Matrix-36 follows a standard procedure of using log files. These files log visitors when they visit websites. All hosting companies do this as a part of hosting services' analytics. The information collected by log files include internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), date and time stamp, referring/exit pages, and possibly the number of clicks. These are not linked to any information that is personally identifiable. The purpose of the information is for analyzing trends, administering the site, tracking users' movement on the website, and gathering demographic information.

If you have an account and you log in to the Matrix-36 website, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies.

Another part of our priority is ensuring the protection of children while using the internet. We encourage parents and guardians to observe, participate in, and/or monitor and guide their online activity. Matrix-36 does not knowingly collect any Personal Identifiable Information from children under the age of 13. If you think that your child may have provided this kind of information on our website, we strongly encourage you to contact us immediately and we will do our best efforts to promptly remove such information from our records. How long we retain your data If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue. For users that register on our website, we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time; however, they cannot change their username. Website administrators can also see and edit this information.
If you have an account on the Matrix-36 website, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
