On this website we only use Google Analytics and anonymized IP-addresses, so we can only see how people are using the website. We also disabled tracking for all YouTube video-content that is visible on this website. Visiting our website will not store or track any personal data.
We do offer live-battles which show players in servers with their chosen nickname from their BAR-player-account. Games played online are also stored as downloadable replays.
