We recognize that privacy of your personal information is important. Here are details on what data is collected, why it is collected, and how it is used.

 

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

With the GDPR taking effect on May 25, 2018, it is no longer allowed to collect and process personal data from European Union (EU) residents without their consent, a certain purpose and the possibility to delete it on request.

Since online gaming characters and accounts de facto fall under that definition and are treated like so by several sources ([1], [2]), we implemented some drastic changes to respect the new regulations:

  • We will no longer be targeting the EU as a market place.
  • Any data relating to EU characters (Russian and CIS ones excluded) has been deleted and will no longer be crawled.
  • All accounts with at least one EU character (Russian and CIS ones excluded) on them have been permanently deleted and will not be able to sign in again.
  • You now have the possibility to delete your account.
  • Log files were either completely disabled and deleted where possible (web server) or IP anonymization was activated.

If necessary, there will be further action to fully comply with the GDPR.

 

Game Data

The sole purpose of this website is to collect and process the following game data from World of Warcraft (WoW) relating to Player versus Player (PvP) activities.

  • Character data, which is shown on the ladders, consisting of character names, their defining attributes (like the class), their ratings and ranks as well as their seasonal performances. Character profiles provide additional information including achievements, other characters that belong to to the same player (so called "alts"), and the amount of games that were played during a certain period of time. Some of this data is combined to derive additional statistics (like class representation or player activity).
  • Account data, which is gathered after you signed in using Blizzard's Battle.net, including creation time, last login time, your BattleTag, all max level WoW characters, followed players on arenamate and additional (optional) preferences (like your preferred region) and information (like your linked Twitch stream).

As already stated, we do not collect any of this data if it can be referred to as personal data from EU residents. Also, we do not sell any of this data to third parties.

 

Cookies

We use cookies, which are small text files placed on your computer, to store certain preferences.

  • Required cookies are necessary to keep track of your current session across the website (like remembering you successfully signed in) and to make some smaller necessary things work (like storing your cookie choices or showing you a popup only once).
  • Tracking cookies are utilized to better understand the usage of this website.
