7. Is Sensitive Information Collected?
8. What Choices Do You Have Regarding the Collection, Use, and Distribution of Your Personal Information and How Can You Check What Personal Information Is Held About You?
You have the right to see what personally identifiable information we hold about you if you request it. If your request is particularly complex or requires detailed searching of our records, there may be a cost to you in order for us to provide you with this information.
Other Methods of Accessing and Controlling your Information: If you no longer want us to make active use of your information, you may send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Place “Delete My Account” in the subject line and include your first name, last name, e-mail address and user ID number for the social network site from which you access our Games (if applicable) in the body of the e-mail. We will respond to your request within thirty (30) days. Please note that certain records, for example those pertaining to payments or customer service matters, will be retained for legal and accounting purposes. If you have sent or posted content on the service, we may not be able to delete it.
You have the ability to opt-out of: receiving information and marketing emails from us; publishing your recent Game activity to your social network site page; bookmarking or displaying the Game page to others, and of course the ability to delete our Game and rescind any permissions required to operate such Game, at any time.
It is our responsibility to keep accurate, complete and up-to-date records, so any changes you make in the Game regarding your personally identifiable information will go into effect as quickly as technically possible. We reserve the right to retain the non-personally identifiable data collected during your use of the Game.
9. Children’s Privacy
We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13. If we discover that personal information is the information of a child under 13, we will attempt to delete the information as soon as possible. We encourage parents to spend time online with their children and urge parents to instruct their children to never give out their real names, e-mail addresses or phone numbers without parental permission when using the Internet.
If you believe that we have inadvertently collected information on your child under the age of 13 via our Site or Games, we ask that you contact us so that we can delete that information. Please email us at email@example.com or via our physical details below.
10. California Residents: Your California Privacy Rights
Under the laws of the State of California, California Residents who have an established business relationship with us may choose to opt out of our disclosure of personal information about them to third parties for direct marketing purposes. As detailed above, our policy is not to disclose personal information collected online to a third party for direct marketing purposes without your approval. If you choose to opt-out at any time after granting approval, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Do Not Track Signals: In September 2013, California enacted amendments to the California Online Privacy Protection Act (California Business & Professions Code §§22575-22579) which require operators of websites to disclose how they respond to “do not track” (DNT) signals from browsers used by consumers or other mechanisms that provide consumers a choice regarding the collection of personally identifiable information about the consumer’s online activities over time and across different websites or online services. While some newer browsers have incorporated “Do Not Track” features which, when turned on, send a signal or preference to the web sites you visit indicating that you do not wish your online activity to be tracked, a DNT protocol that can be implemented across multiple devices and sites has not yet been widely adopted. Currently, our computer system does not support, and cannot act on DNT signal headers that we may receive; accordingly, the choices that we provide you concerning out collection and use of personally identifiable information will continue to operate as described in this policy.
For Minors: California residents under the age of 18 have the right to remove, or request the removal of, content or information they have posted to the Forums. This request can be made by emailing us at email@example.com. Please again be advised that any information posted to the Forums is publicly viewable. We strongly recommend that all users avoid posting personal or sensitive information at any time.
Please note that residual copies of User Content and/or information that have been deleted may remain on our backup servers. We are not required to remove posted User Content or information if it has been rendered anonymous or if we are required by law to retain it. Additionally, we do not have control over third parties (e.g., other users) who may have copied or reposted the User Content or information.
11. Changes to the Policy
We reserve the right to change this Policy at any time. If we decide to change this Policy, we will post those changes on this page and update the date at the top of the page. The changes will be effective when posted. We will post a notice on http://www.greenbacklabs.com and/or contact you if material changes have been made to the way we handle your personal information. Please check this page on a regular basis so that you remain aware of what information we collect and how we use it.
