California Online Privacy Protection Act

CalOPPA is the first state law in the nation to require commercial websites and online services to post a privacy policy. The law's reach stretches well beyond California to require a person or company in the United States (and conceivably the world) that operates websites collecting personally identifiable information from California consumers to post a conspicuous privacy policy on its website stating exactly the information being collected and those individuals with whom it is being shared, and to comply with this policy. - See more at: http://consumercal.org/california-online-privacy-protection-act-caloppa/#sthash.0FdRbT51.dpuf

According to CalOPPA we agree to the following:
Users can visit our site anonymously
Once this privacy policy is created, we will add a link to it on our home page, or as a minimum on the first significant page after entering our website.
Our Privacy Policy link includes the word 'Privacy', and can be easily be found on the page specified above.

It's also important to note that we allow third party behavioral tracking

COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act)

When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under 13, the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission, the nation's consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children's privacy and safety online.

We do not specifically market to children under 13.

Fair Information Practices

The Fair Information Practices Principles form the backbone of privacy law in the United States and the concepts they include have played a significant role in the development of data protection laws around the globe. Understanding the Fair Information Practice Principles and how they should be implemented is critical to comply with the various privacy laws that protect personal information.

In order to be in line with Fair Information Practices we will take the following responsive action, should a data breach occur:
We will notify the users via email
      Within 1 business day

We also agree to the individual redress principle, which requires that individuals have a right to pursue legally enforceable rights against data collectors and processors who fail to adhere to the law. This principle requires not only that individuals have enforceable rights against data users, but also that individuals have recourse to courts or a government agency to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.

CAN SPAM Act

The CAN-SPAM Act is a law that sets the rules for commercial email, establishes requirements for commercial messages, gives recipients the right to have emails stopped from being sent to them, and spells out tough penalties for violations.

We collect your email address in order to:
      Send information, respond to inquiries, and/or other requests or questions.

To be in accordance with CANSPAM we agree to the following:
      NOT use false, or misleading subjects or email addresses
      Identify the message as an advertisement in some reasonable way
      Include the physical address of our business or site headquarters
      Monitor third party email marketing services for compliance, if one is used.

purifyweirdshard: As an organization in Iga's games, they've generally been more on the fictional side than historical Jun 28, 2020 0:28:04 GMT -6

dareka: It's a bit more complicated than that. The church comes off as fictional in pretty much all Japanese games because there's nothing like it over there, so they don't really understand what it is. Their closest reference is 20th Century Imperial Japan. Jun 28, 2020 3:46:27 GMT -6

purifyweirdshard: Yeah, Iga told me as much in person (about how they don't really understand it etc). It's almost like an interesting mythological thing/hook for character designs and plots. Jun 28, 2020 16:02:11 GMT -6

OwloftheNight98: I wouldn't mind such a thread. I, in particular, want to see a religious protagonist- who doesn't lose faith due to disillusionment or "God was evil all along!"- in a fantastical game setting, to see how would they handle the crazy stuff like this. Jun 28, 2020 20:57:33 GMT -6 *

RichterB: While far from perfect, the CV franchise has been pretty decent w/ its idea of embattled Christian holy warrior versus evil personified. It's different from a lot of games in that regard. I realized over the years that's been part of its appeal to me. Jun 29, 2020 0:14:12 GMT -6 *

RichterB: Decided to spend a good chunk of time on that fan art I mentioned. Getting close to the coloring phase. As I was composing it, Gebel and Gremory decided to join Miriam and Goofball...and then a Valefar reference snuck itself in when I wasn't looking. _iga Jun 29, 2020 0:18:03 GMT -6 *

RichterB: Question: When I'm done with this thing, do I just post it in the fan art section of the forum, or is there someplace I'm supposed to put it to be considered for a future Kickstarter email? (assuming that is still a thing with dev updates.) Jun 29, 2020 0:40:22 GMT -6
purifyweirdshard Avatar
purifyweirdshard: You can post it in the fanart section here. To be considered for an update is something separate, post it to a social media outlet with the #igavania tag Jun 29, 2020 2:38:56 GMT -6 *

purifyweirdshard: Also, yes, that was a significant part of the appeal to me for Castlevania as well. I've been hoping to see some of it in Bloodstained. That was what my hope in Dominique was all about. Jun 29, 2020 2:40:19 GMT -6 *
RichterB Avatar
RichterB: , Thanks for the info. And sorry about Dominique. But there's always Pure Miriam, I guess? I think maybe the Castlevania animated series sort of misses that thematic beat a little bit. I mean, Sypha's no longer related to the Church at all. Jun 29, 2020 8:36:45 GMT -6 *
