Privacy notice

Last modified 06.09.2023.

PlayTracker is proudly based in the European Union and works with established data privacy experts to ensure your data is handled responsibly. Our team has worked hard to not only meet legal data privacy requirements, but go far beyond, giving you full transparency and control.


Unlike what you may be used to with platforms backed by giant corporations, we don't sell your personal data or use it for advertising or any other hostile nonsense of that sort.

We also take great care not to use free services that expose your usage of PlayTracker to targeted advertising elsewhere online, like Google Fonts or Facebook's share button.

What you will find in the legal text below should be expected behaviour for the functionality we offer - for example we will store a list of your games and achievements as well as any data related to them like playtime.

There are two main things you may not be aware of, but should know:

  • We use Cloudflare to make the site faster and more secure, and they may temporarily store your IP address and other technical information in order to make that happen. Read more.
  • Your data will be part of our aggregated Insight analytics. For example, the information that you played Awesome Game 3 for 20 hours will combine with thousands of other people's data and mean that Awesome Game 3 has a high popularity score on PlayTracker Insight. Read more.

PlayTracker offers a huge suite of privacy settings so you can fine tune how much you share with the whole world, just your friends, or keep for yourself. Please take a look and see if there's anything that needs adjusting.

Account deletion

All user personal data is deleted when the user deletes his account.

Our web server backups can hold the data for a maximum of 4 weeks after deletion. The backups are not used to restore individual user data.

Important information:

When you delete your account, all your data is permanently deleted from our systems. This means we cannot recover any of the information you provided, including your personal information, profile edits, statistics, etc. Unlike some social media platforms, we do not have an option for any sort of recovery after your account is deleted. Once you delete your account, it's gone for good.

Unlinking a gaming platform

Personal data associated with a particular platform is deleted by disconnecting that platform from the Playtracker account.

The only data category we can keep, if the user decides to do so, is “change of time spent in the game since the last data withdrawal”. When unlinking a particular platform, the user will be presented with an option to keep the data.


PlayTracker users have the opportunity to exercise the right to:

  • Access to personal data
  • Correction of incorrect data
  • Deleting personal data
  • Restriction of processing
  • Data portability
  • Objecting to the processing of personal data

You can request the exercise of rights:

  • Access and correction of incorrect data can be partially achieved through the online interface of the user account
  • The deletion of personal data can be done entirely through the online interface - by deleting your account
  • by sending an email to our data protection officer:
  • by sending a request to the physical address: Ulica Franje Petračića 6, 10000 Zagreb

We respond to all requests within the legal deadline of thirty days.

Objections to specific processing can be sent to the supervisory authority for the protection of personal data: Agency for the Protection of Personal Data (AZOP), at the address: Selska cesta 136, 10 000 Zagreb; email address:
