Last update: 2018-02-06

1. Introduction

MegaDev GmbH (following: „MegaDev“) is aware of it’s position as a modern IT company and therefore takes the privacy of visitors, users and clients/members (summarized as follows: „User“) very seriously. This is why the following privacy policy has been prepared to educate the users about the storage and usage of data that has been/is being aggregated whilst using MegaDev’s products, services and web pages (summarized as follows: „offers“).
The following privacy policy has been set up in January 2018 and reflects current law and jurisdiction. For reasons of precaution MegaDev points out that possible changes of jurisdiction, laws and also technological progress can make changes of this policy necessary to meet the new regulations. Therefore we ask you to carefully read the latest version of this privacy policy whenever you are about to take any actions concerning the offers of MegaDev.

2. Collection of Data

By usage, respectively claiming of MegaDev’s web pages, programs and services the user acknowledges and accepts that thereby or due to any other communication with MegaDev personally identifiable information is being collected, processed and stored. Personally identifiable information is such information that can be used to identify the user, for instance his name, country, payment service provider, IP address, credit card number, etc.. „Personally identifiable information“ by users who are permanent residents of the European Union are legally defined by Art. 2 a) of EZ-guideline 95/46, stated Oct. 24th 1995.
Within the usage of MegaDev’s offers the user can be asked to provide personally identifiable information; particularly the user must provide his E-Mail address, chose an individual user name and accompanying password to use the MegaDev products and forum on the web page. The collection and storage of these and further data partially is a technical and economical requirement in order to gain and maintain access to some of MegaDev’s offers and for their usage in the intended way, as well as for the handling of agreed on duties of contract concerning the terms of contract on behalf of MegaDev.
MegaDev also reserves the right to collect, process and store anonymous data. These are information that by no way can be used to identify the user. Their processing can occur either individually or in aggregated form.

3. Usage of information

MegaDev collects, processes and uses the user’s personally identifiable information itself or via performing services under contract with MegaDev (e.g. payment service providers such as Paypal and PaySafeCard) generally – and exclusively – to the extent needed to fulfill the necessary duties of contract or to serve the uncovering of criminal offenses. Within the latter, MegaDev may also grant access to personally identifiable information to third parties if MegaDev is bound by court order or law to do so.
For the sake of constant improvement of MegaDev’s offers as well as for the prevention of system crashes, malfunctions or other unintended problems of the MegaDev software (not web pages!), automatically generated hardware and software profiles are being transferred to MegaDev. The data in the automated report might contain information about relevant software and hardware that is installed onto or respectively mounted within the user’s computer. Furthermore MegaDev collects and stores software information such as usage time and life of the MegaDev software itself, considerably adjunctive third party software as well as the actions performed by MegaDev’s software. Those kind of information are substantial and necessary to clarify and prevent any issues within the payment process and the acceptance and realization of MegaDev’s provided offers; also they can be connected for statistic or support purposes with the user’s profile and be – if needed, but not necessarily aggregated and anonymized – evaluated. For statistic reasons and also for improvement, stabilization and safety coverage of MegaDev’s offers such data can also be collected without the cause of an error/malfunction report. MegaDev also reserves the right to share with and provide statistical evaluation and single information for third parties, though those will always be anonymized in any case no matter, whether they are shared in individual sets or bundled.
In the event of merger, sale or reorganization of MegaDev, it’s successor is legitimated to store and process the data collected before as well as to collect further information; if necessary though, an adjusted privacy policy has to be set in place that fully educates the user about the further usage of his data.
