Privacy policy

We've updated our privacy policy to explain how we collect, store and handle your personal data.

How we collect your data

The data we hold about you is that which you have entered yourself: when you create an account, in your profile page, your collection, reviews and so on. The IP address you use to access the site is recorded in web server logs, as it is on virtually every website, but is not used for any purpose.

Why we collect your data

To get the best out of the site you will want to log in and enter information about your collection, for example, although this is entirely optional. If you never log in to the site nothing is collected other than your IP address, as described above.

What we use your data for

If you have created an account your email address is stored to allow you to log in and manage your account. No other personally identiable data is held. Your collection data is aggregated with that of other users to create scores and reports but it remains totally anonymous.

When we'll share your data

Brickset does not share your data with any other company or person unless you elect to allow it, for example, by making your collection public or by synchronising your account with Rebrickable. You can control your privacy settings on your profile page.

Your email address and other personally identifiable information is never shared.

Viewing your data

You can view the data you have entered on your profile and My sets pages

Your right to be forgotten

If you wish to delete your account and all the content you have generated on the site -- your collection, reviews, comments etc. -- you can do so via the 'Delete your account' link on your profile page.

Targeted advertising and analytics

When not logged in you may see adverts, some of which may be targeted. They are served by PlayWire Media. If you wish to avoid adverts, you can create an account and log into the site.

We use Google Analytics and Quantcast to produce anonymous usage statistics.

Cookies

Brickset uses cookies to enhance your experience of the site.

Want to find out more about cookies?

The website All About Cookies provides comprehensive information about cookies and how you can disable them in your browser.

Brickset cookies and 3rd party cookies

When you browse Brickset, you may receive Brickset cookies from Brickset.com, and from 3rd party sites, such as Google, PlayWire, Amazon and eBay.

You can opt out of receiving some of the 3rd party cookies and information on how to do so is provided below.

Affiliate marketing cookies

Brickset is free for everyone to use, but it costs time and money to run. It is funded by affiliate, or performance, marketing. Cookies are essential for this to function. When you click on links to Amazon, eBay and LEGO.com, for example, you may receive cookies that help the site remember that you've visited from Brickset so that your activity (buying or bidding on things) is attributed to Brickset, which then receives a small commission.

You can find out more about performance marketing and the way it uses cookies at the Internet Advertising Bureau's site, Online Performance Marketing, Cookies and You.
