Looking at Steam's privacy policy, they don't provide an email address to reach the DPO nor do they name them:

You can contact Valve's data protection officer at the address below.

Valve Corporation
Att. Data Protection officer
P.O. Box 1688
Bellevue, WA 98009

European representative for data protection questions:

Valve GmbH
Att. Legal
Rödingsmarkt 9

Is there any requirement for them to provide an email address or name the DPO?


Articles 13 and 14 discuss what information must be provided to the data subjects, for example via a privacy policy. Art 13(1) requires:

(a) the identity and the contact details of the controller, and where applicable, of the controller's representative;

(b) the contact details of the data protection officer, where applicable;

The quote you have shown contains both the identity and contact details (postal address) of the representative, and the contact details (postal address) of the DPO. This seems to comply with the letter of the law.
