Terms of Use

Children prohibited

The Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) severely restricts what information can be collected from children under 13. For this reason, children under 13 are prohibited from using The Backloggery. Children 13 and over may participate with the permission and guidance of their parent or guardian. Users of all ages are warned not to provide profile information without weighing the risks and benefits, and never to provide their phone number, address or other critical personal data online.


The Backloggery aims to be a friendly, inclusive community for anyone who wants to participate. Bigotry, slurs, harassment, or other personal attacks will not be tolerated. Do not use the comment system to spam.

How to deal with abuse

If you dislike interacting with a specific user, we recommend using the block feature to keep them from contacting you. If the offending user attempts to circumvent the block, they immediately qualify for a ban on any and all accounts they use and the Backloggery staff should be contacted immediately. If a user displays extremely vile behavior, please contact the staff immediately using the Contact form.

Automated Input and Retrieval

Except by permission or through an authorized API (none of which currently exist), you may not add to or query your profile automatically.

Empty accounts

We may delete accounts with no games after three months.
