Grounds for Data Collection
Processing of your personal information (meaning, any information which may potentially allow your identification with reasonable means; hereinafter „Personal Information“) may be necessary for the performance of our contractual obligations towards you and providing you with our services, to protect our legitimate interests and for compliance with legal and financial regulatory obligations to which we may be subjected.
We do not retain any of your Personal Information unless it is absolutely necessary to provide our services, and as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our policies. Retention periods will be determined considering the type of information that is collected and the purpose for which it is collected, bearing in mind the requirements applicable to the situation and the need to destroy outdated, unused information at the earliest reasonable time.
We may rectify, replenish or remove incomplete or inaccurate information, at any time and at our own discretion.
What information do we collect?
We do not purposefully collect, store or process any Personal Information without legitimate interest and only do so when it is required to be able to offer our services. Therefore, no permanent records with Personal Information are kept, since we do not need it unless you contact us or otherwise initiate communication with us directly or indirectly. This also means that we do not store information about user consent when user consent is not explicitly required or when storing of such information will require obtaining Personal Information from you solely for the purpose of storing the consent information. However, we may use third-party services that may need to obtain certain Personal Information and user data in order to be able to provide their services, which in turn may require user consent. In those cases, please visit the links and read their respective privacy policies carefully.
Generally, there are two types of information that may be collected by us and by the third-party services we use and/or offer:
– Non-Personal Information which does not allow us to identify our users (such information may include aggregated usage information, technical information transmitted from any user devices that are used to access our site or services, certain software and hardware information, such as type of browser and operating system, etc.; hereinafter „Non-Personal Information“). Additionally, we may collect information about user activity on our website and in our apps and games.
– Personal Information that is shared with us which can be used to identify a user with reasonable effort. This information includes your device information (Device ID, Advertising ID, IP address, approximate geolocation, and possibly unique identifiers such as MAC address or UUID of a device) as well as other information that relates to your activity through our website or services.
More information on what information is shared with whom and for what purpose can be found below (c.f. “How is the information used? With whom do we share information?”).
How do we receive information about you?
By using our software, certain anonymous information, as well as Personal Information, such as your Device ID, Advertising ID, IP address, and other device and usage data may be made available to us.
We receive your Personal Information from various sources or in different ways:
– When you voluntarily provide us your personal details (e.g. via e-mail);
– When you use or access our website in connection with your use of our services;
– When you use our apps or games;
– When you use our social media profiles;
– Possibly (but not voluntarily) from third-party providers, services and public registers.
How is the information used? With whom do we share the information?
Personal Information that you disclose with us voluntarily will only be used for the single purpose of communicating with you, and only in case you contact us. We do not initiate contact to you by ourselves. We do not offer any newsletter or other informational services to subscribe to. We do not tailor marketing based on Personal Information and do not offer personalized advertisements on our website or in our apps and games so long as you do not consent to it.
Furthermore, we use anonymous usage and device data for statistical and analytical purposes to improve our website, services and the apps and games that we offer. This is required in order to ensure that our website, apps and games function correctly and to improve the overall user experience.
We may share Personal Information with our trusted third-party providers, who may be located in different jurisdictions across the world, for any of the following purposes:
– Hosting and operating our website;
– Analyzing website usage statistics;
– Performing technical diagnostics and analytics, such as installations, crashes and in-app purchases.
We may also disclose information if we have good faith to believe that disclosure of such information is helpful or reasonably necessary to: (i) comply with any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental request; (ii) enforce our policies, including investigations of potential violations thereof; (iii) investigate, detect, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities or other wrongdoing, suspected fraud or security issues; (iv) to establish or exercise our rights to defend against legal claims; (v) prevent harm to the rights, property or safety of us, our users, yourself or any third-party; or (vi) for the purpose of collaborating with law enforcement agencies and/or in case we find it necessary in order to enforce intellectual property or other legal rights.
Third-party service providers that we share information with include Google, Unity Technologies, as well as different Ad Technology Providers and Facebook. More information on these providers can be found in the following sections (“Third-party services that we share information with”).
Third-party services that we share information with
Non-Personal Information as well as Personal Information may be shared with the following third-party service providers for the purposes mentioned above (c.f. “How is the information used? With whom do we share information?”) when using our apps or games.
We use several services offered by Google such as AdMob and the Google Mobile Ads SDK to display ads from various Ad Technology Providers, Google Analytics to track anonymous usage statistics and events such as crashes, as well as the services offered through the Play Store and the Google Play Games Services.
Additionally, Unity Analytics may be used to measure anonymous usage statistics and track In-App Purchases. In-App Purchases are realized through a Unity plugin in combination with the Play Store by Google for which Unity Analytics needs to be enabled.
Furthermore, we may use social networks and profiles to provide additional ways to contact us and share information, updates and news about our games, apps and services. A social network is a place for social meetings on the Internet, an online community, which usually allows users to communicate with each other and interact in a virtual space. A social network may serve as a platform for the exchange of opinions and experiences, or enable the Internet community to provide Personal Information or business-related information. On our website, we have integrated components of the enterprise Facebook. Facebook is a social network and allows its users to include the creation of private profiles, upload photos, and network through friend requests.
– Google Mobile Ads SDK
– Google Play Store
– Google Play Games Services

Use of script libraries (Google Web Fonts)
In order to present our contents correctly and graphically appealing across all browsers, we use script libraries and font libraries such as Google Web Fonts (https://www.google.com/webfonts) on this website. Google Web Fonts are transferred to your browser’s cache to avoid multiple loading. If your browser does not support Google Web Fonts or does not allow access, content will be displayed in a default font.
– Calling script libraries or font libraries automatically triggers a connection to the library operator. In theory, it is possible – but currently also unclear whether and, if so, for what purposes – that operators of corresponding libraries collect data.
