2.1 Personal Data

If you pay by transfer from your bank, we are required by law to keep the payment information for at least 10 years. If your payment is made via a third party service such as Paypal or others, we only save the information that the service provider has passed on to us, for example, your transaction number. With this transaction number, we can check the payment with the service provider. The service provider is responsible for saving the transaction data in this case. World of Dungeons has no influence on how third party service providers handle their data.

2.3 Player Data

Player data refers to your heroes (characters in game) information. This includes the hero name, attributes, skills, and equipment. It also includes logs of which battles have been fought by your hero, and which opponents may or may not have been struck down. This data is only saved until the player account is deleted. Statistical data regarding battles and purchases on the market are saved independently with no reference to your hero. You have access to such information by accessing Hero → Attributes, Hero → Skills or Hero → My hero in game. A portion of the data is kept from public knowledge, as it is critical for the existence of the game. If all data were openly available, World of Dungeons would be an extremely boring game.

This ensures the balance in game is not tampered with and allows for fair gameplay for all.
