How Gametize is tackling GDPR

By now, your inbox might be clogged with emails about GDPR. At Gametize, we want to let you know what steps we are taking to prepare for GDPR.

GDPR, or General Data Protection Regulation, is a law on data protection and privacy which will take effect from 25 May 2018, impacting all individuals within the European Union. Nonetheless, we believe that all users on our platform have the right to understand and to control what personal data is made available to Gametize.

Here’s what you will see from us

Greater transparency

We have updated our Privacy Policy and Admin Terms of Service / End-User License Agreement (without the legalese), making them clear and easy to understand. It shares the type of data we collect and how that data is managed and processed. Be sure to read through them!

Right to be forgotten

We are providing you better access to user information removal, be it as an Administrator or a Player. You can request to delete your account at anytime simply by emailing privacy@gametize.com.

Control how we communicate with you

You will also have full control over what and how you are hearing marketing messages from us. If you’re currently receiving emails related to your activities and invitations on your games in gametize.com, you can unsubscribe to these updates by logging in as a Player via https://app.gametize.com/settings.

What do you need to do?

All you need to do is to login as an Admin or a Player (to a Project you belong to) and provide your consent for Gametize to send you marketing communications, which include but not limited to Gametize promotions such as discounts and coupon codes, or Gamification-related articles.

If you haven’t gotten around to providing your consent by 25th June 2018, we’ll have to bid our goodbyes 😦 Please note this only removes you from the marketing mailing list, while we continue to contact you on platform updates, notices and notifications of your activity on the Gametize platform.

If you have more questions on how GDPR affects Gametize and you as a user of our platform, don’t hesitate to drop us an email at privacy@gametize.com.
