Privacy

Updated: 26th June 2017

This privacy policy has been compiled to better serve those who are concerned with how their 'Personally Identifiable Information' (PII) is being used online. PII, as described in US privacy law and information security, is information that can be used on its own or with other information to identify, contact, or locate a single person, or to identify an individual in context. Please read our privacy policy carefully to get a clear understanding of how we collect, use, protect or otherwise handle your Personally Identifiable Information in accordance with our website.

What information do we collect?

When purchasing from Insight Games, as appropriate, we will collect your email address for the purpose of sending you your game or product, and requesting your review of your purchases.

When purchasing a physical product from Insight Games, we will collect your shipping address for the purpose of delivering your product via a third-party provider.

When "wishlisting" a product on Insight Games, we will collect your email address for the purpose of sending you updates and sales relating to the product.

When placing your products or services on Insight Games as a merchant, publisher, or artist, we will collect your email address for the purpose of authorizing access and changes to your products or services, and sending you sales and performance reports. We will also collect your Stripe account ID via Stripe's OAuth service, for the purposes of transferring money to your Stripe account for sales of your products or services. You may also choose to provide us with your phone number, which we offer as a convenience to authorize your access via a randomized pin sent via SMS.

How do we protect your information?

We use Stripe -an external PCI compliant payment gateway- to handle all credit card transactions. All such transactions are processed through Stripe and are not stored or processed on our servers.

Your personal information is contained behind secured networks and is only accessible by a limited number of persons who have special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential. In addition, all sensitive information you supply is encrypted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology.

We rely on the security of your email account to display or edit any and all of your critical data. To access or make any changes to your data, we will send you an email (or SMS) containing a time-sensitive link (or PIN, via SMS) which will grant you a small window of a few hours to view and make changes to your data. If your email account is compromised, others will have access to this data, but at that point this is probably the least of your worries.

Cookies

We use cookies to:

  • Help remember your purchases, wishlists, votes, and reviews for products offered on Insight Games.

  • Compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interactions in order to offer better site experiences and tools in the future. We may also use trusted third-party services that track this information on our behalf.

  • Protect against CSRF (Cross-Site Request Forgery) attacks.

If you turn cookies off, some of the features that make your site experience more efficient may not function properly, and you will be unable to purchase or change any data, including voting, wishlisting, or downloading, as we will be unable to verify that your use is not a CSRF attack.

Third-party disclosure

We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your Personally Identifiable Information. This does not include website hosting partners and other parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or serving our users, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We may also release information when its release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others' rights, property or safety.

Third-party links

Occasionally, at our discretion, we may include or offer third-party products or services on our website. These third-party sites have separate and independent privacy policies. We therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites. Nonetheless, we seek to protect the integrity of our site and welcome any feedback about these sites.

Email communications

Insight Games sends purchases, receipts, product information, sale information, review requests, and -if you are a merchant, publisher, or artist- reports on activity to you via email. Where appropriate email communication will contain clear and obvious instructions describing how you can opt out of receiving such emails, until such time as you make another purchase, add a product to your wishlist, or submit a product or service for hosting.
