What personal data we collect and why we collect it
As part of our commitment to building a privacy-respecting game we aim to collect the minimum amount of personal data possible that allows us to run the game effectively and comply with local laws here in Switzerland.
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the contents of their comment and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string. We pass this data to the Akismet service to filter out spam.
If you use our contact form then the information you provide (your email address and your message) is sent via the Mailgun service to our email account which is hosted by Google GSuite. We also pass this data to the Akismet service to filter out spam.
When using the SI:REDUX website you may have a cookie placed on your computer/phone to assist with load-balancing of the website. This cookie does not track you and does not contain any personally identifiable information. You may also receive cookies related to our Stripe-powered donation system (see below). Again, these cookies do not track you and do not contain any personally identifiable information.
To get critical information about the behaviour of our visitors, we use Simple Analytics. This analytics software gives us insight about our visitors only in general, but not about individuals per se, as it does not track visitors and does not store any personal identifiable information. Go to their documentation to find out what Simple Analytics collects (and most importantly what they do not).
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely (but you can always contact us and request that it is removed). If you contact us then we will retain the information that you sent to us for the duration of the current run of the game, plus an additional 6 months.
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. Contact us to request this.
