Privacy Policy

Media

All media used on this site is in the context of a review or used to create an educational resource about a variety of video games.

We capture our own images/screenshots from our own time spent playing each game. This means we source 100% unique images from our own gameplay for educational purposes.

As such, all media on this site that is copyrighted and has been published with the fair use clause under local copyright law. However, if you see any material that you own and you want it taken down, please contact us directly and we will immediately remove this material. You can contact us on this page.

Sometimes certain pieces of media may be sourced with a reference to the original creator and/or copyright holder. Our writers are trained to capture their own images, but we can only verify this based on our knowledge of each piece of content. Because of this, it is possible that some works may reference a person or organization that doesn’t wish to be credited, or doesn’t wish to have anything displayed on this site. We take these concerns very seriously and we take action immediately upon being notified.

Cookies

If you browse our website then we may track anonymized user behavior through Google Analytics. We cannot track any personally identifying details, although any data tied to a Google Account may be anonymized & accessible (such as gender, age range, and geographic region).

This tracking is only used for us to see how many people visit the website over a period of time, and to get a broad overall view of our audience demographic. Some of this anonymous data might be accessible to advertisers through a Google Account, but Guide Strats does not personally have access to any identifying data from any of our visitors. We also do not store any personal data on our servers whatsoever.

We may also use 3rd-party cookies or 1st-party cookies as they related to on-site programmatic advertising. This data is only accessible to our advertising partners, and it’s also limited to broadly anonymized data (unless otherwise authorized by you or your account).

Embedded Content

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.).

Embedded content from other websites will behave in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Analytics

We use Google Analytics to track user behaviors and stats like total pages visited, time on page, and similar features.

These stats do not include personally identifying information and they are completely anonymous. This data is really useful so we can tell how many visitors we get in a given month and which pieces of content are the most valuable to our readers.

However if you really do not want your session analytics tracked you can use this plugin from Google. Please read more on this help page.
