How We Use Your Information
We use your information in multiple ways, typically in order to allow your purchase to be completed and your items to be delivered.
Your Personal Data
We use your name and contact information to ensure that you receive the purchases you have made on The Games Den website. We will also use this information should we need to contact you by phone, text or email regarding your order. We may also use your contact details to send you more general information regarding The Games Den if you have given permission.
If you sign up for an account on thegamesden.co.uk then we may use your date of birth and contact details to send promotional offers on your birthday if you have provided your permission.
We may also use your date of birth, name and contact information to detect and prevent fraud against you or The Games Den.
Your Payment Details
We don’t store your payment details in any format. These are used only to facilitate payment, enable us to make refunds when necessary and may also be used to detect and prevent fraud against yourself or The Games Den.
Your Analytical Details
We use analytics services to collect information about how people explore and use our website and social networks. This data may include web pages visited, The Games Den adverts clicked, IP address, device type and, if you’ve shared it, your location. This helps us discover what products and services our customers engage with, provide the right goods and services, enhance and personalise your Games Den web experience, and provide you with the latest promotional offers across the internet and social media platforms.
Customer service records and contact history
We may store notes and details of correspondence we have with you to enable us to answer any customer service query as well as to provide staff training. This allows us to provide you with a level of support that we think you, as a customer, deserve
Purchase history, Saved Baskets and Products Browsed
We may save and analyse what items you’ve browsed, saved for later or purchased. This information is used to enhance and speed up your experience on thegamesden.co.uk, allow us to complete our contract with you, and provide relevant services relating to your purchase such as item returns.
Sharing Your Information
Whilst there are some important instances where we need to share your information with a 3rd party we will never, ever sell ANY of your personal data.
It is sometimes necessary for us to share your data in the following circumstances:
- Related companies in the ‘Games Den Group’
- Companies involved in the fulfilment of any purchases made by yourself
- Law enforcement and fraud prevention agencies
- Providers of professional services such as marketing agencies, website hosts and ad partners to allow us to perform our business
Anonymised information including analytics may also be provided to 3rd parties but this information is provided in a way that does not identify you in any way.
When you create a customer account on thegamesden.co.uk you have an option to opt-in to marketing messages. These messages may be sent by email or text message and are designed to keep you up-to-date with our latest products, industry news, competitions, content and offers.

We will process your opt out request within 24 hours but please note that you may still continue to receive messages for a short while as the request is completed.
Service messages relating to your account, order or customer service query will continue to be sent and opting out of marketing communications will not stop service emails or texts (such as order status updates)
We advertise across websites and social media platforms using a variety of ad placements, designs and networks/platforms. These advertisements may utilise cookies and ad tags which may result in your seeing adverts that are based on your previous activity on thegamesden.co.uk such as orders, products browsed and saved baskets.
