KINGDOM·OF·LOOT Privacy Policy
EpicBeyond Studios respects the privacy rights of all users and is aware of the importance of protecting stored personal data. Substantial organisational and technical measures have been taken to ensure the security of all personal data that is collected. This privacy policy explains in detail which information is collected and for which purposes it can be processed and used.

EpicBeyond Studios collects, processes and uses personal data for the conclusion and execution of a user's service agreement with EpicBeyond Studios. Personal data comprises stock data such as name, email, hometown of a user as well as usage data such as account number, password and IP address.

EpicBeyond Studios collects the usage data that is automatically determined and transmitted by web browsers or any other client software whenever EpicBeyond Studios's website kingdom-of-loot.com or any other of EpicBeyond Studios's websites is used. Such usage data includes, but is not limited to, IP address, browser version, access time, information on the type and the aim of requests and data about hardware and software of the user's computer system. It is saved in protocol files, with some of the information being stored in anonymous form. Among other purposes, this data is used by EpicBeyond Studios for the compilation of anonymous statistical surveys on the use of their online services and for the error analysis and the optimisation of their service.

EpicBeyond Studios uses, among other things, cookies to collect, process and use usage data in order to allow, for instance, the management of accounts and of personal settings, the participation in the discussion forum, and the use of further personalised services.

EpicBeyond Studios collects, processes and uses stock and usage data, to the extent that is necessary in individual cases, if it is required to reveal and to stop fraudulent behaviour or any other form of using EpicBeyond Studios's services which violates legal regulations or the service agreement. In particular, EpicBeyond Studios reserves the right to log, process and use information such as the time and the content of conversations and expressions of opinion that take place in their online services if there are complaints, reports or other credible indications of behaviour that violates legal regulations or the service agreement, for example the serious insulting of other users. This regulation extends to all parts of EpicBeyond Studios's online service, including, but not limited to, guild channels, private channels and private messages.

EpicBeyond Studios collects, processes and uses personal data in connection with complaints and requests to their user support in order to comply with requests in as efficient and satisfactory a manner as possible. Data that is collected for such purposes includes, but is not limited to, the email address, the date of the contact and its content. Also, EpicBeyond Studios processes and uses this data to compile anonymous statistical surveys for the optimisation of their customer support.

EpicBeyond Studios collects, processes and uses personal data for the purpose of conducting marketing actions such as the sending of emails that contain general information or promotional content, provided that the user agreed to receiving such emails separately during the account creation process or at any later time by selecting the option "Newsletter" on the account page. Every user can unsubscribe from receiving this kind of information at any time by deselecting the aforementioned account option "Newsletter". Also, EpicBeyond Studios processes and uses personal data to compile anonymous statistical surveys for the purpose of improving their range of services.

EpicBeyond Studios displays character names to all visitors on all of EpicBeyond Studios's websites as well as to all users in their online services in connection with certain game activities of a user in order to allow other users to selectively contact this user. This occurs, for example, when the user uses characters online, when they act as parts of character associations, or possibly when they are registered in high score lists. Furthermore, EpicBeyond Studios generally makes usage data of characters, for example the time of its most recent use or information on its death, available to all visitors on all of EpicBeyond Studios's websites as well as to all users in EpicBeyond Studios's online services. EpicBeyond Studios makes information, such as the record of rule violations or the list of defeated characters, available to certain other users, who have a supervisory role among the community of users.

In so far as the transfer of data to third parties is not explicitly allowed by law, especially by the German BDSG, EpicBeyond Studios passes on personal data, to the extent that is necessary, to law enforcement and supervisory authorities for the purpose of preventing dangers to the national or public security as well as for the prosecution of criminal offences.
EpicBeyond Studios passes on the name, address and, to the extent that is necessary in individual cases, further personal data of users to its partner companies, for example for the purpose of handling payment transactions or to provide other services in the framework of the users' service agreement with EpicBeyond Studios.
passes on IP addresses, data about requested web pages and other related usage data to third party services, for example Google Analytics, for traffic and log analysis to compile anonymous statistical surveys on the use of EpicBeyond Studios's online services. Those third parties may use cookies to improve the accuracy and usefulness of their analysis.
Third parties may possibly be based in countries outside of the European Union, but they are bound to protect personal data to the same extent as EpicBeyond Studios. EpicBeyond Studios will not, aside from the aforementioned cases, pass on personal data to third parties, and solely employees of EpicBeyond Studios have access to personal data in order to fulfil the tasks specified above.

EpicBeyond Studios may change this privacy policy at any time. EpicBeyond Studios will notify all users about the changes by placing a prominent notice on the website of KINGDOM·OF·LOOT. The changed privacy policy will take effect 30 days after it has been officially announced. It will fully apply to any user who has not revoked his or her declaration of consent within this period of time. All users are required to review this policy at regular intervals to keep themselves informed about any changes.

Users can revoke their declaration of consent to the processing of their personal data as specified above anytime with future effect by sending an email to support@seyken.com. In case of revocation, their accounts at EpicBeyond Studios will be blocked, and EpicBeyond Studios's personalised services will no longer be available via these accounts.

Virtual Currencies:
In KINGDOM·OF·LOOT we offer certain virtual currencies for sale or, in our discretion, as free promotions. Virtual currencies can be redeemed (ie used) to acquire certain digital goods / services, which we describe below as "Items". If you obtain virtual currency, you must check that it has been correctly credited to your account and tell us immediately if not.

PLEASE TAKE NOTE that virtual currencies are subject to very important restrictions:

Virtual currency expires and will be deleted if it has not been redeemed within a certain period after acquisition so you should redeem it as soon as possible. The expiry period is whatever we specify when you acquire the virtual currency or, if we haven't specified a time limit, three months from acquisition.

Unless we say otherwise on our website, virtual currency can only be redeemed within the world of the game where you acquired it. Each game may contain one or more virtual currencies. We may at any time change or remove any or any type of Item for which virtual currency can be redeemed as well as the amount of virtual currency needed to acquire a particular Item. You may only redeem virtual currency for Items on offer at the time of redemption. Unless we say otherwise on our website, virtual currencies are specific to a particular EpicBeyond Studios Product, and one virtual currency used in relation to one EpicBeyond Studios Product may not be exchanged for another virtual currency for use in relation to another EpicBeyond Studios Product. In addition, unless otherwise stated, each virtual currency is independent and is not exchangeable for any other virtual currency in the same EpicBeyond Studios Product.

Virtual currency does not have any inherent value and is not your own private property. You can only use them to acquire those Items which we decide in our discretion to offer in return for virtual currency. We do not provide any cash or refunds for virtual currency (except as required by law) and virtual currency does not have any real-world value. Virtual currency is for your personal use only. You must not sell or transfer it or make it available to anyone else or attempt to do so or encourage anyone else to do any of these things. Virtual currency and Items have no monetary value. Virtual currency and Items can never be redeemed for real world money, goods or any other item of monetary value. We may impose additional restrictions concerning the acquisition or redemption of virtual currency and Items. For example we may cap the amount of virtual currency which can be acquired or held or redeemed in any particular period or we may impose restrictions based on your country of residence. Certain Items may also only be available to certain persons, such as those who have separately acquired a subscription.

We may restrict access to or delete virtual currency or Items:
- you failed to apply to all the above rules
- if the virtual currency was awarded in error
- if a payment for virtual currency is charged back or otherwise cancelled or reversed.

We may at any time decide to end the entire virtual currency program for all or any of our games. Before we delete the unused virtual currency, we will endeavour to give you at least four weeks to redeem it.
