GDPR Statement & Policy

GDPR Logo.png

Just4Fun supports and complies with the EU GDPR requirements.  This page will explain our data storage policies and responsibilities.




GDPR applies to your personal data stored directly by Just4Fun.  Third parties used by Just4Fun cover GDPR for your data separately (see section below).


Personal Data:


With your consent, we may hold the Steam ID, Discord ID, real name and email address for anyone who has registered with us as a member.


We may hold the Steam ID, Discord ID, chat logs, copies of your Steam profile and user names, video / audio of your game play, video / audio of your Discord usage, for anyone who has been banned from our services.


With your consent, we may hold the Steam ID, email address, for anyone who lodges an enquiry or appeal for a ban on our systems.

In common with any other forum, we may hold the chat and/or voice logs and recordings for anyone using our Discord server, including any files/data that you upload.


Length of Storage:


For members we will store your personal data until you ask us to delete that data. Only data unrelated to game play issues will be deleted.  Bans, evidence etc will not be deleted as these are needed for player control, and to allow us to answer data queries from you.


For any players banned on our servers or via bans from other servers, we will retain your data indefinitely in order to withhold access to our services, while allowing you to contact us regarding the ban.


Usage of Data:


For our members we use your personal data stored to grant access to privileges that come with membership and communicate with you about events, etc.  We do not share your personal membership data with anyone outside of our organisation.


For those banned from our services we hold your personal data detailed above to:


  1. Prevent access to our services.

  2. Hold as evidence for law enforcement agencies.

  3. Handle appeals and enquiries about the ban from the account holder.

  4. Share with other game server owners.

  5. Share with the Community Ban List (CBL).

Removal of Data:


Registered members (Or past members), may request that we remove their membership personal data by contacting us and cancelling their membership via our Discord or web site.  We will then remove that personal information.


Banned players do not have any GDPR right for removal of player ban information, as this data is needed to continue withholding access to our services, and provide evidence to authorised authorities if needed.  


Sharing of Data:


For players that we ban, we may share your Steam ID, game play records, chat logs and evidence / details of your ban(s) with other game server admin teams, the CBL and OWI.  If held, your email address will never be shared with non law-enforcement agencies.

For players not banned on our servers, we will never share your personal information outside the Just4Fun organisation.


Data Security:


All personal data that we store about you above is encrypted and stored securely with two factor authentication for all Just4Fun staff accessing that data.  The only people with access to your personal data stored are J4F admins and the third parties listed in the Data Sharing section.


Geographical Location of Stored Data:


All personal data is held on UK or EU servers.

Ban Appeals & Enquiries:

In order for us to validate that you are authorised person enquiring about your data, we require that you validate that you have administrator access to your Steam account - Once this is done, then we can discuss the data that we hold for your account.  We would be in breach of GDPR regulations if we supplied any personal data information to a person that we cannot validate being authorised to access that data.




We use third party services such as Steam, Discord, BattleMetrics, Epic Games, BattlEye, PunkBuster, Google, TenProtect, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram, WhatsApp, EAC and OWI who may or may not hold personally identifiable data on you.  If you wish to learn more, you should contact these organisations directly or read their privacy/data collection policies and terms.

Subject Access Request (SAR):


If you wish to make a subject access request then you need to meet and follow:

  1. You must be an EU or UK resident.

  2. You must validation your Steam account when applying to prove that you are the owner of the Steam account used.

  3. You must supply a full name and postal address as we send all SAR data via registered mail to the address you supply.
