Privacy Policy

Strangeways Interactive (hereinafter, “we”, “us”, “our”, or “strangeways.net”) respects your privacy and has adopted this privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) to explain what information may be collected on through our website and apps (the “Services”), how we use this information, and under what circumstances we may disclose the information to third parties.

This Privacy Policy applies only to the personally and non-personally identifiable information we collect through our website and apps and does not apply to our collection of information from other sources.

Information Collection and Use

For a better experience, while using our Service, we may require you to provide us with certain personally identifiable information. The information that we request will be retained by us and used as described in this privacy policy.

Website Visitors and App Users

Like most website and app operators, Strangeways Interactive collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers, servers, and personal devices typically make available, such as the browser and device type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Strangeways Interactive’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how our visitors use our website and apps. From time to time, Strangeways Interactive may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Strangeways Interactive also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on http://www.strangeways.net blog posts. Strangeways Interactive only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Strangeways Interactive’s websites and users of our mobile apps choose to interact with us in ways that require us to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Strangeways Interactive gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who contact us through our website to provide their name and email address, so that we may respond to their questions or support requests.

Our website and apps do use third party services that may collect information used to identify you.
