We here at Kingdom Hearts Insider understand that not everyone may be accustomed with the laws of the land, or in this case, the general rules and conduct of the forum-going experience. This FAQ exists to enlighten everyone new and old to the community and to answer the questions that arouse on a typical need-to-know basis. And because these are things members of the general Kingdom Hearts community feel they need to know, this FAQ was born.
Kingdom Hearts Insider is run entirely by volunteers who aim to deliver a bright and friendly community where people can come together to participate in friendly discussion and activities revolving primarily around the Kingdom Hearts and Final Fantasy series in accordance with our sister site, Final Fantasy Network. In order to make the experience enjoyable for every single individual, we'd like everyone to understand that membership access to our forums is a privilege earned, not a right to have regardless of actions and consequences.
If a member by any chance goes forth to breaks the rules or do anything in the vein that the Administrators and Moderators may view as unfit for the community, we have the right to act in response, ranging from distributing infractions to denying an account completely. Once again for clarification, every single person has the right to participate in discussions here at Kingdom Hearts Insider. However, like it is in the real world as well, that right only remains so long as you follow the rules. By accommodating this small request, a person has the right to be a member at Kingdom Hearts Insider.

Certainly not. Any and all personal information you give us upon registering serves merely for basic statistical purposes, and will not be shared with any third party under any circumstances.
