While Calgarypuck is an anonymous forum (posters do not have to use their real identity to post with), we do require that all posters have real identities that are verified. The information that is collected is used to verify your identity. The specifics of what information is required and how it is used is detailed below.
All registrations are held and manually reviewed to confirm that the information provided is consistent and belongs to a person. This can take some time, the more information provided the more quickly the registration can be processed.
We respect your privacy and will never share your personal information without permission unless deemed necessary in cases of safety or compelled to by law.
Providing false information will result in an account being banned.

All users must provide an email address, which will be verified during the registration process. Add "email@example.com" to your safe senders if you have a spam filter to ensure you receive the email.
