To provide the Game and the Online Service to you

As applicable, we will use information about you (including Basic Information and Analytics) for delivering our Online Services to you under the terms of use agreed between us, as well as contacting you about matters requiring your attention.

The processing of information in this way is necessary for us to record your progress and current status within a Game, and to ensure the Games deliver the features promised and function properly, so that you have the best experience when playing any one of our Games.

To help us improve the Online Services and fix any problems

We may process information about you (including Basic Information and Analytics) so that we can analyse and improve the Game and Online Services.

This processing is also necessary for us to pursue our legitimate interests of (i) ensuring that our Online Services function properly so that you and other users have the best experience when playing any of our Game(s) and using the other Online Services; (ii) improving the quality of our Online Services, and providing a better experience to our users; and (iii) identifying and correcting any bugs in the Games and Online Services.

Marketing

If you ask to be added to our mailing list, we will keep you updated with information on news and releases by email unless you would like to be removed from that list (in which case please let us know by clicking unsubscribe at the bottom of any marketing email that you receive).

In line with the legitimate interest we have in promoting our business, we will use the email address you gave us via our Website to provide you with this information.

There may also be circumstances where we will ask you for your explicit consent in respect of our use of your data in which case you will be notified at the time.

To respond to your enquiries and requests for support

We may process Basic Information and Contact Information so that we are able to properly respond to your enquiries and support requests and so you are able to use the Online Services, in accordance with the terms of use agreed between us.

Prevent Fraud and Illegal Activity

We process personal data for the legitimate interests of ensuring that use of the Online Services is lawful and non-fraudulent, does not disrupt the operation of our services, does not harass our staff or other individuals, and to enforce our legal rights and comply with our legal obligations.

Where we reasonably believe that you are or may be in breach of any of the applicable laws, we may use your personal information to inform relevant third parties such as your email/internet provider or law enforcement agencies about the content.

We work with Steam (the Valve Corporation), Microsoft (Xbox) and Sony (PlayStation) to assist us with fraud prevention and the detection of any illegal activity (e.g. to verify in-Game purchases made through Steam, Xbox or PlayStation). We also implement anti-cheat measures to detect cheating. Please see the section on “detecting cheating” for more information on this.

4. DATA SHARING

We will share your information with third parties only in the ways that are described in this Privacy Policy

Group members, personnel, suppliers or subcontractors: We keep your information confidential, but may disclose it to any member of our group (which means our subsidiaries, our ultimate holding company and its subsidiaries, as defined in section 1159 of the Companies Act 2006), our personnel, suppliers or subcontractors insofar as it is reasonably necessary for the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy. However, this is on the basis that they do not make independent use of the information, and have agreed to safeguard it.

Merger or acquisition: If we are involved in a merger, acquisition or sale of all or a portion of our assets, you will be notified via email, account message and/or a prominent notice on our website of any change in ownership or uses of this information, as well as any choices you may have regarding this information.

Required by law: In addition, we may disclose your information to the extent that we are required to do so by law (which may include to government bodies and law enforcement agencies); in connection with any legal proceedings or prospective legal proceedings; and in order to establish, exercise or defend our legal rights (including providing information to others for the purposes of fraud prevention).

Enforcement: We may also disclose your personal information to third parties in order to enforce or apply the terms of agreements, to investigate potential breaches or to protect the rights, property or safety of Double11, our customers or others.

Digital Content Stores:  The Game is made available to download via Steam (operated by the Valve Corporation), Xbox Live (operated by Microsoft) and PSN (operated by Sony) and we may disclose your personal information to Steam, Microsoft or Sony (as appropriate) for the purposes of making the Game available and facilitating any in-Game payments made through Steam, Xbox Live or PSN.

5. DETECTING CHEATING

PLEASE NOTE: We do not use automated decision-making methods which do not involve human involvement to process your information only in the ways that are described in this Privacy Policy.

We do however process your personal information in order to identify users who are cheating in the Games. Our methods are designed to detect cheating by looking out for irregularities in game play behaviour.

If users are determined to be or suspected of cheating, the following actions may be taken:

  • they will be temporarily or indefinitely suspended from playing the Game, although they will still have access to their Game account; and
  • anything acquired relating to the Game, be it through credits or real-money purchase, will be lost.

Please also see our terms of use for each Game as applicable.

In this scenario, the user will be informed of the outcome and will have the right to obtain human intervention to express his or her point of view and to contest the decision to block access to the Game. If this applies to you, please contact us at datacontroller@double11.com.

6. CONSUMER CONTROL AND OPT-OUT OPTIONS

Where you have linked your Steam, Xbox Live and/or PSN accounts to any of your social media accounts, you can unlink these at any time by changing your settings in Steam, Xbox Live or PSN (as applicable).  You can also remove access in your account settings on Facebook, Twitter and/or YouTube.

7. YOUR RIGHTS IN RELATION TO PERSONAL DATA WHICH WE PROCESS RELATING TO YOU

If you decide to delete your Game account, we will delete your account information, unless we consider it necessary to retain, within 28 days. If your account is dormant for more than 10 years, we will delete your account information, unless we consider it necessary to retain. Please note that where you have purchased in-game items or perks you may no longer have access to these if you ask us to delete your personal information (this will be the case even where you have paid for these items or perks).

9. CHILDREN

We do not use our Online Services to knowingly solicit information from, or market to, children under the age of 13.  Our terms of use prohibit users aged under 13 years from accessing our Online Services.  In the event that we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under 13 years of age, we will delete that information as quickly as possible.
