Personal Information

When you create an account, we record the email address and username you provide. Also, when accessing the site, your browser might automatically on its own send various metadata (e.g. which browser, operating system).
  • We may use your email address to contact you about your account, changes to this site or policy, or information about KataGo and/or contribution to KataGo. We won't use your email address for anything else, and unless compelled by law, we won't share your email address with anyone else.
  • The username you provide may be shown publicly alongside the data that KataGo generates when you contribute (see Generated Data section below), or with statistics gathered about that generated data.
  • Any browser-sent metadata may end up passively in our webserver logs for a limited time. We make no effort to retain or track such information, except in aggregated anonymous statistics.
That's about it. We don't collect any other personal information.

Generated Data

When you sign up for an account and run the KataGo executable to contribute, the KataGo executable connects to this website and uploads synthetic game and training data generated based on its own automatic simulation and play using your computer. Other than the username you provide, no personal information is recorded in or associated with this data.

We may make this data publicly available for download on this website in connection with the username you provided, use it to train or improve KataGo, use it for research or other similar purposes, or include it in a larger compilation of data to be publicly and freely available for download or use by anyone.
