Privacy Policy

If you require any more information or have any questions about our privacy policy, please feel free to contact us by email at thelittlegamefactory.com

At thelittlegamefactory.com we consider the privacy of our visitors to be extremely important. This privacy policy document describes in detail the types of personal information is collected and recorded by thelittlegamefactory.com and how we use it.

Log Files

Like many other Web sites, thelittlegamefactory.com makes use of log files. These files merely logs visitors to the site – usually a standard procedure for hosting companies and a part of hosting services’s analytics. The information inside the log files includes browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), date/time stamp, referring/exit pages, and possibly the number of clicks. This information is used to analyze trends, administer the site, track user’s movement around the site, and gather demographic information. Such information is not linked to any information that is personally identifiable.

General Information about Cookies, SessionStorage and LocalStorage

Cookies, SessionStorage and LocalStorage are standardised ways for a website to store a small file of letters and numbers in your browser. These are typically used to remember your preferences, perform security checks, perform analytics, to recognise you as a unique user as you move from one page to another, and to issue you with a secret key when you login that authorises you to access areas of the website that are specific to you or only viewable to logged in users.

By default, it is not possible for one website to access the first-party cookies, LocalStorage or SessionStorage stored by another website, however if two websites make requests to the same third-party web domain, then that third party can store a cookie on the one website and access it on the other (these are known as “third party cookies”). Third party cookies that contain unique values can potentially be used to track you between websites that make requests to the third party.

Cookies are typically automatically deleted when you close your browser, or when their specified expiry date is reached. SessionStorage files are automatically deleted when you close your browser. LocalStorage are deleted when the website that stored them deletes them.  You can also delete cookies and other storage from your browser at any time you like by visiting your web browser settings.

Different web browsers provide varying degrees of control over your browser’s cookies, SessionStorage and LocalStorage.  You can change your browser settings, or if necessary change to a different browser, to automatically prevent 3rd party cookies from being stored. If you are concerned about online tracking you can also change your settings to send a “Do-Not-Track” signal to request websites not to use cookies or other mechanisms to track you, or you can install a browser extension such as Disconnect or Ghostery to block 3rd party tracking cookies on websites.

LocalStorage

We use LocalStorage to show or hide our cookie message and to remember the choices made by the user.

Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service operated by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 ESW5, Ireland („Google“). Google Analytics uses so-called cookies, which are text files stored on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookies about your use of this website (including the shortened IP address) is generally transmitted to a Google server and stored there. When using Google Analytics, personal data may also be transmitted to the servers of Google LLC. in the USA.

This website uses Google Analytics exclusively with the extension „_anonymizeIp()“, which ensures an anonymization of the IP address by shortening it and excludes a direct personal relationship. As a result of the extension, your IP address will previously be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. In these exceptional cases, processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 (1) point f GDPR, on the basis of our legitimate interest in the statistical analysis of user behavior for optimization and marketing purposes.

On our behalf, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide us with other services relating to website and internet use. The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data.

You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser. However, we should point out that in that case you might not be able to use the full functionality of this website. You may permanently prevent Google from collecting data generated by cookies regarding the use of the website (including your IP address) and to process them.

As an alternative to the browser plug-in or for browsers on mobile devices, please click on the following link in order to set an opt-out cookie which disables Google Analytics to collect data on this website in the future (this opt-out cookie only functions for this browser and this domain. If you delete your cookies on this browser, you must click again on this link): Disable Google Analytics

In the event that personal data is transferred to Google LLC. based in the United States, Google LLC. is certified for the US-European data protection agreement „Privacy Shield“, which guarantees compliance with the data protection level applicable in the EU.

Use of social plugins

We use social plugins on our website provided by the social networks Facebook, Telegram, Pinterest, WhatsApp, AddThis and Twitter.

This ensures that when you visit one of our webpages containing a plugin of this kind, no connection is automatically made with the servers of the respective social network providers. Instead, when you click on one of the buttons, a new browser window will open and display the page of the respective social network so that you can, for example, click the like or share button (if necessary, after entering your login data).

Please consult the privacy policies of the social media providers to find out the purpose for and extent to which the data is collected and processed by the respective providers as well as your rights relating to this and how you can change your settings to protect your privacy.
