We, the operator of World of Dungeons, acknowledge and respect your privacy. We feel that we are bound to data security laws.
If you elect to pay for services within World of Dungeons via a third party payment service such as Paypal or other service, this policy does NOT apply to the third party payment service organizations.
2 Which information is acquired and how is it used?
2.1 Personal DataPersonal data is unique information pertaining to yourself. When you register at World of Dungeons, you enter your email address and a player name (pseudonym) of your choice. Your password is digitally encrypted and saved. This data, as well as your time zone, can be accessed and modified under Account → Settings. From time to time, your email address is used to inform you as a player about updates in game, or to inform you of changes to legal information such as changes to the Terms and Conditions. If you do not wish to receive notifications, you are able to set this option under Account → Settings.
2.2 Financial DataFinancial data is required to carry out the steps necessary to pay for the usage of services. 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 DataPlayer 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.
2.4 Usage DataUsage data is acquired through usage of the web site, for example page views or the browser type being used to access the services. On every log in, the IP address* and browser type are saved in addition to the time of the login. It is crucial to collect this information in order to prevent the creation of unauthorized multiple accounts (called Multi accounts) in World of Dungeons. This ensures the balance in game is not tampered with and allows for fair gameplay for all.
3 Who is the data passed on to?
When you pay for the services of World of Dungeons and make your payment via a third party service provider, that service provider is given the order processing number as well as the email account address. This is necessary for the completion of the transaction.
