Your privacy is important to us. Please read the following to better understand what information is collected and what steps are taken to keep it protected.
What information is being collected?
Currently, nothing. We only collect information if you choose to volunteer it by creating an account, which isn’t required by any means. You may enjoy our site 24/7 without ever creating an account. However, creating an account enables you to save and “heart” products. During the account creation process we collect your name, e-mail address and then ask you to choose and verify a password, all of which is encrypted and stored in our database so that even if we wanted to read it, we couldn’t. We do use Google Analytics to track and aggregate traffic to the site, which is a common practice across the whole of the internet. The info collected by Google includes nothing that is identifiable meaning nobody can identify you as an individual. However, if you choose to comment on a product using our Facebook widget integration, you do so at your own risk, so please be sure about what you say and what facebook account you are saying it from. Commenting is your choice, so choose wisely.
What are your choices in regards to stop this data collection?
If you are really concerned about your privacy, you can contact us using firstname.lastname@example.org and request that we delete your account. We will do so ASAP. As far as the tracking cookie that Google Analytics uses, you can clear your cookies after navigating away from our website. Consult the support documents of your current browser for more information regarding deleting cookies.
We do not currently have a mailing list, but we may consider launching one in the future. However, by registering with the site and providing an e-mail address, you are agreeing to opt-in to any future e-mails from Loot Nerd. Of course any e-mail we send to you will be from us directly, not any third party. Furthermore, any and all e-mails sent to you will contain an ‘unsubscribe’ link which will omit you from any future e-mails. All that being said, we’re not in the business of spamming you. We want you to enjoy our site, browse some products, and tell your friends.
