Orion aims at providing users with fast and reliable access to the offered services and the underlying API and servers. However, we cannot guarantee consistent uptime of our servers and we might experience high loads during peak times. From time to time we will fix bugs, upgrade our API, and maintain our servers, which might cause the services to be slow or temporarily unavailable. Especially during the first months of operation, we will fine-tune our system which might result in down times. We do not provide any refunds in the case of down times. If the service is down for a very long time, we will extend users' subscriptions with the lost time incurred.
Orion users agree to use the service in a proper manner, not to unnecessarily overload the server, not to circumvent restrictions imposed by Orion, and not to exploit the service, server, and API in any way that will cause slowdowns, instability, or restrict the access of other users. If we detect any abuse of the system, the account will be closed and the user permanently banned without warning. Any remaining subscription time will be forfeited.
All the content available through Orion's API and website is scraped, processed, and submitted by users from the community. Users typically retrieve the data from other publicly available third-party websites. Orion does not collect any of the information itself, and due to the velocity of new data submitted by users, is unable to manually check each new entry. In addition, Orion does not create, distribute, or share any files. All data on Orion's server is purely textual. Due to the data being maintained by the community, certain links may be down or inaccessible, and certain metadata might be outdated. Users are advised to only submit data to and request data from Orion's API that adheres to the laws of their country. We do not take any responsibility for links and metadata submitted by users. If you find any broken links, incorrect metadata, or illegal content that you want taken down, please contact the Orion team. Orion is in compliance with 17 U.S.C. § 512 and the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA). Please refer to Orion's DMCA Policy
for more details.
Data available through Orion's API is maintained by the user community. The metadata might therefore be inaccurate or outdated, and links might no longer work. Orion does not guarantee reliable data. If some entries are inaccurate, either ignore it and pick another one, or contact us to remove it.
Users' privacy is a priority for us. We do not keep any logs on our servers, which is also known as a zero-log policy. Hence, your IP address is never permanently stored. The moment you make a request to our servers, the last two octets of your IP address are anonymized. That is, half of the entire address is replaced by zeros, which makes it impossible to track it back to you. This anonymized IP address is never linked to your account or the requests you make, and is not stored on a permanent basis. We do us the anonymized IP address to determine the country from which the requests originate, in order to optimally place servers closer to our users. However, only the country is tracked, not the region, city, or coordinates. Since two octets of the IP address are anonymized, it is impossible to track the location on a regional or city basis. Even a country cannot be accurately determined by only two octets, but we only need a more-or-less rough estimation of the countries that our users come from. At no point in time do we keep any information that can be used to track users or violate their privacy.
Besides not keeping logs on our servers, we try our best to ensure you privacy. We only require your email address and password in order to create an account. Passwords are fully salted and hashed and can therefore not be used by potential hackers, or even by us. If you are concerned about your privacy, you can also use an alternative email address during registration. We do not recommend using a temporary email account, since you won't be able to reset your password or communicate with us if you lose access to that email account. We suggest to rather create a secondary, but permanent, email account; but this is by no means necessary for the normal user. We also offer pseudo-anonymous payments through cryptocurrencies and resellers. The crypto payment gateways accept privacy-oriented coins, such as Monero and Zcash, which are even more anonymous than other currencies like Bitcoin or Ethereum. We also do not share any of your information with any third parties for any reason whatsoever. There is no useful data to share in the first place.
If you have read up until here, you will know that users' privacy is of utmost importance to us. We adhere to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) set forth by the European Union (EU). We collect as little data as possible. The following user details are stored permanently:
- Email address
- Salted and hashed password
- Subscription package if any
- Date and time account was registered
- Date and time account was updated
- Date and time subscription was extended
The following information is stored temporarily:
- Total number of requests made in the last 24 hours
- Anonymized IP address
Without prior approval and express written permission, you may not create frames around our webpage or use other techniques that alter in any way the visual presentation or appearance of our website.
Accounts are limited to a single user and sharing the account or API key with other people is strictly prohibited. You are allowed to use the account and API key on different devices in the same household. If we detect account sharing or abuse, the account will be closed. Any remaining subscription time will be forfeited.
Sharing app API keys between different apps is strictly prohibited. App keys are used by developers if they want to integrate Orion's services into their website, addon, or other program. Each app must have its own unique key which is not allowed to be shared amongst developers or apps. A custom app API key is free and can easily be requested from the Orion team. If we detect app key sharing, the key will be revoked and the user's account will be closed. Any remaining subscription time will be forfeited. Honestly, there is no reason to use someone else's key, just request your own one.
Orion does not provide refunds for payments made. Due to the high fees imposed by payment gateways and the administrative tasks involved for refunds, it is impractical to reverse transactions. If there are disputes or problems with your subscription, we will look into the situation on an ad-hoc basis. If we agree on the dispute, we may upgrade your account or increase the remaining time on your subscription. However, we will not provide monetary refunds.
