Privacy Policy


This privacy policy will inform you as to how we collect your personal data when you visit https://gamescout.co.uk.

Any information we store is held securely and for the minimum period necessary to improve our platforms.

Non-Personal Data

This data is used for statistical and analytical purposes and is combined with other users of this website. This data helps us improve our website by allowing us to learn about how users act when they visit our platform. The anonymous data includes, but is not limited to, device type, location, and browser type.

Embedded content from other websites

GameScout articles may contain embedded content in the form of videos, images, and external links. Embedded content from other websites behaves in the same way as if the visitor has visited the other website. These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

GameScout is not responsible for the content or privacy policies of these external websites. If you’re redirected to our platform from a third-party website, their privacy policy does not apply to GameScout. It is recommended that you read the privacy policies of any other website that you visit.


Your information may be used to show adverts that you may be interested in. These adverts may be delivered by a third-party, or by GameScout. The adverts you see may be determined by your cookie consent.

How long we retain your data

If you choose to leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.


If you leave a comment on our site you may opt in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. This expires after 24 hours
