With this Privacy and Data Policy (briefly “Policy”), we would therefore like to inform you of the purposes for which and how we collect and process your data (including your personal data), when you use our game “Gibbon: Beyond the Trees” (briefly “Game”), which is available on Apple Arcade. Hence, this Policy applies and has effect in respect of this Game. Equally, we would like to inform you about any third parties who may receive your data any why.
- 1.3 The Game collects and processes data from individuals under the age of fourteen in the same way as for other users as described in this Policy for enabling us to fulfil our contractual obligations arising from you playing the Game (for details on that legal foundation, please see Article 6 (1) lit b GDPR) and to fulfil our legal and professional obligations (for details on that legal foundation, please see Article 6 (1) lit c GDPR; also see below item 2.1.2 in this respect). If you wish data of individuals under the age of fourteen to be deleted, please contact us at our contact information as set-out in item 1.1, above.
- 1.4 Should you have any questions or comments about this Policy, or should you wish to exercise your rights as a so-called “data subject” (for details on those rights, please see item 5., below), please contact us at our contact information as set-out in item 1.1, above.
- 1.5 We may make changes to this Policy from time to time in the future, which will be made available here. We encourage you to check here for any such changes from time to time, so you remain fully informed about BR’s data collection, processing and storing activities pertaining to the Game. Where appropriate, we may also notify you of such changes through the Game.
- 2.1 Game Progress, Achievements and Savegames
- 2.1.1 The Game collects information about your progress in the Game, that is which level you have reached and thus also which level(s) you have already completed, which achievements (also known as trophies) you have already obtained in the Game, and the game also automatically or upon your request saves your progress in the game to savegames (alltogether briefly “Game Progress”).
- If you do not provide Game Progress data, you may still play the Game, but you will not be able to save your progress and/or to obtain achievements in the Game.
- 2.1.2 The purpose of the collection of the Game Progress is to enable us to fulfil our contractual obligations arising from you playing the Game (for details on that legal foundation, please see Article 6 (1) lit b GDPR) and to fulfil our legal and professional obligations (for details on that legal foundation, please see Article 6 (1) lit c GDPR).
- 2.1.3 The Game Progress is stored on services provided by Apple, namely on Apple’s iCloud for savegames and on Apple’s Game Center for achievements. As we neither store your personal data nor any Game Progress data nor savegames on our servers, Apple’s privacy policies for iCloud and Game Center apply. You may decline to store data in Apple’s iCloud or to send data to Apple’s Game Center. To turn off Apple’s iCloud data storage, you must turn off iCloud in Apple Settings for our game. As a result, you will only be able to play in offline mode without any possible online multiplayer features and you will not be able to load your savegames on another device whilst you may still begin a new game on another device and save your game locally on your device(s). To stop sending data to Apple’s Game Center, you must sign out of Apple’s Game Center in Apple Settings. As a result, you will not be able to obtain any achievements in the game or get an entry in Apple’s Game Center leader boards.

For all further copies which the data subject requests, the controller may request a reasonable fee on the basis of administrative costs. Where the data subject makes the request by electronic means, and unless otherwise requested by the data subject, the information shall be provided in a commonly used electronic form;
- Right to Rectification and Erasure, for details, please see Article 16 GDPR: The data subject shall have the right to obtain from the controller without undue delay the rectification of inaccurate personal data concerning him or her. Taking into account the purposes of the processing, the data subject shall have the right to have incomplete personal data completed, including by means of providing a supplementary statement.

- Right to Restriction of Processing, for details, please see Article 18 GDPR: The data subject has the right to obtain from the controller restriction of processing where one of the following applies: (a) the accuracy of the personal data is contested by the data subject, for a period enabling the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data; (b) the processing is unlawful and the data subject opposes the erasure of the personal data and requests the restriction of their use instead; (c) the controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but they are required by the data subject for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims; or (d) the data subject has objected to processing pending the verification whether the legitimate grounds of the controller override those of the data subject. Where processing has been restricted, such personal data shall, with the exception of storage, only be processed with the data subject’s consent or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the Union or of a Member State. A data subject who has obtained restriction of processing shall be informed by the controller before the restriction of processing is lifted.
- Right to Data Portability, for details, please see Article 20 GDPR: Insofar as the processing is based on consent or a contract and the processing is carried out by automated means, the data subject has the right to receive the personal data concerning him or her, which he or she has provided to a controller, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format.

Where personal data are processed for direct marketing purposes, the data subject shall have the right to object at any time to processing of personal data concerning him or her for such marketing.
