theHunter: Call of the Wild reviews and comments

About theHunter: Call of the Wild™ by Avalanche Studios Experience complex Animal Behavior, dynamic Weather events, day and Night cycles, simulated Ballistics, highly realistic Acoustics and an Insight into various Background Connections of the Game. Review updates: 27.02.2019 Evidence of data collected Does not exist, nor is there any Clues during the actual Game. Only when a Window opens with a crash dump image can a small Link to the "Privacy Policy" be found there ... Alternatively for resourceful People via their Website [avalanchestudios.com] Data protection laws and EU Directive 95/46/EC on Data Protection collected and processed. However, As described in Section 2 (Use and Disclosure of Information), Avalanche may disclose Your Information to Third parties, some of whom may be located in Countries outside the European Economic Area ("EEA"). You should be aware that Data protection Laws in these Countries may not comply with EU data protection laws and that By Using the Service of Your Consent, you agree to have Your personal Information in Countries outside the EEA Transferred and processed there. Very nicely worded. In Plain Language, this means that once again it is taken and recycled, and this is also available for different Service Providers;] In addition, a separate Tracking Service is integrated into the Game, which records a lot of Data from the Player. This is where the Saying "The Hunter becomes a Hunted himself" comes into Play. If you absolutely want data, not informed, create Contracts to the Detriment of the Customers and, of course, hold your Hand, the data Flow (as far as possible) is simply capped. Easy! As expected, a Request for Details of individual Addresses and Content was ignored by Avalanche.
