We are making a change to the CPDN licence agreement (http://www.climateprediction.net/getting-started/licence-agreement/). We are changing 1) to:
1) You accept that your name, e-mail address and machine details will be stored on a database whilst you are actively volunteering for The Project but these details will not be passed on to any third party.
2) You accept that your name and e-mail address will be erased from the database after 3 years of inactivity.
In line with this change we will shortly be erasing the names and email addresses of those volunteers with >3 years of inactivity. This will be done within the next week.
To comply with the Data Protection Act 1998, we are required to only keep personal data for as long as it is absolutely necessary. We will therefore only keep records of inactive volunteers for three years from now on. Initially any records inactive since 2014 or before that date will be removed. We will continue to remove records that have been inactive for three years or more on an ongoing basis.
Therefore anyone who signed up prior to this and has been inactive for over three years but wishes to renew their engagement will need to set up a new account. If you have been inactive for the last couple of years and wish us to retain your email and username, please reactivate your account as soon as possible.
Project credits from these accounts will be retained but will no longer be linked to an email address or username.
Current, active, volunteers, or those who have been active in the last three years, will not be affected by this policy.
