Hello!

Those of you in the EU will no doubt be getting countless emails regarding GDPR and updates to Privacy Policies. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (EU) 2016/679 is a regulation in EU law on data protection and privacy for all individuals within the European Union and the European Economic Area. It also addresses the export of personal data outside the EU and EEA. These laws come into effect on May 25th 2018.

We've always taken data protection seriously but have recently made some changes to our processes and documentation to further meet the requirements of GDPR. As part of this work, we’ve updated our privacy policy to give you more insights into how we process your personal data.

We've improved the wording of our Privacy Policy to make it easier for you to understand how we handle your personal data, and we’ve also made it more detailed and specific.

We've also removed some data fields from our system. We have removed gender, date of birth and gaming habits. We felt that this personal information was no longer required to operate the website and therefore decided to remove it. Please note that these questions may still appear in specific surveys but are no longer held against user accounts.

If you're visiting the website within the EU, you will also see a personalised adverts consent banner. If you are not in the EU you can also opt out of personalised ads by visiting the Privacy Policy page.

We hope you find the updated policy useful, we will continue to update it based on any frequently asked questions we receive from you.

Thanks!
