Collection of Personal Data
First and foremost, you will never be asked to provide any of your personal information to access our services.
The majority of our data comes from the official Steam APIs. This information is considered to be made publicly available by you.
Collection and Use of Non-Personal Information
We also collect non-personal information - data in a form that does not permit direct association with any specific individual. We may collect, use, transfer and disclose non-personal information for any purpose. The following are some examples of non-personal information that we collect and how we may use it:
- We make use of several Steam community web APIs to collect data about your Steam account, which is used to build your profile on backpack.tf.
- We may collect information regarding the contents of your Steam Community inventories. We use this information to aggregate statistics that appear on various pages throughout the website.
This data is provided on an opt-in basis, as our ability to gather this data depends on your inventory privacy setting via the Steam Community website.
Cookies and Other Technologies
Our website also uses "cookies" and other technologies to remember personal information when you use our website. Our goal in these cases is to make your experience with our website more convenient and personal. For example, knowing your favorite "currency" can help us make this the default option when you view someone's inventory.
As is true of most websites, we gather some information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, browser type and language, Internet service provider (ISP), referring and exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data.
We use this information to understand and analyze trends, to administer the site, to learn about user behavior on the site, and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole.
