With some specific limitations or conditions, you have the following rights:

You have the right to access your information and you may request to have it deleted (GDPR Art. 15 and 17). If you wish to do either, please visit to delete or access any game- and IOI Account-related information or contact us at [email protected] for any other access or deletion enquiry. Please see section 5 for more details on deletion.

For technical reasons, you will not have the option to request correction of your information. Please contact us at [email protected] should you have any compelling reasons for a rectification.

You have the right to object to the processing of your information and have the processing of your information restricted (GDPR Art. 18).

You have the right to receive your information in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and you have the right to transmit that information to another controller, including to have it transmitted directly, where technically feasible (GDPR Art. 20).

If the processing of your personal information is based on your consent, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. Your withdrawal will not affect the processing carried out before you withdrew your consent. You may withdraw your consent by requesting to have your information deleted, after which we will no longer process your information, unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing that override your interests, rights and freedoms or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims. Please be aware that all your information will be deleted and you will be forced to play in offline mode until you accept this privacy policy (GDPR Art. 21).

Unless otherwise stated in the above, you can take steps to exercise these rights by contacting us at [email protected].


Retention. Unless otherwise specified in this policy, we store your information only for as long as needed, in order to fulfil the purposes outlined in this policy or until you request to have your information deleted – whichever comes first. This is a case-by-case determination that depends on things like the nature of the information, why it is collected and relevant legal or operational retention needs.

Game Information Deletion. When you request to have your information deleted, we delete everything associated with you, including your online progress in any of our games. Please note that your information will be deleted in its entirety and that it will not be possible for us to distinguish between information collected by our games. Consequently, it is not possible to request information deleted from one game while retaining information from another. We will not be able to restore any deleted information. The user-generated content that you have created may not be deleted, but you will not be associated with that content any more.


The information we collect when you connect and play our games is mandatory if you want to play our games in online mode. Please note that you can choose to opt out of our collection of information by updating your privacy settings in our menus or by requesting to have your information deleted. The consequence of not providing the information is that you will be forced to play our games in offline mode. If you reject this privacy policy or request to have your information deleted and then, at a later stage, want to enable online mode, please click the ‘go online’ button and accept this privacy policy.


As our games require you to be of a mature age, we do not knowingly collect any information from children under 16. If you become aware that a child has provided us with information without parental consent, please contact us at [email protected]. If we become aware that a child under 16 has provided us with information without parental consent, we will take steps to remove the information.


Should you have any questions or comments, you are welcome to direct them to [email protected] or in writing by post to IO Interactive A/S, Gammel Moent 2-4, 1117 Copenhagen, Denmark, Att.: Legal. You also have the right to lodge a complaint with a data protection supervisory authority, such as The Danish Data Protection Agency.
