Welcome to TFJoy!
This data protection notice tells users how their personal data is used.
The company responsible is TFJoy Limited ("TFJoy", "we", "our"). Users can find out more about TFJoy in the “User Agreement” or Imprint information http://tfjoy.com/games/user-agreement/.
TFJoy provides games and related services that can be used with friends or in a social network. Users share, sample and design games with other people - our services unite people in fun and enjoyment. At the same time though, we take the privacy of the user's personal details very seriously and handle them with great care, in keeping with data protection law. Where applicable, before commencing play, the user consents to its personal data being recorded and used by us in the way described in this data protection notice. The user's data is needed for actual technical usage, for the communicative setup, and for our games to be further developed.
The data protection notices and conditions of the specific platform on which the user plays our games also apply at the same time.
Every time a TFJoy
service is accessed, that communication automatically generates data. TFJoy
only stores and uses Log files related data that does not enable a person to be identified (e.g. by making the IP address anonymous), the purpose being to obtain technical and statistical information for rectifying faults or improving the website, or for doing research and analysis.
3. User and gaming data at TFJoy
By taking part in a game, a user allows TFJoy
to use its data (e.g. player name, level, results, prizes, coins) for staging the game(s) and services, in other words to offer the user a safe, smooth, efficient and customized gaming experience. This may also include the information that TFJoy
swaps with the platform on which the user plays TFJoy
games (e.g. profile name, profile picture, gender, networks, user ID, friends list). TFJoy
is continually refining its games and services, adapting them to user requirements by using data provided anonymously or under a pseudonym. TFJoy
positively encourages every user to make an active contribution to the design of its games and services. We use personal user data to manage game registration, to personalize subsequent visits, and to operate and stage the games. Since the majority of TFJoy
games also provide an opportunity for a communal gaming experience, TFJoy
may also display your player status or scores to friends and other players.
In addition to this, TFJoy
may collect and use a user's personal data if it is needed for billing any games and services that have been used. TFJoy
may also use the data in locked form to comply with retention periods laid down by law or required by contract.
If a user sends us an enquiry or subscribes to special services, such as a newsletter, we will ask it for the information that we need in order to deal with its request. This information is used on a voluntary basis and only to the extent required or previously approved by the user (see also Item 11).
We may appoint third parties to help us provide our services (e.g. for operating technical platforms or processing payments). However, we take responsibility for monitoring how your information is used at any time.
4. Email and other electronic addresses
Every user has the opportunity (when registering for a game, for example) to state its email or other electronic addresses, so that we can send out gaming news. Users may also order newsletters from us about TFJoy
or our games.
Users may at any time decline to receive email advertising or a newsletter, and can withdraw consent with immediate effect. The simplest way for a user to do this is to use the special link or the email function and to specify its preferred settings.
5. Use of personal data by other players on TFJoy
Depending on the user settings, other players may see personal data
in the game or on the relevant platform. We do not allow other players
to use this information outside a game. If another player obtains
personal data because of the way the user has adjusted the settings,
we can no longer guarantee the protection of that information any
more. For this reason, each user should check beforehand that its
settings only allow its data to be viewed by people he/she trusts.
6. Information; deletion and blocking of data
Users are always able to view their gaming details (e.g. player name,
score, units, features) by logging in to the relevant platform and calling
up the game. Users can make their own deletions and amendments
TFJoy will immediately provide information free of charge on any other
user data and inventory data – electronically or in writing, if so
requested. Before furnishing any information, we may insist on being
sent some form of documentation to prove the enquirer's identity and
confirm its authenticity.
Once the user's contractual agreement with TFJoy has come to an
end, essential data will be blocked for an appropriate processing
period, and any optional information other than that will be erased.
7. Withdrawal of consent; objection to advertising, market
research or opinion polls
While the use of personal data is based on consent given by the user,
this may be withdrawn at any time with immediate effect. Information
on how to do this can be found in the FAQ on the relevant game
(email@example.com). Withdrawing consent may result in services no
longer being available, or to a user's contractual agreement being
terminated. We also reserve the right to base our data privacy
procedures on statutory regulations at any time.
If a user wishes to object to his/her personal details being used for
advertising, market research or opinion polls, further information can be
found in the FAQ on the relevant game (firstname.lastname@example.org). A notice
or unsubscribe option (e.g. a button) may be provided on each service
used. If the user sends an objection, advertising that does not use
his/her personal data (InGame, for example) will not be affected.
If anything is still unclear, a visit to our FAQ is certain to be helpful
(email@example.com). From there, you can also send a message to our
experts here at TFJoy
We use standard security practices, including encryption, passwords
and physical security measures, to protect your personal data from
unauthorized access and disclosure. Your user account information is

sensitive data (such as a credit card number), we encrypt that
information using secure socket layer technology (SSL).
