Visibility of contents

The published biographies are not publicly visible: To read them, users must sign in with an existing EVE Online account. None of the publicly accessible pages contain any EVE Online related material.

Content policy

EVE Biographies is a free service intended to be a useful and fun extension to your EVE Online gameplay. We would only ask you to respect a few guidelines when writing your biographies. We will remove any content if it matches any of the following criteria:

  • Contains illegal content
  • Is Involuntary pornography
  • Is sexual or suggestive content involving minors
  • Threatens, harasses or bullies, or encourages others to do so
  • Is personal or confidential information
  • Impersonates someone in a misleading or deceptive manner
  • Uses EVE Biographies to solicit or facilitate any transaction or gift involving out of game goods and services
  • Is spam

Privacy policy

EVE Biographies collects no personal user data whatsoever. Through EVE Online's single sign on service, only a character's ID and ingame name are stored in the local database. At no point in the communication with the EVE Online servers is any information accessible on the person owning the EVE Online account, thus guaranteeing complete anonymity.

The character name is used to be able to access the character's biography, the ID is only used internally. The character name and its biography text are stored indefinitely, until the user chooses to remove it, or EVE Biographies decides to stop its service. Only the EVE Online character name and the biography text the user enter are shared publicly on the website.

Cookie usage: EVE Biographies uses session cookies to allow users to sign in and edit their biography text. Data safety: The database is subject to regular backups, and cannot be accessed externally. Policy changes: Changes to this privacy policy will be announced on EVE Biographies's landing page.

Age rating for contents

The published biographies are only accessible using EVE Online's single sign on service. As a result, EVE Biographies inherits EVE Online's age rating of PEGI 13. Any EVE character posting a biography to EVE Biographies thus automatically fulfills the age requirements to read other users' biographies, or post their own biography.
