Privacy policy

You might notice our privacy policy is shorter than most. That’s because we go further than the vast majority of websites to respect — and protect — your privacy.

In a nutshell:

Who we are and how to contact us

We’re Critical Chicken, a UK-based gaming blog.

Our website address is, and our email address is

The data we collect and how we use it


Like most websites, we collect analytics data about how people are using our website — so that we can keep on improving it.

We only use privacy-respecting analytics from Microanalytics; they don’t use cookies, and they don’t track your IP address or browser fingerprint. All the analytics data Microanalytics collects is aggregated, so it doesn’t tell us anything about you as an individual.

Third-party processing

The analytics data is processed in accordance with the Microanalytics privacy policy.

Embedded content from other websites

Our posts sometimes include embedded content from other websites — this could include (but isn’t limited to) videos from YouTube, or posts from Tumblr, Instagram, or Reddit.

When you view a post containing embedded content, the third-party website(s) whose content we’ve embedded may collect data about you, use cookies, and track how you interact with the embedded content. If you’re logged in on the third-party website(s), they may be able to identify you as an individual and/or use it for commercial profiling.

Unfortunately, this is something we have virtually no control over. But we’re always looking for ways to improve the situation.
