Description of service

Three Rings hosts YPPedia. YPPedia's content is made freely accessible for informational or entertainment purposes to anyone with a connection to the World Wide Web.

YPPedia content

Three Rings is the hosting provider, and takes no responsibility for the content uploaded by third parties. YPPedia's Administrators will act to remove copyright violations in a timely manner following the receipt of a DMCA takedown request.

Three Rings' YPPedia is provided "as is". Three Rings has no responsibility for lack of availability of any wiki or of any particular content. You should be aware that the wikis are editable by the public, and, as such, may contain inappropriate content at any time.

Any use you make of content hosted by YPPedia must be in line with the terms of that wiki's license. YPPedia is available under the Creative Commons Attribution license (CC BY).

Any content you upload or post to YPPedia must be compatible with the CC BY license, not violate another person's intellectual property or infringe on any copyright, patent, trademark, trade secret, or other proprietary rights.

Collection of personal information

User information is stored on servers in the United States. The only information that you need give is a username and password. The username does not need to be your real name. Therefore, any personal information you choose to give is not compulsory. No personal information should be given on the wiki by persons aged less than 13 years.

If you choose to enter a real name in your preferences, this will be publicly available. However, this field is optional, and there is no requirement for any user to give a real name. Users under 13 should not give their real name.

Information from our server logs may be stored and used to gather aggregate data about users, and used to determine whether the identity of one or more users is the same in cases of abuse. This data includes your IP address, and details about your browser.

Your browser must permit cookies to be set (by *.puzzlepirates.com) in order for you to log in to YPPedia. If you do not make an account on YPPedia, there is no necessity to accept cookie requests from this site.

Edits by users who are not logged in will show the user's IP address in the page history of the article they edited, and also in other places on the site, including watchlists and recent changes, and in any external feeds made of such pages.
