Privacy Policy

Who we are

Our website address is: https://www.tftcentral.co.uk

At TFTCentral, the privacy of our visitors is of utmost importance to us. This privacy policy document outlines the types of personal information that are received and collected by us and how it is used. If you require any more information or have any questions about our privacy policy please feel free to email us using the links in the top or bottom of the page navigation.

Log Files and Google Analytics

As is common practice across the internet, TFTCentral makes use of log files from Google Analytics. When you visit TFTCentral, we collect anonymous data for statistical purposes via Google Analytics. This data helps us gain insight into how our readers use the site. No personal data is collected through this process.

The information inside the log files includes Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, Internet Service Provider (ISP), browser type, date/time stamp, referring/exit pages, and number of clicks to analyse trends, administer the site, track user’s movement around the site, and gather demographic information. IP addresses and other such information are not linked to any information that is personally identifiable. If you would not like your usage to be tracked in this way it is possible to opt out of Google Analytics and prevent tracking cookies being placed on your computer.

Forum Access and Profiles

TFTCentral will place temporary session identification cookies on your computer if you log into the website to post on the forum / message board. These are non-tracking cookies which we have no access to – they do not send any information to us or any third party. They are used purely to allow you to access the forums without re-entering details each time to log on. By registering for the forum you are also giving explicit permission for those cookies to be placed on your computer.

In addition, we may collect some personal data if you consent to sign up to our forum that you provide during registration. This includes your username and email address which are required for registration. When editing your account profile you may also choose to provide other personal information including your location, age, gender and various social media and contact details. These are optional but by adding them to your profile you are giving explicit permission for those to also be stored against your account. Please note that we do not have sight of your account password in any form.

Please note that your IP address is recorded with each post in the event that you need to be banned from this forum or your ISP contacted. This will only happen in the event of a major violation of this agreement. Should you wish to delete your account you can contact us using the links at the top of this page.

Other Cookies

If you wish to disable cookies you may do so through your individual browser options. This action will apply universally and not just to those collected from your visit to our website. More detailed information about cookie management specific to various web browsers can be found on aboutcookies.org.

When serving adverts, these ads sometimes use cookies for retargeting (same ads outside of TFTCentral). This will depend on the ad provider and ad campaign. If you live in the EU, you must give your consent before ads can collect data required to targeting and retargeting.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles 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.

Patreon features in this website

Some posts on our news pages (www.tftcentral.co.uk/blog) are available only to subscribed Pateron supporters of TFTCentral. In order to enable you to access that “behind the scenes” content and use this website with Patreon services functionality, we save certain important Patreon information about you in this website if you log in with Patreon.

These include your Patreon user ID, Patreon username, your first name, last name and your display name. Additionally, the ID of your campaign at Patreon and your campaign’s Patreon URL are also saved.

If you request that your data be deleted from this website, this data will also be deleted and Patreon access / behind the scenes post functionality will no longer work. You would need to log in to this website with Patreon again in order to re-populate this data and have Patreon functionality working again.

How long we retain your data

For users that register on our forum or via the Patreon account discussed above, we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, you can request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Sharing of user data

TFTCentral does not sell collected user data to third parties. TFTCentral does not transfer collected user data to third parties or countries.
