Privacy Policy

The following constitutes the official Privacy Policy for the Mallow the Garbodor official web portal, located at, as well as any other current and future locations.

Who are we?

The intention of the Mallow the Garbodor site is to provide an official portal for art and stories related to Mallow the Garbodor and provide resources for potential role-play activity and artwork or story commissions now and in the future. Mallow is an original fan-made character who takes the form of a Garbodor, a character from Nintendo’s popular Pokémon franchise described as a “Trash Heap Pokémon”. Due to the nature of this type of character, parts of the character description, settings for stories or artwork, and certain themes explored within the works involving this character, may contain themes that may not be to everyone’s tastes or use types of humour that may be unsuitable for certain environments.

For this reason, when you visit this site for the first time, you will be shown a content warning message making you aware of the above notices. Clicking on the “proceed” button or continuing to visit any other part of our site will cause the Mallow the Garbodor website to store a cookie on your computer. This cookie is used solely to confirm to us that the notice has been read and clicked past, which will be deemed acceptance of the terms and will suppress the warnings from being displayed in future visits, unless the cookie is cleared by you or expires due to the length of time since the last visit.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

I will always endeavour where possible to keep content on-site where possible and, if embedding content from external sites, will always strive to find the most privacy-respecting solution possible. However, I cannot accept liability for the actions of any third-party suppliers of content used.
