Privacy Policy

Privacy Notice Effective Date:
June 16, 2020.

Pixelpunk – found at https://www.pixelpunk.com/ – (‘Website’) is governed by the following privacy policy (‘Privacy Policy’).

This Privacy Policy applies exclusively to information practices related to my website, pixelpunk.com. Although this website may contain links to other websites, please be aware that I cannot be responsible for the privacy practices of those, or any other sites. If you follow a link to another website you should carefully read their privacy policy.

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, LLC 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.

Form Submissions

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, LLC 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.

Comments

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.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Log Files/Analytics

I generally record certain usage information, such as the number and frequency of visitors to my website. This information may include the websites that you access immediately before or after your visit to pixelpunk.com, the Internet browser you are using and your IP address. I use this information for internal use to help me provide a better user experience and to determine what kinds of information our users may find useful. Again, this information does not identify users personally, only their general behavior while using the website. For more information about Google’s privacy policy in respect of Google Analytics, please refer to: https://www.google.com/analytics/terms/us.html. You may opt out of Google Analytics by visiting https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl+en=GB.

Cookies

I do use cookies to store information, such as your personal preferences when you visit my site. Cookies are small files placed on your hard drive. Each website that you visit can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser preferences allow it. These cookies do not personally identify the user but only act to help us better understand user needs. You are always free to decline our cookies if your browser permits. These cookies will last for one year.

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.

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. These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

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.

Affiliate Links

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.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

Pixelpunk, LLC reserves the right to change, modify, add, or remove portions of this Privacy Policy at any time for any reason. Please review this policy periodically for changes. A link to the current version of this Privacy Policy can be accessed from the footer of every page on this website. You acknowledge that by accessing this website after we have posted changes to this Privacy Policy, you are agreeing to the terms of the Privacy Policy as modified.

Except when required by law, we will not sell, distribute, or reveal your email addresses or other personal information without your consent.
