On Your Privacy

Godville, May 24 2018

You’ve probably been receiving a lot of emails about the changes to how your data is kept and managed. We’re tired of it too, so let’s keep it up to the point.

We’ve updated our privacy policy, in case you like reading such things. There are no meaningful changes in a way your data is stored or managed. We don’t keep much of your data to begin with and when we do, we don’t share or sell it to third parties. After all, we’re just making a cozy game, not a business monster to secretly gather some private data and sell it to the highest bidder. Hopefully the policy now explains it in a way easier to comprehend.

And what’s up with game news without new features? So here it is: from now on you can update your email as many times you need or even request deletion of your account. Hopefully, you won’t need the last one – but in case your will, head to the app’s settings in the newest Godville app (already being rolled out and will be available over the next couple days) or here.

Taking care of you, Devs.

Thank you for the update!

Would like to add this comment. I get this text on this page https://godvillegame.com/user/profile:

“One time name change has been used, but you can still submit an email change request. The request can be cancelled during 24 hours are submission. After that it will be processed automatically.”

I have never before requested a name change. Is this a bug?

Thanks again!

This is far better than the crap ton of emails I’ve been getting xD

Perfect! GV Devs are the best: this was an elegant explanation with a minimum of fuss. Thank you for choosing to announce the policy update this way.

And the e-mail address thing is pretty cool, too. ;)

Thanks Devs, those emails were getting annoying. I can’t imagine I’ll be deleting this app anytime soon I’ve had it for over 3 years now, I’m deeply attached to my hero, and his pet Firefox.

Now we need an achievement: “Deleted your account twice.” else why would one use the delete button?

Ekosh May 25 2018 16:56

More GPDR stuff, eh?

Thanks for letting me know. Much appreciate it.

Nice, now give us the ability to change our names more than once

There is a meaningful change in data management. That is, it being used more than ever to arbitrarily restrict and block game usage and activity.
