General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
We are dedicated to upholding the highest standards of data protection and privacy for our users and recognize the importance of safeguarding personal data and respecting the rights of individuals under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
One of the key aims and requirements of the GDPR is to keep EU citizens informed of how businesses collect, use, share, secure, and process their personal data.
The GDPR defines an array of legal terms at length:
- Personal data means any information relating to a natural person that can be identified directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, email, location data, IP addresses, identification card number an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
- Data processing means the activities carried out on a personal data of an individual. These activities include the collection, recording, organization, structuring, storage, adaptation, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination, alignment, restriction, erasure, or destruction of personal data.
- Data subject refers to any individual person who can be identified, either directly or indirectly, through 'Personal data' and whose data is processed. Our apps' users and site visitors are 'Data subjects'.
- Data controller means the natural, legal person or other body which, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data. As we handle data, Playcus Limited is a data controller.
- Data processor — A third party that processes Personal data on behalf of a Data controller. The GDPR has special rules for these individuals and organizations. They could include cloud servers or email service providers.
As we process data, we are devoted to protection and accountability principles outlined in Articles 5.1-2:

Integrity and confidentiality — we process data to ensure appropriate security, integrity, and confidentiality (e.g. by using encryption).
