Who I am
I am gcrock, I am a YouTuber and this is my webpage. My website address is: https://gcrock.com. You can contact me through my email address at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What personal data my website collects and why it is collected
Most websites collect and use the data contained in log files and we do also. The information in the log files include your IP (internet protocol) address, your ISP (internet service provider), the browser you used to visit our site (such as Google Chrome), the time you visited our site and which pages you visited throughout our site. This information is only used for analytical purposes. Analytics are covered more later in this policy.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website. Only my Patrons and clan members will have member access to my website and only these members will have the option to upload any media.
I use contact forms on my website for a variety of purposes that include sending me feedback, entering competitions, entering events (streams etc) and sending me media to use (photos for my photo gallery). I will always ask for a valid email address and your Playstation Network ID. I will use your email address only to reply to you, your Playstation Network ID will only be used for purpose (if you are wanting to be a part of an upcoming stream, I will use it to add you on the Playstation). I will not share or sell any of this information to third parties. Your Playstation Network ID may be visible to others if you do enter my streams or win competitions etc. A log file with your IP (internet protocol) address will also be created automatically when using a contact form. All of the data that you fill out in a contact form is stored on my website and it is also sent to my email address at email@example.com. Once again the information that you give me is only used for the purpose explained in the contact form and I will remove all of the data from my website and email inbox once it is no longer fit for purpose. None of this information will be shared or sold to anybody. Any media that you send me may be used on my website, YouTube,Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, but you will be made fully aware of this before sending it me.
