    Types of Data Collecte

    While using a Place for Geeks Like Me (Our Service), I may ask You, Board Game Lover to provide Me with certain personally identifiable information that can be used to contact or identify You. Personally identifiable information may include, but is not limited to:

    • Email address – Because I want to contact You! Me and no one else!
    • First name and last name – So that I know who I am contacting.
    • Phone number – After all, I will not force a Board Game Lover to create an email if one does not want it. Address, State, Province, ZIP/Postal code, City – You won’t guess, I need this data for invoicing 😉
    • Usage Data – And I need these gems to know if the Board Game Shot  is working properly. That’s all.

    • To provide a Board Game Lover with news, special offers and general information about other goods, services and events which I offer that are similar to those that you have already purchased or enquired about unless You have opted not to receive such information (Nothing by force. If You sign up, You’ll get it. And it’s just for you, nobody else. I will not even give this data to the accountant.)

    • With Business partners: We may share Your information with My business partners to offer You certain products, services or promotions (It’s just that sometimes I arrange gifts or contests for you. Then, if you win, I have to send you a prize somehow. But before I do that, I always ask!)

    Retention of Your Personal Data

    I will retain Your Cookies only for as long as is necessary for the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy. I will retain and use Your Personal Data to the extent necessary to comply with our legal obligations (for example, if I am required to retain your data to comply with applicable laws), resolve disputes, and enforce our legal agreements and policies. (To be honest,You are in control, and if You clear Your Cookies, I won’t be storing anything else. That’s how it works).

    I will retain Your other Personal Data (like Email address or Phone number) unless you instruct me to delete it. Only  in such case we won’t be able to cooperate anymore. Fortunately, this almost never happens.

    I will also retain Usage Data for internal analysis purposes. Usage Data is generally retained for a shorter period of time, except when this data is used to strengthen the security or to improve the functionality of My Website, or BGS are legally obligated to retain this data for longer time periods.

    Transfer of Your Personal Data

    Your information, including Personal Data, is processed at My operating office, in any other SAFE places where I am and the parties involved in the processing are located. It means that this information may be transferred to — and maintained on — computers located outside of Your state, province, country or other governmental jurisdiction where the data protection laws may differ than those from Your jurisdiction (because you know, I live in Poland, Mid-Europe).

    Your consent to this Privacy Policy followed by Your submission of such information represents Your agreement to that transfer.

    I will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that Your data is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Policy and no transfer of Your Personal Data to an organization or a country will take place unless there are adequate controls in place including the security of Your data and other personal information (I just won’t share your data with anyone, unless you let me and I don’t betray your trust.).

    Disclosure of Your Personal Data

    Law enforcement

    Under certain circumstances, the Company may be required to disclose Your Personal Data if required to do so by law or in response to valid requests by public authorities e.g. a court or a government agency. (When they come with a court order, only then will I consider whether I will share!)

    Other legal requirements

    BGS may disclose Your Personal Data in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to:

    • Comply with a legal obligation
    • Protect and defend the rights or property of the BGS
    • Prevent or investigate possible wrongdoing in connection with the Service
    • Protect the personal safety of Users of the Service or the public
    • Protect against legal liability

    Security of Your Personal Data

    The security of Your Personal Data is important to Me, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. While I strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect Your Personal Data, I cannot guarantee its absolute security. (But I can promise you that I will handle  them accordingly.)

    Your California Privacy Rights (California’s Shine the Light law)

    Under California Civil Code Section 1798 (California’s Shine the Light law), California residents with an established business relationship with us can request information once a year about sharing their Personal Data with third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes.

    I have no control (unfortunately) over and assume no responsibility for the content, privacy policies or practices of any third party sites or services.

    Changes to this Privacy Policy

    I may update our Privacy Policy from time to time. I will notify You of any changes by posting the new Privacy Policy on this page.
