Privacy Policy

Pursuant to EC regulation 2016/679 (GDPR) and Legislative Decree 101/2018, we declare that the data controller is the operator of this site.

In application of the aforementioned legislative decree, pursuant to art. 13, we inform you that:

the personal data acquired will be used, also with the aid of electronic and / or automated means, exclusively for the performance and management of the activities related to the purposes of this website.

Data processed and purposes

The site www.gaminghouse.community ("The Site") may register the IP address of visitors in its logs on its servers for security reasons. It can also record data in its database from certain data forms (such as comment forms). Since the site still wants to guarantee the greatest possible security to each user, it is advisable not to use sensitive data (such as name and surname) when possible.

Services used

The site uses Matomo service with anonymized IPs for statistical and analytical purposes. The data collected with Matomo is stored locally on the server.

It also uses video embedding from Youtube, which may set third party cookies on visitors' browser.

Since November 7th, 2021, the site has added Google Adsense to the pages in order to display ads. We invite users who care about their privacy to install an adblock extension (like "uBlock") or to opt-out from Google's website.

On August 22nd, 2022 the Google Adsense banners have been removed. They have been replaced with static banners (JPEG and PNG without tracking) provided by Keliweb.

On July 21, 2022, the chat service based on Live Chat Helper, an open source software installed on a server controlled by GamingHouse (chat.codinghouse.it), was added. The data is saved locally on a MySQL database with Italian hosting.

Information on data security and confidentiality

The site undertakes to maintain the maximum confidentiality on the data provided, which may in any case be disclosed to the judicial authorities in the case of offenses. It is therefore advisable to avoid the use of offensive, violent, racist or otherwise inappropriate language in order not to incur any sanctions by the legal bodies.

The site guarantees that the data will be encrypted, when the data itself does not need to be publicly visible (passwords, emails, phisical addresses) but cannot guarantee the encryption of data needed to be published (like the username submitted in a comment form)

However, the user has the possibility to disable cookies in order not to use the aforementioned services.

Data retention

The data can be kept for a period of up to 10 years and only for the intended purposes. The site does not use the stored data for marketing purposes and does not sell the data to third parties.

Rights

Users are informed that they have the following rights regarding the retention of their personal data:

  • Right of access
  • Right to erasure (or right to be forgotten)
  • Right to limit the processing
  • Right to data portability
