Privacy Policy vs Community Standards

Question

  • 0

The first statement relates to your own info...If you publically give info about yourself in local  chat or on the forums etc you cannot expect any privacy rights.

The second statement relates to other people`s info...If you ahve been told something in private, you cannot share it.

However, if someone has already given their info publically (not in an IM), you are not doing anything wrong sharing it.

Just because I have an Alt and tell you so, is not permission for you to tell the universe that I'm also "Surgical Resident" and I sleep with "Nurse McKinzie" in the skybox at 122, 140, 600 on the sim Scirocco on alternate Thursdays between 6 and 8pst.  If I want the world to know, I'll tell the world myself.  But I told you, privately, and I expect you to keep things told in confidence, confidential.  No doubt you'd be upset if I told the world details you confided to me, now wouldn't you?

Good seats are still available by the skybox at 122, 140, 600 on the sim Scirocco btw.  Order your tickets now.

PeeWee's answer is the correct one... minus one detail.  A person can disclose whatever they like about themselves, but unless they do it in a public way via open chat or their visible profile, anything they tell you in IM is confidential... IN THEIR EXACT WORDS.  It definitely violates TOS to relay any EXACT messages or copy/paste any logs of IMs with this person without their express consent.  However... your hands are not tied in reference to your friend, as you can tell anyone what someone told you IN YOUR OWN WORDS anytime you like and will be committing no TOS breaches.  This is the loophole you were seeking.  So by all means, spare your friend/patron some heartache if you like, as long as she'll believe you without the "proof" an IM log would provide.

Also- your sim your rules- you can ban anyone you like and any of their alts with no reason at all, if you so choose.  Bear in mind the negative light it may shed on your establishment if this dishonest putz decides to start some sh!t, though.
