Who we are
Our website address is: https://www.boardgame-book.com. The site is maintained and administered by Owen Duffy.
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
When you contact us using a form on the site, we will receive the information you provide along with technical information such as your web browser and IP address.
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.
We may record anonymised analytical data to keep track of the number of users visiting the site, their country of origin, their operating system and browser configuration and similar details which help us understand our audience and tailor our services to their requirements.
Who we share your data with
User data is visible to the site administrator. From time to time we may employ contractors to work with us to develop the site. Those contractors may also require carefully monitored access to user data.
We will never sell your personal data or disclose it without your permission.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
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.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
How we protect your data
When you connect to this site, we use strong encryption to prevent your data being intercepted in-transit. We regularly upgrade the software running the site to incorporate new security measures.
You should install and maintain antivirus and firewall software on your own computer to guard against malicious access attempts.
What data breach procedures we have in place
In the event of a security breach, we will endeavour to promptly inform any users who may be affected, including by email and by posts on this web site and our social media platforms.
What third parties we receive data from
We receive data from MailChimp, who provide our mailing list software.
Industry regulatory disclosure requirements
Any user information is held under the terms of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) applying to residents of the European Economic Area (EEA). This legislation is intended to protect your data from misuse, and you should familiarise yourself with the rights it affords data subjects.
