It is Gentlemens Racing League's policy to respect your privacy regarding any
information we may collect from you across our website, https://grl.gg.
We only ask for personal information when we truly need it to provide a service to you.
We collect it by fair and lawful means, with your knowledge and consent.
We also let you know why we’re collecting it and how it will be used.
We only retain collected information for as long as necessary to provide
you with your requested service. Since running a sim racing community requires it,
this means typically as long as your account here exists. What data we store, we’ll
protect within commercially acceptable means to prevent loss and theft, as well as
unauthorised access, disclosure, copying, use or modification.
2. Collected Data
Whenever our website is accessed, logs of the accessing IP address, timestamp and
accessed resources may be created. This is to protect the integrity and our
infrastructure, a legitimate interest to us.
When signing up or logging in through Steam, the following data is acquired
(the same information is shown before signup):
- Steam name
- Steam ID
- Steam avatar (if public)
- Steam country (if public)
- Browser timezone
Points a, b and e are strictly required for usability and identification.
Points c and d are optional and aim to improve user experience.
They can be disabled by making them non-public in the Steam profile settings.
Points a, b, c and d are publicly accessible on the website once a user has signed up.
Some data entered by the user themself (e.g. reports, statements, video evidence, feedback)
will be stored and may be made public for the purpose of communication, transparency
and governing of the sim racing league.
Data resulting from and for the purpose of operating a sim racing league, such as
league registration status, qualifying- and race-results, virtual racing team, points,
or statistics thereof will be stored and publicly available.
To better understand how our website is used and what can be improved we use Google Analytics.
To this end, standard metrics like page accesses and interaction statistics are collected in a
pseudonymized fashion. This data collection can be toggled on or off in the cookie settings
For some video hosting providers we support directly embedding video evidence in reports
interaction with the embedded video. We can only prevent this by completely disabling
embedded videos, which can be done in the cookie settings
4. Third Parties
In general we do not share your data with third parties unless they were specified
above as “public” or we are required by law. There are the following exceptions:
We use Cloudflare as a reverse proxy and certificate signing authority.
This improves stability, availability and security of our website. As part of
the regular operation, the data stream between you and our server is momentarily
decrypted at one of Cloudflare’s edge servers, before being encrypted again and sent on.
Data collected through Google Analytics is shared with Google. The system is
configured such that Google will not combine with or use this data for anything
except the analytics of the website.
- Youtube, Twitch, Streamable
Data collected through an embedded video is shared with the respective hosting provider.
Our website may link to external sites that are not operated by us. Please be aware
that we have no control over the content and practices of these sites, and cannot
accept responsibility or liability for their respective privacy policies.
