Our range of e-learning courses are the only GDPR courses recommended by CEPAS/ Bureau Veritas for the video gaming industry. They will help you to understand the rules and requirements to help ensure that your organisation and games are compliant. Non-compliance could result in angered players, reputational damage as well as fines of up to 4% of annual global turnover (or €20 million, whichever is greater) and we are here to help you ensure a positive, compliant behaviour for your company. The following courses will be available to you from November 29th:

Games Developers’ Introduction to the Principles of Data Privacy and GDPR
Whenever a player enters a video game they are sharing their personal information (data) with the game company and other players. Under GDPR and some countries’ Data Protection Acts of 2018, there are rules that must be followed to protect and regulate the use of that data. This course is perfect for familiarising yourself with the rules and ensuring that your software is aligned.

QA Managers’ Introduction to the Principles of Data Privacy and GDPR
When testing a game and ensuring compliance with the new GDPR and Data Protection Acts, the QA team must ensure that the players’ personal information (data) is protected within the game environment and console. This course will increase your understanding of these rules and help you to ensure your QA team is compliant.

Product Owners’ Introduction to the Principles of Data Privacy and GDPR
GDPR and the Data Protection Act of 2018 aim to protect and regulate the use of personal information (data), including that data provided by game players. This course will help ensure you have the knowledge to comply.

Games Marketeers’ Introduction to the Principles of Data Privacy and GDPR
With the introduction of GDPR and the UK Data Protection Act of 2018, and with other countries and states introducing new data privacy laws, marketing to games players has become more complex. This course covers consent, legitimate interest and where that applies, age verification and parental consent for children.

Gaming Legal Teams’ Introduction to the Principles of Data Privacy and GDPR
Game players constantly share their personal data within a game, both as themselves and as characters. GDPR and the Data Protection Act of 2018 aim to protect and regulate use of that data. This course will provide you with insights on how best to meet your compliancy requirements.

Data Breach and how to manage it
Has your company taken the right measures to avoid data breaches and mitigate the risk? Is your third party network prepared? If you suffer a breach, do you have the right processes in place to manage it and ensure that you take the right remedial action? This course will look at how to avoid breaches of data privacy and how to minimise the effects.

Each course not only provides a detailed understanding of the legislation as it applies to video games but they are also tailored to help functional experts and business owners know how to apply it in their specific areas of expertise.
