Who is Cavern Games
What is the legal basis for collecting personal data?
The law sets out a number of different reasons for which we may collect and process your personal data, such as:

When collecting your personal data, we'll always make clear to you which data is necessary in connection with a particular service that we provide.
- Contractual Oblications: In certain circumstances, we need your personal data to comply with our contractual obligations. For example, if you order an item from us, we will collect and store your address details to deliver your purchase, and pass them to our payment provider and our delivery provider.
- Legal Compliance: We may, if required to by law, collect and process our data to fulfil our legal oblications, for example, we can pass on the details of people involved in fraud or other criminal activity affecting Cavern Games to law enforcement.
- Legitimate Interest: In specific situations, we require your data to pursue our legitimate interests in a way which might reasonably be expected as part of running our business, such as providing personalised offers based on your purchase history.

How long do we keep your personal data?
Whenever we collect or process our personal data, we'll only keep it for as long as is necessary for the purpose for which it was collected.
