1.1 Non-personal data
Non-personal data is information that can not be linked to an identifiable person. At https://www.slotsandgames.com/, we collect some non-personal data such as what device you use (mobile, tablet, desktop, etc.), the duration of your website visit, etc. We do this in order to make the user experience of this website better for you as a user by collecting statistics and then adjust our webpage to reflect the way our visitors seem to like it the most.
1.2 Personal data
Personal data is any information relating to an identifiable person. Through the use of Google Analytics, we indirectly collect your internet protocol address (IP address) in order to see where our internet traffic comes from. The reason for this is to better understand our visitors, what their location is and with the help of this information make this website better. If you do not wish to share this personal data, you can easily opt-out of Google Analytics (see link in section 1.3 below).
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.
