Data Visibility

Other Player and Users may see parts of your Account Data, for example but not limited to seeing your Player name and progression metrics in an Online gamemode and seeing the messages you post to our communication channels. 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.

We use Unity Analytics to gather data about player behaviour to help with further development. Some of that data includes personally identifiable information (PII). You can opt out of gathering this PII data from an opt-out button in the game. To see how Unity handles this PII, see their Privacy Policy.

Personalized

Some features of a game experience can be personalized. You have the option to opt out. The first time you see an ad, the advertising provider displays a notice on your phone, giving you the option to opt in or out of PII collection. Subsequent ads also display a button that you can use to manage your data privacy options. This opt-out will opt you out of any PII collection done via Unity.

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.
