We have kids. We love kids. Really we do. But the United States government has put limits on our ability to accept users under a certain age through the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998. So to be clear, Chilluminati is not intended for users under the age of 13. Nobody under 13 may create an account or use any part of the Site that requires the submission of personally identifiable information, like email or name. Any account that is created by a person under 13 will be terminated and any content created will be removed from the Site.
CHANGES TO THIS POLICY
What is a cookie?
Cookies are small data files that websites store in your hard drive. They create a unique id that is associated with your browser. We use first-party cookies for analytics, which tell us about user activity on our site. We may use third-party cookies to collect information about your habits across multiple sites and to provide advertising that is targeted to your interests. Our third-party advertising partners also use third-party cookies. More information about each is provided below. At this time, we have not implemented and have no plans to implement advertising. We are completely setup to monetize this website using advertising, but we are choosing not to.
1. Google Analytics
We host our DNS on Cloudflare servers to understand how our visitors interact with our site. Our reports aggregate user activity anonymously and do not identify you individually. We primarily use this service to thwart attacks on our own servers, reduce spam, and to eliminate bad traffic.
3. Social Media Widgets
We display sharing buttons so you can use social networking to share items from our site.
4. Google FeedBurner for RSS
5. Affiliate Programs
Not technically an analytics cookie, but you should know that we present links in a format that enables us to track when links are followed. Specifically, when you make a purchase on other websites after clicking one of their links on our site, we collect a small portion of the sale from them as part of their affiliate programs. You are not identifiable to us personally and we only see aggregated, anonymized statistics on what was purchased.
CleanTalk is a SaaS spam protection service for websites and we proudly use it on ours. CleanTalk uses protection methods which are invisible to site visitors. Connecting to the service eliminates needs for CAPTCHA, questions and answers, and other methods of protection that complicate the exchange of information on the site.
CleanTalk cloud service provides automatic and invisible protection against spam. CleanTalk analyzes user behavior and evaluates the parameters of a completed form. This program captures the behaviour parameters of the visitor or spam bot. These parameters are assessed and the service makes a decision – to post a message or to define it as spam and reject. On the basis of such checks, the service forms its own list of email addresses used by spam bots. Likewise, visitor registrations are checked. The service adds not only email addresses to the blacklist, but also IP addresses and domains of the websites that are promoted through spam mailout.
For some weird reason, we are a high target for spam traffic. Through CloudFlare and CleanTalk, we have blocked millions of unwanted visitors from wreaking havoc in our house.
