As described in more detail below, we only collect, process and use your personal data to such an extent that is necessary to provide our Service, to communicate with you, to provide customer support and for game development and business purposes. This helps us to understand our customers better and to create better games and experiences for you in the future. We also send some of your data to third-parties when you for example watch an ad in our games. Working with partners and advertising networks in this manner allows us to continue to offer our games to be downloaded free of charge (in-app purchases may be available).
Our personal data processing operations are based on the relevant national and international regulations, adhering to the rules and principles of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
If you have questions about data protection, or if you have any requests for resolving issues with your personal data, we encourage you to contact us.
We collect your data typically when you first use our Services (i.e. when you install a mobile game); when you play the game (e.g. in-game event analytics and personalized gameplay experiences); when you visit our website (www.basketbirds.net); and when you interact directly with us (e.g. customer service correspondence).
We collect and use your personal information for the following purposes. Our legal basis for collecting and using the personal information is also described below
To perform the contract, we process data necessary to:
To provide a great Service to our players, we have a legitimate interest to collect and process necessary data to:
Our Service uses built-in advertising run by third-party advertising networks that can enhance the in-game experience. Such advertisements allow us to offer you our Service to be downloaded for free (in-app purchases may be available).

For information on how to opt-out from personalized advertisements, see section Your rights and options below.
Ensuring a level playing field in the Service is a top priority for us. For more information on our acceptable use policy, see our Terms of Service (add link). In order to keep the Service and its social features safe and fair, to fight fraud and ensure acceptable use otherwise, we have a legitimate interest to process necessary data to:
In all of the above cases and purposes, we may analyze, profile and segment all collected data.
With your consent, we may process your data for additional purposes; such as sending your updates through push notifications or using your GPS location to show you local events. You have a right to withdraw or change your consent. If you have questions about or need further information concerning the legal basis on which we collect and use your personal information, please contact us.
Apart from us, your data can be accessed or used by others in the following situations:
Social features such as leaderboards or friend lists can be a component of our games. Other players and users may, for example, see your profile data, in-game activities or high scores and read the messages you have posted.
Basket Birds has partners to perform services for us. These partners process your data only at and according to Basket Birds instructions to provide the Service, such as hosting, player support, analytics and fraud prevention. We use Google Analytics on our website.
Our games are developed with Unity software. The game engine requires some technical information about the player’s device so that it can work properly (such as device manufacturer, hardware components, device and network identities, user language). This collected data is sent to Unity.
Please note. These tools from our partners are not provided by Basket Birds, and we do not control or operate the services and tools themselves or the choices that partners, advertisers and others might provide through these tools.
In order to combat fraud and illegal activity, we may exchange data with other companies and organisations and provide it to public authorities in response to lawful requests.
We may also disclose your data based on your consent, to comply with the law or to protect the rights, property or safety of us, our players or others.
You have the right to review the data we have collected and influence the way we use it. In certain cases you have the right to erasure or to ask for your data to be transferred to another controller. Your rights are as follows:
You have the right to access and inspect the personal data we have collected about you at any time, or receive confirmation that we do not have any personal data about you in our filing systems. If your personal data is inaccurate or incomplete, you have the right to make a request for rectification or completion of your personal data.
In certain circumstances, for example if your personal data is inaccurate, you have the right to restrict its processing until we have verified the accuracy of your personal data. Further, in certain situations you also have the right to object to the processing of your personal data completely. You can for example object the processing for direct marketing purposes at any time (including profiling).
In some cases you have the right to be forgotten. We will erase all personal data we have collected if it is no longer needed for the purposes it was originally collected for. We will also erase personal data if the processing was based on consent and you decide to withdraw your consent or restrict the processing, or if there is no other reason nor grounds for the processing.
You have the right to request the transfer your personal data. This is possible only in such cases when we process your personal data based on your consent or agreement, and applies only to such personal data you have provided us yourself.
We will provide your personal data in machine-readable format so that you can store it yourself or transfer it to another controller (e.g. another service provider). Upon your request, we will transfer the data to another controller directly if it is technically feasible.
You may opt-out of receiving promotional communications, such as marketing emails from us by following the instructions in such communications.
If you wish to opt out of targeted advertising, please visit our ad networking partners websites for more information about their opt out possibilities. Please note that if you choose to opt out it does not mean that you will no longer receive advertising. It just means that the advertising you see displayed will not be customized to you and your interests and may be less relevant to you.
You can also opt-out of interest-based advertising on mobile applications by checking the privacy settings of your Android or iOS device and resetting/disabling your unique advertising ID (Identification for Advertising, IDFAon Apple and Google Advertising ID, GAID). Resetting your advertising ID erases all data previously associated with it, meaning you will no longer receive personalised adverts.
You can also choose not to receive personalised advertising by opting-out of interest-based ads. Just toggle off the Opt-out of interest-based ads option.
You can also choose not to receive personalised advertising by opting-out of interest-based ads. Just toggle the Limit Ad Tracking option on.
We and our partners use advertising identifiers, cookies and similar tracking technologies. Advertising identifiers, cookies and similar technologies are used by us and our partners to provide our Service to you and to collect data from your device. These technologies allow us and our partners to
You may also see our own advertisements in other games and services. If you click such advertisements and install our game(s), we may share a device identifier with our partners to verify installs and prevent fraudulent actions.
You may delete the cookies from your device after using our Service or at any time in your web browser Settings menu. If you disable cookies on your browser, some parts of our Service may not function properly. Please note that cookies and other identifiers may also be used to target advertising to you within our Service as well as in third-party services (like Facebook).
Third parties are developing or have developed signals or other mechanisms known as Do Not Track signals. However, there is not yet a uniform technological standard. Therefore, we do not monitor or take any action with respect to these signals or other mechanisms but may consider doing so when a standard is developed and widely adopted. You will need to use your browser settings to effectively manage cookies.
In addition to the above-mentioned rights, you have the right to make a complaint about your personal data processing to the supervisory authority.
Should you have questions about your rights, please contact us. We will respond to all requests within a reasonable timeframe without any delays
In order to help ensure a secure and safe player experience, we have taken technical and organisational measures for protecting your personal data from loss, misuse or other similar unlawful access. These methods are generally acceptable industry standards and include, among others, use of firewalls, encryption and safe server premises. We are continuously developing and implementing these measures to protect your data
We will retain your information for as long as is needed to provide you the Service; as long as needed for the purpose it was originally collected for; as long as we are legally obligated; or until we receive a request for erasure. That means that we will hold your data for the entire life cycle of the respective mobile game you have used as part of our Services. After this point, your personal data will either be erased completely or anonymized for analytical use for a certain period.
Note that if you ask us to remove your personal data, we will retain your data as necessary for our legitimate business interests, such as to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
We use appropriate technical and organisational measures designed to protect the personal information that we collect and process about you. The measures we use are designed to provide a level of security appropriate to the risk of processing your personal information. Specific measures we use include that only those of our employees, who on behalf of their work are entitled to process personal information, are entitled to use a system containing personal information. Each user has a personal username and password to the system. The information is collected into databases that are protected by firewalls, passwords and other technical measures. The databases and the backup copies are in locked premises and can be accessed only by certain pre-designated persons.
Your data and coarse location might be shared based on your consent or if required by law, regulation or based on a request from competent authorities, such as for detection or prevention of misuse or criminal activities. When we share our data with third parties, they only process your data in accordance with their scope of work as set out in our agreements with such third parties.
The aggregated or de-personalized data based on our users information (such as statistics) that we might publish at some point will never identify you.
We do not knowingly collect or solicit personal data about or direct or target interest-based advertising to anyone under the age of 13 or knowingly allow such persons to use our Services. If you are under 13, please do not send any data about yourself to us, including your name, address, telephone number, or email address. No one under the age of 13 may provide any personal data. If we learn that we have collected personal data about a child under age 13, we will delete that data. If you believe that we might have any data from or about a child under the age of 13, please contact us.
