GamesNostalgia Privacy Policy

Short version

  • GamesNostalgia is a very simple website. There is no signup or newsletter registration. This means we don't ask (and we don't store) any personal information of our users in any database.
  • Like many other websites, we use Google Analytics to collect anonymous statistics about your visit, like which of our pages you viewed.
  • Some 3rd parties like Facebook and Twitter may know you visited this website, if you use their services. They also know if you have liked our page, followed us or shared any link. We can’t control them but we don’t believe this knowledge poses any threat to you.
  • We use a few anonymous cookies to provide a better service, such as showing this website in your preferred language. Ironically, we store in a cookie the fact that you are aware we are using cookies.

These are just the key points. If you need detail, keep reading.

Measuring our visitors

We measure visits to our website using Google Analytics. This records what pages you view within our site, how you arrived at our site and some basic information about your computer. All of that information is anonymous – so we don’t know who you are; just that somebody visited our site.

The information we collect from analytics helps us understand what parts of our sites are doing well, how people arrive at our site and so on. Like most websites, we use this information to make our website better.

You can learn more about Google Analytics or opt out if you wish.

Facebook, Twitter and other social networks

These services provide social buttons and similar features which we use on our website – such as the “Like”, “Tweet”, "Follow" or "Share" buttons.

To do so we embed code that they provide and we do not control ourselves. To function their buttons generally know if you’re logged in; for example Facebook use this to say “x of your friends like this”. We do not have any access to that information, nor can we control how those networks use it.

Advertising

We also use third party advertisements on GamesNostalgia to support our site. Some of these advertisers may use technology such as cookies when they advertise on our site, which will also send these advertisers (such as Google through the Google AdSense program) information including your IP address, your ISP , the browser you used to visit our site, and in some cases, whether you have Flash installed. This is generally used for geotargeting purposes or showing certain ads based on specific sites visited (such as showing videogames ads to someone who frequents videogames sites). Check this page if you want to know more about this.

Discussion comments

To allow visitors to discuss our blog articles and some web pages we use a discussion system called Disqus.

To do so we embed code that Disqus provide and we do not control ourselves. Disqus anonymously tracks visitors to pages like we do. They also remember who you are if you login to any Disqus service, so you can comment on any website using their tool.

Logging in to Disqus can be done in many ways, including via Facebook. If you login via social network, Disqus will be able to link your activity to that network. In this way, your Disqus activity may be personally identifiable.

Disqus will know what pages you viewed in our site and what you wrote on those comments. Of course all comments you leave are also publicly visible on the Internet alongside your name, so we do not imagine this is a concern for many people.

Security

Since GamesNostalgia doesn't store any personal information, there is no risk this kind of information will be stolen from our website.

Nobody at GamesNostalgia will ever ask you for your password, so please don’t trust anybody asking you for it.

Log Files

As with most other websites, we collect and use the data contained in log files. The information in the log files include your IP (internet protocol) address, your ISP (internet service provider), the browser you used to visit our site (such as Chrome or Firefox), the time you visited our site and which pages you visited throughout our site.

Updates to this policy

We may update this privacy policy from time-to-time, especially if we change the site or introduce new features. You can always check this page for the latest version.
