So, we want to keep things nice and legal around here. We also want you to be sure that your Personally Identifiable Information (PII) is safe with us.
What personal information do we collect from the people that visit our site and/or forum?When registering on our site, as appropriate, you may be asked to enter your name, email address or other details to help you with your experience.
When posting a comment on a video, voting in a poll, or posting in the forum, your IP may be logged. We only ever use this to protect against spammers, griefers, or other bad people.
When do we collect information?We collect information from you when you register on our site, post in our forum, leave a comment on a video, and vote on a poll.
How do we use your information?We may use the information we collect from you when you register, participate in the community, surf the website, or use certain other site features in the following ways:
- To personalize your experience and maintain your site settings;
- To improve our website and figure out what's working and what's not, and;
- To ask for ratings and reviews of what we have to offer.
How do we protect your information?We rely on regular malware scanning and only use software we know and trust.
We don't have PCI-standard scanning, but, as we'll never ask for your credit card information anywhere on lowbiasgaming.net, this isn't a necessary step for us.
We may direct you to other locations (such as donating through PayPal) which may ask for your credit card, but, again, these are services we know and trust to be using such scanning.
Do we use 'cookies'?Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computer's hard drive (or the storage media of whatever other device you may be using) through your Web browser (if you allow) that enables the site's or service provider's systems to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information.
Your web browser, whether on a computer, phone, or tablet device, can be configured to prompt you whether or not to save cookies when they are received. It can also be configured to reject all cookies, resulting in none of them being saved or stored. Refer to the documentation relevant to the browser you're using to find out how to do that.
What happens if I turn off cookies?If you turn off cookies, you will not be able to remain logged in to the website, as this feature is dependent upon cookies. Certain display features, such as whether lists of games are displayed as thumbnails or in more detail, will not be remembered.
Third-Party DisclosureWe hate spam. We're sure you do, too. We also care about your privacy. As such, we won't sell, trade, or otherwise transfer your PII to any third parties unless we absolutely have to. If, for any reason, we have to, we'll make sure that they're keeping your information just as confidential as we do.
Note that we may be required to release this information when it's required to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect our or others' rights, property or safety.
We're not presently using Google AdSense or Google Analytics, but may do so at our discretion in the future.

You can always change your personal information by logging into your account.
How does our site handle Do Not Track signals?If your browser sends us a Do Not Track signal, we will do our very best to disable any analytical or statistics collection, including not loading Google Analytics (should it be in use at the time) and not counting video views. Non-statistical cookies (such as login data) will still be saved.
COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act)When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under the age of 13 years old, the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission, United States' consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children's privacy and safety online.
We require users to be at least 13 years of age to register an account on our website. We also do not specifically market anything to children under the age of 13.
Fair Information PracticesThe Fair Information Practices Principles form the backbone of privacy law in the United States and the concepts they include have played a significant role in the development of data protection laws around the globe. Understanding the Fair Information Practice Principles and how they should be implemented is critical to comply with the various privacy laws that protect personal information.
In order to be in line with Fair Information Practices we will take the following responsive action, should a data breach occur:We will notify you by e-mail, and post a message visible to the front page, within seven business days of discovering this fact.
We also agree to the Individual Redress Principle which requires that individuals have the right to legally pursue enforceable rights against data collectors and processors who fail to adhere to the law. This principle requires not only that individuals have enforceable rights against data users, but also that individuals have recourse to courts or government agencies to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.
CAN-SPAM ActThe CAN-SPAM Act is a law that sets the rules for commercial email, establishes requirements for commercial messages, gives recipients the right to have emails stopped from being sent to them, and spells out tough penalties for violations.
