Privacy Policy

What personal data we collect, and why we collect it

Comments

Our comments are managed by Discus, a third party comment network. This helps us to provide a more engaging experience by allowing for fully-featured comments to be used, and can be authenticated by popular means. We do not collect any data from this process, and all information is stored on Discus servers. We have rejected the ability to analyse our visitors via this means, however Discus will still collect information for the purposes of identifying your user and social accounts if you have used the service prior to arriving to this site.

Contact forms

When a contact form on our site is filled in, it is automatically processed into an email and sent to the website administrator. Outside of this email, the data is not stored within the website and is soon purged after the request was made.

Cookies

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

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 tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Analytics

This site uses Automattic and Google Analytics to build up an idea of various anonymous statistics about our website visits. This consists of – but not limited to – search terms, visitor times, popular pages, visitor countries, and more. All data collected is anonymous from our end, and is subjected to the privacy policy of Automattic and Google Analytics. We do not distribute collected analytics, however usage may vary for each analytical provider.

Who we share your data with

Nobody. We love retro gaming and so do you, but we do not distribute such information to other individuals and/or companies.

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

You can 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.
