PRIVACY POLICY

GAMEREFINERY® Online Service

 

GameRefinery Oy (”GameRefinery” or “We”) respects your privacy and is dedicated to protecting the privacy of those persons using (“User(s)” or “You”) GameRefinery Online Service (“Service”). This Privacy Policy helps You understand what personally identifiable information and non-personal information We collect, and how We use it.

This Privacy Policy applies to Your use of the Service and You should read this document before using the Service. If You do not agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy, You may not use the Service.

“Personal information” refers to information, which allows a User to be specifically identified as an individual person. We will also collect “non-personal information” meaning information that cannot be used to specifically identify anyone.  Non-personal information may also result from removing the personally identifiable parts from personal information. We will collect and use both types of information and combinations of both types.

GameRefinery shall not be responsible for the actions of third parties (including people, companies or services), the content of third-party websites, the usage of the information provided by a User to such third parties, or any products or services they may offer.

Processing Personal Information

GameRefinery will only collect such personal information that is relevant for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy.

GameRefinery will process personal information for the purposes of creating Service accounts, using, maintaining, customizing and developing the Service, contacting Users, user verification, providing services, sending customer and marketing information to Users, enabling communication in the Service, conducting research, creating reports and allowing game developers to communicate with GameRefinery and to receive feedback on their games.

We will also use collected information to create a user profile link or combine it with other information we get from third parties, to help in providing the Services to You. Personal information will also be used to provide customer service and other services at your request, to send You information, including confirmations, invoices, technical notices, updates, security alerts, and support messages, as well as communicate with You about other products and services offered by GameRefinery.

GameRefinery commits to adhere to applicable laws and regulations pertaining to processing of personal information, as well as to process personal information in compliance with good processing practices. All personnel processing personal information are obliged to keep such information strictly confidential.

GameRefinery does not use automatic decision-making. However, we use profiling to provide you with individualized offers regarding the Service.

Legal basis for the processing
