7.1. When we process information about you, we do so as necessary to provide Spacefarer Research and Development LTD services you use (i.e. to perform agreement between us, enable you to play our games or use game features), meet our legal obligations (f.ex. tax, accounting) or to fulfill the so-called “legitimate interests” of Spacefarer Research and Development LTD or other reasons described in the “How we use your data” section. To clarify, by legitimate interests we mean lawful purposes that could be reasonably expected (like informing you about games we distribute and making sure our marketing is relevant for you, protecting the security of our websites and systems, conducting anti-cheat analysis and anti-fraud checks). When we rely on the legitimate interest, we consider and balance any potential impact on you and your rights. For other purposes we will ask for your consent and you will be entitled to withdraw this consent any time, with no impact on the validity of the processing before your consent has been withdrawn.

In essence, we process your data to provide you with Spacefarer Research and Development LTD services, to meet our legal obligations and for other reasons that are important for us like informing you about our games and ensuring security of our website. In other cases, we will ask for your consent in advance and you will always have the right to withdraw it anytime you like.

7.2 When we transfer your data outside of the European Economic Area, we do so on the basis of a variety of legal mechanisms, as described in “Trusted Partners”.


8.1 All information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers or those of our Trusted Partners. We implement appropriate technical and organisational measures to protect your personal data against unauthorised or unlawful processing, accidental loss, destruction or damage.

All information you provide to us is stored either on our secure servers or those of our Trusted Partners.

8.2 How long are we going to keep your data? We will retain your personal information only for as long as we will be required in order to fulfil the purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy. In certain special cases, a longer retention period might be required by law e.g. tax, accounting purposes or other legal requirements and obligations. As soon as we will no longer require your personal data to provide our services for other purposes mentioned above, we will promptly delete or anonymize it.


9.3 Non-personal data. We might process some aggregated and general non-personal data on user behaviour (e.g. sales per region, number of store downloads) and share it with Trusted Partners who work with us to provide Spacefarer Research and Development LTD services to you (for example, with games developers/publishers selling games on Spacefarer Research and Development LTD or with payment providers) in order to support, improve or amend Spacefarer Research and Development LTD services or to help them to improve their products, which you have bought. We may also share non-personal information with data analysis services to help us run Spacefarer Research and Development LTD. Fear not, as mentioned above, everything’s anonymised, so you cannot be identified.

10.3. In general, we do not disclose information about you to third parties without your consent. We may share your data only with the following categories of third parties who were engaged by us to help deliver our services and functionalities to you (they are formally called “Data Processors”).

10.6 Your information may be processed, stored and transferred outside your country of residence and beyond the European Economic Area (EEA) and Switzerland, such as the United States, Canada or Brazil. Privacy laws in these countries may not offer the same level of protection as in your country or in the EEA. But whenever we’re sharing your personal information outside the EEA and Switzerland, we will do so on the basis of the EU standard contractual clauses and/or other lawful measures to transfer your data and establish adequate protection of your personal information


12.1 Please be aware that we are subject to various laws and we may be required to release personal information to comply with law enforcement or other legal requirements.

13.1 You have the right to object to the processing of your personal data in certain situations f.ex. for marketing purposes at any time. You can do so by contacting us at [email protected]
