8. WHATDO WE USE YOUR DATA FOR AND ON WHAT LEGAL BASIS?

We only process your personal data in compliance with the relevant data protection regulations. This means that your data will only be processed if we have legal permission to do so.
This is particularly the case if the data processing isnecessary for the provision of our contractual services or is required by law, if the users have given their consent, and if it is also based on our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in the analysis, optimisation and economi coperation and security of our online offer within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1lit. f. DSGVO, in particular in the case of range measurement, creation of profiles for advertising and marketing purposes and collection of access data and use of third-party services).
We would like to point out that the legal basis for the consents is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a. and Art. 7DSGVO, the legal basis for the processing for the fulfilment of our services and implementation of contractual measures Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b. DSGVO, the legal basis for processing to fulfil our legal obligations Art. 6 para. 1 lit.c. DSGVO, and the legal basis for processing to protect our legitimate interests Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO are.
Specifically, we refer to:
Your consent to data use by FANBLAST: We process your personal data if you have given your consent for a specific purpose. We ask for your consent to data processing in the context of sending newsletters, personalised advertising, analytics and profiling. We also regularly display contextual notifications and consent pop-ups to obtain your consent for further processing activities. You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time, for example by changing your account or cookie settings. You can also unsubscribe from newsletters at any time either by using the link in our emails or in your email settings at the player account. Please note that this will not affect any data processing that was carried out before you revoked your consent.
Contract performance by FANBLAST: We process your personal data to perform or to take steps prior to the conclusion of a contract to which you are a party, e.g. when it is necessary for the creation and management of your account, to process your purchases in the online shop and related payments, as part of your support requests, to support the operation of the platform or to facilitate the delivery of requested services. If you win a non-cash prize on our platform, we also need your address to be able to deliver it to you.
Compliance with legal obligations by FANBLAST: We process your personal data to comply with our legal obligations. (Age verification, accounting/tax obligations, litigation). For example, when you purchase virtual goods in our online shop, this interactionis processed via third-party payment services. If a purchase was successful, we receive this information in the form of a digital invoice with details of the date, price and type of item purchased, payment method, VAT, etc.) . We store this to fulfil our legal record keeping obligations and to be able to produce it in the event of a dispute. Please note: We do not have access to credit cardnumbers or Card Verification Code (CVC) numbers. It is not possible to processor pass on corresponding data to third parties.
Legitimate interests of FANBLAST as well as third parties: We also process your personal data to the extent that the processing is necessary for our legitimate interests or the interests of third parties. In doing so, we take appropriate protective measures to protect your privacy.
To ensure the security of our website and prevent fraud, we store data such as your IP address and device information when you access our website. Your device data and IP address are stored and logged to enable forensic fraud and privacy investigations. Your IP address is also automatically processed by our network devices - this process is necessary to provide our website, but also to deny access to IP addresses identified as dangerous. We cannot offer to prevent this process as it would undermine the purpose (and in some cases is technically impossible - for example, we cannot prevent your IP address from being processed by our network devices). If you wish to object to this process, please do not use our website.
In order to optimise our marketing campaigns and our website, we collect information about your behaviour and preferences. This data is pseudonymised and stored separately from your account data. Although this data is stored individually, it is only accessible to the staff who need to work with it and reports that rely on the data do so in aggregate form only. In the course of campaign optimisation, we share some of this data with third-party trackers via a tracking pixel on our website. For more information on trackers and how to object to their processing, please see the Web and App Analytics section.

9. HOWLONG DO WE STORE YOUR DATA?

We will retain your personal data only for as long as is necessary to fulfil the purposes for which the data was collected or to comply with our legal obligations or to establish, exercise or defend legal claims or settle disputes. Thereafter, we will delete or anonymise your personal data.
We store data that we hold for legal reasons for as longas we are legally required to do so (up to ten years).
We store data in consideration of litigation for as long as permitted by law. This can be upto 30 years.
For logs that store networkdata, we delete the data at regular intervals - the exact time depends on the configuration rules (which may clean up the logs based on size rather than elapsed time), whether the data was part of a snapshot that ended up in a backup, and whether the logs are part of a series of logs that are normally forwarded to a central log repository. However, this will not exceed 2 years.

Generally, your personal data is stored on servers within the European Union (EU)/European Economic Area (EEA).
If, in individual cases, your personal data is stored or processed on servers outside the European Union (EU)/European Economic Area(EEA), we have taken appropriate security measures to protect your personal data when it is transferred to countries outside the EU/EEA. This includes, in particular, the application of the European Commission's standard data protection clauses.

We share data with providers in the following categories:

In this case, our interaction with the providers enables youto sign on to our gaming platform.

You can find more information in the documentation of the respective provider.

Support ticketing system. We use an external provider to handle our support ticketing for us. Every support ticket you write to us via official channels is stored with this provider.
Video streaming. In some cases, we use video streaming services to show you advertisements. Your impression of these videos is recorded by these services.
The providers we use are either located in the European Union, in a country that is considered safe according to the European Union's data protection standards, or contractually agree to treat your data with the utmost care. If the process allows, we anonymise or pseudonymise your data.
