Affiliated companies are entities that control, are controlled by or are under common control with us.

1.2. Changes to the Privacy Policy. Although most changes are likely to be minor, we may change our Privacy Policy from time to time, and in our sole discretion. We encourage visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to the Privacy Policy. Your continued use of the Service after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance the changes.

1.3. Terms of Service. This Privacy Policy and the Terms of Service (the “Terms of Service”), which is incorporated herein by reference, are an agreement (collectively, this “Agreement”) between you (“You” or “your” or “you”), a user of the Service, and us. By accessing or using the Service, you acknowledge and agree to this Agreement. If you choose to not agree with this Agreement, you may not use the Service.

2. CHILDREN’S PRIVACY. This section explains our information collection, disclosure, and parental consent practices with respect to information provided by children under the age of 13, or the applicable age of consent in your jurisdiction (“child” or “children”).

2.1. COPPA. The Service complies with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”). We don’t knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13 in violation of COPPA with the exception of a persistent device identifier for our internal operations, and if in the event that a user identifies himself or herself as a child under the age of 13 through a support request, we will not collect, store or use, and will delete in a secure manner, any personal information of such user. For more information about COPPA and general tips about protecting children’s online privacy, please visit OnGuard Online.

2.2. Information Retention. In any instance that we collect personal information from a child, we will retain that information only so long as reasonably necessary to fulfill the activity request or allow the child to continue to participate in the activity, and ensure the security of our users and our services, or as required by law. In the event we discover we have collected information from a child in a manner inconsistent with COPPA’s requirements, we will delete the information as quickly as possible.

2.3. Third Parties and Contextual Advertising. Third Parties may collect a persistent device identifier, such as IP address unique device identifier, advertising identifier (when available on a device) etc. We do not collect and do not allow third parties to collect from children any personal information that may identify an individual (other than the persistent device identifier which is collected for the limited purpose of supporting the internal operations of the games or mobile applications). We do accept advertisements from third party ad networks which may be displayed in the Service. These third party ad networks are selected to preserve compliance with applicable privacy laws, including but not limited to COPPA, in performance of their services and serve only “contextual advertisements”, which are advertisements that are served without connection to any behavioral tracking elements.

We may disclose any information, including, without limitation, Personal Information that we deem necessary, in our sole discretion and without your prior permission, to comply with any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental request.

Please visit the applicable social media network’s privacy policy to better understand their data collection practices and choices they make available to you. The privacy policy of the social media network controls the collection, use and disclosure of all personal information transmitted to that network.

Please note that you may opt-out of receiving local notifications by changing your device settings.

8. SECURITY.

We have put in place physical, electronic, and managerial procedures designed to help prevent unauthorized access, to maintain data security, and to use correctly the information we collect online. These safeguards vary based on the sensitivity of the information that we collect and store.
