By now, you've probably been inundated with emails from sites updating their privacy policy and terms of use, so lets get down to business.

On the 25th May 2018, EU's General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) will be coming into effect. Although these changes are spurred by European law, we are strong believers that every users privacy is important, and have done a complete review of our system to ensure the continued privacy and security of all our users personal data.

Here is a quick summary of the changes we've made to our Privacy Policy and Terms of Use which will come into effect on the 25th May 2018:

  • We have always allowed our users to request a complete deletion of their account, by following the instructions provided in our Privacy Policy. We shall soon open up this tool to automate the process for our users that want their account deleted.
  • We shall also add a tool which allows our users to request a copy of data we have stored on you to review, and for data portability purposes.
  • We aim to collect the minimum amount of personal data required, to operate the mod API. We don't sell this data or track you outside of the mod API. This won't be changing, instead, we're being more specific on how we use the information we collect, how long we keep that data, and the rights you have regarding it.
  • Finally, we're providing more clarity around the legal bases we use to process your information, including providing the service to you, complying with the law, improving our services, and providing a safe and welcoming environment for everyone.

We encourage you to review our updated Privacy Policy and Terms of Use. It takes effect May 25th, 2018. By using mod.io on or after that date, you'll be agreeing to the changes. If you have questions about these changes, feel free to reach out to us at legal@mod.io.
