Privacy policy

This privacy policy tells you about how we collect, use and disclose information that you may provide via this website. Whenever you use this site, you consent to the collection, use and disclosure of that information according to this policy.

We confirm to users of this site that we will not sell or rent individual user information to others and will only share information in accordance with this privacy policy and in compliance with applicable laws, regulations and UK Data Protection legislation.

What information we collect and how we use it

As is true of most websites, our web server gathers certain not personally identifiable information automatically, for example your Internet Protocol (IP) address. This site also uses "cookies", which are small text files that are stored on a user's computer. Cookies are not computer programs, and can't read other information saved on your hard drive. They cannot be used to disseminate viruses, or get a user's personal details. We use session cookies and persistent cookies. A session cookie is deleted when you close you browser. A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive for an extended period of time.

These cookies do not contain any personally identifying information but allow our website to recognize you each time you return and make it easier for you to navigate our site. You can remove persistent cookies by following directions provided in your Internet browser's "help" file. You can find more information on this subject at, including information on how to reject cookies. However certain parts of our website will not work as intended without cookies.

We also use a service that uses cookies to track non-personally identifiable information about visitors to our site in aggregate form. This information includes Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, referring/exit pages, operating system, and date/time stamp.

We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyse trends, to administer the site, to track users' movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole.

Any personal information you give us if you mail us or when writing a comment will only be used by us to respond if required. If you post or send offensive, inappropriate or objectionable content anywhere on games monitor or otherwise engage in any disruptive behaviour on our website we will use whatever information that is available to stop such behaviour. This may involve informing relevant third parties such as your e-mail/Internet provider and law enforcement agencies about the content and your behaviour.

We will not pass on your email address on to a third party for marketing purposes.
