Privacy Notice Effective Date:
February 7, 2023.
Your privacy is very important to me and I am dedicated to protecting it. I will never sell, lend, or rent your personal information to any other third party, pinky-promise.
Personally Identifiable Information
Pixelpunk is the sole owner of all information collected on this site. I will not rent, sell or share any personally-identifiable information about you with third parties for any reason except when required to assist in resolving an issue you raise with us or as required by law.
Any personally identifiable information that you submit to my website via an online form will only be used to service your account and/or to provide you with information on Pixelpunk products and services. The types of personal information that may be collected at our website may include: name, address, email address and/or telephone number.
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.
I may also use third party advertisements on pixelpunk.com to help support the site financially. Some of these advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons (pixels or clear gifs…these are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies) when they advertise on my site, which will also send these advertisers information including your IP address, your ISP, or the browser you used to visit our site. This is generally used for geotargeting purposes (e.g. showing cooking ads to someone living in New York, for example) or showing certain ads based on specific sites visited (such as showing health services ads to someone who frequents healthy living-type sites).
DoubleClick DART cookies
I also may use DART cookies for ad serving through Google’s DoubleClick, which places a cookie on your computer when you are browsing the web and visit a site using DoubleClick advertising. This cookie is used to serve ads specific to you and your interests (”interest based targeting”). The ads served will be targeted based on your previous browsing history. DART uses “non personally identifiable information”. It does NOT track personal information about you, such as your name, email address, physical address, telephone number, social security numbers, etc. If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices about not having this information used by these companies, click here.
Please note: Deleting cookies does not mean you are permanently opted out of any advertising program. Unless you have settings that disallow cookies, the next time you visit a site running the advertisements, a new cookie will be added.

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.
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.
I have a few affiliate links on the site, meaning, if you click one and decide to buy something I may get a small referral fee. I will only link to something if it is a product that I actually use and whole-heartedly endorse. It’s not worth losing even a single reader just for a couple of nickels.
Your European Privacy Rights
For Individuals Within the EEA Only. Under the GDPR, in certain circumstances, you have the right to: (a) request access to any Personal Information we hold about you and related information, (b) obtain without undue delay the rectification of any inaccurate Personal Information, (c) request that your Personal Information is deleted (provided the Personal Information is not required by Pixelpunk, LLC for compliance with a legal obligation) (d) prevent or restrict processing of your Personal Information, except to the extent processing is required for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims; and (e) request transfer of your Personal Information directly to a third party where this is technically feasible.
Except when required by law, we will not sell, distribute, or reveal your email addresses or other personal information without your consent.
