Effective 25 May 2018

We promise to protect your privacy and your data.  We never sell your data.  We collect and use your data only if you give us permission.

You have the following rights:

  • Right to access. You can see what data we have collected whenever you want.
  • Right to take your data. The data is yours.  You can copy or move it whenever you want.
  • Right to erasure. We'll erase your personal data whenever you say the word.  And even if you don't ask us to delete the data, we'll keep it only so long as it helps us serve you.  
  • Right to restrict use. If you want us to stop using your data, we'll stop.
  • Right to lodge a complaint. We will protect your privacy and we will honour your choices.  And if you feel we've failed in any way, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a data protection authority in your region. For details about how to contact your local data protection authority, please visit http://ec.europa.eu/justice/data-protection/bodies/authorities/index_en.htm.

Types of data we may need

We will only ask for data that helps our products delight you.  We'll only ask for the minimum data we need, depending on the products and services you use.  If you don't want to share your data, some of our products may not work, or work as well. Here is some information we might request:

  • Your contact information, including name, email address, phone number and shipping address, so that we can contact you or ship items you have requested
  • Your date of birth so we can verify your age
  • Your location, including the city and county in which you reside, so we can comply with local laws
  • Your device and network configuration, software for gaming and usage, and system performance so we can optimise your gaming hardware and software

Additional data collection can help us improve our products for gamers everywhere. To help us provide the very best experiences for you and gamers everywhere, we'd like to collect some additional information about your gaming system and its performance. But we won't collect anything unless you tell us it's okay. This additional data includes:

  • Your device or network's technical information so we can find problems with certain devices and configurations
  • Your error data so we can learn about the errors and fix them
  • Your crash data so we can find and fix bugs

We may analyse the data we've collected based on our interests in business forecasting and new product development. And, if you consent, we may use this data to identify certain audiences, including you, to receive games, apps, rewards or relevant advertising.
