About

Sir TapTapSir TapTap is a gaming Youtuber and full stack web developer for this very site by night, and Programmer/Systems Analyst by day, which explains why I’m so tired.

This site’s a one man job other than guest posts. My Patreon supporters help keep the lights on, thank all of you so much!

Parker

Parker is my cat and a favorite of my fans. We think he’s at least part Norwegian Forest Cat because of his big fluffy ruff. He’s extremely ‘helpful’ when I’m gaming, recording, working, or basically doing anything.

Backers of my Patreon will receive monthly updates with a selection of new Parker pictures as a minor bonus. Sometimes pictures end up on my Twitter as well of course.

Contact

My email for business or site-related contact is [email protected], I’ll never contact you from another email.

Ad Policy

This site uses ads to fund servers (and myself). Ads are currently only on “guide” pages, as they are both the highest effort for myself and the highest traffic. Navigation pages will not have ads. Ads are all served from Google Adsense to avoid intrusive advertising such as bitcoin miners, autoplay audio, pop ups and the like.

I’ll never block you from using the site for using ad blockers, but it’d be great if you could support my Patreon campaign as compensation if you do. I’m also testing ad-free logins for my Patreon supporters.

Tools

What do I use for recording? I’ve set up a page I keep up to date with the hardware and software I use/recommend. I also have a Kit page, which is much flashier and has my gaming/streaming gear kits.

Guest Authors and Style

I have guest authors now so I guess I had to have a Style Guide. I generally do not seek out guest authors, but if you want to write about indie games, game design, niche Japanese games, or Hyperdimension Neptunia, be in touch.

Privacy Policy

This site uses Google Analytics which collects some anonymized visitor info, and Google Analytics has an opt-out plugin (almost every site uses GA, so if you want to opt out, it’s important to use!). Other than that the only information I gather is emails for voluntary email subscriptions, and voluntary push notification registrations; both can be canceled at any time.

Third Party Plugin Policies

Since users do not log in, almost no information beyond hit count is recorded or stored by sirtaptap.com. Below are additional privacy policy information for third party software used on this site.

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

Disqus

I use Disqus for comments, which has their own privacy policy. All traffic on this site uses HTTPS and is encrypted from client to server round-trip. Opt-out by simply not using Disqus.

Patreon

In order to enable you to use this website with Patreon services, we save certain functionally important Patreon information about you in this website if you log in with Patreon.

These include your Patreon user id, Patreon username, your first, last names and your vanity name. Additionally, the id of your campaign at Patreon and your campaign’s Patreon URL are also saved.

If you request that your data be deleted from this website, this data will also be deleted and Patreon functionality will not work. You would need to register on this website and log in to this website with Patreon again in order to re-populate this data and have Patreon functionality working again.
