In light of the European Union’s (EU) passing of its General Data Protection Regulation (GPDR), Steam began its compliance by placing all of its user data in a new support page. The portal basically categorises the account data of every Steam users and can now show you all the games you’ve ever purchased on it since the day you joined.
The portal will also let you see the number of hours you’ve clocked in for every game that you owned, along with all the achievements that you’ve unlocked over the course of each game.
To be fair, most of the data available on the support page can be dug up via other means on Steam, provided you’re diligent enough to dig up all that history. The new portal merely simplifies the process for Steam users and, to reiterate, allows the digital game distributor to comply with the new GPDR rules.
The GPDR was first introduced on 14 April 2016, and was fully implemented on 25 May 2018. It is an EU law that aims – among other things – to give control to citizens and residents over their personal data. Companies that fail to comply with the new rule run the risk of being fined up to 4% of its global annual turnover or 20 million Euros (~RM93 million), depending on which penalty is greater.
