Personally identifiable information (PII)

Logs

Information we collect

We may collect personally identifiable information about the Services you use, how you use them, and other related data. We may also collect certain non-personally identifiable information, which may include but is not limited to your IP address, the type of browser, username, and in-game messages.

How we use information we collect

We use the information we collect to provide, maintain, protect, improve, and develop current and new Services, collect statistics, such as performance measurements, and to protect us and our users. Some information may be visible to everyone, such as public messages, username, profile image, and any already public information, such as Steam statistics per game in case you let Steam share it.

We may use your information for different purposes, such as keeping you logged in, analytics, and tracking your activity to help you diagnose problems, e.g. your inability to use our Services, diagnose problems with our Services, administer our Services, communicate with you in more ways, and address fraud, spam, abuse, security, technical issues, and so forth.

When we may share your information

We may share your information for limited reasons, outlined below:

With your consent

We share your information for a particular purpose, if you agree.

For legal reasons

We will access, use, preserve, and/or disclose your information if we reasonably believe it is necessary to satisfy a valid and legally enforceable warrant, court order, law or regulation, or other judicial or administrative order.

To protect you, ourselves, and others

We, or particular users with certain administrative rights as described below, may need to share your information if we reasonably believe it is necessary to enforce limitations or investigate potential violations of our Terms of Service, this Policy, or any other our policies, such as in-game rules. We may also need to access and share information to investigate and defend ourselves against legal threats or actions.

We have certain users who may hold certain administrative rights. These rights may include access to limited amounts of non-public information and PII. This information will be used to protect you, ourselves, and others, make decisions and take actions when necessary based on it, such as applying a limitation based on your identifiers, which may include but is not limited to your SteamID, IP address, and other related information.

We may disclose your information if we reasonably believe it is necessary to prevent physical harm or death to a person, or to protect ourselves, our users, and related persons or organizations. We may also disclose your information if we reasonably believe it is necessary to detect, prevent, or otherwise assess and address potential spam, malware, fraud, abuse, unlawful activity, and ensure any limitations are properly applied.

To third party

We may use third-party service providers or contractors who help us run, improve, develop, etc our Services. We may give access to your information to these providers or contractors as needed to perform their services for us or to use their tools and services.

In case of asset transfer

If we become involved in anything involving transfer of some or all of our assets, your user information, including PII, may be included in the transferred assets.

Because you made it public

Any information you post publicly is simply public. For example, if you put your email address in our public Discord chat, that is public, and not protected by this Policy. Please think carefully about your desired level of anonymity before you disclose anything anywhere.

How we store your data

We maintain servers around the world and your information may be processed on different servers located outside of the country where you live. Regardless of where your information is processed, we apply the same protections described in this Policy.

We may keep some or all of your data for indefinite time as some may be kept for archiving purposes or may not be removed by design, such as logs; We will put appropriate measures in place, such as anonymisation if that is the case.

How long do we keep your data?

Data is stored for the shortest time possible, which takes into account the reasons why we need to process the data, as well as any legal obligations to keep the data for a fixed period of time.

  • Game server logs: We store server logs for up to 28 days. Old logs are removed on server restarts.
  • Discord ticket transcripts: We keep your previous Discord ticket transcripts for indefinite amount of time to provide you with support based on your previous tickets and make decisions.
  • Connection between your identifiers: We may keep them for indefinite amount of time to ensure all limitations are properly applied and you will not be abusing the system.
