The Studio may share User Data with the following persons for the following reasons:
The Studio's employees, professional advisors, and other agents, in order to provide maximum benefit from the Studio's services to Users at minimum cost.
Apple Inc. and other third-party game platforms that host the Game, in order to facilitate bug fixes, patches, gameplay updates, and the like.
Regulatory and law enforcement authorities, in order to facilitate the detection of unlawful activity or regulatory non-compliance.
The Studio may use User Data for the above reasons if the Studio deems it necessary to do so for a legitimate purpose. If a User is not satisfied with this, then the User has the right to object in certain circumstances. (See Section 10, “User Rights” below.)
For the delivery of direct marketing to Users via e-mail or other reasonable means, the Studio will obtain User consent, either via direct consent (“opt-in”) or implied consent (“soft opt-in”). A soft opt-in is a specific type of consent which applies when Users have previously interacted with the Studio (for example, if a User contacts the Studio to ask for details about a particular product, and the Studio is marketing similar products/services). Under "soft opt-in" consent, the Studio will take User consent as given unless specifically refused or withdrawn. For other types of marketing, the Studio will obtain explicit consent by, for example, providing a check box which signifies that the User has consent to marketing contact. Users have the right to withdraw consent for marketing contacts at any time.
The Studio complies with all Apple Arcade requirements regarding data security. If a User suspects any misuse or loss or unauthorized access to User Data, then immediately contact the Studio at email@example.com
Users have the following rights in relation to User Data:
The right to request copies of the information the Studio holds about that User at any time, or to request that the Studio modify, update or delete such information. The Studio will not charge a User for access to the data the Studio has about that User, unless the request is unreasonable or duplicative. The Studio may, in its discretion, refuse such a request where the law allows. If the Studio refuses such a request, the User may further request an explanation for the refusal.
The right to have a User's Data corrected if it is inaccurate or incomplete.
The right to request that the Studio delete or remove that User's Data from The Studio's systems.
The right to "block" the Studio from using User Data, or to limit the ways in which the Studio can use it.
The right to request that the Studio move, copy, or transfer a User's Data.
The right to object to the Studio's use of a User's Data, including where the Studio uses it for otherwise legitimate reasons.
Users may decline to provide Data, or, after agreeing, may subsequently withdraw permission for the Studio to collect Data. However, by declining or withdrawing, certain options and game modes may become unavailable, including online play.
To ask questions regarding User Data, to exercise any of the User Rights set out above, or to withdraw a User's consent to the processing of User Data (where consent is the Studio's legal basis for processing that User’s Data), contact William Chyr via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Game collects, uses, and discloses non-personally identifiable Data related to gameplay from under-age Users in the same way as for other Users, as described in this policy. The Game’s use of under-age Users’ data is limited to support internal operations of the game. The Studio does not knowingly collect other Data from anyone under the age of 13. If the Studio learns that it has collected Data from someone under the age of 13 without parental consent, then the Studio will take steps to delete that Data. Parents can learn more about how the Studio handles data by contacting email@example.com.
It is important that Data held by the Studio about Users are accurate and current. The Studio requests that Users inform the Studio if that Data changes while being stored by The Studio.
Users located in or subject to the jurisdiction of the European Economic Area (EEA) are advised that Data that the Studio collects may be stored and processed in and transferred to countries outside of the EEA. Please note that the Studio’s principal place of business is located within in the United States of America. Therefore, for the avoidance of doubt, Users should assume that User Data will be stored in, processed in, and transferred to countries outside of the EEA. Users who do not accept this should not access the Game.
The Studio may expand or reduce its business, and this may involve the sale or other transfer of control of all or part of the Studio. Data provided by Users will, where it is relevant to part of the Studio's business being transferred, be transferred along with that part, and the recipient shall be permitted to use the Data for the purposes for which it was originally supplied to The Studio. The Studio may also disclose User Data to a prospective purchaser of its business or any part thereof, so long as it uses reasonable diligence regarding such purchasers and provides reasonable safeguards for the protection of such Data.
