What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Media

If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

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

In our old website (cheesewatergames.tk), we used Counterize analyics, as well as download-counter.

Counterize provided statistical analysis of information such as which browsers are used to browse our website, what countries view our content, common keyword searches, operating systems visitors use, commonly clicked outlinks, referrer sites, and our most popular content.
None of this information is personally identifiable.

Download counter simply watched the number of times any of our games are downloaded so that we get an idea of what our most popular executables are.

These services are no longer used on the current website.

Who we share your data with

We do not share any data without your consent with anyone aside from any parties mentioned above.

We are currently an ad-free site.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize 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.

Where we send your data

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

Your contact information

The only contact information collected is only the information you provided during site registration (if you register).

To contact us in regards to content, please email me@cheesewatergames.net

To contact us in regards to the website or infrastructure, please email rdmarsee@cheesewatergames.net.

Additional information

It’s too much effort to intentionally collect excessive data from our users, let alone sift through it and plan nefarious schemes against you. We’re just two guys who are busy trying to bring you entertainment as well as food for thought. Personal information is not even collected for advertisement purposes, as we are an ad-free site.

How we protect your data

This website utilizes SSL encryption to keep your data safe in transit between you and us. Usernames are also cryptographically stored.

What third parties we receive data from

Nobody. We are an independent website.

What automated decision making and/or profiling we do with user data

None. We just get excited when the rare occurrence that someone downloads something of ours takes place.
