Code of Conduct
The biggest and most important rule on RPC is respect. Respect each other, respect yourself, and respect the RPC staff. Treat others with kindness and expect to receive kindness in return.
No harassment, bullying, slander, off-color remarks, profanity, or fire-starting commentary will be permitted in usernames, about me, or outside links. RPC staff has an open-door policy where you are welcome to report negative behavior, problems, and suggest new content using our contact form on the site.
RPC staff is the final say on issues, rules, and punishment. We at RPC follow an "elastic" rule, stating that we can adjust as needed for the safety of our members. The safety of our members is of paramount importance and we will not tolerate any behavior that threatens that safety.
RPC is a SFW (safe for work) and 15+ website. We strive to keep the website safe for all ages on a PG-13 level. No excessive profanity or vulgarity and absolutely no nudity or explicit content permitted.
Your account will be listed as inactive if you do not sign in after three months. After being listed as inactive for a year (be it automatically or of your own volition), your account is automatically deleted and you will need to sign up again.

Information Collection And Use
To start using our Service, we ask you to provide us with certain personally identifiable information that can be used to contact or identify you. Personally identifiable information may include, but is not limited to, your name, your email, other forms of contact, and other information ("Personal Information").
By submitting your information to be posted on our “database,” otherwise known as “The List” of roleplayers, you're acknowledging that you may be contacted by people who are also users of the Service.
Your information will never be sold by the administrators of the Service and we will never ask you for Personal Information that is not necessary to use our Service. Once members have begun off-site contact with one another via e-mail, instant messenger, off-site forums, or other methods of contact, the administrators are no longer responsible for regulating the contact.
We collect information that your browser sends whenever you visit our Service ("Log Data"). This Log Data may include information such as your computer's Internet Protocol ("IP") address, browser type, browser version, the pages of our Service that you visit, the time and date of your visit, the time spent on those pages and other statistics.This information is private and used to assure we are giving the best service possible to our users.
Cookies are files with small amount of data, which may include an anonymous unique identifier. Cookies are sent to your browser from a web site and stored on your computer's hard drive.
We use "cookies" to collect information. You can instruct your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, if you do not accept cookies, you may not be able to use some portions of our Service.
We do not employ third party companies and individuals to facilitate our Service, to provide the Service on our behalf, to perform Service-related services or to assist us in analyzing how our Service is used.
All members of our staff are listed on our Discord server. These “current administrators” and “website moderators” have access to the Personal Information that you have given us upon signing up for our Service. They are only given access to perform the necessary tasks to run our Service and are obligated not to disclose or use it for any other purpose.
The security of your Personal Information is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
Given the nature of our Service, the information you provide is publicly accessible to other users as part of our “Database”, otherwise known as “The List.” While we ourselves do not offer up your Personal Information to other sites, it is possible for any user logged into the website to access your contact information as it is listed on our Service. RPC is not responsible for resulting unsolicited contact.
Links To Other Sites
We have no control over, and assume no responsibility for the content, privacy policies, or practices of any third party sites or services. Users are given the option to link fellow users to a personal website listing additional information related to our Service. RPC is not responsible for the content listed upon these sites.
Our Service does not address anyone under the age of 15 ("Children"). Our service operates under United States law.
We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under 15. If you are a parent or guardian and you are aware that your Children has provided us with Personal Information, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If we discover that a Children under 15 has provided us with Personal Information, we will delete such information from our servers immediately.
See below our full NSFW and age disclaimer regarding writing NSFW content with minors (just don't do it, it's illegal) and underage characters.
The age of you, your partners, and the characters you both
write are paramount, particularly when writing scenes involving sexual content (smut). When
a minor is involved in writing smut it becomes a legal issue, one that can lead to criminal
charges to those who are involved. These charges are more times than not felonies.
If you are a minor, or if you are aware that your partner is a minor, do not engage
in roleplay that involves sexual content. Take the time to ask your partner how old
they are, and use common sense and reason to vet them to ensure that you are not
being placed into a situation that could have criminal ramifications. If you are a
minor, do not falsify your age to appear as an adult, as this places your partners
in a horrible position, and you in a dangerous one.
Underage characters involved in smut are also an issue within the roleplay community, and reflect very poorly on you, your partner, and the community as a whole. They are strictly forbidden on RPC, which includes characters listed in ads, characters involved in roleplay stemming from the server, and mentions of underage characters in sexual situations. Imagery of underage characters in sexual situations is similarly a criminal issue.
