    We will collect data about you when you use our Services, including in the following situations:

    Whilst we always want you to be aware of how we are using your personal data, this does not necessarily mean that we are required to ask for your consent before we can use it. In the day to day running of our business, we may use your personal data without asking for your consent because:

    We ask for consent only for marketing purposes. Please refer to the section on "How we use your personal data for marketing" to read about marketing consents.


    You are not under a legal obligation to provide us with any of your personal data but please note that if you elect not to provide us with your personal data we may be unable to provide our products or services to you.


    We will only use and process data about you if we have one of the following reason to do so: to fulfill a software usage agreement, we have with you;



      a. Single database and backups located in Azure West Europe - Holland
      b. Temporary cache data located in Azure West Europe - Holland
      b. Temporary cache data located in Azure North Europe - Ireland
      b. Temporary cache data located in Azure US West - N. Virginia
      We store and use your data outside your country.
      We process data both inside and outside of the EU and rely on legally-provided mechanisms to lawfully transfer data across borders. Countries where we process data may have laws which are different, and potentially not as protective, as the laws of your own country.

    We may share your personal information with any other companies that are part of the Heimdal Security A/S.

    We may also share your information with selected third-parties outside of the Heimdal Security A/S including with:

    We may also share your personal data with third parties on a one-off basis, for example, if:

    We work with third-party companies who help us provide and improve our Services or who use advertising or related products, which makes it possible to operate our companies and provide free services to people around the world.

    Here are the types of third parties we can share information with about you: Advertising, Measurement and Analytics Services (Non-Personally Identifiable Information Only).

    We want our advertising to be as relevant and interesting as the other information you find on our Services. With this in mind, we use all of the information we have about you to show you relevant ads. We do not share information that personally identifies you (personally identifiable information is information like name or email address that can by itself be used to contact you or identifies who you are) with advertising, measurement or analytics partners unless you give us permission. We may provide these partners with information about the reach and effectiveness of their advertising without providing information that personally identifies you, or if we have aggregated the information so that it does not personally identify you. For example, we may tell an advertiser how its ads performed, or how many people viewed their ads or installed an app after seeing an ad or provide non-personally identifying demographic information (such as 25 year old female, in Madrid, who likes software engineering) to these partners to help them understand their audience or customers.

    Vendors, service providers, and other partners.

    We transfer information to vendors, service providers, and other partners who globally support our business, such as providing technical infrastructure services, analyzing how our Services are used, measuring the effectiveness of ads and services, providing customer service, facilitating payments, or conducting academic research and surveys. These partners must adhere to strict confidentiality obligations in a way that is consistent with this Data Policy and the agreements we enter into with them.


    We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to help guard your data in compliance with applicable privacy regulations. If transactions are offered on the Services, transaction information is transmitted to and from the Service in encrypted form using industry-standard Transport Layer Security (TLS used to be known as SSL) connections to help protect such information from interception. We strictly restrict authorized access to your data only to those persons who have a legitimate purpose to access it. We also have security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the data we process, like:

    We encourage you to be careful when sharing your data with other users when you use our Services like email or chats. Heimdal will NEVER ask for your password to be sent separately or in clear text. Anyone doing so is probably trying to steal your stuff.


    Here we have to inform about the possibility to opt-in or opt-out from email for example

    For personal data that we have about you:

    If you have submitted personal information to us, you may at all time request a transcript of the registrations we have about you and the use of the Software. We may ask for a fee for providing you with the information. The fee will be the maximum amount allowed under Danish Law. If you would like to receive a transcript of the registration please email us at support@heimdalsecurity.com stating your license number and the e-mail address submitted to us when you downloaded the Software. Within 30 days we will furnish you with a copy of our registrations in the format they are stored in. If you want a copy of all information we have stored about you as a licensee please also request this information.

    All the above can be done by contacting us at support@heimdalsecurity.com


    We will keep your information for as long as you are a player or customer of Heimdal Security A/S. We may keep your information for longer for research or statistical purposes. If we do, we will make sure your information is anonymized and non-traceable to you as a person. We will also keep it for longer if we cannot delete it for legal or regulatory reasons. We will, however, delete all data that is no longer necessary after a reasonable period. For example, any inactive Heimdal Account will after a period of two (2) years be deleted unless they contained games or other products you have purchased as we assume you would rather not have them deleted.

    We will also delete data upon request.


    All our payments are made through payment processors over a secure connection. Only the payment processors store your full payment card number or account information. During the order process, you will be directed on to pages hosted by our payment processor. Such pages will maintain the look and feel of the site but will have the trademark of the payment processor displayed. They will also offer you an automatic renewal of subscriptions and provide you with reminder notifications if your card has expired.


    We will add your details to our marketing database if:

    If your details are included in our marketing database we will send you marketing communications by email.

    If you wish to change your marketing preferences at any time you can do so by:

    We never share your contact details with third parties for marketing purposes but we do partner with a third-party advertising network to display advertising on the site and to manage our advertising on other websites. Our advertising network partner uses cookies and web beacons to collect information about your activities on the site and on other websites and uses this to provide you with targeted advertising based on your interests. Please note that opting out of receiving targeted advertising will not prevent you from receiving generic advertising.


    Our site may, from time to time, contain links to and from the websites of our partner networks, advertisers, and affiliates. If you follow a link to any of these websites, please note that these websites have their own privacy policies and that we do not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies. Please check these policies before you submit any personal data to these websites.
