— Data Privacy —

We, Alexandr Stoian and Sascha Jost of Web Services Sascha Jost, The Acker 40, 53894 Mechernich, Germany, (or: "Quizpiggy"), respect your right to privacy.

Your trust in the correct handling of your data is an important prerequisite for the success of our offer.

We always strive to provide an entertaining game experience and excellent service. This includes informing you about the handling of personal data through this privacy policy.

Of course, we will treat all the personal information you submit as it required by applicable privacy policies. You will find all the details in this privacy policy.

Scope

This Privacy Policy applies to all Quizpiggy-operated websites and is intended for users of this offer.

This scope excludes third-party websites to which our offer may link to our offer. We are not responsible for their content and observance of data protection. Therefore, we recommend that you read the privacy policy of linked websites.

Data Categories and Collection of Data

We strive to constantly improve our products and services. That is why it is very important to us to better understand the interests and wishes of our users.

Personal Data

Personal data is information about a person's identity, such as name, address, telephone and fax number, date of birth or e-mail address.

You can use our web pages without giving any personal data. Our quizzes can be played as a "guest" without registration.

We only collect and process your personal data if we believe that you have voluntarily provided it to us (through forms, for example) in electronic or other communications.

Personal data is collected and processed when you register and use our offer.

For registration we ask the following data:

  • First given name
  • Surname
  • E-mail address
  • Password (the password is never visible in plain text)
  • Username

We need this information to manage user accounts and to contact users as needed.

Please keep in mind that we will publish your username and your score in leaderboards ("highscore rankings").

In addition, relevant data will also be used to alert to malfunctions or misuse of the offer.

The personal data will not be disclosed to third parties without your explicit consent, unless we are legally obliged to provide that information.

We process your personal data for the technical provision of our website on the basis of the following legal bases:

  • to fulfill a contract or to carry out pre-contractual measures in accordance with GDPR section 6(1) lit. b, as far as you visit our website to get information about us; and
  • to safeguard our legitimate interests in accordance with GDPR section 6(1) lit. f in order to make the website technically available to you.

Our legitimate interest is to provide you with an attractive, technically-functional and user-friendly website, as well as to take measures to protect our website from cyber risks and to prevent our website from posing cyber risks to third parties.

Recommendations / Invitations

We offer you the opportunity to recommend our quizzes. For example, you can enter the e-mail address of a recipient and we will send her an invitation to a quiz. We only process the personal data you have entered in order to send this e-mail invitation and possibly block further such messages. You can also invite friends via the social networks such as Facebook to our quizzes.

We recommend that you handle your data carefully and weigh exactly what and with whom you are communicating. The communication via our offer is subject to no content control by Quizpiggy. Nevertheless, we reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to delete entries and exclude users from further use, in particular if entries fulfill criminally relevant facts or are incompatible with our objectives.

Contact

If you send inquiries to us via the contact form, your details will be stored in the inquiry form, including the contact details you provided for the purpose of processing the request and in case of follow-up questions. We do not share this data with third parties.

We process your personal information in response to user requests based on the following legal foundations:

  • to safeguard our legitimate interests in accordance with GDPR section 6(1) lit. f

Our justified interest lies in the proper answering of customer inquiries.

Newsletter

If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on the website, we need an e-mail address from you, as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the e-mail address and that you agree to receive the newsletter. Any further information in the context of the newsletter service is voluntary and will be used to address you personally and to clarify any queries. We use this data exclusively for the delivery of the requested information and do not pass it on to third parties.

We use the so-called double-opt-in procedure for registering for the newsletter service. In this process, you will receive the newsletter or other information via e-mail only after you have clicked a confirmation link that we send you in an e-mail. This is to make sure that you are actually the owner of the registered e-mail address. For reasons of safety, the confirmation of the user's registration will only be accepted shortly after the reception of the confirmation message. Otherwise we will delete the registration from our database. No further registrations of this e-mail address will be accepted until the registered e-mail address has been confirmed.

With your consent to the storage of the data, the e-mail address and their use for sending the newsletter, a contract is concluded between you and us for the storage and provision of these data. The processing of your personal data is therefore legitimated according to GDPR section 6(1) b.

The granted consent to the storage of the data, the e-mail address and their use for sending the newsletter, you can revoke at any time, such as the "unsubscribe" link in the newsletter.

Usage data

Usage data is data that can be collected when each website is accessed. When you visit the offer, we save your usage data temporarily. We save

  • Domain name or the IP address of the requesting computer
  • File request of the client (file name and URL)
  • HTTP response code
  • Website from which you have visited us
  • Date and duration of your visit

The storage takes place to the determination of disturbances or abuse of our offer.

We do not evaluate your usage data for the creation of personal usage profiles.

We store your IP address, which you we’ll track when you sign up, log in, join a quiz, or deactivate the user account. We use them for session detection and defense against attacks.

Cookies

Our pages partly use so-called cookies. Cookies do not harm your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve to make our offer more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer. Most of the cookies we use are so-called "session cookies". They will be deleted automatically at the end of your visit.

Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. These cookies allow us to recognize your browser on your next visit. You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies. Furthermore, you can allow saving cookies only in individual cases. You can also exclude cookies generally or activate an automatic deletion of cookies when the browser is closed. However, disabling cookies may limit the functionality of this website.

Google Analytics

This website uses features of the web analytics service Google Analytics. Provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Google Analytics uses cookies. These are text files that are stored on your computer and that allow an analysis of your behavior on our website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of our website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

IP Anonymization

We have activated the function IP anonymization on this website. As a result, your IP address will be truncated by Google within member states of the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area prior to transmission to the United States. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there. On our behalf, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services related to website activity and internet usage to us.

The IP address provided by Google Analytics as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.

Browser Plug-in

You can prevent the storage of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly. However, please be aware that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. In addition, you may prevent the collection and processing of this data by Google by downloading the browser plug-in available under the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

Objection to Data Collection

You can prevent the collection of your data by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie will be set to prevent your data from being collected on future visits to this site: Deactivate Google Analytics.

For more information on how to handle user data on Google Analytics, please see the Google Privacy Policy: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=de.

Contracted Data Processing

We have made a contract data processing agreement with Google and fully implement the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities when using Google Analytics.

Demographics in Google Analytics

This website uses the demographics feature of Google Analytics. As a result, reports can be produced that contain information on the age, gender and interests of the site visitors. This data comes from interest-based advertising from Google and third-party visitor data. This data can not be assigned to a specific person. You can disable this feature at any time through the Ads settings in your Google Account, or generally prohibit Google Analytics from collecting your data as outlined in the "Objection to Data Collection" section.

Google ReCaptcha

We us this function to detect bots, e. g. when you fill in our contact forms of the provider Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Privacy Policy: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/ and opt-out: https://adssettings.google.com/authenticated code.

Google Tag Manager

We use Google Tag Manager. Google Tag Manager is a solution that lets you manage small pieces of code ("website tags") from one interface. The operating company of Google Tag Manager services is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA ("Google"). The purpose of using the Google Tag Manager is the simple technical integration of website tags, which can be used, among other things, to measure visitor volume and behavior, track the impact of online advertising and social channels, or test and optimize websites. The Google Tag Manager itself (which only implements the tags) does not use cookies and does not collect personally identifiable information. The tool triggers other tags, which may collect data. These tags have been listed and described in detail for you in this privacy statement, as well as giving you the option to exclude yourself from the respective count. Google Tag Manager does not access the data of the other tags. If disabled at the domain or cookie level, it will remain in effect for all tracking tags implemented by the Google Tag Manager.

Additional information and Google's privacy policy can be found at https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/.

  • Browser type and browser version
  • Operating system
  • Referrer URL
  • Host name of the accessing computer

These data can not be assigned to specific persons. A merge of this data with other data sources will not be done. We reserve the right to check this data retrospectively, if we become aware of specific indications for illegal use.

Advertising and Market Research

We collect, process and use personal data only as far as measures of advertising and / or market research are permitted by law. Besides that, we only process and use personal data as far as you consent to a collection, processing and use for purposes of market research or have expressly previously consented to processing and use for purposes of advertising.

Collaboration With Contract Processors and Third Parties

If, in the course of our processing, we disclose data to other persons and companies (contract processors or third parties), transmit them to them or otherwise grant them access to the data, this will only be done on the basis of a legal permit (e. g. if a transmission of the data to third parties in accordance with GDPR section 6(1) b is required to fulfill the contract), you have consented to a legal obligation or on the basis of our legitimate interests (e. g. the use of agents, Webhosters, etc.).

Unless we third parties process data based on a so-called "contract processing contract" this is done on the basis of GDPR section 28.

This site uses SSL encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of sensitive content, such as the requests you send to us as the site operator.

If SSL encryption is enabled, the data you submit to us can not be read by third parties.
