Data protection declaration

We take data protection seriously

The protection of your privacy in the processing of personal data is an important concern for us. When you visit our website, our web servers automatically record the IP address of your internet service provider, the website from which you visit us, the pages you visit and the date and duration of your visit. This information is mandatory for the technical transfer of the web pages and for secure server operation. A personalised evaluation of this data does not take place.

If you send us information via our contact form, this data is stored as part of the backup on our servers. Your data will be used solely to process your request. Your data will be kept strictly confidential. They will not be transferred to third parties.

Personal data

Personal data refers to data about your person. It includes your name, your address and your email address. You do not have to disclose any personal data in order to visit our website. In some cases we need your name and address and other information in order to be able to offer the requested service.

The same applies if you ask for information material or would like us to reply to an inquiry. We will always point this out in such cases. Furthermore, we will only store data that you have transmitted to us voluntarily.

If you use one of our services, we generally only collect the necessary data to offer our service to you. We may ask you for further information, but this will be voluntary. When we process personal data, we do this in order to be able to offer our service to you or to pursue our commercial goals.

Automatic storage of non-personal data

When you visit our website, we may store certain information for administrative and technical reasons. This may include: The type and version of the browser you use, date and time of access, and IP address.

If we do store this data, it will be anonymised and only used for statistical purposes or to improve our internet and online services.

This anonymised data is stored on secure systems (separate from personal data) and cannot be associated with an individual. This means that your personal data is protected at all times.

Cookies

When you visit our websites we may store information on your computer in the form of cookies. Cookies are small files that are transferred from an internet server to your browser and stored on its hard drive. In this instance only the internet protocol address is being stored – no personal data. The information that is stored in the cookies allows you to be recognised automatically during your next visit to our website, which makes it easier for you to use it.

Of course you can also visit our website without accepting cookies. If you do not want your computer to be identified at the next visit, you can reject the use of cookies by changing the settings in your browser by selecting "Reject cookies". The relevant process can be found in the manual of your browser. However, if you refuse the use of cookies, the use of some areas of our website may be limited.

Use of Google Analytics with anonymisation

Our website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, hereinafter referred to as "Google". Google Analytics uses "cookies", text files that are stored on your computer to help analyse your use of the website.

The information generated by these cookies about your use of this website (including IP address) is transmitted to a server of Google, Inc. in the US and stored there.

On our website, we use Google Analytics with the "_gat._anonymizeIp" extension. Your IP address will be truncated by Google within the member states of the European Union or in other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area and thus anonymised.

Google will use this information to analyse how you use our website, to generate reports about website activities for us and to provide further services associated with the use of the website and of the internet. Google may also pass this information on to third parties insofar as the law requires this or if third parties process the data on Google's behalf.

Under no circumstances will Google associate your IP address with other data stored by Google. You can prevent the installation of the cookies by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser; please note, however, that in this case it is possible that you will not be able to use all the functions of our website.

Google also offers a deactivation add-on for the most common browsers, which gives you more control over which data Google collects on the websites visited by you. The add-on tells the JavaScript (ga.js) of Google Analytics that no information is to be sent to Google Analytics about the website visit. However, the deactivation add-on for browsers by Google Analytics does not prevent information being sent to us or other web analysis services we may use. For more information about how to install the browser add-on, please visit: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de

If you visit our website on a mobile device (smartphone or tablet), you have to follow this link in order to prevent Google Analytics from tracking your website use. This can also be done instead of the browser add-on mentioned earlier. By clicking on this link, an opt-out cookie is installed in your browser, which is only valid for this browser and this domain. If you delete these cookies in this browser, you also delete the opt-out cookie, which means the link has to be clicked again.

Use of Twitter recommendation components

On our website we use components provided by Twitter. Twitter is a service provided by Twitter Inc., 795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA.

Each time our website receives an access request equipped with a Twitter component, the component prompts your browser to download an image of this component from Twitter. Through this process, Twitter is informed as to precisely which page of our website is being visited.

We have no control over the data that Twitter collects in the process, or over the extent of the data that Twitter collects.  To the best of our knowledge, Twitter collects the URL of each website accessed as well as the IP address of the user, but does so solely for the purpose of displaying Twitter components. For more information about the data protection policy of Twitter, visit http://twitter.com/privacy.

You may change your data privacy settings in your account settings at http://twitter.com/account/settings.

Use of "Facebook Like" components

On our website we use components provided by Facebook. Facebook.com is a service provided by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA.

Each time our website receives an access request equipped with a Facebook component, the component prompts your browser to download an image of this component from Facebook. Through this process, Facebook is informed as to precisely which page of our website is being visited.

If you access our website while logged into Facebook, Facebook recognises, using information collected by this component, which specific page you are visiting, and assigns this information to your personal account on Facebook. For example, if you click on the "Like" button or enter an appropriate comment, this information is transmitted to your personal account on Facebook and stored there. In addition, the fact that you have visited our website is given to Facebook. This happens regardless of whether you click the component or not.

If you want to stop this transmission to Facebook and storage of data about you and your behaviour on our website, you need to log out of Facebook before you visit our website. Facebook's data privacy policy gives further details of this, in particular the collection and use of data by Facebook, your rights with respect to this, and your settings options to protect your privacy: https://www.facebook.com/help/568137493302217

In addition, external tools are available on the market with which Facebook social plugins can be blocked for all major browsers by using add-ons http://webgraph.com/resources/facebookblocker/

You can find an overview of Facebook plugins at https://www.facebook.com/help/443483272359009

Use of "Sign in with Facebook" components

On our website we use components provided by Facebook. Facebook.com is a service provided by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA.

We use the "Facebook Connect" function, which is offered for Facebook.

If you want to use this feature, you will first be redirected to Facebook. There you will be prompted to sign in with your username and password. We of course do not note your login information. If you are already logged into Facebook, this step is skipped.

Facebook then tells you what data is sent to us (public profile, friends list, email address and current place of residence). Confirm with the "OK" button. With the transmitted data, we create your customer account, where we do not of course store your friends list. No additional permanent link between your customer account and your account with Facebook takes place.

Please see the Facebook data protection policy for information on the purpose and scope of data collection and its further processing and use of data by Facebook, as well as your applicable rights and settings options for protecting your privacy.

Use of Google+ recommendation components

Our website uses the "+1" button of the provider Google+ of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter referred to as "Google".

Each time our website receives an access request equipped with this "+1" component, the component prompts your browser to download an image of this component from Google. Through this process, Google is informed precisely which page of our website is being visited.

According to Google, your visit is not further analysed if you are not logged in to your Google account.

If you access our site while logged into Google and press the "+1" button, Google can collect information about your Google account, websites you recommend as well as your IP address, along with other browser-related information.

This allows your "+1" recommendation to be stored and publicised.  Your Google "+1" recommendation can then appear as a reference in other Google services, such as search results, your Google account or other places, such as on websites and ads in the internet, together with your account name and, if applicable, a picture you provided to Google.   Furthermore, Google can link your visit to our site with data stored by Google.

If you wish to minimise the collection of information by Google, you must log out of your Google account before visiting our website.

You can access Google's data protection policies relating to the "+1" button together with your profile settings at: https://developers.google.com/+/web/buttons-policy

Security

We have taken technical and organisational security measures to protect your personal information against loss, destruction, manipulation and unauthorised access. All our employees and service providers working for us are bound by the current data protection legislation.

The user data is stored in an Amazon Cloud on an Aerospike NoSQL server. It can hide parts of the data depending on the region (geofencing). This way we ensure that personal data remain bound to the player location or EU location.

Whenever we collect and process personal data, they are encrypted before they are transmitted. This means that your data cannot be misused by third parties. Our safety measures are subject to continuous improvements and our data protection policies are constantly reviewed. Please make sure that you are viewing the latest version.

Changes to our data protection policy

We reserve the right to change our data protection policy if this should prove necessary due to new technologies. Please make sure that you are viewing the latest version. If fundamental changes are made to this data protection policy, then this will be announced on our website.

Right to information / right of appeal

Please contact us at any time if you would like to know which of your personal data we store. Furthermore, you can withdraw your permission for us to collect and process your personal data at any time. In both cases, please contact us directly.
