Data responsibility, data management, and data protection

Embracer Group is the controller of the personal data collected. That means we decide which personal data is to be collected, how it should be processed, and for how long. For instance, we may process your data as a visitor to this website.

To ensure that we handle your data correctly, we have a privacy management program that sets the parameters for how personal data can be used, trains our staff on the requirements of personal data processing, and ensures that we fulfill our legal obligations for the processing of personal data.

The security of your personal data is important to us. Therefore, we have taken appropriate technical, organizational, and administrative security measures to protect your personal data from unauthorized access and other unauthorized processing. We regularly analyze and evaluate the measures to ensure that the protection of your data is up to date using the latest relevant technologies. To further ensure that your personal data is protected, we also perform recurring audits using third-party security and privacy auditors.

Personal data

Personal data is any information that can be directly or indirectly linked to a physical person. Examples of personal data we can process about you are name, email, address, phone number, location information, and IP address. We only collect your data when we have a purpose and lawful grounds for personal data processing.

Website

When you visit our website www.embracer.com we collect personal data from you for various purposes. We do this by using IP Tracking for security reasons, website statistics with Google Analytics, and social media links such as share functions. We use cookies on this website. Please read our Cookie Policy here.

IP Tracking

When you visit our websites, access data is recorded in the log file on our servers. We record internet protocol, address / IP address, the page from which the file was requested, date, time, browser type and operating system, page visited, data transfer, and access status (file transfer, file not found, etc.).

We use the log files to ensure the functionality of the website, monitor traffic on our websites, resolve technical issues, and generate statistics that help us tailor our services to your needs. This is within our legitimate interest to provide a secure and well-functioning website.

If it comes to an abuse of our websites, we can block IP addresses if necessary. The data is stored only for a limited period and only for as long as needed to ensure the safety and functionality of our websites.

On our websites, we use active Java Script content from external providers. By visiting our websites, these external providers may receive Personal Data about your visit. In this case, processing data outside the European Economic Area (EEA) is possible. You can prevent this by using a java script blocker such as installing the browser plugin ‘NoScript’ (www.noscript.net) or disabling javascript in your browser.

Links to external websites and services

Our website contains interactive links to third-party websites. The third-party providers collect data about your online activities, such as the websites you visit, the automatic transmission of your IP address, and the use of cookies. In this connection, no link is created between the third-party information and information we might process about you, such as your name, address, telephone number, or e-mail address. For more information about these services or how to disable these services, see the web pages for these services.

The data is used exclusively for communication and to perform the requested task. This is within our legitimate interest of responding to communication and performing the appropriate actions to fulfill the request.

Third parties

Service providers

We use external service providers to process personal data on our behalf. These service providers provide services related to, for example, the website, marketing, and IT support. External service providers may have access to and process your personal data but are still doing so under our responsibility. All external service providers are under contract to fulfill appropriate data protection standards.

Other recipients

Following applicable personal data legislation, we may transfer your personal data to Embracer Group companies, regulators, other public authorities, legal advisors, external consultants, and partners as required or necessary. In the case of a merger, sale of the whole or part of the company, or acquisition of companies, your personal data may be transferred to the third parties involved.

International transfers

We strive to keep your personal data stored and processed within the EU / EEA area. If your personal data is required to be sent to a third country, we will take all necessary actions to ensure an adequate level of protection for personal data transmitted. This includes technical, organizational, and contractual obligations.

How long do we retain your personal data?

We process data about you as a website visitor, prospect, supplier, or other stakeholder only as long as it is necessary to carry out our commitments to you and, if such exists, as long as required by statutory storage times. If we process data based on your consent, we will delete your data immediately upon withdrawal of your consent unless we are required by law to retain the information for longer.
