This is a web site, use it to entertain yourself, educate yourself, or occupy yourself. If your IP address is found to be pounding this server with requests, attempting to hack it, trying to deliver viruses, spamming, performing vulnerability probes, or generally being a harmful pain in the ass then I will probably firewall you out of snork.ca. Exceptionally bad or persistent problems may result in blocks of IP addresses being firewalled out. Firewall rules will expire according to how angry I get, and there is no appeal process. This site is of such little consequence and has so little traffic I have a hard time believing that anyone would care enough to question such a ban anyways.
It should also be noted that the firewall at snork.ca uses lists from stopforumspam.com and some country-based cidr lists to proactively block traffic. If you find yourself on one of these lists I suggest that you clean up your virus problem and ensure that you use an ISP that does not intentionally support spammers.
I think that intellectual property laws are a crock, and that sharing ideas and opinions is more important than making a few people rich. I sometimes use photos or text that belongs to someone else, but I try not to make it seem like it is my own self-generated content. Feel free to use my content for your own non-commercial purposes but please don't try to make it seem like your own and definitely do not use it in the process of generating revenue. That is just a dick move.
This web server collects typical Apache logs for most parts of this web site. These logs include IP addresses as well as user-agent, requested content, and time of the request. This information is pretty harmless and is only used to monitor for unusual behaviour. Unless you are doing something pretty stupid you'll quietly slip under the radar and I'll never even notice you. There are some parts of this site, such as the chat interface which are specifically and intentionally not logged at all. This is because you could potentially type personal information in to that interface and recording it would be a violation of your privacy.
There is no need for anyone to have an account at the snork.ca web site and as a result, no need for cookies to be accepted from this web server or presented to it. If you wish to disable cookies (and I recommend that you do by default) you can find reasonable instructions here at WikiHow.
I will not share, sell, or otherwise distribute any information that may deliberately or accidentally collected by this web server. In the event that I need to publish log contents (for the purpose of support or otherwise) I would sanitize any entries by masking, modifying, or removing any identifiable information first.
Look, I try to be fair. In general, I don't care who uses my content as long as you don't say you made it or use it in the process of generating income. I believe my opinions about IP generally line up with the Creative Commons BY-NC-SA 4.0 ideals. Having said all that, I am well aware of the fact that I can't stop anybody from stealing my online content... because there is nothing illegal about being a dick.
