What personal data we collect and why we collect it
Inheritance Gambit requires an email from all Players. First and foremost that is how we communicate with our players using the Tickets system Inheritance Gambit uses instead of the +jobs system found on most MUSHes. It also allows Staff to connect Player alts together. Staff doesn’t care if you create an email just for use with this game, so long as you check it and it’s consistent across all of your characters.
All Player’s IPs are recorded by the MU* server. Staff does not at any time request any personal information beyond this such as your name, address, occupation, etc. etc. Any personal real-life information is done voluntarily by the Player and at their own risk. A common instance of this might be timezone, to help coordinate RP hours. All players are responsible for the protection of their own personal information.
Staff will never give out a Player’s email or IP information to any third parties except as required by law.
Keep in mind that a MU* is not a secure environment. Even if you appear to be alone in a room, some exits are coded to relay anything said/posed to another room. Objects in a room may be “recording” such as loggers. In all cases, Staff will attempt to notify the Playerbase be it a note on the object, or the room, or a game-wide post if such objects are being used.
Staff has tried to make it impossible for such things as Staff-bits being Dark (invisible) in a room, or allowing objects to secretly record actions in a room, but accidents happen and loopholes are found.
