Other than standard server diagnostic information, no information is kept or recorded from simply viewing the Balderdash pages.
If you submit any email to Kimberly Chapman as part of a request to join the Balderdash game or as a question to any part of the game, your email may be kept for future reference.
If you join the Balderdash game, you must submit your first name or nickname, and if there is another player with the same name, you must submit an initial. If an initial is required, it can be your middle initial, last initial, or a false one of your choice, but it must differ from the other shared-name player(s)' initial, with first choice given to the player with seniority in the game. Whole names are not required, although players may use a full name instead of choosing an initial, if required.
Any name given for Balderdash is given with the consent that it may be displayed as part of the Balderdash game within email, on the archived results pages, on the records page, and in alt.pub.kacees, as applicable. No last names, player email addresses or player website URLs will be displayed on these pages without a separate email being obtained giving written consent to do so.
All name submissions, including nicknames, are subject to approval by Kimberly Chapman. Nicknames that are unwieldy, obscene, or otherwise deemed inappropriate by Kimberly Chapman will be rejected, and another nickname or a first name must be supplied before you can join the game.
Because some players cannot respond to CC'd messages or BCC'd messages, and because this is supposed to be an open, friendly game, all Balderdash rounds are run with player email addresses in the To: line of the email. This means other players will be able to see your email address and respond to it. If you have submitted a last name to Kimberly Chapman at all and are thus listed in her Eudora address book by that name, that whole name may appear along with your email address.
When you submit answers to the game, you are agreeing to have those answers displayed to other players in the round for the purposes of voting, and to have those answers displayed on this website if they should match or beat an existing record. You agree to relinquish all claims of privacy and/or other rights to that text when you submit it to the game. This includes guesses at movie plots; you are relinquishing all claims against your created plot guess.
Thus, in joining the game, you are agreeing to the following privacy-related terms:
No information collected for this game will ever be traded, lent, or sold to a third party for any reason other than those required by subpoenas, court orders or legal process.
Players will only be allowed to change their information under the following circumstances:
Spontaneous name or nickname changes without reason will not be allowed, in order to preserve the integrity of the records. All name changes besides those listed above will be made at the sole discretion of Kimberly Chapman.
No player will be allowed to have their archived information changed or deleted except by reason of subpoenas, court orders or legal process. A poor score is not grounds for having your information deleted from the archives, nor is leaving the game.
This site is 100% cookie free!
Kimberly Chapman reserves the right to change this policy without notice, although significant changes may require players to reaffirm their agreement with it in order to continue playing.
