GameStop Data Protection Policy
Welcome to www.gamestop.no. This website (the “Website”) is operated by GameStop Norway AS (“GameStop”). GameStop is the data controller liable for the personal data that is processed in relation to the Website. The protection of the personal data of our users is very important to us. This is why we inform you in this Data Protection Policy about how and to what extent we use personal data.
What are personal Data?
Personal data means any information and assessments that may be linked to a natural person, such as names, addresses, telephone numbers, email addresses or any other similar information. Within the Website personal data are collected only if provided voluntarily by the user (e. g. as part of the registration or application for a newsletter or membership).
What Data are collected and processed?
To register on the Website, a user must provide his full name (first name and last name) and a valid email address, and a user may also, but is not required to, provide his postal address with street, house number, postal code, game system and preferences, and favorite GameStop store (collectively, the “Contact Data”). By registering on the Website, the user explicitly consents to the collection, processing and transfer of his Contact Data as provided in this Data Protection Policy. In addition, certain data are collected automatically during the user’s visit of the Website. These include, in particular, the IP address of the user, the user browser type and other technical data, as well as the search terms used by the user, webpages visited by the user, length of visits, number of visits and other user-specific data (the “Automatically Collected Data”).
What are the collected personal Data used for?
The Contact Data are used to provide customers who have given their express and separate approval with news or special offers on the Website, requests regarding customer surveys or messages in case of competitions. The Automatically Collected Data are used to evaluate the use of the Website and improve the Website and the content provided therein. Without the user’s separate approval data collected through the Website will be processed only within the scope of what is admissible under data protection laws or in anonymised form, e. g. for statistical purposes and other evaluations.
Will my Data be passed on?
GameStop does not sell, rent or share your Contact Data to any third party except as described in this Data Protection Policy. Users may use the Website to express their opinions or judgments on games through social plugins. By using these plugins the user’s name or other personal data will then be available on the internet and through search engines. Accordingly, it is up to each user personally to consider carefully what personal data he wishes to disclose. If users take part in tournaments through the Website, GameStop will pass on the data disclosed by them to the organisers of such tournaments. Furthermore, GameStop will pass on personal data of its users only to authorised public bodies and only if the users have been separately informed in special campaigns and have expressly agreed to this. Otherwise, GameStop will pass on personal data of its users only within the scope of what is permissible under data protection laws and only to affiliated enterprises of the GameStop group. If GameStop shares your information within its affiliated enterprises, we will ensure that your information continues to be used only in accordance with this Data Protection Policy and your expressed choices.
How and how long will my Data be stored?
GameStop takes appropriate security steps to protect your personal information in accordance with applicable legislation. GameStop stores personal data exclusively on computers which are particularly protected through technical and organisational measures against unauthorised access, processing, or disclosure to third parties, or accidental or intentional loss, destruction or alteration of data. GameStop will not store personal data longer than required for the purposes stated in this Data Protection Policy. When users delete their user account on the Website, the data stored at GameStop will be deleted immediately or (if such deletion is in conflict with any preservation periods prescribed by law, statutes or contracts, which prohibit the deletion of data) will be blocked.
