note: this privacy document covers pxlsFiddle prior to its shutdown on February 28th, 2022. Any third party services used no longer apply to the site.
Hate to bother you with this, but this is important. It's important for you, it's important for me, and it's important for your cat. Strike that, your cat couldn't care less. Oh, you don't have a cat? Think again. Meow.
I'll try to keep this short and devoid of legalese. Just take a few moments, let this notice sink in, and then choose wisely. Don't worry, I wont bite - I'm not your cat.
In fact, have a tl;dr: no personal information is stored server-side other than access logs, except where explicitly stated otherwise. Cool? Cool.
Third party services used by pxlsFiddle.com
This site uses third party services where explicitly mentioned - it does not use any ads, analytics services, trackers, etc. So what services does it use, why, and how might it affect your privacy?
imgur.com, an image hosting site, is used to upload images that you choose in the template styling section. imgur may receive, among other, your IP address and common browser information (browser name, version, and all that good stuff)
pxls.space, a pixel canvas site that this site is a companion to - but not affiliated with, is used if you choose to get the canvas dimensions and palette. This information is retrieved through a proxy on this site, so this should not send them any information about you.
pxls.space, again, is also used if you use the Avogadro project link. This link opens pxls.space in an iframe. By using its functionality, you send as much information to pxls.space as you would if you visited the pxls.space directly.
fonts.googleapis.com, a vector font repository, is used when you specify a Custom font in the text rendering section when that font is not available on your system. Google may receive, among other, your IP address and common browser information.
⚠️ updated on 2019/02/11 cloudinary.com, a cloud hosting solution specializing in media, is used server-side for uploaded template images. No information about you or your browser is sent to their servers, but your image will be. The image is converted on the cloudinary servers and after conversion is immediately deleted from their servers.
Cookies and Settings Storage
template utility settings and UI states, used to store your preferences for the tempate utility's settings and user interface states. This doesn't include any personal information unless you add it yourself. If you name a layer with your real name, that's on you.
pxls.space account authentication, used to store which pxls.space account belongs to you (or details were given to you - people shouldn't do that). Depending on how you feel about your pxls.space username, you may feel like this is personally identifying.
/progress projects, if submitted, will include your username which will be stored and made public, just so we know who was the fool that corrupted the data so we can point at and make fun of them. If you want this information removed, just send me a message on Discord, and your privileges will be removed and username redacted. /pxlschat chat entries, if submitted and you are authenticated, will include your username which will be stored and made public, just so we know who was the fool that decided to spam the chat with inappropriate content. If you want this information removed, just send me a message on Discord, and your privileges will be removed and username redacted.
As part of its normal mode of operation for security - and I'm sure some asinine data-retention laws the provider adheres to - this site does log access to any and all parts of the site, which means the provider has this information as well. This log information includes your IP address. If you'd rather not have this happen, you should leave. The internet. You should leave the internet. Or at least get a VPN.
This site generally doesn't remember you - information is stored on your own computer - so there is nothing to forget except where otherwise noted.
Your browser should provide you with the functionality to remove this information, typically by searching its settings for 'cookies'. Delete the cookies/storage, and as far as this site is concerned, you are a stranger once more.
Alternatively, you can use the button below to clear storage explicitly, but this does not include any cached data.
