Privacy policy

Game Habitat cares about personal integrity and the protection of personal data. All our processing of personal data complies with current personal data legislation. This policy contains information about how we process personal data. 

Personal data is any information that relates to an identified or identifiable living individual.


Game Habitat DevHub AB (reg. no. 559166-3710), Game Habitat Southern Sweden AB (reg. no. 559100-1630), and Game Habitat Southern Sweden Ideell förening (reg. no. 802476-3008) are personal data controllers. The three legal entities are all integrated parts of Game Habitat. The description and information in this policy apply for all three legal entities. They are jointly referred to as the “organization” or ”Game Habitat” in this policy. In a specific case, the processing of personal data may be done solely by one of the entities, which then assumes the role as processor in that particular case.

Most of the time, personal data is provided by the data subjects, directly or indirectly, when we are contacted via email or our website, an individual signs up for an event we host or our newsletter, or interact with us through our social media channels. We also collect data through third party sources, such as Mailchimp, and Eventbrite.

Receivers in other countries

We do not sell, distribute or otherwise make personal data available to any third party, with the following exceptions:

Personal data may also be transferred to organizers, or suppliers to the organizers, of events that data subjects participate in and which are facilitated by Game Habitat.

Personal data is stored in third party systems, Asana, Google Workspace, Eventbrite and Mailchimp, as well as on respective social media providers’ servers.

We store personal data for as long as it’s necessary to fulfill the purpose for which the information was collected, that is, as long as we have a contractual relationship with the data subject, as long as it is prescribed by law, or as long as there is another legal basis for processing, such as our legitimate interest or the data subject’s explicit consent. When the purpose of the treatment no longer exists, we remove or anonymize the personal data.
