Privacy Policy

Welcome to the Digital Games Research Association (DiGRA) website. We value your privacy and are committed to protecting your personal information. This Privacy Policy outlines our practices and your options regarding the collection and use of your information.

Information Collection and Use

We collect personal data through various interactions, including DiGRA membership sign-ups, conference registrations, and subscriptions to Memberful. This information is essential for providing membership benefits, managing events, requesting feedback from members, to protect our Services, and communicating about DiGRA-related activities. We ensure the confidentiality of your data and do not sell, rent, or disclose it to third parties without your explicit consent, except as legally required.

Specific Data Collection Points

Direct Submissions: We collect data directly from you during membership registration, event sign-ups, and similar activities.

Communication: We retain information from emails and other communications to respond to your inquiries and inform you about upcoming events and news. We do not share contact information externally.

Third-Party Information: Occasionally, we receive data from external sources, like payment processors, which we use solely to facilitate your requested transactions. Information received in this way will not be shared with other third-parties.

Security Measures

We employ robust physical, technical, and administrative safeguards to protect your data. Our website is updated on an ongoing basis to support its security. Access to personal information is limited to authorized personnel who need it to perform their job functions.
