WHO WE ARE
TYPES OF DATA WE COLLECT
Anonymised Ingame Data
Lazarus uses a third party service called Playfab to give every player a unique ID, which is linked to your Steam account - another third party software - and this allows us to log information about your gameplay experiences in Lazarus, without knowing specifically who you are.
Information collected from Lazarus
We collect all the information we can about your experiences inside the game, your interactions with all of the systems that we’ve designed, and any bugs you may encounter too. This includes but is not limited to how many times you’ve died, how many asteroids you’ve killed, and how many Loot Crates you’ve yet to open. It also collects how much real money you’ve spent, on what items, and when. Finally, it collects the country & the closest city you access the game from.
How is the information managed?
How long does Spilt Milk Studios keep the information for??
The information is stored for as long as it is useful, by which we mean that either as long as the game is running, or until you’ve requested that we delete your information.This is because the information we keep helps us make the game better for every player, and that includes comparing historical data to recent changes.
Are we allowed to process your data?
Yes, but only because we adhere to very strict and sensible rules and have proven that we have what is referred to as a Legitimate Interest to process it. Essentially, we may process your personal information for carefully considered and specific purposes which are in our interests as well as those of our customers, and enable us to enhance the services we provide, and which we believe also benefit our customers.
What are Legitimate Interests?
“Legitimate Interests” means the interests of our company in conducting and managing our
Business, which enables us to give you the best service/products and the best and most secure
experience. For example, we have an interest in making sure the game is fairly balanced and therefore more fun for you, so we may process your information to make sure that our changes have the desired effect.
It can also apply to processing that is in your interests as well. For example, we may process your information to protect you against fraud when transacting in our game, and to ensure our game and systems are secure.
When we process your personal information for our legitimate interests, we make sure to consider and balance any potential impact on you (both positive and negative), and your rights under data protection laws. Our legitimate business interests do not automatically override your interests - we will not use your Personal Data for activities where our interests are overridden by the impact on you (unless we have your consent or are otherwise required or permitted to by law).
If you have any concerns about the processing, you have the right to object to processing that is based on our legitimate interests. If you wish to do so please email us on email@example.com
What is the information used for?
The main purposes for which the information is processed are:
1. For technical purposes essential to effective operation of our games, particularly in relation to identifying bugs and balancing the game experience to be more fun and rewarding.
2. To enable Spilt Milk Studios to tweak and balance the game so that it is secure and free of exploits.
