Privacy Policy

Updated 25 May 2018

Game If You Are is committed to handling data in an ethical and transparent way, in line with the EU General Data Protection Regulations, which came into force on 25 May 2018. This Privacy Policy describes what data we may hold on you, how we process that data, and what we may do with this data.

Website users

Like most websites, gameifyouare.com uses cookies – small files that sit in the background of a website, which track certain activities and allow us to optimise your experience. These cookies do not show us any personally identifiable information, but rather give us a broader picture of how people interact with the website – how they find us, which pages they view, and how long they stay.

One type of cookie we sometimes use may allow us to show you targeted adverts around the web if the data suggest you may be interested in what we our our partners have to offer, and if you have given certain platforms (such as Facebook or Google) permission to show you targeted advertising. Once again, this does not allow us to personally identify or contact you. All cookie data processed in the manner described in this section of the Privacy Policy is handled not by Game If You Are, but by third party tools such as Facebook Business Manager, Google Analytics and Google AdWords.

You can disable cookies at any time by changing your browser settings.

Clients and prospects

We store the names, company names, positions and contact emails / phone numbers of those who have expressed an interested in working with Game If You Are – either by contacting Game If You Are to enquire about our services, or because, when we approached a company or individual to offer our services, they confirmed that they may be interested, either now or in the future. This is in line with GDPR because there is a mutually beneficial, legitimate business interest being pursued. However, if you would like us to destroy your details, you can request that we do so by emailing hello@gameifyouare.com and we will comply within 10 working days.

Journalists, influencers, and other media figures

Public relations is, at heart, about communicating with people. As such, we maintain databases of names, contact details, and various collected information on journalists, influencers, and other media figures who have an audience interested in video games. This is in line with GDPR because there is a mutually beneficial, legitimate business interest being pursued.

Nevertheless, we aim to go one step further and ensure that we only store and utilise the data of people who either A) have requested to be added to our database; B) given us express permission to be added to our database; or C) have either personally made their data available, or have had their employer make their data available, for the purpose of being contacted with professional and/or media-related information.

You may, at any time, request to see any information we hold on you by emailing hello@gameifyouare.com and we will reply within 10 working days. You can ask to be unsubscribed from our database at any time and we will destroy your data within 10 working days.
