Thank you sincerely for your interest in being a member of Spiritual Awakening. Your data belongs to you, you own it, and can download a copy of all your posts in XML format any time in your account settings area. This conforms with the GDPR privacy policy not only for the European Union, but also world wide.

All ads we do or will deploy are in house. Any campaign you see, unless otherwise specified relate to Spiritual Awakening in an effort to enhance quality of service using your own data. We will never repost, sell, or send your data to third parties without your permission. Your email address is protected by administration, so if we notice anything going on in terms of an administrative security risk, we are always in notification with you concerning server changes.

If you use a weak password, your account can be used by  hackers to login using a brute force security attempt. We limit bot net access to this type of harmful and invasive activity on the server level, so that they are not allowed to repeatedly ping the database with dictionary or denial of service attempts to attack the server or any account on it using data decryption methods. At the same time, if you forget your password, the chances of you being locked out of your account are minimal especially since we enabled login through email verification within 600 seconds so that if you receive an email containing an encrypted URL to put into your browser, it will expire after 10 minutes. Additionally, we will be setting up 2factor authentication as an optional method for you to be sure, your data is yours alone. So please, protect your email account more securely so that you yourself aren't a proxy for a hacker to socially engineer a system of identity impersonation. This is why we will be enabling 2factor so that your password is not the last line of defence when it comes to there being no question, we're a safe and secure online social community. If you want, administrator (s) entrusted with data security can reset your password to something only you remember. We may require a voice call to confirm it is really you before making such a request, otherwise we will verify your IP and location first. We would only do this upon request as stated.

In an effort to keep track of your posts, you have bulk and individual privacy settings for anything you submit, be it a file or text block. No matter what section you use, you as a member will never be limited to the ability to manage your posts, accept if you are in the banned user group. IF you are banned, your data is suspended, and administration uses that feature extremely rarely so you have plenty of options available to you prior to there being any site bans. We are not into data censorship accept for appropriate areas of legal requirements. Please note, guests cannot post to the site for security purposes. By default, anyone can view your posts, but you can change this setting in bulk as per your requirements in your privacy settings when logged in. Similarly, the only time your data may become unavailable, is if our server platform is updated during an upgrade or server maintenance window of scheduled down time.

Our registration process is a little comprehensive because we need to protect the server against spam bots, who are not real users trying to post harmful activity. So we do currently employ Google Recaptcha and a security check at the account creation level only. The answer to the current security question is Cancer in case you are having trouble with the sign up process. We ask that you upload a profile photo to confirm it is you, not a bot which is just another way of making sure you can represent yourself the way you want. In alignment with this idea, some profile fields like Name, email address, password and age verification help to ensure we can provide the best service to you long term, which is why they are required when filling out profile information. What isn't asked of us, is yours to command, and you are able to hide or show any profile field you wish on your profile to whom ever you like if they are a member or to all guests.

We strive to be an open communications platform where you are able to be free to become all that you desire. If you have any other questions, please use the contact us form and an administrator will get back to you with an appropriate response. Thank you for using Spiritual Awakening.
