What information does the LearnToMod Team collect about me?
Account Information: In order to build mods or comment on other users’ mods, you need to make an account. During account creation, we ask you for a LearnToMod nickname and your email address (or your parent or guardian’s email address if you are under 13 years old). We ask that you select a nickname that does not disclose your real name or other information that could identify you. Other users can see your LearnToMod nickname, but not your email address.
User-generated Content: All of your LearnToMod creations, comments, and forum posts are stored on the LearnToMod servers. Other users can see your shared creations (including mods, worlds, schematics, and texture packs), comments, and forum posts, along with your LearnToMod nickname. Because the LearnToMod Team is responsible for moderation, we have access to all content stored on the LearnToMod website, including unshared creations.
Usage Information: When you use LearnToMod, our servers will automatically store a limited amount of information about how you use the website. This information includes a number that identifies your computer (the IP address), which pages you visited, which badges you’ve completed, and what browser you are using. In order to connect your LearnToMod account to your LearnToMod private Minecraft server, we also collect your Minecraft username. Other LearnToMod users are not able to see any of this usage information.
Cookies: When you log in, the LearnToMod website asks your browser to put an http “cookie” on your computer. The cookie is actually a small text file that our site can send to your browser for storage on your computer. This allows the website to remember that you are logged in when you go to a different page.

How does the LearnToMod Team protect my information?
The LearnToMod Team has in place physical and electronic procedures to protect the information we collect on the LearnToMod website. We strictly limit individual access to the LearnToMod servers and the data we store on them. However, as effective as these measures are, no security system is impenetrable. We cannot completely guarantee the security of our database, nor can we guarantee that the information you supply will not be intercepted while being transmitted to us over the Internet.
