When we rely on the legitimate interest, we consider and balance any potential impact on you and your rights. For other purposes, we will ask for your consent and you will be entitled to withdraw this consent at any time with no impact on the validity of the processing before your consent has been withdrawn.

How your information is used

Your data may be used for the following purposes;

  • To carry out our obligations arising from any agreements between you and us.
  • To provide you with marketing information (including personalised and targeted marketing emails), which we feel may interest you. For example, we may send you newsletters or emails about Crystal Dagger services (this is optional, and we will ask you for permission first).

Whenever we’re personalising or targeting our marketing communications, offers and advertisements, we may profile your personal data, which means that we may use the data we collect to adjust the communication addressed to you to meet your needs.

In such cases, we do not use your data for profiling, which would constitute automated decision making that could affect your legal situation (we do not use algorithms to make decisions which would have an impact on your individual legal rights or affect your legal status or rights under the agreement between us.)

If you decide that you no longer want to receive personalised offers, product recommendations from us or any advertising news at all, you can object to this service at any time.

We might process some aggregated and general non-personal data on user behaviour (eg. Sales per region) with third party partners who work with us to provide Crystal Dagger services to you (for example, with payment providers) in order to support, improve or amend Crystal Dagger services. We may also share non-personal data with data analysis services to help us run Crystal Dagger services.

Any data you post publicly using Crystal Dagger services will be publicly available to Crystal Dagger users and others. We are not responsible for your use of any private personal data which you choose to make available via Crystal Dagger services, or the activities of other users or other third parties to whom you give or make available your data.


Third party information collection and external services

Crystal Dagger services may, from time to time contain links to and from the websites or services of third parties. Our Privacy Policy does not extend to these external sites or companies, so please refer directly to their privacy policies.

Some services may involve interacting with trusted partners – listed in the next section of this Privacy Policy.


Our Trusted Partners

In order to fulfil your order, we may need to share your information with the following Trusted Partners who were engaged by us to help deliver our services and functionalities with you. Please rest assured that we always provide our partners with the minimum data necessary for them to achieve the purpose of their cooperation with us. They may have access to limited data about you and process it on our behalf.

When required by law, we may also share your data with the police or other government authorities (including your IP address and details of suspected unlawful or fraudulent activity such as unauthorised use of payment methods and security risk scores). We will retain details of your order for six years in order to comply with HMRC requirements.

Please be aware that we are subject to various laws and we may be required to release personal data to comply with law enforcement or other legal requirements.

If, at any point, you wish to see a copy of the data we hold on you, details of how we use and store your data, or receive further details regarding your rights, you can request this from us via phone or email using the details outlined earlier in this policy. If any data we hold regarding you is incorrect, you may request a correction to your data at any time.

You may also request that we cease processing your data at any time or to object to our continued use of your data. This does not affect any processing that has been carried out prior to your request being received. It is also important to note that should you object to the processing of your data, we will be unable to fulfil the required contract between ourselves and you.

You have the right to request that we delete any or all personal data Crystal Dagger Games holds on you at any time. The only reason we would not carry out this request is if it would result in us being in breach of other legal or regulatory obligations we have, but we would always inform you at the time were this the case. You also have the right to request that we transmit all or any data we hold regarding you to a third party in a commonly used electronic format.

You have given us consent to use your personal data to contact you in the future regarding products and services from Crystal Dagger Games that we believe you may be interested in. We do not share your data for marketing purposes with any organisations outside of Crystal Dagger Games and your data will only be used for the aforementioned purposes.

You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. This wouldn’t affect any use of your data carried out up until that point but would have immediate effect when we receive your request. You can withdraw your consent by contacting us via phone or e-mail, or by writing to us at the address outlined previously in this policy.

While you do not have to give us permission to use your data, unfortunately we would be unable to fulfil your order and our ongoing contractual obligations, and we would therefore need to cancel your account with us.
