Privacy Policy

Update to Privacy Policy

First of all, thank you for trusting us with your personal information. We are working really hard to continue to earn your trust, and that’s why we want to tell you about some new changes to our Privacy Policy in preparation for the EU's General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR). We’re taking this opportunity to make improvements to all of our members so these changes will apply to everyone, no matter where you're located.

Here are the highlights of what’s new but we encourage you to review full version of Privacy Policy:

          -  We are not changing the ways that we use and share your information - 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.

          -  We're giving you 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, fighting abuse on the system, and developing new features for you.

          - Finally, we want to make our online forum community a safer and better place for you to connect with members you like and find what you're looking for.

These changes will become effective May 25th, 2018 for all users. We are looking forward to keep on being a part of your life. If you have any questions about our privacy policy, please reach out to our friendly support team.

Thanks for being a Fat-Forums.com member.
