What is Coasterpedia?

Coasterpedia uses MediaWiki software. It is run by user:Lachlan. It is not a business and does not make money. Coasterpedia does not run adverts of any kind, however, articles with embedded YouTube videos may feature adverts in the video player. These are controlled by Google, not Coasterpedia.

What data is collected and why

Visited pages and IP addresses are recorded in our server logs. This is standard practice and is used only for the identification of bots or other visitors that may be misusing this website. Server logs are periodically deleted.

This website also uses Google Analytics. This service collects the following data:

  • City and country
  • Pages visited
  • Browser, device, and screen resolution
  • Whether you are a new or returning visitor

This is collected directly via Google software. This information is anonymous and is not linked to information shared on user pages or account creation. Analytics data is only visible to user:Lachlan. Google Analytics may use cookies to improve data collection. A cookie may also be used to remember whether a user is logged in and to store your preferences for formatting measurements and dates in articles. Occasionally, anonymised usage statistics may be published.

Upon account creation, the user chooses what data they share with Coasterpedia. An email address is recommended, as we need it to reset a password, but not required. No personal information is required. No user under the age of 13 may share any personal information and must use a nickname when creating an account.

Coasterpedia does not share any information with third parties.
