Links to more information about online privacy
Whether you’re an adult without any children, a parent, a teen, or a kid, if online privacy is something you haven’t really thought about, you might want to start with some reading:
EFF’s Privacy Info from the Electronic Frontier Foundation
To enable you to leave comments on posts, subscribe to follow-up responses, contact us, and otherwise use the site’s interactive features, it is sometimes necessary to collect information about you. This information is called “personally identifiable information” (read more about personally identifiable information on Wikipedia).
Although some types of information are required to use certain features, you are not required to use any of these features. Therefore, providing personally identifiable information to pnwsteamshop.com is entirely voluntary.
PNWSteamShop.com also captures anonymous user data for the purposes of aggregate reporting and advertising. This user data is not personally identifiable.
PNW Steam Shop never shares personally identifiable information with third parties except in cases when you have opted in to doing so, such as by participating in a contest or giveaway with prizes provided by a third party.
How much information does PNWSteamShop.com collect about me?
The reports in Google Analytics help us understand broad characteristics about our readers. For example, knowing what Internet browsers our readers are using helps us design and test the site using the right technology. Knowing readers’ connection speeds helps us optimize the site’s bandwidth usage. Knowing how often readers visit helps us make the right choices about how often to post new content.
How does PNWSteamShop.com use names?
Some type of name is required if you want to register on pnwsteamshop.com, leave a comment, or use the Contact Form. You can choose to use your own name, but you can also use a nickname, screen name, or other type of anonymous username. If you leave a comment, the name you provided appears on the comment. If you use the Contact Form, your name is included in the email message that is sent to pnwsteamshop.com.
How does PNWSteamShop.com use email addresses?
An email address is required to register or use the Contact Form, and may be required if you choose not to authenticate to pnwsteamshop.com with an existing social media account such as Google or Facebook. This is part of the system that helps to make sure that anonymous spambots can’t leave spam comments or send website users junk email.
The email address you provide when you leave a comment is not displayed to other readers. We will not use this email address to contact you except in rare cases where your online privacy or safety is at risk (for example, you’ve shared inappropriate personally identifiable information in a comment). However, by using the Contact Form, you give us permission to contact you in response.
Google Analytics and advertising partners such as Amazon.com may also place a cookie on your computer to provide information on when you’ve visited pnwsteamshop.com.

These third-party cookies are governed by their respective Privacy Policies.
How does PNWSteamShop.com use IP addresses?
An IP address is the unique electronic address that your Internet service provider assigns to your computer (read more about IP addresses on Wikipedia). When you use the Contact Form, the Contact Form logs the IP address of the person who used the form. PNWSteamShop.com does not use these IP addresses in any way.
Google Analytics uses IP addresses to determine what part of the world a reader is located in. Google Analytics data is completely anonymous, and pnwsteamshop.com does not have access to any personally identifiable information collected by Google.
Does PNWSteamShop.com collect any other information?

We highly recommend that you follow good online safety practices, but if you choose to share information such as your real name, email address, or location in places that are visible to the general public (such as comment text), this is your choice.
When it’s clear that inappropriate information has been shared, we reserve the right to edit comment text to remove personally identifiable information and to contact you to recommend correcting this.
