This policy explains in detail how the Sherlock User Forum, along with its affiliated companies (hereinafter “we”, “us”, and “our”) and phpBB (hereinafter “they”, “them”, and “their”) use any information about you collected during your use of this forum.
To access all of the functionality offered by the Sherlock User Forum, each user must provide a uniquely identifiable user name, a personal password used to log into the individual’s account, and a valid email address. Additional information beyond your username, password, and email address may be requested during registration or in using the Sherlock User Forum and may be either mandatory or optional, at our discretion. You may use account settings to control which of your personal information is publicly displayed (e.g. in relation to your postings) and to set your email preferences for communications from the phpBB software. Your account information is processed in accordance with applicable data protection laws, as further detailed by the Privacy Notice found on the ANSYS-DfR website.
The passwords stored on the Sherlock User Forum are ciphered (i.e. a one-way hash) for security. However, it is recommended that you do not reuse the same password across different websites. Your password is the means of accessing your forum account, so please guard it carefully. Under no circumstance will anyone affiliated with the Sherlock User Forum, phpBB, or third-party data processors that we engage legitimately ask you for your password. Should you forget your password, you can use the “I forgot my password” feature provided by the phpBB software. This process will ask you to submit your username and email address in order to generate a new password for your account.
