All online game variations of kNOW! are played with the Google Assistant. Some game variations additionally use so called actions which were programmed specifically for kNOW! and extend the functionalities of the Google Assistant. The following game variations are played with the Google Assistant (without our Ravensburger actions): Up 2 Three, Great Question!, Guesswork, Quick on the Draw and Tripped Up. All other game variations require additional Ravensburger actions.

Data processing by Google
Google Assistant is provided and operated by Google LLC. Whenever you use your Google Assistant, Google LLC collects and processes data.
This data is primarily the voice data recorded by Google Assistant which is being analysed and transformed into text data. This text data is used in order to further process your request – i.e. when you play kNOW! in order to process your answer to the quiz question. Depending on the question, Google Assistant may in some cases access your device location to provide responses that are specific to your location.
In addition, Google will save your responses on Google Assistant (voice and text) in a personal activity log for your Google account, and your use of Google Assistant will also be included in the creation of anonymous statistics. As the owner of your Google account, you have the option to delete the history of your personal activity log.
Data processing by Ravensburger

Google provides Ravensburger with access to the above text data that is then processed by a Ravensburger action to answer the quiz question. Ravensburger will not save or use this data in any other way.
Google also provides Ravensburger with access to the anonymous statistics mentioned above to enable Ravensburger to draw conclusions regarding usage of its actions and to optimise its service. Ravensburger will not save or use this data in any other way.
