What Information Do We Collect?
If you are just a visitor to gamagorageekhouse.com, we do not collect any of your information or data. None.
When a visitor registers to become a Gamagora Geek, we collect the following data: name, physical address, email address, phone number and some fun tidbits. If you decide to make a purchase, we will collect your billing address and credit card information. You have the option to save that information in your account for future purchases.
While you are shopping, we’ll track products you’ve viewed so you can go back and see what you’ve been looking at.
When a Geek applies to become a Member, we collect the following additional data: birthdate, student status, occupation, and some information about you as a Geek. Once you have become a Member, we will scan the barcode on the back of your driver’s license. This barcode translates to your ODL number and your birthdate.

How Do We Use Your Data?
If you do nothing but lurk on our website, we only use your email to send you updates on blogs. You can, at any time, change your preferences for these emails from one of said emails.
When purchasing something from our online store we use different infromation for different things. We use your email to confirm orders and send you your receipts. We use your phone number to text you a confirmation of delivery or message you if there are any problems. We use your address to, you know, deliver your booty. We use your credit card information to charge you.
As a Member, we use your birthday to confirm that you are 21 or older and we use the barcode on your driver’s license as your account ID. If you enter competitions, we will use your name to announce scores and winners.
Do We Retain Your Credit Card Information on Our Site?
No. Your credit card number and security code are never stored on our website. Our payment gateway gives this sensitive information directly to the payment processor, Square. Even when you save your information for pre-orders or future purchases, your information is stored using a secure method called tokenization. Tokens store the last four digits of a card, the card brand/type, and its expiration date, mostly so you can identify which token is for which card.
How Safe is Tokenization?
Extremely. With tokenization, your actual credit card information is stored on the servers of the payment processor, not ours.
The only data saved on our site is in the form of a string of characters called a token. These tokens are designed to be useless outside the precise context they’re created for. Imagine if, when you are playing Blood Rage someone breaks out Machi Koro money to pay for an action instead of Rage. Not going to work. But with tokens, it’s even safer, someone couldn’t even use Loki to steal Rage and use it because that Rage would be linked to you specifically.
Tokens are super-specific — specific to you, specific to our website, specific to the payment processor, and specific to our merchant account with that processor. If any of those factors aren’t precise, the token won’t work as a placeholder for your payment information.
What Information Do We Share?
None. We don’t give anyone anything.
How Do You Modify or Delete Your Information?
At any point in time you can request to have your data changed or deleted by sending us a message from the Contact Us Page. Understand that if you request to have your data deleted, you will no longer be a Geek or a Member and will no longer have the access granted to those titles. You will need to re-register and/or apply to have the access reinstated.
