Privacy Policy

Thank you for taking the time to review my privacy policy. As my general rule, I try to avoid any need for personal information. I love to hear that you enjoy games, but I do not need to know who you are. However, some (personal) data is necessary for Codalyn to operate as a business. On this page I explain what information may be collected on my behalf and how to unsubscribe from mailings or opt-out of analytics tracking.

Newsletter and press mailing list

I use MailChimp to send out my newsletter and press mailings.

If you are subscribed to my newsletter, MailChimp has your email address. Your email address is only used to send you the newsletter. You may, of course, unsubscribe from my newsletter at any time. Your email address is not retained after you have unsubscribed.

When you are subscribed to the press mailing list, MailChimp also knows your name and the outlet you work for. Press mailings are sent out infrequently, only when I have a game announcement or other important news to share. To stop receiving press mailings, unsubscribe here.

Website analytics

I use Google Analytics tracking cookies to help me understand how people are navigating this site. To ensure that tracking is completely anonymous, the last octet of your IP address has been masked. To further protect your privacy, I have set the data retention period to the minimum offered by Google and disabled advertising features as well as all forms of data sharing.

Game analytics

My games may collect anonymous performance and progression data that help me fix bugs and understand how people play. You are offered the choice to opt-in for this data collection on the first run of the game and may opt-out again at any time by unchecking the “Collect anonymous performance and progression data” checkbox in the main menu.

Stable Orbit used Unity Analytics from the launch of Early Access until the end of March, 2018. I no longer have access to this data.

Buyer location

Due to the 2015 VAT MOSS regulations, EU-based sellers require evidence of buyer location for all digital goods purchases. Buyer location is collected on my behalf by Itch.io, Steam, The Humble Store and other stores that sell my games. I do not have direct access to this information.

Data access and erasure

Under the GDPR, EU citizens have the right to access their personal data or have their personal data erased. I generally do not have any identifiable personal data beyond your email address and then only so long as you are subscribed to my newsletter. Nonetheless, if you wish to obtain a copy of your personal data or have it erased from my records, please contact me at hello@codalyn.com.
