in advance via pixslate's private messaging system unless we are prohibited by court order from doing so (e.g., an order under 18 U.S.C. § 2705(b)). We reserve the right to delay notice to users in cases involving the exploitation of minors and when we believe a delay is necessary to prevent imminent and serious bodily harm to a person.
your information may be disclosed by us in an emergency or to keep our services running
We may disclose your information in certain emergency circumstances: we may also disclose your information when we believe it's necessary to prevent imminent and serious bodily harm to a person; to address fraud, security, or spam; or to protect our rights or property.
technologies we use
Cookies are small data files placed on your computer by websites you visit in order to help them remember certain information about you. At pixslate, we set only a few cookies for tracking user preferences, authentication, and collecting anonymous analytics data. Additionally, our advertising partners set cookies. We also use pixel trackers, which are images embedded in a webpage, for the purpose of measuring and analyzing usage and activity. Each of these uses is described in greater detail below.
california's'do not track' law
pixslate's website does not currently respond to a Do Not Track ("DNT") or similar signal as it awaits the results of efforts by the policy and legal community to determine the meaning of DNT and the proper way to respond. pixslate does not allow other parties to collect personally identifiable information from users on pixslate.
If you are logged out, pixslate will place a simple cookie to remember if you indicate you would like to view over 18 content, or if you set a language preference.
pixslate will place a simple cookie to remember your channel choices, which includes the subpixels you choose as channels and how they are arranged, and your playback preferences including vote sort, autoplay, shuffle, NSFW/SFW, and whether annotations will be visible.
When you log into your account, pixslate will place a cookie for the sole purpose of creating this session. It contains your user id and hashed authentication information.
We use a tool called Google Analytics to help us understand how users interact with our website. It tells us aggregate usage and traffic information, such as how the site was accessed, how long visitors stayed, and the number of first-time visitors to the site. To learn more about Google Analytics and how it uses your data, please visit http://www.google.com/analytics/learn/privacy.html.
We also place our own session cookie, which contains the date the cookie was set and a unique identifier. This data is anonymized, never associated with your pixslate account (whether you are logged-in or not), and follows the requirements laid out in the What Information We Collect section of this policy. By knowing how people use the site, we can make it better.
We use small image files called web pixels to collect activity information to help understand how people use the service so we can make it better. We use this information internally only, and we remove information that could be used to identify an individual user after 90 days. We only link this information to your pixslate account when you are signed in.
Most browsers include an option to clear existing cookies or reject new ones. However, if you do this, portions of the pixslate website may not function as intended.
content delivery cookie
The company that delivers the pixslate website to your computer, CloudFlare, may place a cookie on your computer as part of the service it provides, which includes monitoring visitors’ IP addresses to track malicious actors. Further information regarding this cookie can be found in CloudFlare's Security Policy.
You may choose to delete your pixslate account at any time. The usernames associated with deleted accounts remain unavailable for others to use, and your public profile is no longer visible to pixslate users. However, the posts and content you made during your tenure as a pixslate user will not be automatically deleted as part of the account removal process, though your username will be publicly disassociated with all posts. Also, we do not have control over third parties that may collect and store data independently from pixslate without our permission and without following our rules.
third party sites
Certain third party sites may offer users the option to log in using their pixslate id. This option is only an authentication tool and does not transmit any new personal information to or from pixslate, or give pixslate access to details of subsequent actions taken on these sites.
When you contact pixslate support or subscribe to one of our email newsletters, pixslate may use a third party service to send you email messages. All of our email communications are opt-in only. If you do opt into one of our subscription emails, only your email address will be stored with the third party service. We will always make it easy to opt out of our subscription emails, for example, by including a 1-click unsubscribe link.
pixslate will make every effort to secure any private information submitted to us by our users. We also maintain internal security practices designed to keep your data secure and private. As part of this, we limit employee access to user data. However, no data transmission over the internet is completely secure, so we cannot guarantee the absolute security of this data. You use the service at your own risk, and are responsible for taking reasonable measures to secure your account (such as carefully maintaining the secrecy of your password).
pixslate is a United States based company whose servers are housed in the United States. All personal information we collect from our international users is transferred to the United States and processed according to US law.

children under 13
Although we welcome users from all walks of life, pixslate is not aimed at children, and the United States government has put limits on our ability to accept users under a certain age through the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998. Individuals under the age of 13 may not create an account with us. If you believe someone 12 or younger is using our site without parental consent, please contact us.
pixslate is committed to your privacy. If you believe that someone has submitted, without your permission, to pixslate a link to a photograph, video, or digital image of you in a state of nudity or engaged in any act of sexual conduct, please contact us (firstname.lastname@example.org), and we will expedite its removal as quickly as possible. pixslate prohibits the posting of such content without consent.
user information we collect
activity and device information
Our apps collect certain information about your device, including its IP address, device type, and its current operating system. This information is used for analytics and to improve the pixslate service; for example, we use device and OS information to track and fix bugs. It is also used to provide advertising as described below. All stored IP addresses, except the account creation IP address, are deleted after 90 days. We only associate this information with your account when you are signed in.
To understand who clicks our mobile ads and to avoid showing you the same ad over and over again, we share your device's unique advertising identifier, its IP address, and a list of subpixels used to generate a particular page for you (which may include your subscriptions) with our ad partners, who decide which ads to display for you.
We do not associate your device’s unique advertising identifier with your user account, even if you are signed in on an app.
While we have very high standards for the types of ads we show, we also want to make it easy for you to opt out of sending your device's unique advertising identifier to us.
how pixslate uses and discloses app information
your app options
If you enable app notifications, you can choose to receive timely updates about things like new private messages, interactions with your comments, and more.
Deleting an app
If you delete a pixslate app from your mobile device, any app-specific information stored on your device will be deleted from your device. If you have backed up your device’s apps, pixslate app information may continue to exist where you have backed it up. Any information collected by a pixslate app while you are signed in to your pixslate account is retained as described in theWhat Information We Collect section of this policy.
A pixslate app may also allow you to post to social media, including Facebook or Twitter, but pixslate will not connect to the servers of those services, share information with those services, or post on your behalf. We want to make it easier for you to share your favorite pixslate content elsewhere, but we want you to control when and how that occurs.
