Privacy on the Guinevere Virtual World
For the GUINEVERE Virtual World a personal account is needed. This account needs to be created on our web portal: http://world.guinevereproject.eu:8002/wifi/user/account/
During the sign up process we collect your first name, last name and password; the latter will be safely encrypted in our database. We never require you to provide your real name as a username and you are free to choose any name. Your email address is optional; this is not needed for creating the account. This is only used when a ‘forgot password’ request is sent by the user, through our web portal.
If you provide us with your email address and then later decide you’d like us to delete it from our records, just let us know by sending us an email at info at 3dles dot com, and we’d be happy to do so. We do not use your email to send future email or for any other purpose.
The account needs approval by the Virtual World manager before a user can log into the virtual world.
In the GUINEVERE Virtual World, we intend to collect information for educational research purposes only.
We log or collect:
- The username, IP, User ID number, date and time when a user enters the virtual world.
- The preferred language the user wants to use.
- The birth year of the user.
- What objects the user has clicked on, sat on or walked through, including date and time.
- What games the user has played and what score the user reached, including date and time.
- The conversation the user has done with other users or with chat bots, using text chat.
- Observation of avatar interaction in the virtual world that may be video recorded.
At your first log in on our Guinevere Virtual World server, you will see a pop-up on your screen that will ask you to agree to the privacy terms mentioned above. If you do not agree, you will still have access to all islands but your personal data will not be collected. By accepting the terms you will provide consent to your participation in the educational research mentioned above.
You are free to withdraw from the study at any time. At every stage, your name will remain confidential. The data will be kept securely and will be used for research purposes only.
