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.
DevGa.me utilizes the free version of VWO Push Notifications to allow site visitors to opt into receiving notifications via their web browser from Devga.Me. Our visitors can change their preferences and opt-out of these notifications at any time. DevGa.me does not collect email addresses via VWO nor does it capture any personally identifiable information. Each subscriber is provided a unique subscriber ID. To learn more about VWO, please visit VWO.com. To opt-out of receiving push notification after subscribing, you can visit this page for Opt-Out Instructions.
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.
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.
Log Files, Cookies & Google Analytics
devga.me makes use of log files. The information inside the log files includes internet protocol ( IP ) addresses, type of browser, Internet Service Provider ( ISP ), date/time stamp, referring/exit pages, and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the site, track user’s movement around the site, and gather demographic information. IP addresses, and other such information are not linked to any information that is personally identifiable.
Our site uses Google Analytics, a service that transmits website traffic data, to Google servers. Google Analytics does NOT identify individual users nor does it associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. devga.me uses reports provided by Google Analytics to better understand our traffic and website usage. You can opt-out of Google Analytics cookies here.
devga.me has no access to or control over these cookies that are used by third-party advertisers.

We use PushCrew to offer our readers the opportunity to receive push notifications from Devga.me in their browser. If you choose to subscribe, PushCrew will store your IP address (with the last octet removed). Pushcrew will also store the Country of the user to enable segmentation for notifications. When you receive a notification, you will have the option to manage your notification preferences. This will allow the subscriber to stop usage tracking, access their notification data, unsubscribe and delete their data.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize 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. 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.
You may contact us at GameFromScratch (by email to Mike @ Gamefromscratch [dot] com) to:
- Request access to your personal data
- Request correction of your data

We will seek to respond to your request without undue delay and will handle your request in accordance with the applicable Privacy legislation.
