When you sign up for an account at Board Game Crate we collect information that is only ever used in order to process your order and help define your crate preferences. When you place an order we ask for the following information:

  • Name

  • Shipping Address
  • Billing Address

This information is essential for us to process your order. This information is held for as long as your account is active us so that we can continue to send you crates.

Once your account is created you can populate your games collection and your wishlist items. To do this quickly and automatically you can tell us your Board Game Geek account username. We will then download, from Board Game Geek, the list of games you have connected to your Board Game Geek account and use this to help allocate games to the crates we supply to you. We hold on to this information for as long as your account is active with us.

We will never share the personal information you give us with third parties, except for instances where it is necessary to do so in order to process your order (eg; passing your address to our delivery partners so that they can deliver your crate)
