Data entered by the user
Registration

In order to take advantage of all the benefits of Funatics, you must register. For this purpose, you can - as soon as this is offered - create a user account at Funatics and log in via it. For this purpose, you must enter your username, e-mail address and a password. These data are needed to set up and manage a User Account for you and to enable you to use the full range of Games. Last but not least, Funatics also needs this and possibly other data to be able to respond to requests, questions and criticism.

Facebook login

Alternatively, if this is offered, you can log in via your Facebook account. In this case, your Facebook user account will be linked to the game. By logging in via "Facebook Login", we receive information about the basic user data stored in your Facebook user account. This refers to the data that is publicly visible on the social network www.facebook.com. Of this data, we only use your e-mail address and your user name to create a user account for you. Conversely, in the case of Facebook login, data may be transferred from Funatics to your Facebook profile. Your transferred data will be stored and processed by Funatics for the purpose of registration on our server. By registering via the Facebook login, you consent to the transfer of basic user data from your Facebook profile to Funatics and, conversely, to the transfer of data for the use of Funatics to Facebook. This also applies to voluntary data in the context of using the game.

Voluntary data

In addition, Funatics offers you the possibility to personalize your profile. For example, you can enter your name, website, ICQ, AOL Instant Messenger, YIM, Windows Live, Skype, Jabber, birthday, gender, place of residence, profession, hobbies. Further, you can upload a photo of yourself on your profile page. This information is voluntary and not necessary to sign up for games. Please note that all data and photos voluntarily provided on your profile are accessible to other users. Therefore, you should carefully choose what you put on your profile and thereby share with other users.

Furthermore, if you use the Facebook login, you may share other data stored with Facebook, such as your age, profile picture, profile picture gallery and status messages, with Funatics so that you can use the full range of Funatics services.

Interactive areas

Funatics provides discussion forums or other interactive areas or services, including chat rooms and message boards, or other areas and services on the Websites and mobile applications where you or third parties can create, post or store any content, messages, comments, materials or other items ("Interactive Areas"). If you use an Interactive Area, you must be aware that these areas are publicly accessible and that any personal information you post therein or provide upon registration may be viewed by others. We cannot control how other visitors to our websites use this information. In particular, we cannot prevent unsolicited messages from being sent to you. Content posted in interactive areas may be stored indefinitely. If at any time you wish to have any posted content removed, please email us at support@funatics.de.

Of course, you alone decide which data you would like to share with us. Funatics feels obligated to do so in accordance with the principle of data economy. However, if you do not provide Funatics with certain information, you may not be able to use the Games to their full extent.

 

Data sharing

In order for you to use all of the features of the Games, we occasionally rely on services provided by contracted third-party companies and external service providers.

In the context of the games offered for mobile devices, some of your personal data, such as your Gamecenter name, is passed on to the company Apple Inc. or Google Inc. for the operation and use of the games, which also operates the store through which you downloaded these games. For example, Apple or Google will handle the sending of push notifications to you if you subscribe to such notifications.

Apple is located at - One Apple Park Way, Cupertino, California 95014, USA, - and is Safe Harbor certified. Google is located at - 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, USA, CA 94043 - and is Safe Harbor certified.

Furthermore, in order to process payments, we share your internal user identification number with the payment service provider Paymentwall Inc, Global HQ Building, 255 9th St, San Francisco, CA 94103.

In principle, your personal data will only be passed on without your express prior consent in the cases listed below:

  • If it serves to clarify illegal platform use or is necessary for legal prosecution, personal data will be forwarded to the law enforcement authorities and, if applicable, to injured third parties. However, this only happens if there are concrete indications of unlawful or abusive behavior. A transfer may also take place if this serves to enforce terms of use or other agreements. Funatics is also legally obligated to provide information to certain public authorities upon request. These are law enforcement authorities, authorities that prosecute administrative offences subject to fines and the tax authorities.

  • Occasionally, we rely on contractually affiliated third-party companies and external service providers to provide the services, for example, in the areas of sending advertising (only if you have explicitly agreed to this in advance), customer service and the processing of payments (Paymentwall, PayPal, credit card, Paysafe Card, etc.). In such cases, information is passed on to these companies or individuals to enable them to continue processing. These external service providers are carefully selected and regularly reviewed by us to ensure that your privacy is protected. The service providers may only use the data for the purposes specified by Funatics. The Service Providers are also contractually obligated by Funatics to treat your data exclusively in accordance with this Privacy Policy and German data protection laws.

  • In the course of the further development of our business, it may happen that the structure of Funatics Software GmbH changes by changing the legal form, founding, buying or selling subsidiaries, parts of the company or components. In such transactions, customer information is transferred along with the part of the company being transferred. In any transfer of personal data to third parties to the extent described above, Funatics will ensure that this is done in accordance with this Privacy Policy and the relevant data protection laws.
