DATA PROCESSING CATEGORIES

While using our Services, users/players may provide us with their data and we shall store such data and use them for the purposes and on the terms described below.

Data generated while using our Services

At the time of installing a Game, the Controller’s systems automatically acquire data concerning the user/player, such as the ID/IP address and data transmitted by the device on which the Game is being installed.

Moreover, while users/players use our Game, we gather data on the manner of use of the Game and the user’s/player’s interactions with the Game or other players, such as when and how long they play, what functions of the Game they use, information about any purchases made, progress and levels achieved.

Data generated while using Third-Party Platforms

While using our Services through Third-Party Platforms, the user/player may provide us with such data as:
• first and last name,
• nickname,
• sex,
• age,
• e-mail address,
• data concerning their physical location,
• data concerning devices on which the Game is installed,
• user’s/player’s ID/IP used to identify their account within the Game,
• Facebook ID and profile picture (provision of such data is voluntary, but it is necessary if the user/player wants to register with their Facebook account).
• Data concerning payments

The Data Controller collects data concerning payments made by the user/player for items bought in the Game.

If you buy certain items in the Game, our external partners who handle payments or settlements may collect financial and accounting information needed to carry out the payment, such as: first and last name, address, e-mail address and financial details. Our partners who handle payments or settlements do not share with us financial information such as credit card numbers, but they may provide us with non-financial data relating to your purchases, such as first and last name and items purchased.

During the game, the Mobile App may be connected through Third-Party Platforms to applications such as Apple or Google. Google and Apple applications may be connected to applications owned by other entities which process payments made by users/players. All purchases made by users/players processed by third-party applications are governed by that third party’s terms and conditions of service and privacy policy.

In case of purchases made by users/players, the Data Controller does not receive financial data about the user but may receive non-financial information related to purchases, such as first and last name and items purchased. Types of information received by the Controller depend on the given Game played and third-party applications, which means that in-game purchases are also governed by such third party’s terms and conditions of service and privacy policy.

Technical support

If you ask our technical assistance team for help, we may gather and store contact details you provide (usually your first and last name, e-mail address, player ID/IP) and data concerning your in-game activity. In order to provide support and improve Services, we will also store information you provide in any correspondence. Please note that in many cases in order to identify the user/player we will need at least the user’s/player’s ID/IP. Without such information, we will not be able to provide support nor respond to any requests related to the execution of rights to data.

Competitions and promotional campaigns

In connection with our competitions and promotional campaigns, we collect and process data in the scope necessary to conduct a given competition or campaign. Provision of such data by the user/player is voluntary, but it is necessary in order to take part in a given promotion or competition.

Data from external partners

Cherrypick receives certain information about users/players from other entities, including social media websites (e.g. Facebook) on the basis of appropriate outsourcing agreements. If a user accesses our Games through Third-Party Platforms, Cherrypick may receive certain data about the user/player from such third-party companies.
