Every time you visit our website, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the accessing device (computer, smartphone, tablet, etc.).

The following data is collected:
• Information about the browser type and version used
• The operating system of the accessing device
• The IP address of the accessing device
• Date and time of access
• Websites from which the system of the accessing device reaches our website

2. Legal basis for data processing
Legal basis for the temporary storage of data and log files is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

3. Purpose of data processing
The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable the website to be delivered to the user’s device. For this the IP address of the user must remain stored for the duration of the session.
The data is stored in log files to ensure the functionality of the website.
In addition, the data serves us to optimize the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. An evaluation of the data for marketing purposes does not take place in this context.
Our legitimate interest in data processing also lies in these purposes.

4. Storage time
The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. In the case of the collection of data for the provision of the website, this is the case when the respective session has ended.
If the data is stored in log files, this will happen after seven days at the latest. Further storage is possible. In this case, however, the IP addresses of the users are deleted or made anonymous, so that an identification of the accessing client is no longer possible.

V. Newsletter

1. Description and extent of data processing
If you register on our website for the newsletter we use this for sending you a newsletter in which we inform you at regular intervals about news in connection with Digidiced’s games (e.g. most recent information on all of Digidiced’s games, details on platforms, new games, technical specifications, etc.).

3. Purpose of data processing
In this regard, the collection of the user’s e-mail address serves to deliver the newsletter. The collection of other personal data as part of the registration process serves to prevent misuse of the services or the e-mail address used. This also constitutes our legitimate interest in the processing.

4. Storage time
The data will be deleted as soon as the purpose of its collection is no longer given. The user’s e-mail address will therefore be stored until the user objects to receiving the newsletter. If we need the user’s e-mail address for further purposes (see further details in this data privacy declaration), the deletion will be replaced by the corresponding restriction on processing, i.e. we will no longer use the e-mail address for sending the newsletter.
The other personal data collected during the registration process will generally be deleted after a period of seven days.

5. Possibility of opposition and elimination
The affected user can object to the dispatch of the newsletter at any time. For this purpose there is a corresponding link in every newsletter. Furthermore, the user can unsubscribe from the newsletter in his account settings. For the contradiction no other costs arise than the transmission costs according to the basic rates.

6. Recipients of the data and transfer to a third country
As part of sending the newsletter, we will forward your e-mail address to The Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce de Leon Ave NE, Suite 5000, Atlanta, GA 30308 USA (provider of the newsletter distribution platform “MailChimp”). The Rocket Science Group, LLC is a newsletter management service provider who takes over the dispatch of our newsletter for us as contract processors (cf. Art. 28 GDPR). Your personal data will be processed by this company in the USA on our behalf within the scope of the newsletter dispatch.
Transmission to The Rocket Science Group, LLC in the USA as a third country within the meaning of the GDPR is permissible according to Art. 44, 45 GDPR, since an appropriate level of data protection is given for the USA in relation to this company.
On the basis of Art 25 para. 6 EU-Personal data directive(1995), the EU Commission has issued an adequacy decision in the form of the so-called EU-US Privacy Shield. The EU-US Privacy Shield is an intergovernmental agreement between the United States and the European Union. This agreement regulates the protection of personal data transferred from a member state of the European Union to the USA. A self-certification procedure by the companies under the supervision of the US authorities ensures that only companies that respect data protection equivalent to that of the EU process personal data from the EU in the USA.
The Rocket Science Group, LLC is certified according to the requirements of the EU-US Privacy Shield. This ensures an adequate level of protection for the designated recipients despite the lack of an adequacy resolution by the EU Commission within the meaning of Art. 45 GDPR.
