Aggregated Statistics

Who we share your data with

We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called cookies, text files that are stored on your computer and that allow an analysis of the use of the website by you. The information generated by the cookie is usually transmitted to and stored on a Google server in the USA. However, if IP anonymisation is activated on this website, your IP address will be shortened by Google beforehand within member states of the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services related to website activity and internet usage. The IP address provided by Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data. You can prevent the storage of cookies by a corresponding setting of your browser software; however, please note that if you do this, you may not be able to use all the features of this website to the fullest extent possible. As a standard, Google saves your data for thirty-eight (38) months.

In addition, you may prevent the collection of the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) as well as the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

Advertisements

Ads appearing on our website may be delivered to users by advertising partners, such as Google AdWords, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognise your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by Deckade Games and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

You may opt-out of Google Analytics for Display Advertisers including AdWords and opt-out of customised Google Display Network ads by visiting the Google Ads Preferences Manager. To provide website visitors more choice on how their data is collected by Google Analytics, Google has developed an Opt-out Browser add-on, which is available by visiting Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on, to enable you to opt-out of Google’s programs.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Deckade Games collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Deckade Games’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Deckade Games’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Deckade Games may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Deckade Games also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on https://deckadegames.com blog posts. Deckade Games only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes. 

To make a request to about the information we have for you, including deleting your data, please contact: info@deckadegames.com.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

Security

The security of your Personal Information is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

Changes to Privacy Policy

Although most changes are likely to be minor, Deckade Games may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in Deckade Games’s sole discretion. Deckade Games encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy.
