Most of your personal data is stored in our database. This includes your:

Facebook or Google ID (if you use any of these services to log in).
Any additional info you may provide while updating your personal page, writing forum posts and private message, answering surveys and updating your personal inventory.
As is true of most Web sites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, user-agent identifier, referring pages and time stamp. Any request which generates an exception (rare occasion) on CJApedia is saved in a specialized error log and may contain your CJApedia user name. Any request which generates a fatal error (very rare occasion) is additionally sent via email to our development team.
A cookie is a small text file that is stored on a user’s computer for record-keeping purposes. We use both session ID cookies and persistent cookies. We use session cookies to make it easier for you to navigate CJApedia. A session ID cookie expires when you close your browser. A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive for an extended period of time. We set a persistent cookie to make your session last longer, so you don’t have to enter your password too often. You can remove persistent cookies by following directions provided by your Internet browser vendor.
Third party vendors may use their own cookies to deliver ads related to CJApedia, while you are surfing other websites. This is called Behavioral Advertising or Interest-Based Advertising. For example, CJApedia may use a Google service called Remarketing, which delivers CJApedia ads to users around the Google Display Network, based on their activity on CJApedia. You can change your Google ad settings on https://adssettings.google.com. You can opt-out of interest-based ads on http://optout.networkadvertising.org/. We have no access to or control over these cookies. See "Advertisers".
If you reject cookies, you may still use CJApedia, but your ability to use some areas of CJApedia will be limited.
