Privacy Policy

Your privacy is critically important to us. At Go Game Guru we have a few fundamental principles:

  • We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
  • We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, or protect our rights.
  • We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.

Below is our privacy policy which incorporates these goals.

If you have questions about deleting or correcting your personal data please contact us.

Go Game Guru operates the website GoGameGuru.com. It is Go Game Guru’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Go Game Guru collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Go Game Guru’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Go Game Guru’s visitors use its website.

Go Game Guru also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on an article published on its website. Go Game Guru only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of GoGameGuru.com.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Go Game Guru’s website choose to interact with Go Game Guru in ways that require Go Game Guru to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Go Game Guru gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who create an account at GoGameGuru.com to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Go Game Guru – by purchasing products from its online store, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Go Game Guru collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Go Game Guru. Go Game Guru does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

Go Game Guru may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its website. For instance, Go Game Guru may monitor the most popular articles on GoGameGuru.com. Go Game Guru may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Go Game Guru does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Go Game Guru discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Go Game Guru’s behalf or to provide services available at Go Game Guru’s website, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Go Game Guru’s website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Go Game Guru will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Go Game Guru discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Go Game Guru believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Go Game Guru, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of Go Game Guru, or an email subscriber, and have supplied your email address, Go Game Guru may occasionally send you an email because you have requested updates, or to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Go Game Guru and our products. We primarily use our website to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Go Game Guru takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
