Who we are
Gamepad.Club is a Mastodon server, part of a growing network of nodes that aim to provide an alternative to centralised and corporate-owned social networks.
Gamepad.club is privately owned and operated by a small team of volunteers on behalf of the community. It is funded by the owner and supported by donations via patreon. It is not intended to be a profit-making enterprise, with all revenue being used to enhance the service.
What information do we collect?
- Basic account Information – your username, password, email address, profile picture and so on.
- Posts, followed accounts, etc. – essentially anything you provide in order to interact with other community members, either on Gamepad.Club or the wider Fediverse
- Direct messages and follower-only posts – it is important to note that these are not encrypted or secure, and could be read by people other than the intended recipient(s). Please do not use Gamepad.Club or Mastodon to share private or sensitive information.
- IP addresses and other metadata – we record these when you log in so that we can maintain a session without regularly needing your password. We also log every request to our servers.
What do we do with this data?
We use this data to provide the service, to support moderation activities, and to send you notifications.
We do not sell your data to any third party or use it for commercial gain.
