GuildPortal FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions about GuildPortal Hosting


Q: Can I have a copy of my data?

GuildPortal data and schema (the layout of the data) are not exportable to other formats, nor are they open for disclosure.  The schema of a database are the foundation of the application on top of it, and therefore are considered a "trade secret" or "intellectual property."  Providing all relevant site data for a single guild or group in exported format represents a security and intellectual property risk that Axiom Shift, LLC. is not able to take.

This means that we cannot provide forums, roster data, or anything else that resides on our server in exportable format (XML, plain text, anything).  In addition, "Screen scraping" is a violation of the Terms of Use, and discovery of this activity can and will result in permanent IP banning and possible reporting to the ISP of the user discovered doing it.
