Who we are
Zodiac Fleet – The 16th Fleet (“Service” or “We”) collects and uses personal information solely for the purpose of providing an online collaborative writing environment. Our website address is: http://16thfleet.com. Where feasible, We collect personal information only with the knowledge and consent of the individual concerned (“Individual”), and, if the Individual notifies us that they wish to revoke their consent, We will make a best effort to remove all personal information related to the Individual from our Service.
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
“Required Member Information”: When an Individual signs up for the Service (becoming a “Member”), We collect the Member’s name, age, email address, language and timezone.
“Optional Member Information”: We allow a Member, at their discretion, to provide additional contact information, a geographic location, interests and a biography.
“Access Logs”: When an Individual visits the Service, We collect incidental personal information in the Service’s logs including the Individual’s IP address and user agent.
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.
If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.
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 has visited the other website.
Who we share your data with
A Member’s name, email address, timezone and Optional Member Information are shared with other Members of the Service through the Member’s user profile.
A Member’s name, age, email address, timezone and Optional Member Information may also be shared with any applicable parent organization to which the Service belongs.
Access Logs are generally not shared, although they may in rare circumstances be shared with any applicable parent organization to which the Service belongs or the Sector 7 Solutions (“Host”) to diagnose technical problems or when an Individual is reasonably believed to have committed Inappropriate Use of the Service.
The Service or the Host may share personal information with relevant law enforcement authorities as required to comply with applicable laws. The Service will notify the Individual, if permitted by applicable laws, when this occurs.
The Service will not share any personal information with any other parties without the Individual’s consent.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

We are committed to managing the Service in accordance with these principles in order to ensure that the confidentiality of personal information is protected and maintained.
Upon request from an Individual, we will make readily available information about our practices and policies relating to the management of personal data.
