    Default Your data and HabboxForum

    You've probably received a thousand emails on this topic in the previous days and weeks as GDPR, a new data protection law coming into force in the EU from tomorrow.

    We are, as always, totally committed to our users' safety and privacy and I would like to personally assure you this will never change! I personally have a background in digital marketing and have been trained in data protection law and ensure all administrators also know the do's and don'ts before they are trusted with access.

    We use a range of services to help us improve our sites; including the three main website software (vBulletin 4, MediaWiki and Wordpress), but also various additional software such as Google AdWords, analytics, additional plugins and features such as social media, all of which help us improve the websites for you. This information is collected via your profiles as you register (which you can edit at any time by visiting your settings page) and via cookies.

    See our new information statement below:

    Your information

    Habbox is committed to our users' safety and privacy.

    We do collect some personal information when you sign up to and browse our website(s) and use cookies to make the website(s) work better for you. The information we collect might include your name, email address, IP and information regarding what pages or content you might be accessing. This information is of the utmost privacy and can only be access by trusted administrators of HabboxForum.

    We also use third-party services including (but not limited to) AdWords, Google Analytics, vBulletin and Wordpress-approved plugins and social media platforms (including Facebook, Twitter and others) which may set cookies on this site. We will never sell your information on to third parties.

    Opting out

    Please consult the documentation for your web browser or mobile device for options on how to control which cookies you allow. You can disable Google Analytics tracking on your browser by following the instructions on the Google site.

    You can customise the information you share with HabboxForum, including whether you would like to receive emails from administrators or members by clicking here to visit your settings page.

    Under the new rule, users now have a "right to be forgotten" so the following rule has now been removed:

    Removed this rule: We will not delete user accounts, user threads, posts or otherwise submitted content to our web site.
    Please note that forum posts and threads do not constitute personal information and are not covered under this law. We will however make every attempt to anonymise account information.

    Personal data definition from the ICO >

    The GDPR applies to ‘personal data’ meaning any information relating to an identifiable person who can be directly or indirectly identified in particular by reference to an identifier.

    This definition provides for a wide range of personal identifiers to constitute personal data, including name, identification number, location data or online identifier, reflecting changes in technology and the way organisations collect information about people.
    Please contact me if you have any comments or questions via PM or Skype
