Does GAMEGOS Share My Information?
Apart from GAMEGOS, your data can be accessed by others in the following situations:
Other players and users may, for example, see your profile data in ingame activities and read the messages you have posted.
GAMEGOS has partners to perform Services for us. These partners process your data only at and according to GAMEGOS’ instructions to provide the Service, such as hosting, player support, advertising, analytics and fraud prevention.

The Service includes features from our partners, such as social media interaction tools and ingame advertising. These partners may access your data and operate under their own privacy policies. This access is not considered as “selling” personal information as used in the general sense. To the extent this practice is interpreted to constitute a “sale” under the CCPA, please see the “Third-Party Data Collection and Use of End-User Information” and “Disclosure for California Consumers (CCPA)” sections of this document.
How Does GAMEGOS Secure My Data?
Personal and non-personal information help us improve the quality of our products, services, and content, and/or technically manage our website or applications (including but not limited to logging your IP address to monitor traffic).
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.
We have taken appropriate steps and followed industry standards to secure all personal data stored in our systems. All transactions processed in are being kept with the highest security level protocols, ensuring that no one can access or use personal information in an unauthorized manner. 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.
However, while we take responsible measures to protect your personal information, the internet is not a 100% secure environment. We cannot guarantee the absolute security of all information transmitted or electronically stored. We disclaim any liability for any unauthorized access to, disclosure or damage to, theft of, or loss of any personal information. By using our website and/or our software, you acknowledge that you understand and agree to assume these risks.
Please note that if you ask us to remove your personal data, we will retain your data as needed for our legitimate business interests; such as to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.

Right to Know and Right to Delete Your Data
For any of the personal information described above, you can request to know what personal information we collected, disclosed, used and granted access to, and also request that we delete your personal information at any time. Our partners may access your data and operate under their own privacy policies. This access is not considered as “selling” personal information as used in the general sense.

We may decline a request to exercise the right to know and right to deletion in some cases, such as in a case where we are unable to identify you.
After verifying your request and identity, we will delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your personal information from our system records, unless retaining your information is necessary for us or our service providers to complete a transaction with you, detect security issues or fraud, fix errors, comply with legal obligations, exercise freedom of speech or another right provided by law, or for other law related issues.
