Privacy Policy

Smogon records your IP address when you visit our site. Unless our services are abused, we do not use this information to identify you. If our services are abused (such as our forum being spammed), we reserve the right to use your IP address to contact your Internet Service Provider's abuse department.

Smogon uses cookies at your option to automatically log you in the forum.

Third party vendors, including Google, use cookies to serve ads based on your prior visits to Smogon. Google's use of the DoubleClick cookie enables it and its partners to serve ads to you based on your visit to Smogon. You may opt out of the use of the DoubleClick cookie for interest-based advertising by visiting the ads preference manager.

Finally, because of COPPA, we strictly enforce our age policy. All of our site content including the forums, Discord, IRC, simulators, onsite analyses, videos, articles, webzines, and social media accounts may contain content not suitable for those under the age of 13. If we somehow determine, or if you announce that you are under the age of 13, you will be banned immediately from our social outlets including the forums and IRC. No exceptions.
