Privacy Policy

Oh dear, we've become one of those scary websites with a Privacy Policy now. Don't worry, there's nothing to worry about. This is just something we decided we needed to protect both our visitors and ourselves.

Firstly, the obvious stuff. When you leave comments, sign up and post on the forum, or email us, you fill in information in fields which obviously becomes accessible to us. Any information you make publicly available is completely optional. We have absolutely no intention to pass on this information or sell it to third party companies or persons. We get lots of spam ourselves and, quite frankly, we're not interested in putting our visitors through the same thing. Any email address you provide is hidden from the public to ensure that SpamBots and Web Spiders can't actually do anything with it.

If you made a mistake or suddenly have a change of heart and decide you don't want us to have this information anymore, just contact us and we'll take care of it as soon as possible.

We also don't send out unsolicited emails ourselves. The only emails you should get connected to Dream17 in any way will be concerning threads on the forum you've subscribed to, or a response to an email you've sent us. If you leave a comment on the website concerning something about Team17 we didn't know (an unreleased game we don't have listed, for example) we may contact you then asking for more information, but we certainly won't do anything nasty with it.

And finally, when you browse our website we leave what are called "cookies" to remember things you may have entered into our site in the past that you may want to use again: your favorite website skin, your forum login, and any comment details. This way you don't have to type them in every time you come back. They're also used by Google Analytics to tell us if anyone's actually visiting us or not. All this information is completely anonymous so we'll never know who really likes purple.

Cookies are harmless and won't make your computer explode, but if you're not happy about us using them, you can disable cookies through your browsers' Settings. You can press F1 to bring up your browsers' Help info to find out how to do that. Be advised that pretty much every website on the Internet uses cookies though, so some websites you visit may not function correctly with them disabled.

So in summary: We might have some of your details, but we don't do anything horrible with them. And you might have a small file on your computer, but it doesn't do anything nasty. And you can get rid of any of it if you like.
