We will review this Policy from time to time to make sure it is up-to-date. If we make changes, we will post the latest version here. When we make significant changes, we will let you know when you next access our Services or by other communications.
This Policy should be read along with our User Agreement at https://survarium.com/en/user-agreement ("User Agreement").
In the case of any contradictions between this Policy and our User Agreement, this Policy will prevail.
In this Policy Personal Data is any information that can identify you as an individual ("Personally Identifying Information") or that can be connected to you indirectly by linking it to Personally Identifying Information.
We also process anonymous data, aggregated or not, to analyze and produce statistics related to the habits, usage patterns, and demographics of customers as a group or as individuals. Such anonymous data does not allow the identification of the customers to which it relates. We may share anonymous data, aggregated or not, with third parties. These cases are listed in the chapter 3 hereof.
We do not check information received from you, except where such check is necessary in order for us to fulfill our obligations to you.
2. Why do we use your Personal Data
We only use your Personal Data for the following reasons:
where you've given us your consent;
where it's necessary to deliver the Services you've requested;
where it's necessary to exercise or comply with legal rights or obligations that we are subject to; or
where it is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate and legal interests of us or a third party, except where such interests are overridden by your prevailing legitimate interests and rights.
Your Personal Data may also be processed if it is required by a law enforcement or regulatory authority, body or agency or in the defense or exercise of legal claims.
In order to implement the agreement between you and us, and provide you with access to the use of our Services, we will improve, develop and implement new features to our Services, and enhance the available Services functionality. To achieve these objectives, and in compliance with applicable laws, we will collect, store, aggregate, organize, extract, compare, use, and supplement your data (these actions will/may further together be referred to as "processing"). We will also receive and pass this data as well as our automatically processed analyses of this data to our affiliates and partners (as set out below).
3. What Personal Data and how do we collect and process it
3.1. Account Data
When registering and setting up an Account (as defined in the User Agreement), we will collect your e-mail.

But in this case registration of Account is also required. You are required to choose password to your Account and you may choose a user name. During setup of your Account the Account is automatically assigned a number (the "ID Account") that is later used to reference your Account without directly exposing Personally Identifying Information about you. Likewise, we use API of your digital distributors' and publishers' account to reference your Account without directly exposing Personally Identifying Information about you.

3.3. Your Use of our Services and our Site

3.6. Content Recommendations

If you fall within one of the target groups, you will receive an advertisement or recommendation.

After that your Personal Data will be deleted, blocked or anonymized, as provided by applicable law.
If you terminate your User Account, your Personal Data will be marked for deletion except to the degree legal requirements or other prevailing legitimate purposes dictate a longer storage.
In certain cases Personal Data cannot be completely deleted in order to ensure the consistency of the gameplay experience (e. g. matches you have played that affect other players' matchmaking data and scores). Rather, your connection to this Personal Data will be permanently anonymized.
If you withdraw your consent on which a processing of your Personal Data is based, we will delete your Personal Data respectively without undue delay to the extent that the collection and processing of the Personal Data was based on the withdrawn consent.
If you exercise a right to object to the processing of your Personal Data, we will review your objection and delete your Personal Data that we processed for the purpose to which you objected without undue delay, unless another legal basis for processing and retaining this data exists or unless applicable law requires us to retain the data.

You also have rights in relation to the personal data we have about you, which we explain in more detail below. You can exercise these rights by getting in touch with us via our support services.
a) Right of Access
You have the right to access to your Personal Data, to ask us for a copy of your Personal Data, or to obtain your Personal Data in a structured, machine readable format. We will need to verify your identity before we are able to disclose any personal data to you.

You may request that we block or delete your Personal Data. Alternatively, you may require deletion of your Account via support service.
As a result of deleting your Account, you will lose access to our Services.
We allow you to restore your Account during a grace period of 30 (thirty) days from the moment you request deletion of your Account. This functionality allows you not to lose your Account by mistake, because of your loss of your account credentials or due to hacking. After the grace period, Personal Data associated with your account will be deleted.
In some cases, deletion of your Account, and therefore Personal Data deletion, is complicated. In these cases, considering the complexity and number of the requests, the period for Personal Data erasure may be extended, but for no longer than two further months, or your Personal Data will be anonymized.
d) Right to Restrict the use
e) Right to Object
When our processing of your Personal Data is based on legitimate interests, you have the right to object to this processing. If you object we will no longer process your Personal Data unless there are compelling and prevailing legitimate grounds for the processing, in particular if the data is necessary for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.
You can object to the processing of your Personal Data in some circumstances (in particular, where we don't have to process the data to meet a contractual or other legal requirement). Where we have asked for your consent, you may withdraw consent at any time. If you ask to withdraw your consent to processing your data by us, this will not affect any processing which has already taken place at that time.
These rights may be limited, for example, if fulfilling your request would reveal personal data about another person, or if you ask us to delete information which we are required to keep by law or have compelling legitimate interests to keep. If you have unresolved concerns, you have the right to complain to a data protection authority.
To the extent that you're unable to satisfactorily exercise any of these rights via your Account, you can do so by contacting our support service.

We encourage parents to instruct their children to never give out personal information when online.
