Will GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) affect Steam?

The GDPR regulation is almost here. After May 25th all companies that opearate in European Union are bound to respect the new laws and our privacy.

Steam is going to need to get consent from EU individuals to obtain and store personally identifying information (like name, address, phone number, email etc). This should be performed by having a user “opt in” as under the GDPR regulations “consent cannot be assumed”. From now on every single company has to communicate in a clear and understandable way why the want our data and what are they going to do with it (or won’t do), how they protect it, where do they keep it etc.

Steam GDPR, Steam alternatives

If you’re an EU citizen here are your GDPR rights:

  • Ask what information is held on you and obtain copies of your information

  • Ask if your data has been passed to any other 3rd party or affiliate and obtain their details

  • Right to be forgotten – Request that all (or some) data be removed from their system

There is no guarantees that Steam will abide those rules. Most large companies and data controllers like Google or Amazon have only chosen to update their Privacy Policies, which is not 100% GDPR compliant. We’ll see how this turns out in the following weeks.

Speaking of, our website also gathers some data like cookies, e-mail accounts (if you’ve ever join one of our giveaways, newsletter or simply left a comment etc.). From now on when you login to your account on SteamUnpowered you will have to Agree to Terms of Use Agreement & Privacy Policy. Newsletter always worked as opt in so if you’ve already signed-up for it you can always unsubscribe (look for that option at the bottom of the newsletter).

From now on you can also remove the data you’ve put in here by going into Tools>Erase personal data. To delete your account from SteamUnpowered simply go to your profile settings. If you have any other problem please send me a message on Steam.

Steam removes games with pornographic content

It seems that in around two weeks Steam is going to remove (some) games with pornographic content, even though those games don’t really contain any of that (officially). The developers of Mutiny have even discounted their game so that people could buy it before it disappears completely from Steam – you’ll still be able to play that game and download it from you account, even though it won’t be in the Steam store anymore.

steam porno, anime, games, hentai

According to that developers the new change violates what Valve Software agreed to before. In fact, the whole Visual Novel genre on Steam is feeling the effects of that decision. Every developer, either big or small, is having their games pulled. The message is clear, if your game contains any kind of anime-inspired sexy themes you’re in trouble while other games like Mass Effect, Dragon Age, The Witcher 3 (seriously) and others stay intact.

This is something that shouldn’t be happening at all, what do you guys think? Where will the anime games go? GOG? Origin?

Update: Turns out that Valve’s plan is currently on hold as they have sent out letters to game developers. By the way it’s probably this website’s fault that this even started. Here they even mention The Witcher 3.

Weird times when you can just watch hundreds of movies with violent killing scenes and weapons but if they show you a part of a woman’s titty it’s the end of the world. Since when is sex worse than violence and killing? What the fuck America?
