We are delighted by your interest in our company. Data protection holds a particularly high priority for the management of Bingo Germany GmbH. The use of Bingo Germany GmbH’s websites is generally possible without providing any personal data. However, if an individual wishes to access specific services provided by our company through our website, the processing of personal data may be necessary. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally seek the consent of the individual concerned.
The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, email address, or telephone number of an individual, always occurs in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and in compliance with the specific data protection regulations applicable to Bingo Germany GmbH. Through this privacy statement, our company aims to inform the public about the nature, scope, and purpose of the personal data we collect, use, and process. Additionally, individuals are informed of their rights through this privacy statement.
Bingo Germany GmbH, as the entity responsible for processing, has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most comprehensive protection of the personal data processed through this website. However, internet-based data transmissions can inherently have security vulnerabilities, and as such, absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every individual is free to transmit personal data through alternative means, such as by phone.
a) Personal Data
Personal data refers to any information related to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter referred to as the „data subject“). A natural person is considered identifiable if, directly or indirectly, especially by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier, or one or more specific factors expressing the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural, or social identity of that natural person, can be identified.
b) Data Subject
A data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data is processed by the controller responsible for the processing.
Processing is any operation or set of operations performed on personal data, with or without the aid of automated processes, such as collecting, recording, organizing, structuring, storing, adapting, or altering, retrieving, consulting, using, disclosing by transmission, disseminating, or otherwise making available, aligning or combining, restricting, erasing, or destroying.
d) Restriction of Processing
Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their future processing.
Profiling is any form of automated processing of personal data that involves using this personal data to evaluate specific personal aspects related to a natural person, particularly to analyze or predict aspects related to work performance, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behavior, location, or movement of that natural person.
Pseudonymization is the processing of personal data in a way that the data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without additional information, provided that this additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organizational measures to ensure that the personal data are not assigned to an identified or identifiable natural person.
g) Controller or Processor
The controller or processor is the natural or legal person, authority, institution, or other body that, alone or jointly with others, decides on the purposes and means of processing personal data. If the purposes and means of this processing are determined by Union law or the law of the Member States, the controller or the specific criteria for its appointment may be provided for by Union law or the law of the Member States.
Processor is a natural or legal person, authority, institution, or other body that processes personal data on behalf of the controller.
Recipient is a natural or legal person, authority, institution, or other body to whom personal data are disclosed, regardless of whether it is a third party or not. However, authorities that may receive personal data as part of a specific investigation mandate under Union or Member State law are not considered recipients.
j) Third Party
Third party is a natural or legal person, authority, institution, or other body other than the data subject, controller, processor, and persons who, under the direct authority of the controller or processor, are authorized to process personal data.
Consent is any freely given, specific, informed, and unambiguous expression of will by the data subject for the particular case, in an informed manner and unequivocally, by means of a statement or another clear affirmative action, indicating that the data subject agrees to the processing of personal data concerning him or her.

4. Collection of general data and information
The website of Bingo Germany GmbH collects a series of general data and information each time the website is accessed by a data subject or an automated system. This general data and information are stored in the server’s log files. The following data can be recorded: (1) types and versions of browsers used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system reaches our website (so-called referrers), (4) the sub-websites accessed via an accessing system on our website, (5) the date and time of access to the website, (6) an internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the internet service provider of the accessing system, and (8) other similar data and information used to avert risks in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.
