Apart from Absolute Games, your data can be accessed by others in the following situations:

A. Other Users
Other players and users may read the messages you have posted publicly to third party services.

B. Partners Working For Absolute Games
Absolute Games has partners to perform services for us. These partners process your data only at and according to Absolute Games's instructions to provide the Service, such as hosting, player support, advertising, analytics and fraud prevention.

C. Other companies and public authorities
In order to combat fraud and illegal activity, we may exchange data with other companies and organizations and provide it to public authorities in response to lawful requests.

We may also disclose your data based on your consent, to comply with the law or to protect the rights, property or safety of us, our players or others.

D. Advertising
The Service may contain advertisements from “Third-Party Services,” meaning companies other than Absolute Games may link to their own websites, online services, or mobile applications. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of these Third-Party Services. If you have any questions about how these Third-Party Services use your information, you should review their policies and contact them directly.

5. International Data Transfer

IMPORTANT: When you use our Services, your personal information may be sent to the United States and possibly other countries.

Our Service is global by nature and your data can therefore be transferred to anywhere in the world. Because different countries may have different data protection laws than your own country, we take steps to ensure adequate safeguards are in place to protect your data as explained in this Policy. Adequate safeguards that our partners may use include standard contractual clauses approved by EU Commission and the Privacy Shield certification in case of transfers to the USA.

6. Your Rights and Options

A. Opt-out of targeted advertising.
You can opt-out of interest-based advertising on mobile applications by checking the privacy settings of your Android or iOS device and selecting "limit ad tracking" (Apple iOS) or "opt-out of interest based ads" (Android).

B. Access the personal data we hold about you
If you request, we will provide you a copy of your personal data in an electronic format.

You can always withdraw your consent, for example by not using the Service. To contact us, please send us a message inside the game, or to support@absolutegames.com.

We will respond to all requests within a reasonable timeframe. You may also contact your local data protection authority for unresolved complaints.

7. Cookies and Similar Technologies

Like most online services, we and our partners use cookies and similar technologies to provide and personalize the Service, analyse use, target advertisements and prevent fraud. You can disable cookies in your browser settings, but some parts of the Service may then not function properly.

8. How Do We Protect Your Data

A. Security Safeguards
In order to help ensure a secure and safe player experience, we are continuously developing and implementing administrative, technical and physical security measures to protect your data from unauthorized access or against loss, misuse or alteration.

B. Data retention
We retain your data for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you the Service. We will for example periodically de-identify unused game accounts and we regularly review and de-identify unnecessary data. Note that if you ask us to remove your personal data, we will retain your data as necessary for our legitimate business interests, such as to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.

9. Age Limits

Generally speaking, most of our Services are not intended for children under the age of 13 (or under 16 for children located in the European Countries) (collectively, “Children”). Children are not permitted to use these Services, and we do not knowingly collect any personal information from Children.
Though our Services do not target Children as the primary audience, we may collect age information before allowing a user to proceed for certain Services. For users who identify themselves as Children in our age-gate on such Services, if we allow Children to use the Services, we will either provide a version of that Service that does not collect, use, or disclose “personal information” (as defined in the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”)), except as permitted by COPPA, or obtain legally valid parental consent.

If we learn that we have inadvertently gathered personal information that is not subject to a COPPA exception from a Child, we will delete that data as quickly as possible. If you believe that we might have any data from or about a child under the age of 16, please contact us.
