Your Rights Regarding Personal Data
Pursuant to the personal data legislation, you as a data subject are entitled to:
We respect our users’ preferences concerning cookies and similar techniques. However, you should bear in mind that blocking cookies can affect the functionalities of our services.
Please note that it is not possible to identify the user based on cookies alone, and the service cannot know, for example, the user’s name or email address, unless the user has specifically provided them for the service. If the user is registered as a user of our digital service such as the Oma Steam House application, we can combine observed data of the user’s service use to the personal data provided to us by the user.
Third-party cookies and social plugins on Steam House’s services
First-party cookies are cookies placed on the user’s device by the website displayed in the address bar. In addition to first-party cookies, our services may include third-party cookies of advertising networks, providers of analytics and monitoring services, social media services, etc.
We use tools such as Google Analytics to monitor the use of our services. Data stored in cookies used by Google tools (such as IP addresses) can also be sent to Google servers around the world for storing. Due to this, these data may be processed on servers located outside the user’s country of residence. Google uses this data to analyse how users browse website contents and to compile summary reports on the use of websites. Google also prepares reports on the use of services offered in connection with websites and produces statistics on the use of the Internet. Google can also use the data to customise the content of advertisements shown to users based on their previous browsing history. Furthermore, Google may disclose the data to third parties if required so by law, or if Google has commissioned a third party to process the data. Google does not link user IP addresses to any other data stored by Google.
Our services may also include social plugins, such as the Facebook Like button or the Twitter Like and Share buttons. Although such social plugin buttons may be visible on our services, the related content comes directly from the service provider in question. Social plugins on our service recognise if the user has logged into the service in question and can then display customised content for the user in the social plugin on the website. Social media services using social plugins can collect data about the user’s visit in accordance with their valid privacy policies. The services in question do not disclose the data they collect to Steam House unless the user has provided their explicit consent to do so.

We use session cookies, which expire once the user closes the browser. In addition, we also use persistent cookies, which remain on the user’s device for a specified period of time or until the user removes them. The expiration time of persistent cookies ranges from a few months to a few years.
Data protection and data security on the Internet and on mobile applications
Please note that whenever you use the Internet, you are using an open data network. We cannot guarantee the privacy of information located in an open data network. We recommend that you use your SSL-encrypted connection.
Please note that, in addition to Steam House’s Privacy Statement, the terms and conditions of the relevant service provider are also applied to Steam House mobile application available, for example, from Google Play.
Updating the Privacy Statement
Steam House reserves the right to update this Privacy Statement, as Steam House regularly needs to develop its business processes and related policies, and also to follow up and comply with the changing personal data protection legislation.
