TLOPO will never charge a fee, subscription, or any other form of monetary value to have access to the full game’s experience. Anyone who tries to charge for anything related to TLOPO is a scam, and any loss or damage accrued by use of such services is the responsibility of the user and not TLOPO. In the event that a user is scammed by a third-party, TLOPO will not give any compensation for any loss or damage accrued.

Additionally, logging into another player’s account is done at your own risk and you accept any and all adverse actions that may be taken on your account as a result.

In the event where an account is suspended, terminated, or restricted, the account owner may appeal the suspension, termination, or restrictions by emailing TLOPO at [email protected] Anything you write may be used as evidence against you in an appeal. All appeals will be reviewed by Senior Moderation staff. In the event Senior Moderation staff receive an appeal regarding an account termination and Senior Moderation accepts the appeal, the End-User's new account will be subject to a decreased warning point threshold (3 points). Should the End-User accumulate three (3) points on the new account, the player is subject to permanent removal from our Services. Evading a ban or termination will also result in additional warning points, bans, or potentially termination.
If you believe a moderation action was applied in error, please start a support case by emailing [email protected] Senior Moderation will review the case and determine if the action was applied in error.

This privacy notice discloses the privacy practices for The Legend of Pirates Online (“TLOPO”) on our website and game, and will notify you of the following:
- What personally identifiable information is collected from you throughout the usage of TLOPO.
- The security procedures in place to protect against the misuse of your information.
- The choices you have regarding the use of your data.
We are the sole owners of the information collected on this site. We only have access to/collect information that you voluntarily give us via visiting our website, registration, email, or other direct contact from you. We will not sell or rent this information to anyone.
If you contact us, we will review your information to respond to you in regard to the reason you contacted us. We may also use your information to moderate the activities on our network to ensure your compliance with our Terms of Service. We will not share your information with any third party outside of our organization, unless we are a) ordered to do so by relevant United States legislation b) reporting information to law enforcement relevant to a user violating United States or international law.
When signing up for this site, registrants are required to input a username and an email address. We also collect IP information, analytics about our users’ computers, along with coarsely accurate geographical location data.
When you register an account with us, we use a modern and secure hashing algorithm to hash and salt your passwords before putting them into our database. We do not know what your password is, nor do we want to know. As a result, TLOPO Staff will never ask for your password. We do not need it in order to assist our users in any way.
By using our services, you consent to the accessibility of all chat logs and relevant user data sent across our network to our Staff. Anything disclosed by you within these logs is the sole liability of you and not TLOPO. Staff access to this information is tiered and appropriately restricted to certain levels within our administration.
We reserve the right to perform real-time automated analysis of all communications and actions made on our services. An example of such analysis would be artificial intelligence monitoring our chat services in real-time for activities violating our Terms of Service and/or United States legislation or international law.
We reserve the right to keep a private internal record on all users. Such record could contain but is not limited to: a) known IP addresses b) shared accounts c) notes on previous incidents/bans/warnings d) emails associated with an account.
We reserve the right to monitor and log the in-game location of all users and the actions they are performing. Such use of this information includes but is not limited to: a) analytics b) moderation investigation.
We strive to ensure that all personally identifiable information is stored and maintained securely on our servers.
All communications made across/to our network, whether external or internal, are encrypted using modern standards.
We have taken significant precautions with the security of our game client. Such precautions include but are not limited to: Ensure that malicious individuals are not able to a) manipulate and/or control the client b) extract the source code that is our client c) perform man-in-the-middle (“MITM”) attacks d) manipulate or extract the resources of the client.
Whenever something is “deleted” from/on our services, such as an in-game pirate, it is not fully removed. Rather, it is no longer publicly visible and/or accessible. Any account registered on TLOPO is unable to be deleted.
You may opt out of any future contact from us at any time, excluding contact regarding the security or moderation standing of your account(s). You can do so at any time by going to your account page on our website and checking off that you do not wish to be contacted by TLOPO.
We collect and store all information sent across our network. If you do not want TLOPO to have access to this information, do not send it. We do not differentiate between what is sensitive or not; if it is sent across our network it is immediately logged and archived.
We reserve the right to redact certain portions of personal data, which was exchanged across our network, that is distributed to you in order to protect the privacy of other users.
Any user who has been banned by us will have access to their ban history, along with any additional warning points the account may have accrued. This information is typically kept strictly between TLOPO and the user. However, we reserve the right to disclose information regarding the bans of users. Potential forms of disclosure include but are not limited to a) statistical analysis of moderator action b) public service announcement (“PSA”) c) contact with law enforcement. An example of a potential PSA is a community warning regarding a player known to be distributing malware to others in the community.Questions
