Protecting children’s privacy is of the utmost importance to us, and we do our best to meet both EU and U.S. standards. Some of our games are expressly not directed at younger players. This includes games with an age rating (like PEGI, USK, ESRB or CIRO) for players of ages 16 and up. This means that generally, we do not expect to process the personal data of players younger than 16. If you are a parent or guardian and believe that we process your child’s personal data or guard, please contact us through one of the options provided at the beginning of this page.
