Information We Collect and Use
When we refer to “Personal Data,” we mean any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (“data subject”); an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly, or indirectly, by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, or an online identifier.
ValheimAF directly and through third-parties collects information that you provide to us from your use of the Services, and from other sources. The information we collect and how we process it depends on how you use and access the Services and we combine all of the information we have about you so that we can analyze it and provide better Services to you. We collect information, including Personal Data, as follows:
Your Submissions to Us
ValheimAF will collect the Personal Data you share when you sign up for an account or contact us with a question or request. For example, if you submit a request to advertise with us, you may provide us with your name, email address, telephone number, address, and company. We use this information as necessary to respond to your request or inquiry and to provide and improve the Services and our products. We process this Personal Data as long as we have a legitimate interest or based on your consent.
Your Content Submissions
ValheimAF allows users to submit content, such as comments and images, videos and more, on our site with your consent. Users who choose to sign up for this service must provide a user name and email address. If, in addition to you, other persons are identifiable in the content you provide, you must obtain consent from those persons prior to publication.
“Location Data” is collected with your consent or inferred as you use the Services. Such information will include the location of the mobile device or computer used to access the Services derived from GPS or WiFi use, your device’s IP Address, or the geographic information you provide to us (e.g. your city). We use this information to analyze the use of the Services, customize and improve the content for you on the Services, send you location-specific content, and show you events, users or businesses near you. We use and retain the Personal Data for as long as necessary and useful to provide personalized and improved services to you or until you withdraw consent.
Marketing and Other Informational Updates
With your consent and as otherwise permitted by law, we use your email address and other information we receive from and about you to contact you with notifications and information about our products and services and other products and services, provide special offers and promotions that may be of interest to you. You may withdraw your consent at any time by unsubscribing from such communications. We may also notify you periodically about important changes to the services. Withdrawing consent from marketing communications does not affect our ability to send you these communications, such as those related to providing services to you or responding to your requests.
