What information is collected about you

Google Analytics

When you visit this site, Google Analytics 4 records basic data about your activity, such as your page views. This helps Andruid better understand what content visitors find most valuable.

However, this site uses an anonymized version of your IP address instead of your actual IP address.

This is done in order to protect your privacy and to comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which considers IP addresses as Personally Identifiable Information (PII).

Newsletter sign-up forms (MailerLite)

This site uses embedded forms hosted by MailerLite to enable visitors to subscribe to the Writing Games newsletter. The newsletter is delivered through MailerLite’s GDPR-Compliant email marketing platform.

Joining the newsletter is a double opt-in process, which means that if you sign up, you’ll receive an email asking you to confirm your email address. This is to prevent unintended sign-ups and spam.

Your information will never be shared with third parties and will only be used for the purpose of sending you news and updates via email. You may unsubscribe/opt out of the newsletter at any time.

To learn more about how MailerLite collects, processes, and stores data, visit the MailerLite Legal page.

Embedded web forms (Google Forms)

The Submit an event page uses an embedded Google Form to collect submissions for the public MUD Anniversaries and Community Events calendar.

Your personal information (if provided) will never be shared with third parties and will only be used for the purpose stated in the form.

For example, if you check the box to be added to the Writing Games newsletter, your nickname (if supplied) and email address will be imported into MailerLite for the purposes of delivering said newsletter.

Embedded content from other websites

Some pages on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves 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.

Mostly, this is relevant to the handful of YouTube videos embedded in some blog posts. If you choose to play those videos, it’ll be as if you’d opened them on

What rights you have over your data

If you submitted personal information about yourself through one of the form methods listed above, you can email Andruid to request to have your records permanently deleted. All such requests will be promptly honored.
