Who I am
My website address is: https://www.gamerlady.blog.
I’m not building this site to spam you, advertise to you, contact you in any way you don’t opt in to (should I add opts ins for email newsletters or what not), and I absolutely won’t share your info with anyone else. This site is to help me own my content like the IndieWeb movement recommends. It is an outlet for my fun/free/me time, not anything work related. In fact, I prefer that people use their game aliases here as much as possible. I don’t believe in absolute anonymity, mainly because it allows too many people to feel like they can treat others poorly without consequences, but I also think we should have a buffer in place within our online communities. Like keeping your veggies from mixing with your pudding, daily RL and game free time don’t mix well. I also share profile links to other places you can find me. Please respect my privacy as well as I respect yours and don’t use those for nefarious purposes or to spamvertise me.
When visitors leave comments on the site it collects the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection. Other people who comment will also see some of your profile info. Please behave nicely in your comments to me, and to others who may choose to comment. I will block your IP if you are too obnoxious. Courtesy is a quality I expect from those with whom I interact.
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 my 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 visit the login page, it 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, it 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.
Who we share your data with
If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email. Otherwise, I hope to share your data with nothing that isn’t essential to running this site and using it to connect. I don’t want 3rd parties sticking their noses into my business, let alone yours. There are some affiliate links on the site, and when you visit those and buy things there is data shared with them, but that is completely up to you.
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 my website (if any), it also stores 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 it holds about you, including any data you have provided to me. You can also request that I erase any personal data I 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.
