Who we are
We are brothers who like making/talking about games and life stuff.
One of us is the creator, the other maintains infrastructure for content delivery.
Our website address is: https://cheesewatergames.net (obviously).
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
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.
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.
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.
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.
The IP address of visitors, user ID of logged in users, and username of login attempts are conditionally logged to check for malicious activity and to protect the site from specific kinds of attacks. Examples of conditions when logging occurs include login attempts, log out requests, requests for suspicious URLs, changes to site content, and password updates. This information is retained for 60 days.
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 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, we store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users canview, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also view and edit that information.
Security logs are retained for 60 days.
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.

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. As privacy advocates ourselves, we have no interest in personally identifying you.

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.
