Wherever possible, Brain Games is using cookies that are deleted as soon as the browser is closed (session cookies).

Additionally, Brain Games also uses cookies that are stored in your computer for longer periods of time, if need be. Such cookies are used for example to gather data in case this webpage is visited for use of such data in statistic assessments and in order to estimate and provide that our website is more user-friendly.

On our site, we use Google Analytics, a website usage tracking service of Google Inc. (‘Google’) which involves saving of cookies in the user’s computer to enable tracking of website usage by the user.

The information on usage of this website obtained through cookies is usually transmitted to and stored in a Google server in the USA.

It means that Google first compacts and thus depersonalizes your IP address on our website inside the EU member states or in other states that are party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The full IP address can be transmitted to the Google server in the USA and compacted there only in exceptional cases. Google will use this information on our orders to assess your usage of the website for the production of summary website activity reports and to provide us, as the website operator, further services concerning website and Internet usage.
