Privacy Policy

PuzzleFast values your privacy.

PuzzleFast does NOT store your puzzle—neither the finished puzzle nor the list of words or word:clue pairs used to make the puzzle—UNLESS you elect to save the puzzle via the 'Save/Share' function. If your puzzle contains personal information, or if you have a proprietary interest in your puzzle and wish to retain copyright on it, do not use the 'Save/Share' function. Electing to save a puzzle means agreeing to the following terms, some of which may be understood to diminish your privacy even though puzzles are saved anonymously:

  1. Saving a puzzle is FREE and ANONYMOUS.

  2. Saving a puzzle means storing the finished puzzle on a PuzzleFast server, to be accessed over the Internet via an assigned PuzzleFast.com URL.

  3. Illegal, obscene, or malicious material, as well as third party copyrighted material (beyond fair use), must not be saved.

  4. Puzzles containing personal information should not be saved.

  5. Saving a puzzle establishes PuzzleFast.com as the puzzle's copyright owner. If you want to retain copyright for yourself, do not use the 'Save/Share' function.

  6. Saved puzzles are FREELY ACCESSIBLE to the general public for noncommercial use (attribution required).

  7. Your 'Save Options' selection notwithstanding, a saved puzzle may be deleted at any time or retained indefinitely, at the sole discretion of PuzzleFast.com.

  8. Change requests and deletion requests regarding saved puzzles often can be accommodated, but usually not right away.
