Who we are

Welcome to The Thousand Year War (TTYW) knowledge distribution nexus (“site”) for S. L. Field, the western hemisphere, Earth, coordinator for excerpts and commentaries on Nils Ziortza’s classic The Thousand Years War: Stories of the Corps. You will also find the new stories which the Thousand Years War committee at Bonneville University, Proxima Centauri Two (PC2), has researched and produced.

Comments

When visitors leave comments on this site, I collect the data shown in the comments form, plus the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection. I’m sure you can all appreciate the issues the enemy continues to raise with any dissemination of the stories of their malign influence on humanity. My virtual assistants then share this information with CleanTalk, a program which verifies you are not on the side of evil. They only store the information in their arrays for a few days to allow me to come to your defense if you’re a human.

An anonymized string created from your access address (also called a “hash”) may be provided to Gravatar to see if you are using it. You may review Gravatar’s privacy policy here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. Should I approve your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Cookies

Upon leaving a comment on this site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in “cookies” (a term dating from the Pre-expansion era which summarizes a variety of user identification and tracking programs). These are for your convenience, so you will not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. Scholars working in the field of TTYW studies will particularly benefit from these “cookies,” which will last for one standard (Earth) year.

If you visit the login page, our virtual support will set a temporary “cookie” to determine if your browser accepts such things. It will preserve no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several such “cookies” to save your login information and your screen display choices. These will last for two Earth days (48 standard hours), though your display options will last for a standard year. If you select “Remember Me” (which we advise for our visiting scholars) your login will persist for two weeks (14 standard days). If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor had visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website—although, given that we are physically located in Sol System, you will likely preserve the privacy protections legislated by most Core Systems—ergo, not as fanatical as PC2, but reasonably robust.

Who I share your data with

I value your privacy (and Sol System legislates it!) so this site won’t share your data other than as necessary with CleanTalk and Wordfence – my security companies. If you sign up for my newsletter, I will store your data on this site and only use your information as needed to send you the periodic updates you are hoping to receive!

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so that I can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

What rights you have over your data

If you leave comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data the site has about you, including any data you have provided. You can also request that I erase any personal data I have. I hope you will not do this often since it is not automatic here, as it would be on PC2. This does not include any data I am obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where your data is sent

Visitor comments will be checked through an automated spam detection service, CleanTalk, and also by security software Wordfence.
