Further information on data protection

Automatic storage of access data

Every time a user accesses the Lite Games website, the access data of the process is automatically stored in a log file. This is general information, such as the page from which the file was requested, the name of the file retrieved, the date and time of the call, the amount of data transferred, the protocol used and the description sent by the Internet browser and, if applicable, that of the operating system.
This general information is anonymized, i.e. it is not stored together with any of your personal data held by Lite Games and is not otherwise merged with it. They are only evaluated for statistical purposes and used to improve the content and functionality of the website. These data are not passed on to third parties for other non-commercial or commercial purposes. The access data is stored in the log file for a maximum of 10 weeks.

contact form

The contact form on our website is an easy way to contact us quickly. To enable us to contact you, some fields are marked as mandatory. If you fill in the fields and choose “Send”, you agree that your data will be sent to us with the message by e-mail. The data is not stored on the web server.

Cookies

This website also uses so-called cookies. A cookie is a text file with an identification number that is transmitted to the user’s computer and stored there together with the other data actually requested when using the website. The file is kept there for later access and serves to authenticate the user.
Since cookies are only simple files and not executable programs, they pose no danger to your computer. Cookies do not contain any personal data, so that the protection of privacy is guaranteed. Depending on the selected setting of the Internet browser by the user, the user automatically accepts cookies. However, this setting can be changed and the storage of cookies deactivated or set in such a way that the user is notified as soon as a cookie is set. However, if the use of cookies is deactivated, some functions of the website may not be available or only to a limited extent.
The Lite Games website uses temporary (so-called “session”) cookies, i.e. cookies that are only valid for the period of a so-called “session” and are automatically deleted when the browser ends. Lite Games may link to other websites where cookies may also be used.
For more information on what cookies are and how you can delete them, please visit: http://www.allaboutcookies.org/.

Use of the “Google Analytics” analysis tool

We use the Google Analytics service of Google Inc. This service enables an analysis of the use of our Internet pages and uses cookies for this purpose. For this purpose, the information generated by the cookie, such as your anonymized IP address, is transmitted on our behalf to a server of Google Inc. in the USA, stored there and evaluated. The IP address is only incompletely transmitted because the code “gat._anonymizeIp();” has been added to this website’s code. The adding of the code ensures that IP addresses are collected anonymously. Your IP address is usually made anonymous by Google Inc. reducing your IP address within the European Union or in other contracting states of the European Economic Area (EEA). In exceptional cases, your IP address will be transmitted to a Google Inc. server in the USA and anonymized there. Your IP address transmitted here will not be merged with other data from Google Inc. You can object to the collection of your data by Google Analytics at any time. You have the following options:
Most browsers automatically accept cookies. However, you can prevent the use of cookies by setting your browser; in this case, however, not all functions of the website may be available. You must make the settings separately for each browser that you use.

You can also prevent Google Inc. from collecting and processing this data by downloading and installing the browser ad on available at the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en

Alternatively or within browsers on mobile devices, please click on the following link: Disable Google Analytics. An opt-out cookie is stored on your device for our Internet pages with effect for your current browser. If you delete your cookies in this browser, you must click on that link again.

Social Media Pages

Facebook:

We operate the pages https://www.facebook.com/LiteGames/ and https://www.facebook.com/LG.Leaderboards/ as information channels for our users. If you are logged in to Facebook, Facebook will of course also receive information about your behavior on those “our” pages. If you do not want this, please don’t visit our pages and especially do not “follow” or “liken” our pages!

We do not receive any personal data from Facebook about the behaviour of individual users on our pages – we only receive aggregated statistics. For example, we can see what news article has received particular interest or whether users from a particular country are more interested in a game than others.

We also do not have accurate information about whether and what information Facebook actually collects about individual users on our pages. If you would like more information, please visit the Privacy Policy of Facebook or contact Facebook directly. Here you can also read how to get insight into your information stored by Facebook. In case of doubt you should not even visit our (or any) Facebook pages or at least use an “anonymous” browser like “Tor” (torproject.org).

MOBILE APPS

The following data can be processed by the provider when using the apps distributed by LITE Games:

Depending on the device, a device ID is assigned to identify the user. As a rule, this ID cannot be linked to personal or private data. If you enter your email address, it can be associated with your ID. When using chargeable services, it may be necessary to pass on the device ID to the respective payment service provider (e.g. Apple Inc.) in order to be able to process payment transactions. LITE Games uses the protocol data only for statistical evaluations for the purpose of operation, security and optimisation of the offer. However, LITE Games reserves the right to check the log data subsequently if there is a justified suspicion of illegal use based on concrete indications.

– Some apps contain and may also use third-party SDKs to use external services (e.g. Facebook, Flurry etc.). The use of these services is always optional as far as technically possible and is on a voluntary basis. LITE Games has only limited influence on whether and which data may be read and processed by these third parties.

– Some apps offer so-called “connected” or “social” features that can be used to play (or generally interact) with others or against other users. As a component of these features, the apps usually offer the possibility of creating a user profile. By creating such a user profile, the user accepts that (public parts) of his profile can be viewed by other users and/or generally on the Internet (e.g. screen name and avatar on public highscore lists). This is especially true if the user decides to link the user profile to a Facebook account. Such “connected”/”social” features can always be used anonymously or with a standard display name that cannot easily be resolved.

All apps use device identifiers to personalize content and ads, provide social media features, and analyze access to our app. We also share these identifiers and other information about your device with our social media partners, advertisers and analysts.

– The “Ad ID” (also known as IDFA “Identifier For Advertisers” (Apple) or GAID (Google Advertiser ID) (Google)) is a temporary identification number that we use to improve the gaming experience in online games. We also pass this ID on to integrated partners so that they can display advertising that is better tailored to your interests, for example. We finance the development and operation of our games by displaying the most appealing advertising possible. An assignment to your person or an individualization of your device beyond the device ID assigned by us is neither in our interest nor is this technically possible for us.
You can object to the use of the advertising ID generated by the device on your device (“Opt Out”). This will probably not cause you to see less advertising, but it will be less based on your usage behavior and probably less interesting/relevant to you.
To deactivate the device side forwarding of the advertising ID, go to iOS devices (Apple) under Settings/Privacy, select “Advertising” below and activate “No ad tracking”. For Android devices, please visit Settings/Account/Google/Display and activate “Deactivate Interest Related Ads”.

In accordance with the GDPR, we only automatically collect data that is indispensable for the exercise of our immediate business purpose.

The companies behind all third-party SDKs included in our apps were tested for compliance with the GDPR. Under “Personally Identifiable Data” you can see which SDKs from which companies are contained in which of our apps and, if necessary, read out personal data such as the “advertising ID” or other device data.

– To use the app, the same log data (see above) is still processed as when using the website.

By downloading and installing any of our apps you agree that you have read, understand, and unconditionally accept our general Terms & Conditions and our Privacy Policy. You especially agree that we collect and/or transfer data (including device ids, advertising-ids and IP addresses) to optimize our in-app advertising and to enhance its performance and targeting.

If you do not agree to our Terms & Conditions and our Privacy Policy, you should not use any of our apps or services in any way. You are generally prohibited from using our apps if you live in the European Union AND are under 16 years of age.
