The personal information NightLight may collect and how it's used

Preface: I'm not a solicitor, NightLight is a hobby project I've built out of a passion for Dead by Daylight and programming. I've aimed to provide the clearest idea of what NightLight might do with the personal information you provide but I'm not a legal professional. I aim to have as little to do with personal information as possible but some is necessary to provide and sustain the project.

Last Updated: Friday 3rd May 2024

1. Information related to logging in

When registering for a NightLight account you need to provide a Username, Email Address, and Password or you can Sign up with Discord.

The email address you provide is used to allow you to log in. It may also be used to send you notifications relating to the site, to ask for your feedback (or input to assist with your use of the project), or to inform you of new features and enhancements to the NightLight project.

The username you provide may be shown publicly through features like Profiles, the Build Challenge Leaderboard, or the Supporter thank you box. I try to provide ways to opt out of/disable these features.

If you register with Discord (or link your account), the email address, username, and ID associated with your Discord account will be shared with and stored by NightLight. These are used to allow you to log in, and to provide you with roles and functionality in the NightLight Discord and via the NightLight Discord bots.
