Disclosure policy: Who we share your data with
MyModernDragon.com is owned and operated by EatOrToss LLC, via its resident dragon. This project is a labor of love, but everyone has to eat (especially hungry dragons), so MyModernDragon.com accepts forms of cash advertising, sponsorship, paid insertions or other forms of compensation.
But any such compensation will never influence the content, topics or posts made on this site.
All advertising is in the form of advertisements generated by a third party ad network. Those advertisements are identifiable as paid advertisements as they are in self-contained boxes, offset from the site’s main content.
Affiliate discretion and other provisions
We are not compensated to provide opinions on products, services, websites or various other topics. The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely our own. If we claim or appear to be experts on a certain topic or product or service area, we will only endorse products or services that we believe, based on our expertise and research, are worthy of such endorsement.
When we link to products or services, it is possible that these links could be affiliate links. That means that if a person buys something from one of our affiliate links, the seller may give us (not you) a small amount of money that does not come from you.
For instance, say you click the link to the page that sells a dragon book on Amazon.com. If you buy the item within 24 hours, we may receive a commission of between one and ten percent.
Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer or provider. Do not rely on MyModernDragon.com for medical, legal, or any sort of professional advice, as MyModernDragon.com is for informational, educational, and entertainment purposes only.
MyModernDragon.com does not contain any content which might present a conflict of interest. If you think there’s something we should be concerned about, let us know.
If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can have the option to 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.
