What personal data we collect and why we collect it
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.
If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.
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.
Who we share your data with
Data entered onto the mailing list signup form is shared with no third party. Analytics data, gathered through your use of the website, is shared with Google via the Google Analytics service, for improvement of the website and the games I create.
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, if you enter any. 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.
For data amendment or removal requests, please email the site administrator at [email protected] for assistance, or contact us via the contact details for Brainbox.cc.

Your contact information
How we protect your data
Your data is stored on our secure server, and within password a protected encrypted database. This is only accessible to those who need to access it, e.g. the developer of the game on this website.
What data breach procedures we have in place
In the event of any data breach, you will be informed via email within 24 hours of the breach. As the data we store on this site is minimal, the only pieces of information that could be compromised by such a breach if you are on our mailing list would be your name (if you provided it) and your email address.
What third parties we receive data from
We receive analytics data from Google, based upon log metrics we send to them of browsing activity on our website. This is anonymised data, which is not in any way related to or linked to personal browsing habits.
