In-game player-created content
Hacker's Edge provides the facilities for players to create their own in-game content. This content cannot be accessed by the general public, and can only be viewed by in-game character accounts. Content you create in-game is your responsibility to keep secure, as that is technically one of the arguable objectives of the game. Therefore, you should not create content, which is otherwise potentially real-life private information. Hacker's Edge, and it's staff and moderators cannot remove in-game content which has otherwise been stolen in-game by other players. The whole point of this game is for players to hack other players in-game content and steal it for their own advantage.
If you have any questions and/or concerns, please seek out either the game creator, or a game staff/moderator.
