Privacy Policy

This privacy policy has been compiled to better serve those who are concerned with how personal information is being used. Please read this document carefully to get a clear understanding of how we collect, use, protect or otherwise handle your information in accordance with our website.

  1. What personal information do we collect

    In order for you to create an account on Godville and use our Services, we need to collect and process certain information. Depending on your use of the Services, that may include:

    1. Information you provide by completing forms — your imaginary god name (login), hero name, their genders. We may also ask for email and password details. We may ask for this information if you register as a user of the Services, upload or submit content through Godville, or if you contact us.
    2. Details of any requests or transactions you make through the Services. Godville partners with other companies (such as Apple, Google, Microsoft, Xsolla) for payment processing, and the payment information you submit is collected and used by them in accordance with their privacy policies. Godville doesn’t store your payment information.
    3. Information about your activity on and interaction with Godville, including use of our mobile apps (such as your IP address, the type of device or browser you use, and your actions on the website).
    4. Information about the ways people visit and interact with our website, in the form of traffic analytics. You can opt out of being included in Google Analytics here.
    5. Communications you send to us (for example, when you ask for support, send us questions or comments, or report a problem).
    6. Information that you submit on or to Godville in the form of comments, contributions to forum discussions, or messages to other users, guild chat messages, personal chronicles, ideabox submissions and wiki edits.

    You may decline to provide us with your information. However, this will limit your ability to register for an account or use our Services.

    You may review, change or remove your information through your account settings.

  2. How do we use your information

    We may use the information we collect from you when you register, make a purchase, surf the website, or use certain other website features in the following ways:

    1. To create and administer your account, contact you, personalize your experience while you accessing the website.
    2. To keep your account secure and protect our Services, prevent fraud and abuse.
    3. To allow you to restore access to the website and receive security notifications on actions regarding your account
    4. To develop new products, services, features, and functionality.
    5. To allow us to better service you in responding to your customer service requests.
    6. For compliance purposes, including enforcing our Terms of Service, or other legal rights, or as may be required by applicable laws and regulations or requested by any judicial process or governmental agency.
  3. Legal basis for processing personal information

    Our legal basis for collecting and using the personal information described above will depend on the personal information concerned and the specific context in which we collect it.

    However, we will normally collect personal information from you only: a) where we need this information to serve you; b) where the processing is in our legitimate interests and not overridden by your rights; or c) where we have your consent to do so. We have a legitimate interest in operating our Services and communicating with you as necessary to provide these Services, for example when responding to your queries, improving our platform, or for the purposes of detecting or preventing illegal activities.

    In some cases, we may also have a legal obligation to collect personal information from you or may otherwise need the personal information to protect your vital interests or those of another person.

  4. How the information is shared

    Information that’s shared publicly

    When you create an account, we create a basic profile page for you on Godville. Your profile is public and your god name appears with the comments you post and messages you send on Godville. People can click your god name to view your profile page. Others will be able to see the following things:

    • Your god and hero names and genders.
    • Approximate age of the account.
    • Avatar image (optional; can be disabled in the account settings).
    • The motto and the chronicles you've written (if any).

    When choosing god name (account name) you're encouraged to choose a name that is not identifiable (e.g., DivineEntity42). You can modify certain information associated with your account (such as your god name, hero name, genders, email) from your account settings.

    Other players may see the following information submitted by you: certain god voices sent to your hero, forum posts, blog comments, certain ideabox submissions, guild council messages, wiki edits.

    Information that isn't shared publicly

    The following data will not be publicly displayed or revealed to other users:

    • Your email address (if you provided one).
    • Your password details.
    • Your IP address.
    • Any payment-related information (e.g. who gifted me these charges?).
    • Private profile information.
    • Private communications you send to us (for example, when you ask for support, send us questions or comments, or report a problem).
  5. Data retention

    Your information is retained as long as your account is active, as it is necessary to provide you with the Services or as otherwise set forth in this Policy. The information may also be retained for the purposes set out in this Policy and to the extent necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, enforce our agreements and protect legal rights.

    Some aggregated, anonymized or pseudonymized information which we may retain indefinitely may also be collected to protect the safety and security of our website, improve our Services or comply with legal obligations.

  6. Your rights and choices

    You can update your account data or delete your account from your account settings page. You can also request deletion by sending an email to with your god name, using the respective email address of the account you would like for us to delete.

    The game may send mobile and/or browser notifications related to you hero. You can update notification preferences or disable them completely in your profile settings.
